Bones 5 - fan favorites: not sure which one?


Recommended Posts

Tried to keep this in very, very simple colors.  I think he came out okay.  Sometimes simple is good, right?

 

Battle Report!

Wins:

* Cape and layers came out well.

*  Staff shading was good.

* metal highlights worked out well.  Used an ink wask to fill in the deeper areas and shade and edge highlighted.

*  brightened the scale mail in the front which I think added a cool effect.

 

Misses:

* The staff and bones didn't differentiate enough.  I tried doing a dry brush that failed pretty bad.  Then went back and just did similar tones.

*  I wanted to have more color in the body, but didn't see how to do it without pulling away from the grimdark look.  Open to suggestions you may have.

*  Also could have differed the band colors on the staff a bit more.

 

Open to feedback on this one.  

I also need some good basing ideas.

      Here we go! It's time to finally give me time to this OSL thing.  I saw this model and thought it'd be perfect to do as if this bugbear snuck up on a group of adventurers over their campfire.  
       
      I'll try to base this guy with a camp fire below him.  
       
      How's he look? 
       

       
      Here's him from the under-side:

      Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start.
       

       
      Interesting how this worked out. 
      I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens.  
      Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough.  What this?  A huge stock pile of BCA pink?  Better put it to use.  I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights.  Pink and green were a fun combo. 
       
      I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at it.  I may need to use a wash over it, which i try to avoid, to add some dirt/grime look to it.  It's too clean and vibrant. But hey, i did layer nicely. Win. 
       
      I wasn't sure about the facial features.  I ended up just touching it up with a little green yellow for discoloration around the mouth, but seems like he still needs something. 
       
      Next thing i need to do is make a fun base for him.  Something Halloween feeling for sure.  Thanks @Reaper_Jonfor the ghoulie bags and free minis.  Putting them to good use.

      We're only about 3 months away from delivery of the Bones 5 (so stoked I can hardly contain myself) and there's A LOT coming.  
       
      I stated in another post that I'd like to get through as many as i can.  I also know burnout is a real thing to be prepared for.  I don't know if this is a thing somewhere in the realms of Reaper Forum already, but would anyone be interested in getting on a weekly painting group to try and knock out the same minis?  I figure if anything it will at least be a means to keep on top of the painting and also encourage, inspire, and grow from the group effort.  There's a lot of logistics to be worked out, but if anyone would want to start something up with me, I'd love the company on the trail. 
       
      Here's my general stats to see if you're in alignment: 
      Usually take about 1 to 1.5 hours on my minis.  
      Intermediate painter. 
      Nothing pro-level, just painting for fun. 
      Love to try new techniques.
      I find working with others is more motivating for me than on my own.  
       
      Who's interested?

      This little guy is just a background piece so i wanted him to be simple.  I picked his color scheme to use red and green.  Someone mentioned to try shading green with red so i thought, why not?   His tunic is green shaded with red. 
       

       
      Testing a new style of painting with the deep shading around the eyes (because i wanted to be lazy... don't judge me).
       
      Would love your feedback.

      Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing.  In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.  
       
      Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun.  I figured this gross figure needed a green belly.  From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple.  Challenge accepted. 
       
      I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple.  Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots.  Still wanted more.   Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin.  Worked well. 
       
      For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works.  I'm digging this color theory thing. 
       

       

       
      Here's the progress photos.
