Sam is doing well, despite all the colours you have threw over him haha. For the case that this yellow hair was not the absolutely intention: Try something like bleached bone or beige with bit bit of ocher for blonde hair. The more ocher you add the more yellowish it becomes. Blonde hair also works with beige (bleached bone) only, but this is more the haircolour of Legolas for example. You can shade it with all kinds of brown depending on what blonde you wish to get exactly. For Legolas you can use bleached bone and shade it with grey or with a greyish brown. But I know you and your partially very own "taste" and so I feel unsure if this yellow was maybe pure intention lol.

 

@Glitterwolf : No I didn`t want to summone you both, because I assumed you would anyway check out the news at this thread, but it seems SisterMaryNapalm has missed the updates and so I edit my post and summone you now.

Funny fact; the yellow isn't yellow. This is a browntone, the good old Spearstaff Brown from Citadel. Ok, it's a Brownyellow. But I think the Problem from the pictures are, that they are too bright at the top. I make photos only with a mobile and I think there is the maximum reached what my mobile can. Now I've found the word I''m searching for; overexposed ::):

@Glitterwolf and @SisterMaryNapalm I really cannot imagine that one of you both really meant it as bad as it sounds. Seems there is a little bit tension in the air today. Best you shake hands and ignore the bad vibes. I see you both have got a different approaches when it comes to giving feedback and I find both ways of giving feedback constructive. This is the main thing which counts. We are all different and so we all have our own way to react onto things and to give feedback, as long as no one gets hurt and as long as feedback is constructive any way of giving feedback is cool. In other forums there is the problem that no one gives feedback at all: This is a problem!

I am watching Garbosch's work somewhere else. But as I am not left alone after a problem was already solved that in fact never existed and am still summoned by force, well here I am and I would like to say a word about this. To make any misunderstanding impossible, for that I will do something I normally never do - except from birthdays, which I always comment in German. To not bother anyone else with that, I'll put in spoilers and after that this topic is closed - at least for me. I will not answer to it anymore, only follow Garbosch's progress.

 

Spoiler

Liebe vhaidra,

 

Wir kennen uns nicht. Damit fängt es an.

Ich finde es unhöflich, in einer Moderatorenmanier mit jemandem zu sprechen, den man im Forum nicht kennt (geschweige denn privat) - über ein Problem, dessen Hintergrund man nicht kennt oder nicht versteht oder nicht mitbekommen hat, dass da gar kein Problem existiert. Auch von Spannung in der Luft zu reden und zu meinen, man müsste einen Vorschlag zum Händeschütteln machen, weil bad vibes und bla, kommt nicht gut an und wird auch nicht gut aufgenommen. Vor allem nicht von mir.

 

Dass Glitterwolf eine Sache persönlich nimmt, über die gar nicht geredet wurde, ist eine Sache - nämlich die seine. Das hat sicherlich einen Hintergrund und den kennt er und damit muss er sich auseinandersetzen. Sowohl Glitterwolf als auch ich kennen einander schon einige Zeit und haben bisher jede unserer Differenzen - ob wirklich existent oder eingebildet - auf die eine oder andere Weise beigelegt. Und wenn's beim Schlammcatchen war. So etwas macht man nicht öffentlich, sondern spricht sich privat aus.

 

Sollte dann tatsächlich ein Vermittler notwendig sein, kenne ich genügend Leute im Forum, die wir ansprechen können. Sollte ich Dich besser kennenlernen, werde ich Dich unter Umständen auch dazu zählen - bis dahin: Vielen Dank für den Versuch, aber in diesem Fall appelliere ich einfach einmal an die Zurückhaltung.

 

Vielen Dank und einen schönen Tag.

 

P.S.: We are all different and so we all have our own way to react onto things and to give feedback, as long as no one gets hurt and as long as feedback is constructive any way of giving feedback is cool. In other forums there is the problem that no one gives feedback at all: This is a problem!

- Ja. Anders herum ist es aber auch Mist, denn das schreckt andere Kommentatoren ab.

