WIP: Historical Mini Part 2

Not sure why I thought a small mini with a limited palette would be a nice relaxing project -_- It'sa good exercise, but not all that relaxing. Anyway onward...

WIP: My First Historical Mini

So this is the result after 1 hour of complete panic during a speed painting challenge that our local painting club held. It was so much fun and hilarity ensued. Suffice to say: retarder and speed paint - not really good friends o_O Anyway as a break after Helion Rain I am going to strip him and have another go, but without the time limits! This will be a shorter post, BTW.

WIP: Helion Rain Base & Blood

This will be quick. Pigment wash above. Then I clean it off with warm water a little disposable foam makeup applicators :) Looks like hell now but after the jump the effect is knocked back and then even more when it's sealed...

WIP: Experiments With Old Minis

These minis have some pretty bad casting issues so I thought they would be good for an experiment :)  I wondered if hatching would work on minis. Let's follow the rabbit down the rabbit hole...

WIP: Just What's In The Box

Nekima was a bitch. Time to have some fun! I picked up these a while ago. Decided to have some fun with the paint set....

On Display: Nekima

 Frankly she is not my best work, but holy hell she's petite! What am I gonna do with all those Ax Faction, Anima Tactics, Malifaux and TGG girlies?! Squint and go blind, I guess ^_^  Bah! More pics...

WIP: Nekima Base

 Okay this will go fast too. Easy way to do skulls fast? Zenithal prime and then glaze with colors above ;)

WIP: Nekima Shades and Glazes

Okay she's small so this is gonna go like shit through a goose o_O Keep up! Skin highlights above...

On Display: TMNT

As you can see the 3D printing is still a wee bit rough o_O These guys were smaller, somewhere between 1/72 and 28mm. Anyway...

WIP: TMNT Base Detailed

 Picking up with the base it was time to detail things a bit. Above I made the brick and copper drain pipe pop with some glazes. Then we finished it up. Still with bigger brushes and it will also go fast :P

WIP: TMNT 1/72 Scale

Got distracted by a just for fun contest on CMON. Heroes and Villans. These guys are tiny, like 1/72...

WIP: Nekima - Metals

So this is the shortest post ever. I had 15 min to start the metals on Nekima o_O  That's it. Criminal.

Video: Tour of the Painting Studio

Just a little look behind the curtain.

Let me know what you think in the comments below, and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :)

WIP: Malifaux - Nekima

If you'll recall we left off with the little lady in the state above. Crap she is so tiny! Crap crap crap crap...

On Display: Onitama

I needed a break after the Ironstrider and I almost jumped right into another project, but I have learned to slow down a bit with my dad's recent stroke. So I painted up the minis from this fun little board game just for me (and maybe The Agent Of Chaos too)! Let's take a closer look...

On Display: NOVA Open Ironstrider

He's done. Lascannons and Autocannons are magnetized. So are all the head options. He's painted to display quality, but has 3 coats of Dullcote so you can totally game with him too :)  More pretty pictures then?

WIP: NOVA Open Ironstrider - Powders & Final Details.

Oh I have LOTS of powders.  I highly recommend them if you never want to buy any again :) Onto the last steps then...

Personal Not A Pity Party Post

Depression By Destiny Blue on Deviant Art
Above is a depiction of depression by one of my favorite artists on Deviant Art. She is so talented and so open about her struggles.

Whats wrong? Well, there maybe a drop off in my posting for a while, maybe not. I can't promise anything. You follow my blog and deserve a little explanation for your time and support :)

WIP: NOVA Open Ironstrider Base & Guns

I used similar colors to the rider, but skewed a bit darker and less saturated to make sure the focus keeps moving up from the base to the rider. Let's see how it goes...

Friday, May 27, 2016

WIP: NOVA Open Ironstrider - Rider

Here we go. Switching to bristles! Basecoats and first highlight above. More after the break...

WIP: Malifaux Neverborn Demon

Last one for the NOVA Open that I am prepping. Don't let the pic fool you, she is tiny. Not sure I'll be able to paint her to a level I am comfortable with auctioning, but damned if I won't try!

Friday, April 22, 2016

WIP: WoK Werewolves

Another short post. Just to show you positioning. I'll attach her after painting so I can avoid painting around the fence...

WIP: Bases

I bet you can guess from that pic what kind of base the Ironstrider will have...

WIP: Ironstrider Build

That's a bout as built as it will get before priming. I also magnetized a few things to give whoever wins it options...

NOVA Open minis

I recently bought a few minis to paint up for the NOCF to auction off this year. I usually help out with the 40k charity raffle armies, but I am a bit short on time these days. So I'll be painting up the Ironstrider above as well as a few minis after the jump....

WIP: Steampunk Leia - Plinth

This is going to be a short one. I used the hairspray and salt technique on the cog and the colors you see above to lay in my under shades. Stipple or sponge - either works fine.

Friday, March 11, 2016

WIP: Steampunk Leia - Metal & Brass

She is so close to being done :) The metals and brass were given initial sketching with the colors below...

WIP: Steampunk Leia - Lenses and Marble, Plus Angels & Demons WIP

Getting closer to done with Leia. Just grabbed a few random colors and painted up a quick marble effect on her pistol grip. Then I got to work on the various lenses and gems on her person...

WIP: Steampunk Leia - Leather & Hair

I started by deciding what washes and inks I want to use. Then I get to work detailing the leather...

Challenge: Painting With Your Wrong Hand

Really feeling the stress on steampunk Leia. Needed to have some fun so I painted a mini with my wrong hand. Eyes above more after the jump...

WIP: Steampunk Leia Bust, Take One

This bust is for a mini exchange with a fellow CMON artist. Prep was pretty fast. Let me show youwhere it all went wrong o_O
