Listening to your video... You may want to slow your speech down a bit...  might cut back on the coffee maybe.  :poke:

I just listened to it. :winkthumbs:

 

People often commented that Red (from Overly Sarcastic Productions) talks very fast, and your manner of speech is nearly identical to hers! It's... it's genetic? ::o:Thank goodness for the subtitles. [P.S. If you slow down the video to 0.75x speed, it's easier to follow, but you sound drunk. :upside:]

 

For some other constructive criticism, the text you add is too large and shows up for too brief a period. I'm used to adding and reading subtitles to everything I watch, but these were all over the place as my eyes kept zipping from one place on the screen to the other. Being hand written also makes it slightly more difficult to process quickly.

 

As for the rest. Magenta FTW! "Quinacridone" is quite a word.

Watched it the other day. Good video, good information. It's... apparent... where Red gets it*. I would definitely like to see more of this!

 

Do you have a video on your syllabus about "impossible" color mixes, like purple+green=blue?  That could be fun, either on its own or as part of a larger video about mixing.

 

 

*"It" in this case being vocal rate, tone and inflection. Your voices are not the same, but it's clear they are related.

Fantastic start! I consider myself an analytical left-side brain personality, so I really enjoyed the science, details and comparison! Style reminds me very much like GGP Grey. Like robinh said, perhaps slow down by about 20-25% to give viewers time to catch up a bit. Otherwise, the amount of information to pacing is very good. Not too much to be overwhelming, but not too little as to leave a bunch of unanswered questions. Looking forward to seeing more!

Yes! I’ve even filmed* some footage** of mixing it up on a palette. I’m doing one on mixed green first, though.

 

I have a syllabus ... It’s more than I thought it was going to be. I hope to be alternating between paint reviews, surprising color mixes, techniques for tricky subjects, ways of seeing, and studio practices. Maybe with some art history in the mix if it works out.

 

 

 

 

*Now there’s an obsolete term

**Extra double plus so for that one

Sounds awesome, I can't wait. Mixing colors has always been problematic for me.

The day I start recording the second script would be the day the apartment building across the street starts taking out its windows with an angle grinder.

I just watched your video, and I liked it. I agree with much of the pointers that have already been mentioned, yet I'd still like to offer/reinforce some notes if I may? All comments are meant respectfully and constructively.

 

General things I always look for and appreciate in videos:

  1. We've never met (maybe one day at a con perhaps) but I found your voice pleasant - thank you!
  2. Your sound quality is excellent. By that I mean you didn't have issues where "p", "s" and other letters came off harsh on your microphone. Your voice wasn't too soft or too loud. Again, thank you.
  3. You wore gloves when your hands were shown on the screen, but for me I cringe every time someone does a tutorial where they are zoomed in on their hands and they have (a) untrimmed nails or (b) dirt caked under the nails. So thank you yet again for this.

Specific notes on presentation:

  1. Yep you could slow down on your talking speed a bit, as mentioned. As we have never met, I have no clue if that is just your normal speed or not. Only advice I can say is just talk like you are having a regular conversation with someone, even if you have a script in front of you.
  2. It's a LOT of information for a 7ish minute video. I'm going to have to rewatch it at least twice more to make sure I got it all. You might want to display a brief outline at the beginning of the main points you are covering in the video, i.e. what I took away from this was the topic was pigments.
  3. Sometimes the text that describes terms you mention comes and goes too quickly (ex. undertone, masstone, etc). Might want to extend the air time those get, or verbally say what they are, especially since you state this is the criteria you are testing with the paints. Though that may also depend on who you intend to be your audience (beginner/intermediate/advanced painters).

I look forward to your next video!

      Looks like the recorded classes from the RVE have started to be posted to Reaper Youtube channel for those who may have missed any of it. Looks like they are being posted alphabetically by title.
       
      So they don't get buried on the channel as more videos get posted to their channel over time, or for anyone who visits the forums, I'm starting an index here and will update as I see more videos posted.

      Coincidentally, I had this figure very nearly done two days ago when the sad news of Diana Rigg’s passing was made public.
       
      It always was a tribute to her incandescent portrayal of Emma Peel in the old British TV show “The Avengers”, but now it’s a memorial as well. Requiescas in pacem, Ms. Rigg.
       
      The figure is “Pandora King (Classic)” from Crooked Dice miniatures. Crooked Dice has a minis game based on cult TV and they’ve produced a lot of different figures suitable for that sort of storytelling.

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
       
      Technical notes:

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.
       
      CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.
