Thanks Gits and CB! Appreciate it!

Gits yea im looking for more small core games to play and paint for. Im really itching to paint just singles and small squads at e moment, since i finished my space sharks army which...

BY the WAY, you guys....will be featured on the GW community website along with a essay i wrote about painting the army! It has a ton of pictures of things you all havent yet seen, INCLUDING an awesome army shot of everything. It was a special thing for me If i can ill post the photos that didt make the final cut from from the shoot to dakka because im not sure im allowed to post the same images going up on the gw site.

anyways!! thanks you guys for looking and saying hey

Bebop

Congratulations bebop, that sounds awesome!

There are some really interesting models in the range... every faction has some really neat figures in it.

Thanks Dr H ! Not sure when it drops but im excited for it!

in the meantime i have finished my stormcast eternal, Severin Steelheart. Spent a bit o' time with this one, and as usual focused on painting things that make me uncomfortable or intimidate me! in this case, BRONZE nmm! yikes >_< ... and also a very dark flesh skin tone! With alot of purple and mint green in it! the head has seen some controversy, even boarding a little social insensitivities...either ways, I may revisit the head to push a few highlights up but I’m pleased enough with it and also a certain point one just needs to move on the base I wanted to look more desert sandstone so I clipped off all leaves and vines . Anyways I hope you like, definitely a fun challenge and as I said I’m not mad it

Happy painting,
Bebop











Cheers and have a great holiday!

That has to be the best rendition of that model I have seen. Your paintwork is just divine.

Holy , bebop - you just keep raising the bar... I think the most admirable things about your work (aside from the sheer level of talent/skill) is that (like you mentioned previously) you keep finding ways to challenge yourself and then turning those into things you excel at.

As to this guy in particular: I LOVE the monochromatic look of the armor and base with the brilliant blue/purple standing out against it. Really nice complement and contrast at the same time. Your NMM technique is also amazing - that's something I find particularly difficult and it's essentially flawless here IMO.

My one (minor) quibble would be that I feel like his face could maaaaaaybe use something - another level of highlight, some white in the eyes, etc. His face is nicely done but gets lost a just bit among the gold of his armor.

Very nicely done, Mr. B. Bop, nicely done indeed.

Now get to painting minis worthy of your skills.

Ah, the Bronze effect is very convincing. However... try an even stronger contrast on it, like what you've done with the sword. Practice and experiment first though. I think the effect would be dramatic in a good way.

It is very good as is. Don't let my C&C bring you down. I am an old curmudgeon these days.

@ Aku : Thanks so much ! <3
@ Red Harvest: Thank you sir! No worries! i plan on experimenting and practicing more with more pronounced contrast! Always appreciate the 100% real critique its invaluable! Especially coming from you, a great painter.
@Gomez Thanks alot! I definitely try challenge myself with each mini! No Fear!!! Im studying your minis as im working on painting skin now and its very far from my comfort zone tbh, And i mean not, base coat, wash brown, then layer...i mean like you are doing it with purples and reds and all kinds of depth! Keep it up so i can learn too!
@Dr H: Ha, thanks man ! Im glad you noticed that was a fun little touch to do
@Cam: thanks dude!!
@Inevitable Faith: Thanks! Who are you on IG?? i like to know and make sure i follow my dakka buds, seems more personal on IG! or more immeadiate, which ever lol...(Ps if its a private thing you dont have to say! Just if you have a painting account there as well...)
@igTr Thanks alot !! Theres quite a few absolutely jaw dropping versions of this model which quite frankly i used three different versions as a guideline on how to paint certain parts. I learned alot studying them then trying to match it in a way but in my color scheme.
@Whale : Thanks man Id paint you some DnD figs :p

@Faith: Right on! I’ll follow you!!

Yo all, just dropping in to leave a few wip photos on the olllll blog a boo....
Working on a chaos cultist from the Shadespire box, painting these new plastics from GW, in general, is just really a pleasure.
The skin is mostly done in area that seem finished, lol, the neck area is early wip, mostly because i need to see how the head is going to fit before i go full gd on it only to have it be hidden completely...
Things I’m focusing on here are adding more colors for depth. Green an purple glazes and reds on the skin, even the sword has a lot going on in terms of glazes with purple teal and red...
Have a look








Happy New Years everyone May 2019 bring alllllll the hobby goodness<3

Going classic red on the armor, or something else?

An excellent start.

I tend to get that effect not on the back of my thumb, but rather on my thumbnail. (I use some paints with cadmium in them. I prefer to to get that on my skin.) I sometimes forget to wipe it all off. I get strange looks from people sometimes. It's to be expected with a thumbnail that looks like a Jackson Pollack painting.
