89019 Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai as a Bronze Statue by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

Once again I really miss the definition of different parts of the figure, using a thin wash or lining.

That's especially visible on the face, which on my screen has hardly any features recognizable.

But that's my only criticism against this figure.

I really like the basing and the way the figure has been covered in leaves and vines.

I painted it as a statue because the face had very little detail, a wash wouldn't help here, it would have become a blob.

So for this one I didn't bother.

I'm now painting a very small Fighting Monk, I will see if I can give that one some more definition.

Great idea.  He has a nice weathered look.

 

Thank you!

Being one of the first Bones his face wasn't really good so I made him into this statue.

Love the idea and I think it is very well executed. Also the plants look very realistic. My only suggestion would be: The base would look better painted in black. I mean all what is white now.

Thank you!

The base is painted with the Reaper Stone Triad to make it look like the statue is on a stone plinth of some sort.

The plants are all flock and leafs from several brands.

Great idea turning this into a statue. I wonder if there is a way to make the face look like the stone has crumbled.... Really like the use of the vegetation.

Hmm hadn't thought of that, maybe next time I will try something like that.

Crumbling stone might be a good way to hide the lacking features.

      Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades.
       
      My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!
