A painting & hobby Blog for the less than perfect.
Absolutely beautiful work, man! I love it!
Jeez you an' yer friggin' mad skillz.Really cool.:)
Thank you, these were fun but now i need a break so just some easy, quick projects next while i wait for my NOFC minis to get here :)
Thanks! I stole it from Weston Rd and shrunk it down. Stupid GO station -_-
HEH. I kind of filed away that you were in the GTA somewhere but didn't realize how close...
Yep, good 'ol Etobicoke. Land of the strip mall. Not as sexy as it sounds o_O Every now and then I visit titan games out behind the Starky dumpsters in Mississauga there. very rare though. Usually a paint driven emergency. There is a figure painting group that meets the first Sunday or every month at hornet hobbies out in Scarborough, too but they are mainly historical painters - not that there's anything wrong with that, painting is painting right?
True! My main haunt is out in Markham, Hwy 7 & Warden (Heroes World, if you're familiar).Some of my pals swear by Legend's Warehouse in Vaughan (20% off GW!) but it's a bit of a hike for me from Thornhill.Hit me up if you want to fight my Guard sometime, god knows I've driven further than etobicoke for a game =.=
Thanks, I actually sold all my terrain and armies last year. I am fully committed to painting now :) I was before i just couldn't admit it , I think.
Fair enough, you're doing a great job!
Thats some fantastic work buddy, I particularly like the depth to the sigh (chipping and weathering). Paint on Buddy
Thanks bud ;)
Having just taken not one, but two classes on composition...this is a lovely piece for many many reasons. The paintjob is just the begining. There is excellent balance to the piece with lots of lines to carry the eye.If I had any critque, it would be that the signs warm tones tend to capture the viewers attention, and you have to fight back a bit to look at the lovely crafted dwarf. Do not get me wrong, I love love love love love the sign. I'm just speaking from a competition/composition standpoint.
Thank you! You're not wrong. The sign does overpower the rest a bit, but I couldn't resist making it very construction-y. Of course being from the lad of contrsuction I block out brightly colored construction sign by default :P
Awesome! The sign blows my mind :)
Thanks so much! To be fair though, I have an abundance of reference material on pretty much every other street in Toronto :P
The mini looks good ... that I have mentioned in previous posts. But it's the first time I've seen the sign completed and it looks awesome! Very very realistic.
Great mini, great setting! Love the green lenses - awesome job, mate!
Thank you :)
By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