 

If there is anything else, you can always PM me.

 

P.S.: Garbosch, I'll monitor your progress on both Reaper Forum and TTW - but I guess a response at TTW is better understandable, isn't it?

In English, the meaning of criticism is a more neutral one than in German. It counts as positive as well as negative.

This evening I'll begin to paint on the next fellow, Frodo. This time I'll try to follow @SisterMaryNapalm advice to paint more shadows. I'm curious about this.

      Because I have finaly off a couple of days,  I`ll take the chance to upload one wip project more. But that`s enough for the moment.
       
      This will gonna be a diorama in the end and I started it as group project at my german home forum the Bemalforum. Sometimes we just consider a topic and the members of the forum try to keep to this topic with their projects. I started this as group project with the topic "Make love not war". I didn`t get it finished in time, but I don`t mind and nevertheless finish it as I have planned it.
       
      Concept:
      As said the topic is "Make love not war" and so this was a good opportunity for creating a battle scene with antagonists such as "Love" vs. "Hate", "Good" vs. "Evil" and so on. In the case here the Space Marine represents love and the good one. Haha. Alyx is representing hate and the bad one. This whole project has a meaning and a message and it is: "Hate is little fearful child and love is a huge, self contended Space Marine able to protect you."
       
      I drilled a hole into the gun of the Space Marine and later he will shoot with flowers LOL. I will also add anything peaceful into his empty hand (I still consider what exactly, suggestions for the empty hand are welcome). The side of the base where the Space Marine is standing on will be very colourful with green gras, plants and most of all with a lot of colourful flowers. The side of the base where Alyx is standing on will be monochromatic black/white as herfself is also only painted monochromatic black/white. The only colour which will be added later to Alyx and her side of the base will be bloodred. Her fist will be covered with blood later and it will drop on the base too.
       
      Base:
      What I wish to create here are 2 different spheres. One colourful and bright, full of hope and love (Space Marine`s side), the other one (Alyx`s side) liveless dark and just dried  and dead plants and simply everything will be painted only in black/white apart from the blood at Alyx`s fist and on the base. Maybe I will put the Teddy (she is originally holding in her hand) on her side of her base too and paint it still colourful as a symbol of her lost childhood. The concept is finished and determined. I`m only open for suggestions in details which support the basic idea.
       
      I had help by Mortimer and Ildfus Mahler (both members of the Bemalforum). Mortimer is my muse and he had the idea to add a Hasslefree child to the scene and Ildfus helps me to plan and execute my ideas for the base. So there are already other painters involved here for supporting this project and I will follow the advice by Ildfus Mahler mainly. So: Of course ideas are welcomed, but please be not upset if I let myself mainly guided by Ildfus, because I "engaged" him as my teacher for all concerning the base at this project. Thanks to Ildfus Mahler and Mortimer at this opportunity (for the case if they read it here).
       
      Technique:
      Oh well, this is really a hard task. I used this Space Marine for to practise maximum contrast which means I cover a range up from deep black to pure white.
      This is inspired by the outstanding and excellent work of the amazing painter Glaze O also known as Glaze Over.
       
      This means: Here are supposed multiple light sources (not only one from above like it is the case in zenithal highlighting) for determining the highlights/reflections. It is all painted in non metallic metal black, which was really a stupid idea Any other colour wouldn´t make this stress I have right now with all this greys, black and white aaaargh. The multiple light sources make the nmm looking intresting no matter from what angle you look at it and so this is advanced nmm painting.
       
      I mixed in some dark blue into the black for increasing the metallic look. Pictures are more blue than in real, I have to change the white balance settings for the next wip photos.
       
      In basic it is wetblending in the beginning, followed by layering (70%-80%) and partially I used two brush technique (30%-40%). Glaze Over has written on his blog that he only uses two brush technique for to create this wonderful shiny nmm effect, but I`m not very common with this technique and so I just used it partially until now.
       
