Talk to the hand: Bones 5 hand effects


Recommended Posts

Got two more nearly done.

 

I tried do keep the translucent look to the hands.  I love the technique that was shared with me a while back about "priming" these with matte medium to help paint stick to them and not lose that clear look.

Wins:

* Both hands came out pretty good with easy enough highlighting with dry brushing.

* The purple was an interesting attempt.  I had actually tried using a purple wash below in the smoke area, but it didn't go well.  Swapped it back to blue.

*  The purpled did, however keep more of that 'clear' look more than the blue did.  

* The smoke effects came out great.  I used a blue ink to tint and fill in the deeper areas.  Then drybrushed a prussian blue.  Then lightened it up to a sky blue.  Then finally to white.  Cool effect!

 

Misses:

* I wish there was a better way to do the cut-off portion of the wrist on both of these.  They just don't have a lot of interest there with them going from smoke to hand.  I'd love some ideas.

*  The knuckles on the blue hand was a little too strong.  I think I should have stayed to a lighter blue more than going to a white.  

*  Maybe should have avoided the edge highlight around the wrist area.

 

 

Now, what the heck do I do with these?  I'm going to fill in the stone work below them to have a blue hue to them like they are getting radiant light from the hands, but not sure what else needs to be done?  Interesting and fun!

      Done. 
       
      OSL effect.  Trying to make it look like he's lit from the campfire.

      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.
