A Micron .005 pen is the best way to do it! So much better than even the pointiest brush.


I mean that’s just cheating.  If you’re not having to repaint them half a dozen times just to get them to point the same point & be roughly the same shape, not to mention repainting the face around the eye when you really screw up can you even call yourself a painter?

 

 

 

:P

*point in the same direction even.  Man, I can’t event be accurate sarcastically today.

Started working out the colours for Dragonhead Models’ The Mourning earlier.  Of course I knocked the thing off the desk and broke off his thumb and sash at the back :doh: - at least I could find the sash to glue back together.

Looking good so far! Lovely piece indeed. I always get upset with busts though and just wish the bugger's would sculpt the rest of the thing. I mean, with this one all he needs is knees and shins and job done ;)

The first plague dickhead I did and stripped back. I know more now and can keep within the lines better. I ain't doing him again, that Indomitus and Adepta Sororitas ain't gonna paint themselves. Nor are the other 3 plague dickheads and the captain of this 4 man set.

 

This time I went with a darker green underneath and dry brushed the stupid ludicrous green over the top. I'm happy with it. I think the purple is a different one but I've got 4 purples all roughly the same so fuck knows. Second pic is from the first go on him.

Done...well, bar a dull-cote and some spot varnish here and there. For some reason, this one's been a right arsehole to take pictures of. I've tried many different backgrounds and it all kind of blurs things. I can only assume the camera is having problems with the colours on the thing. I dunno. 

 

Anyway, here's the Inquisitor...

Fuck me, that’s fantastic.  

 

These were precisely the words I was going to type in right this minute.

 

Fantastic work on the knight Nicky!

 

Edit: I'm not sure I want to know just what the Knight was carving through to leave so much gore on his blades though ;)

Bit more work on The Mourning, I’m fiddling with details rather than anything important like skin.  When I first saw it I thought the thing in his hands would be perfect for OSL, but everyone’s doing that so I’ve attempted to free hand an impression of a tiny portrait/religious icon (it was a portrait until I added the yellow lines radiating from her).  Actually attempted to highlight her hair cause I hate myself :lol:

ha thanks guys. I've been working on this on stream since 13th November last year, every saturday night for 3 hours. add a bunch of extra 3-4 hour streams along the way so somewhere in the region of 170 hours of streams cut down the waffle and you're looking at around 150ish hours i'd say. Finished it a year and a day after starting it. i need to pick up the pace, or charge more.
