Plague doctor bust

Since apparently I am incapable of working on a single project, here is another 3D print that is presently “under the brush”.  Seemed sadly appropriate for these days.  
 

Here he is before the cure. A76FD6F5-F8D7-4BEE-81F7-9E33D12BA188.thumb.jpeg.d6e1e084565f2e31a47a7fe71e03e8c8.jpeg
 

a little Vallejo black primer.

Picked out the beak with Vallejo Dark Fleshtone by brush.

Went back to the airbrush and hit all the black parts with Reaper Coal Black (seriously, is there another black?!). 
The beak then got some Reaper Rich Leather mixed with increasing amounts of Model Air Sand, focusing the lighter sand colour on top. The straps for the mask were painted with Rich Leather as well.

The beak then got a drybrush of straight Vallejo model Air Sand, followed by a very light and selective dry brush with Warcolours White.  E81B85D7-88AB-4F2B-83EC-9D1E6D833A3B.thumb.jpeg.697cff547e1e51c6fc935323cf01a31a.jpeg
 

The black then got a heavy dry brush of Reaper Jungle Mist.  127C3DCE-E5D6-43A9-85AC-DD186EFA8271.thumb.jpeg.9a2f9722fb1c64b6e3cc2219936d4f8d.jpeg
 

next up will be some washes with some details being picked out and some metallic around the goggle lenses. 
 

Thanks for looking.

Kind of got carried away with him tonight and am close to calling him done. 

 

He got a variety of washes Dark Grey, Dark Brown and Rust from Vallejo Model Wash.  Picked out the rivets and frames of his goggles in Vallejo Metal Color Cooper and edged them with some Model Air Gun metal.  Leather "thread" got some Reaper Leather followed by a bit more dark grey wash. 

I then peeled off the liquid mask off his goggles and gave them a quick hit of Tamiya clear Green.

Now to decide if I want to install a light behind his goggles...

Bit of final cleanup and he’ll be off to the Show Off section.  

thanks for looking.

      As you can see from the title, I'm a noob playing around with layering. Or glazing? I'm not sure about the difference, in the tutorial videos I watched, both techniques come down to painting diluted paints over a base coat.
       

       
      I've painted the armor with a black-and-silver mix, then painted over with diluted silver where I imagine the light hits. I'm happy with the effect. I feel like I've messed up the face. I layered Vallejo Paint Bronze Fleshtone (over that color + white) to simulate shade from the helmet, and tried to pain the eyes gold because she's depicted with glowing eyes in the official artwork. I think I should just have gone for skin-wash... I hope I can salvage it. I also see now that I haven't been thorough with removing the mold lines and messed up the gold detail somewhat.
       
      I'm a bit unsure about what to do with the hair and, well, whatever you call this piece of clothing.
       

       
      I painted shades on the lower part of the hair, in the areas where multiple layers of cloth overlap and on the right where the wing is above it. I just glazed over with a red + black mix. I'm kind of going back and forth thinking that it looks too dark and smudgy, and (especially on the front) not dark enough. I'm also unsure if I should add highlights or shades on the wavy part. It's relatively flat, and most tutorials I've seen deal with robes that have very deep folds.
       
      I definitely want to add highlights to the hair, but I don't know what color. Mixing red and white would give pink, and that doesn't seem right. I tried glazing with orange, but wasn't happy with the result, so I glazed over with red again. It's still slightly visible.
       
      Some other minor detail, I've tried to paint the shadow of the body on the base of the wings. Not sure I like it, but you only see it when you go looking for it anyway...

       
      One more picture that I took, can't really think of any commentary.

       
      Any advice on layering or any other things is very welcome!

      Hi, I want to start this to get me motivated to get some accountability and hopefully guilt myself into working. So here is the very first of hopefully many steps.
       
      The first step is to prime the miniature, I've done that, the 2nd step? To photograph the miniature to capture the volumes of real light that shows where I want my light source. For this I want two light sources. So really that means I just used my computer screen and my ceiling light, adjust the miniature to taste and get the angle I want to set the light.
       
      The screen light is whiter and will be the light from outside the window, the yellower ceiling light will be my tavern fire light and will be the primary light source.
       
      The skin will be fairly shiny so this is pretty much a mandatory process to get those realistic sheens....because I'm literally stealing form reality it helps a lot. If I were a better painter I could fake the light sources with enough knowledge. Thankfully  I have some serious shadows on the model, and my mid tones will have a lot of room for blending.
       
      The problem now? Picking my colors.
       
      What do I know? I know the floor is wood colored and the axe/haft materials
       
      I know that I'm going to want off white and pinks for eye whites and gums teeth etc.
       
      The gold of the primer is actually a really beautiful color for a fantasy creature, so I might see if I can't keep that.
       
      So Gold, pink, whites/off whites, and browns, I don't know if I want a two toned or patterned beholder. I think this is gonna be a challenge whatever I do. I think I want to go for a fleshy color

      Wanted to try my hand at something a little different and bigger so I found something fun that I knew my daughter would appreciate.  I got a ton of hugs for it today, so I must have done alright.  
       
      Prime and initial zenithal was done by airbrush and in keeping with my current process a lot of acrylic mini paints (Vallejo, Reaper, WarColour and GW) glazed or dry brushed on followed by oil washes, then more acrylic dry brushes and then more oil washes.  I LOVE Nightmare Black!!  
       
      I wish I had kept it appart to paint it as the crossed legs made things complicated on more than a couple occasions.  Also should have painted the neck area the same colour as her leotard…. Not sure but I think it would have been better.   Base, cape, body and head were painted separately but I should have kept the hands, legs and boots to paint on their own.   
       

       
      close up of the books.  Doing the gold lettering AFTER I’d painted the rest of the base was not my best idea.. tried to give them a worn look.  

       
      lastly a quick shot of the base WIP with a Chaos Marine volunteer for scale.  
       

       
      thanks for looking.

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
       
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
       
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

       
      And just the pinup after some prep work 

       
      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 
       

       
      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
       
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

       
      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
       
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
       
      Happy painting everyone.

      This is Miguel Zavala's redesigned Umber Hulk, printed on my Mars Pro and painted with Vallejo acrylics.
       
      It's a monster I haven't used much, if at all, in my own campaign, but my favourite character of old, Sir Fnord the Pretty Neat died of them twice, both times by having his head ripped clean off.
