Liche Priest

The Liche Priest was a speedpainting project. I painted him in two hours and used a daVinci with size 4 :).

Some colours...

Little update; First shots of the ogryn paintjob, he is turning out pretty darklooking as most of my paintjobs. things are not going very fast, its finally some nice weather here in Sweden so have to take the chances outside. so not that much painting.


Regarding paintjob so far; Wanted something different for the skin so i went the hard way and did a pattern of veins all over the skin areas. luckily the boss other arm is robotic ;)



continued working the eyes, first idea was to make some osl there but reconsidered and made them like regular goggles instead, to make him look less robotic. here is some pictures of current status.

NMM (in Progress)


Grund
...

Was wird benötigt?
  •  Ich verwende für das Ganze min einen 3er Pinsel von Windsor oder 4er von DaVinci, geht schneller und wird sauberer. Genauso die feinen Linien, werden mit einem Pinsel der mehr Farbe speichern kann sauberer, da man längere Linien ohne ab zu setzten ziehen kann.
  • Also ich nehme nur schwarz und weiß (weiß darf nicht zu alt sein, sonst ist sie kaputt und wird kreidig) her.

Schritt für Schritt
  • Mische mir einen Grauen Grundton aus Schwarz und Weiß auf meiner Wetpalette an so das er schön cremig ist. Also so das man wenn man drin rumrürt noch nicht den Boden sieht vom Verdünnunggrad.
  • Dann zieh ich mir das ohne wirklich Wasser zu entziehen das ganze über die Waffe.
  • Im nächsten Schritt nehm ich mir weiß und mach das schön Wet-in-Wet und zieh mir das weiß so leicht schreg, dass es vom Lichteinfall etwa passen könnte.
  • Dazu das gleich auf der anderen Seite der Waffe
  • Gleiche mit Schwarz
  • Wenn dann das so halb wegs passt hier und da nochmal mit dem Basis Grauton dazwischen gehen bis es sauber wirkt
  • Am Schluss nochmal mit Weiß und Schwarz nochmal in die ecken ziehen, dass es wirklich mit Schwarz und Weiß für den maximalen Kontrast endet.
  • Danach noch Refexionskanten setzen am Rand einfach mit der Pinsellängsseite in 45° Winkel ziehen, geht ganz easy. Bischen anspruchsvoller wird dann die Linie in der Mitte wo schon ein wenig Übung dazu gehört. Aber man kann da einiges retten in dem man mit einem weichgekauten Zahnstocher die Linie korregiert und vielleicht nochmal gegenmalt.
  • Zum Abschluss mach ich dann noch eine Lasur (immer) drüber, damit wirkt das ganze einfach sauberer und natürlicher. Dazu verwende ich meistens Scorched Brown, Hawk Tourquoise, Ice Blue und Liche Purple. Dabei achte ich eigendlich darauf wie die Umgebung wirkt also was sich drin spiegeln soll oder ich nehm den Komplimentärkonstrast zu einer Farbe damit die Waffe besser wirkt.
    Dabei kann man erstmal mit stark verdünnten Lasuren anfangen bis einem das dann gefällt. Und immer von Hell nach dunkel ziehen und kurz vor den Ende anfangen bzw aufhören sonst muss man das nochmal mit Weiß bzw. Schwarz nachziehen.
  • Als Highlights kann man noch Kratzer (Schwarz + Weiße Line) oder Dellen (Farbpunkt setzten, Wasser schnell entziehen so das sich ein Ring bildet und dann noch eine Weiße Reflektionskante setzten) hinzufügen.
Hört sich vielleicht jetzt viel an aber geht wirklich fix. So hoffe das Hilft dir soweit. Geht natürlich auch mit Blendings, aber dauert ein wenig länger bis die Verläufe gleichwertig sind in meinem Fall. Ist aber einfach eine Übungssache.

Cabinet of horror - Chapter II

Let`s continue the freaky horror show.

Today I want to introduce you a piece with the title "my best work!!!!!!!!!". I am not sure if this is serious, but this man has discovered a unique way of painting minis. Just click on the picture to reveal the secret of his technique:

Best work cubed



As you all know converting miniatures makes them to single-pieces all over the world. Some people are more skilled then others, but most of the time you could at least imagine what the person was aiming for. The following picture shows you something I would identify as a chaos spawn, but I am totally unsure if even this is the right name for it. Maybe some of you are able to tell me, what this is:



Unidentified cubed

basework

Some smaller updates of the ogryn base. went for a trenchy no-mans-land kind of base for this guy, im probably going to add lost of mudd and dirt later. at least it didnt get too small :)



The mini itself is actually well casted, especially in comparison to the latest so-called "finecast" miniatures. just a big miscast below the over arm, but no problem filling that with some milliput. otherwise, just some broken and bent spikes, as always when its Forgeworld. Stuff that happend when you package in a stupid plasic bag!



