June 23 and 24: What is a mini technique or style you would like to learn? Will you be able to find time to try it this weekend?

 

Anything other than my current Fine-detail-with-a-roller tendency would be good.

 

The ship is going round Cape Hope in winter weather at present, so I shalln't be doing anything except concentrate on not falling over.

I would really like to learn how to properly two-brush-blend (with decent results) and I am trying to learn how to do NMM because it looks so much better in my opinion.

 

I doubt I will do either this weekend.

Eventually, I'll take the dive into OSL and NMM, but not this weekend. I was consitering OSL on the Dwarf Miners I've started on, but seeing as how it took my several months to get the Thunderers done, I'm keeping things simple with them so that I may actually have the army done by Christmas.

Using Color Shifting paint. I have the Kyphrixis (clear) that I think would make an awesome crystal dragon.

I'd like to try oils on minis. Not this weekend, though. I'll be doing docks and Cavernscapes and hopefully some work on an entry for Reapercon.

I'd like to learn this mysterious Finishing technique. It's a mystical art wherein your minis move from the Shelf of Shame to the Shelf of Display. Probably not ::P:

Painting. Just painting. I've been assembling so much 40K lately that I haven't had time to put brush to mini, best I've been able to do so far is prime with Macragge Blue spray and move on to the next thing.

I'd like to learn non-metallic metals, you can get some really nice effects with it, but I've tried learning it before I don't have the patience.

I'm still enough of a newbie that it's all new to me. ;) My main need is to just paint more honestly as finding time is the biggest challenge. That said, I do want to try osl at some point. Won't be this weekend though as none of my current projects have a need for it. Soon though!

There are always things to learn & new ideas to try, but I think I just plod along in my usual fashion.

I need to practice some stuff I have already tried (directional lighting, NMM on armor), but I want to work on techniques to do so and additives. 

 

This weekend? Nope. I am up north in Canada trying to find housing. No painting until my last CMPA meetup in July I think.

I also would like to try out oils on minis, since my studio is currently geared up for oil painting.

 

I should probably prep and prime one to work on between 2d stuff while I have paints and brushes out.

OSL and NMM. Right now it doesn't look like I'll have time to play around too much as I've got a pile of stuff to do, painting and otherwise.

In all honesty?  Probably cell-shaded type techniques out of sheer curiosity.  That and weathering in general, which may or may not be related to a desire to get into GunPla.

 

OSL is a technique I definitely want to learn at some point, and probably the same with NMM.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
