    muchas gracias...
    painting a nice white is always a satisfying accomplishment...

    plenty of whites coming up this month, with a Blood Angels and a Flesh Tearers character coming up...
    white wings everywhere!!!





    i am also working on converting up a female Heretek for a Black Crusade RPG warband for one of my clients...
    i am stoked to get to use on of my favorite Infinity female sculpts for this wicked lady...



    there will be a step-by-step for both Seth's burgandy armor, and the rest of the gold on Dante, too...
    the Heretek, and the rest of the warband, will be an interesting chance to document, and share, how a commission progresses for a client, from first ideas, to sculpting and converting, on to developing paint schemes, and the finished product...

    should be an interesting journey over the next few months...

    thanks for looking...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    after two weeks off from posting, to recharge my mental battery, i am back at it...
    lots has been going on behind the scenes, setting up the next few jobs, and doing the step-by-step photos for Dante and Seth...
    the step-by-step pics really slow down my painting process, since i don't usually paint in any organized manner, but flit from part to part as the fancy strikes...
    hopefully you guys will find them helpful, which will make it all worthwhile...

    since i am painting Gabriel Seth for the NOVA Open charity auction, i thought it would be cool to base him on one of the 2013 Limited Edition 40mm Objective Markers that Secret Weapon Miniatures did for the organization...
    a quick email later, and Mr. Justin had a set in the mail for me, free of charge...



    i chose the one in the top left, with the cool inscription in the stone, as it has the most angular piece, which will work great with Seth's pose...

    Secret Weapon also has a set of bases, in a variety of sizes, that give 50% of the proceeds to NOVA's charities...
    if you play Ultramarines, or Word Bearers and just want to deface them, the Omega base sets are perfect...
    have a look:

    hey CMON...

    here are the first few stages of the Gabriel Seth oxblood color step-by-step...
    sorry for the horrible pics...
    i really need a new lens for my camera...

    i started with a basecoat of P3 Sanguine Base (one of my favorite paints)...




    next, i gave all of the details their basecoats, as i figured out where i would be deviating from the studio scheme...




    then i gave the entire model a wash of P3 Sanguine Base, Coal Black, and Flesh Wash, in a 1-1-2 ratio...
    i didn't thin this mix with water, since the Flesh Wash acted as the thinner for a wash, and i wanted to really stain the model dark at this stage...




    thanks for looking...
    more to come tomorrow...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    here are the next set of pics for Gabriel Seth's step-by-step...

    after the heavy dark wash from stage three, i came back with pure P3 Sanguine Base, leaving the dark shadows from the wash under the curve of the torso, and inside the legs...




    next came a mix of Sanguine Base and P3 Khador Red Base, at 3-1, in order to brighten up the color, but still keep a maroon tone, and achieve a nice amount of contrast...




    i started my highlights with a mix of Sanguine Base, Khador Red Base, and P3 Underbelly Blue at 3-1-4...
    this is just my previous color, with 4 drops of U.B. added...




    thanks for looking...
    i'll have the final two stages for you tomorrow...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    whoops...
    i missed posting yesterday, as i got sucked into painting, and forgot all about the real world...

    here are the last two steps of Seth's armor...

    the final highlight is a mix of Underbelly Blue and Khador Red Base, in a 10-1 ratio...
    this is a bit bright, but will get toned down in the next step...




    the last step is a heavy glaze of pure P3 Flesh Wash...
    normally i would water this down, or mix in some Sanguine Base, but i wanted to take advantage of the glossy finish of this wash to give a wet oxblodd color...




    that's it for the armor...
    now on to the fine details, and the finish...

    thanks for looking...
    i hope i've given you all a couple of new ideas...

    cheers

    here is the nearly finished version...
    just a few touch-ups on the cloak and backpack are needed, and then i will send him off to the NOVA Open foundation...






    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him...

    hey CMON...

    now that i have finished the Ultramarines (for now), and Seth, i am back to work on Dante...
    i have not seen anyone bother to paint any texture on the feathers of the Sanguinary Guard wings before, so i decided to give it a whirl...

    so far, i am pretty happy with the result...
    now i just need to finish the gold, so i can give the feathers the final white highlight...




    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like them...

    That texture is a nice technique for the Marine.

    Nice touch on texturing the feathers. Certainly adds depth to the wings.

    I agree with the above statements. I Think it makes them more realistic as well.

    hey CMON...

    after a two month hiatus from posting, it's time to get back on the horse...

    thanks to my laptop, and my camera lens, both deciding to act up this summer, just doing updates for my clients made me want to throw them out the window (the laptop and lens, not the customers)...

    now that i have things in some semblance of working order, let's get caught up...

    i've had some cool projects come across my table this summer...
    first up, i was hired to paint a Grey Knights Dreadknight...
    this is a very complicated model to paint with a brush...
    to make things easier for myself, i painted it in as many parts as possible...
    the torso and the legs were my three subassemblies, while all the overlapping parts were kept separate...




    this guy is for the same client with the Ultramarines army, so i used a couple of the same basing elements to tie the two armies together...



    i finished the helmet first, just to give the customer a quick teaser...



    thanks for looking...
    i hope everyone had a great summer...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    i seem to have lost a bunch of WIP pics of the Dreadknight while i was getting my laptop to cooperate again, but here is a few more...

    i really like the shield on this guy's shoulder, with the Grey Knights Marine fighting a Demon of Chaos...
    the torso was the section that had the most bright metal...
    as usual, all paints are P3...
    the bright metals are a basecoat of Pig Iron, washed heavily with Armor Wash, then a layer of Cold Steel, and a wash of Blue Ink...



    i wanted to differentiate the GK bases a bit from the Ultramarines, so even though i am using the same basing elements, i went with rusty metals and darker soil...



    the legs have a darker metal on the struts...
    this is done with a Pig Iron basecoat, and then a wash that is a 1-1 mix of Armor Wash and Thamar Black...



    last, but not least, what can only be described as big arse sword!!!



    it was a real challenge to paint a glowing effect on this blade without an airbrush...
    up next i'll have the finished pics, where you can see if i pulled it off, or not...

    thanks for looking...

    cheers

    heehee, here you go T...


    here are the last two pics i was able to salvage, the finished Dreadknight...
    i have no idea why the front view is so skewed, but it is better than nothing...

    i have never painted so much metal on a single mini...
    sadly, this was a two week, budget rush-job...
    i feel like i could have done so much more with the contrast and details...
    i did enjoy the challenge of painting the fades on the big sword, even though it would have been much easier with an airbrush, and picking out the awesome relief on the tilt shield...




    i would love to revisit this model, and actually do some conversion work to salvage the poor design of the pilot...
    now that i have worked with the kit, i have a few ideas of what i could do with it...
    with just a little bit of extra work, this could be an incredible model...

    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him...

    hey CMON...

    it's Throwback Thursday again...
    it was a huge honor to be asked to paint an alternate scheme for the Escalation rulebook by my painting hero, Mike McVey...
    it was a nice change to invert the Menoth color scheme, and paint more maroon than white on this group...



    in this pic you can see the alt. scheme in comparison to the standard studio scheme that i was asked to use for the Zealots...



    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like them...
