I’ve found some time to advance this handsome little fellow.
On the one hand, I subtly filed down his champion cheekbones to soften and hobbit him up more, but I’ve given him a scratch on his cheek and a skinned elbow (which you can’t quite see) to indicate that he’s not just a little dandy.
I like the color scheme of green & yellow, which reminds me of my high school uniforms while remaining within the norms of fantasy adventuring fashion.
The great David Powell , aka Bailey03, joins us for this guest tutorial, explaining how to better paint highlights and surface reflections. Though David is a sublime figure painter, he’s also a remarkable teacher who always translates his ideas into practical advice. Read on for David’s tips that will immediately improve your mini painting. Oh, and to see some of his incredible work, too!
I’m underway on my next project, a 54mm hobbit from Enigma miniatures.
I tend to regard each character as a little personality with a unique story. I love this mini because he’s tranquil, not captured in the moment of epic combat. There’s so much possibility in his pose & attitude. There are far too few quiet minis like this, but this is a good one. I’m aiming to bring Yarry (as he’s officially known) to NOVA in August.
As I progress through the painting, please feel free to share your feedback and impressions. I always love to hear from you!
Fresh back from a fun, if wet, camping trip (my daughter’s first), I sat down this morning to begin my next project. This is the one I’d like to bring to NOVA, so I’m trying to deliver my very best effort.
I started with the eyes and got them looking pretty good.
John Margiotta joins us again to teach how he approaches one of his specialities: rust, grime, and corrosion. He’ll be painting up a classic 40k Plague Marine mini to show us how it’s done. Grandfather Nurgle will be proud!
Hello all, BaM here. On today’s tasty menu at the Chapel I’d like to introduce a small tutorial on how I went about painting the rust on my beautiful Deathguard that you may have seen in my gallery.