      Nothing is really finished here and I`m still working on almost all blendings for to get them smoother and for to get the contrast higher. I guess I have painted over 50 hours until now (mainly tedious layering without any end) at the Space Marine and this sucks a bit haha. This is a challenge for me and the only miniature at the moment where I really try to improve my skills as a painter. All other paintjobs at the moment are just on my recent level (not very challenging), but this one here is meant as challenge for me.
       
      As always: All kind of feedback is appreciated.

      I decided today is a good day for showing you the truth
       
      Originally my plan was to post my wips up from the very beginning for one reason and that is for you to see that there is no need to fear the paint. This is the most important lesson I`ve learnt through all this years of painting: Don`t fear the paint!!!
       
      You can mess around with acrylics same way like you can do with oil paints. You can put them wet in wet in on the figure and just mess around with them how you like. You just have to take care that your layers of paint are not as thick that the paint obscure some fine details, but apart from that you can simply push and pull it around in a (semitransparent rather opaque consistency) on the miniature in a quite chaotic way and I tell you this is massive fun. This is the most joyful part in painting, because you don`t need to be carefully at all. This is also a very good way for practising and learning highlighting, because you can try out different light scenarios, before you make your final decision.
       
      This is what I call: Making first a very rough sketch.
       
      This is the stage where you can simply try things. If you don`t like it....no problem, just paint it over and try a different sketch of the highlighting. The problem with starting very clean up from the very beginning is: You are not flexible anymore. You fear to damage what you have already painted and you stick to something which is might not the best solution, but you stick to it, because you have already spent a couple of hours with painting it up to this stage and this blocks your creativity.
       
      Unleashed creativity starts always with chaos. The chaos gives you the chance to change your direction again and to try out a couple of things before you make your final decision.
       
      Most of my actual wips are far beyond the chaos stage already, but Gandalf is right now in the absolutely chaos stage and so I have got the chance to post at least one of the wips which are at the very, very beginning. I just spent a very short time with him until now and what you see here is only a very first and rough sketch of the osl. As you see, I ignore all other details and I just mess around with my paints for to find out which way the osl might look good in the end. So this is all in heavy progress/movement. Can be that the next wips look completely different, but the overall direction became gradually clear for me in the meantime.
       
      OSL:
      Well this is a complicated OSL because:
      - There is coming white light from above from his staff
      - There is coming orange light from the Balrog in front of him
      - And for making it finaly complicated there is also coming light from below (he is standing on such a stone bridge) because in the abyss there are a lot of torches at the walls below.
       
      So I have to paint 3 lightsources here. 1 in white and 2 in orange and red (fire colours).
       
      Everything here is just done very rudimentary. This is why all looks very unclean and messy, but this is actually exactly the way my paintjobs all look in the very beginning.
       
      Technique: For the moment I just mix the light colours (white, orange, red) with the grey of his robe and with dark grey at the shadows and I apply it very quickly and combine wet in wet with some very rough and quick layering with more opaque paints for making fast progress. I do absolutely not care about cleanliness. I`m not sure yet about the reflections at the sword and try different things here right now. At the moment the osl looks more like rust than like light, but it is just because it is not workout yet. Later the highlights will be more orange and brighter and then it will work. What you see here are rather the midtones of the osl.
       
      Concept: Simply the movie scene which means that the base will be a piece of this stone bridge he is standing on in the movie. Not a big deal.
       
      The challenge here is not the base, but this complicated OSL, his face will also be challenging. Well here it is, don`t get a shock

      Citadel has just released (to pre-order - they're coming out next week) a new line of Contrast paints which behave rather differently than conventional minis paints in a number of respects. 
       
      I recently got a chance to play around with them at my local Warhammer store, and wrote down some initial impressions. 
       
      Has anyone else gotten a chance to mess around with these, and if so, what was your thoughts on them? 
      (my favorite result down below)

      Well it’s been a while since I posted anything here. But I have been slowly painting in the background since moving house.  
       
      Here is a regiment of GW skeletons. These were a bit fiddly to build but will form part of my Dragons Rampant army.
