a GW ork i am working on for local painting contesst

Recommended Posts

Good day, i have been painting for a little while, but recently i have tried to push myself further... this is my second mini to do for LGS painting contest (i won the first one they did) .... have about a week left to finish him. so i am planning a little more highlights and more work on the weapons....

 

if it wasn't for a local friend i would still be painting in blocked colors and calling it done, but he keeps pushing me to try more hah! 

 

i am open for input and criticism on him... :)

He doesn’t appear “3D” enough. While your highlights are good your shadows needs to be much deeper.

Don't know why I keep pushing you on this one, I'm competing too.

 

because you like talking about the hobby as much as i do? :)

i have another layer of a black wash drying right now in the sections between the plates, i got a little carried away with the blue at first and have had to work backwards to get some of it darker again ... and still scared to mess with the fur to much.

A wash is good on the chainmail and the fur, but I wouldn't do that on the rest of him unless you're really trying to speed paint for an army. Try manually placing your shadows with darker tones of the existing colors. It gives you more control over the shadows.

i did that a couple of times near the crevices and sections of the armor but it didn't seem to stand out much, so went with the black wash. i guess the right word would be a pin wash? i lined it just into the creases and such and not over the whole armor, will look at it once it dries tomorrow and take more photos.

I think the light might be to bright in the pictures and it’s getting a bit washed out.

Yeah, there's some good black lining in places that don't show up here. And that fur actually looks pretty slick.

      Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed.
       
      This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find.
      I am very pleased with how he turned out though.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is my version of a Games workshop Aragorn. I didn't want to paint him as Aragorn since I have two of these same minis so I decide to go for a purple skinned, white haired drow ranger.  I'm going to use him as a swordsman named Vigo in my Rangers of Shadowdeep games.
      This mini was a blast to paint, I like how the highlights turned out. Thanks for looking!

      Here you go, folks, my second of the four Warhammer warbands I've got (Here's the first). When I first started painting these, I was a bit worried about them looking just like a blob of gold, but I must say, I'm quite pleased with how the colors look. And that bird... That bird is my favorite. I tried speckling its breast and around its neck, but it just looks blotchy. Oh well.

      So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future!
       
      As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good!


      The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous.
       
       
      The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!
