Video: Table Top Tips Part 1 - Color Palette & Sketch

Is he a dark elf or a vampire? Not sure. I painted him up in under 2hrs though. Actually, less than that. Just shooting the video took 82min. That includes painting, drying time, washing brushes, changing water, mixing paints and blabbing at the camera o_O Anyways here is a cut down, short tutorial of where to start...

Short and sweet. I did these for a friend who was having trouble with his minis and just wanted to get a good result for the table in a reasonable amount of time. The techniques are a combination of what I learned from James Wappel's videos and what I learned in Fernando Ruiz's workshop this summer.

Next Post: Part 2 - Mid tones and highlights!  Thanks for watching, let me know what you think and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain.

    1. Yeah, it's a little bit hoard to tell with the effeminate waifs and their pointy ears :P

  2. Wow just 2 hours! Your base alone would have taken me forever. Nice one. Haven't seen the video yet but I plan to.
