77040 Bones Satheras, Male Warlock, Limited Palette


Recommended Posts

Thank you all for your comments.

 

This was the first time I have really worked with Zinc White and I think I'm in love. It's a much lower tinting-strength white than Titanium White, which sounds bad, but turns out to be really useful. Mixing subtle gradients is easy and I didn't see any of the graininess than often happens with Titanium White.

 

The exercise was really interesting. As often happens, the restriction of only using two hues meant that I had to really exercise my creativity. The range of browns was interesting and I think effective. The purple was so strongly tinting that I found it hard to use it to get color shifts without overwhelming whatever I mixed it with.

 

The NMM in most cases was really weak, partly because I need much more work on NMM and partly because I'd like to do a bit more color shifting in the shadows and highlights, but the pauldrons were the best of that. And I know quite a lot more about how all of the paints I used here work now than when I started.

      Here she is - she is an NPC in my campaign... friend or foe? Tried a darker skin but not sure I quite got it. Well, I was pleased even if her eyebrows are a bit odd.

      Alright.  So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years.  An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?

      I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted.  I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
      That said, I love painting similar things.  It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.

      I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      For the RCL Zodiac Challenge  - the Taurus not one of the more creative choices like Libra or Aquarius. 
      It is my Adopted Star sign because if Horoscopes are at all useful it is when they make guesses at problems or opportunities based on the personality connected to the sign. 
      by personality I fit  like 3 of 4  tendencies, and 0 of 4 of my birth sign. 
       
      knocked this guy out in a few hours this morning.

      My kid loves stealing my dice.
      So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet.
       
      Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