Painting time...

Cabinet of horror - Chapter I

Whenever I am sad...
or a mini is not as it should...
or I just want to laugh again...

...I am looking at pictures like these:

The cabinet of horror will be a frequently updated horrorshow to safe your day! Make sure to never miss an update and follow us.

Please remember: There`s always someone painting even more worse then you do.

As this is the first chapter in the cabinet of horror we have an additional epic fail for you, it`s a well known character from Lord of the Rings...

Can you feel the magic?

Wet Blending 1.1 or Be brave!

Today I want to keep it short.

After a meeting with a friend to paint some hours together I know some things I have to improve.

First of all: I am painting with too thinned color. So my layers are tending to get chalky. The brighter the color the more chalky it was. So, 2nd thing I ve learned: Be brave and paint with thicker colors man!

After trying to add several layers of dark flesh to maulkgs hands I ve given the wetblending a try. Since I am not very familar with this technique I have to learn it. The result is satisfying, at least in my eyes ;)

I am trying to let maulg interact more with the base. He`s more implemented now. Still have to work a lot on him. But he`s slowly getting more and more color.

Do I ve told you that I love this mini?! Yes, I do!

Here`s the current status. Please excuse the bad pictures. Next time there will be better ones!

Hirst Art!

Not much hobby activites lately, got some nice sunny days and when living in Sweden you have to take every chance you can to get some sun...

But I got my hands on stome hirst art mould at least, get them at http://www.hirstarts.com/ . pretty expensive stuff but after trying them out i must say they are worth every penny! here they are together with the king himself






Just pour some plaster into them...




...and "wola"! lots of really sweet basing material, perfect for 28-32 mm miniatures. these moulds can be used 100's of times obviously so you can build a castle if you want...




two thumbs up says the little man!



Finally, a new project!

So, those damned rats are finished, at least so finished as i manage to get them right now. only need to find a nice plaque/sign and its all done.

Briskly to the next project then. have some minis i really want to paint right now, like the Enigma demon of atrocity, Metal mini's King of Deads and at least two Rackham dirz clones but the choice fell on the Renegade Orgyn with DKOK victim, soooo cool piece!


started with the base this time, made the base out of super sculpty fimo clay, its just the basic shape lots of stuff will be added later.




Surfing ogryn ;)


Desaturated red

After some Feedback I ve desaturated the red of the fallen king. As you can see he`s lost his orange touch. He also has got some more shades with a dark green. Looks much betetr now I think.

Pictures are not the best as the red is very hard to catch with my camera. Have to find the best settings for it first.

Santa is coming OR another king has fallen

Hey folks! Yes, 2 updates in a row. I am in writing-mood at the moment.

Some things happened during my last and this post. On last Saturday i was invited to take part on a painting-day by some new friends i knew from Das Bemalforum. Beside seeing beautiful painted miniatures i ve got a lot of feedback on my previous work and my current WIP.

They ve showed me how to wetblend. A technique i ve never used before. Sure, i ve read some tutorials about it before, but whenever i ve tested this the result was horrible. After they told me what i have to do exactly this technique doesn t seems to be so bad.

After some tests on the beast you ve seen in my previous posts i ve started to work on a New one with the New learned technique. Here s the result:



As you can see i ve tried to blend from a strong pink over grey / rosa and purple into darkgrey for the deepest areas. Not easy... If i d more experienced in werblending it could have been a successful try. But... As you See my blending is far away from beeing soft.

Next step? Painting Beast number 3.

I ve schossen a more classic colortheme for him. In my opinion it s much easier to wetblend dark colors into each other. Look at this:



He s far away from beeing finshed, but i get a feeling for how to mix colors on a mini. And i think thats all that counts, right? Learning New techniques in this hobby is very excited!

Before going crazy i started with my beloved King Maulg. I was talking of Santa in the topic. When you See the pictures below you know why.

It s hard for me to catch the color as it is. Please be kind and regard that the colors you ll See are not doing justice at all. Maybe a sentence minipainter saying quite often, but you can believe me: it s the first time i am saying that!!
