    Default GumbaFish's WIP [CC welcome and encouraged!]

    Hey all, first post here in the forums. I was a long time member of The Warhammer Forum and ever since The Glass Cabinet became a bit of a ghost town I've found myself without a forum to call home. As a result, I've noticed that I am less motivated to paint and don't push myself to try new things like I used to. I've decided this year that I would really like to paint more regularly and improve my skills so I thought I would start posting my work here to get some motivation and hopefully improve as a painter.

    With that said I always welcome helpful comments, critiques, suggestions etc... so please feel free to post constructive criticism. I'm currently juggling some Warmachine Khador, Guildball Blacksmiths, various Shadespire warbands and a few miscellaneous projects so I will bounce around between these. I'm hoping to add in some tutorials along the way if I am working on anything I think could be useful for people.

    I just finished up Steelheart's champions yesterday so here they are.

    Obryn the Bold

    Angharad Brigthshield

    Severin Steelheart

    Thank you for asking but I don't do commissions.

    Outstanding work on all of these guys... I especially like that blending on the shield, that looks absolutely amazing!!! Looking forward to seeing more of your work!!!

    These are beautiful. Great choice of colours, and the variety of textures is so nice to look at. A breath of fresh air in comparison to the typically flat gold approach

    I’d echo everyone else, outstanding mini.

    In an attempt to try and provide some constructive critique, maybe have a look at glazing some different tones on to Severin’s face. If you shut your eyes and wish really hard, BaM might turn up with a handy picture guide.

    Thanks all! So Foxtail and Canny I'm trying to understand what you are suggesting and I want to see if I have it right. I have added one type of contrast in the face from light (the forehead) to dark (the chin) but you are suggesting that I add another level of contrast by varying from warm (the forehead) to cool tones (the chin)?

    Hmm interesting, thanks for the tip I have never seen this before. Since skintones are something I have always struggled with, I'll definitely give this a shot.

    Welcome to the forums. These are some beautiful minis.

    For various reasons I lost track of updating my progress in this thread. After several months without painting I am once again trying to commit to painting more regularly and becoming better at painting armies. This means trying some new techniques, painting faster, and not sweating the details so I can keep up a decent standard but still have the possibility to paint a full army. I remembered how engaged and helpful this community was and really appreciated how people were willing to provide constructive feedback to help each other improve. Here is my latest piece, a Vulcan for my Crucible Guard army for Warmachine.

    And here are a few random pieces I completed over the past year

    This guy isn't miniature, but was a really fun project for my office

    Pretty cool minis. I especally love the leather texture on the dwarf. Well done!

    This is some gorgeous work! The gradients you achieve are amazingly smooth. Do you blend with a brush or do you use an airbrush?

    My favorite is the vulcan, it has just the right blend of verdigris and rusty chipping going on.
    And I agree with Dexter0015, the leather cloak on the dwarf is superb.

    If I had to pick one thing to be critical about, it would be the fur on the first orc. It somehow looks too evenly shaded to me.
    I would imagine fur (especially that an orc wears) to be matty, coarse and very dirty, so maybe more unevenly shaded?
    Anyways, still a much better effect than I can achieve

    Ahh yes I see what you mean gorb, perhaps using some different colored glazes or just varying the color a bit on some of the tufts would be a more convincing effect. That is a good idea I'll have to file away for the future.

    Nice solid work I can see here, congrats!

    What I would have done in other way:
    - I would paint the inner edge of Angharad Brigthshield's shield to gold
    - I would have added some more highlight on the edges of Severin Steelheart's cloak, and the cloak of the ork guy, giving it a more 3D look.
    - That Khador robot is only washed on the steel parts, some grime/wash/spills/oil wash would give it more uniform look.

    Do you plane to share us the secret of your leather work?
