Textured palette? Intriguing. Look forward to seeing this process.

This is his latest video, drybrushing 4 shades of yellow. The general idea of the textured palette is to get exactly the amount of paint you need for drybrushing. As you can try it out beforehand on the palette

Hey guys, small update from my side. I managed to get the ogre pretty much done. I'm happy with the face now and only have the right hand left to cover up
Let me know what you think





I also cast quite a few elementals that will be shipped out soon

Great teeth! The whole face, really. Quite cool. Nice looking casts. A veritable elemental horde.

@youwashock: Thanks a lot! The face is always the hardest part but I am very happy with how it turned out
@Boss Salvage: I could do even more if you are still looking to get your hands on some of those air elementals?


I think I can finally call another sculpt completely done! The only thing I might change here is the ring on his sword, I might switch it out to a wire ring instead of the green stuff as it would hold better I think. Other than that I only need to smooth out the rope a bit once it is cured. I am very happy with him and love everything about him
I was sceptical about the face at first but in the end I think I got it to work. It is about 4 or 5 different layers of green stuff with each curing in between and always only adding tiny details and volumes.

Enjoy the end result and let me know what you think

Spoiler:












As a side note, I am also making progress on the bust, it is just not very exciting as I am only covering smooth armor with a thin layer of green stuff

Your ogre looks great The details and musculature are top notch, but what impresses me most of all is how smooth and seamless you create each part and layer, that's something I am struggling with right now.

Thanks Syro
That is definetely something that I struggled with quite a bit too. Sometimes I even still do, I feel like the face might even have a few transition lines. What I found to work best was to not use green stuff alone, I always mix it with Aves Apoxie sculpt. This makes it cure quite hard so you can sand it afterwards if you wish, I also find it helpful to have a solid layer underneath my next one. Not sure if this makes sense, I could try to draw up a quick picture too, but basically you take a metal tool and drag youur fresh putty over the old layer until it is super thin and you scrape the rest off. For me that makes the best transition

Thanks for the advice Pneumo. Yes, what you are saying, does make sense. I didn't realize your sculpts weren't pure green stuff. It's funny, Aves Apoxie Sculpt is exactly what I mix with my green stuff too, that's why my sculpts are often that pale green. What kind of ratio of green stuff to Apoxie sculpt do you like to use?

I actually cheated on the last ogre pictures and added a bit of green back in with my phone settings I am pretty much always using a 50/50 ratio of aves and green stuff, so good choice there


Last update for the ogre, while it was curing I decided to cut in a bit of detail for the rope to mimic the original print. Now he really is all done




Besides some other small projects and the bust where I am making constant small progress, I also managed to slap some more paint on that Khornate looking fellow. His armor is all set with the right shade and only needs the battle damage. I decided to go for purple power weapons and tried my hand at those. Really happy with the axe and somewhat happy with the sword I might go back and change the sword and claw of my terminator
Other than that he is still work in progress, but he is coming along nicely!

Love that purple lightning. Gives me 40K Warduke vibes with that blue armor.

Thanks yowashock, I'm trying to push myself a bit with my painting skills


I de-nurglyfied a Dark Imperium Death Guard marine and made a little diorama base for him. The base was inspired by Istvaan V, including a Raven Guard helmet.




Pretty happy with how he turned out, might just go back and grime up the blade a bit more

Just catching up with with your ogre now. What a guy! He's really excellent.

And the paint job on your de-nurglyfied Death Guard is super.

Hey-o, popping in to see that I clicked for your Ogre, and got hooked on your de-Nurglefied Plague Marine. Really great concept for a model, really well executed.

Thanks guys! Glad that you all seem to like the Plague Marine, he was a ton of fun to make


I put a few more highlights on his helmet and made his knife a bit rusty, for now I'm calling him done

It's a more tragic part of the story really, this de-deteriorated state. Before the ultimate and unrecoverable corruption. Like maybe there's still a bit of humanity still alive in there. Still a dying ember of hope that he might avoid the doom that awaits.

He's clearly still strong and fast, agile and vital but you can see the tell-tale signs of things to come; the excessively rusty blade, a totem of decay, the battle damaged carapace like an undressed wound inviting infection. The seeds sewn of a long, slow hideous decline.

Really evocative, much more so than some gruesome pustulating tenticle-armed horned plague monster.

That's some delectable rust. Nice choice.

I really like your plague marine, but like everyone else, that rusty blade is standing out to em the most. It's blowing my mind how realistically rusty and decrepit that blade looks.

Well it's been a while since my last update. But rest assured, I'm still around
This hobby kept me sane during my bachelors thesis and now it shall do so again with my master thesis

I dug up an old project that I started in September, the blood angel bust that my brother 3D printed for me. I've then covered up every surface of it with green stuff to smooth it out. Now it is finally finished! It took quite some time, but in the end my will of wanting to see it done and painted was stronger than the boring work of smoothing out everything. I did manage to add a few details that the original did not have and I'm especially happy with the way both shoulders turned out. I think he makes a glorious hawk boy!



Well with this final detail he is finished



For all of you that want to see more of the individual steps that I took to get him to the final stage, here are all the pictures I took along the way:
Spoiler:




















And to test out my airbrush and painting scheme, I create a quick small bust from my bits box
This just screams: Don't talk to me or my son ever again!


The final paint job will be similar, although not quite exactly the same.




As always, let me know what you guys think!

Well I'm impressed. I always appreciate sculpting over a solid base. It's a great guide line.

Thanks Warboss_Waaazag! I definetely enjoy sculpting over a solid base, makes sticking to proportiong so much easier For this particular model I also learned quite a bit about smoothing out your sculpt, which is also super useful.

Back to the projects at hand! I've been quite busy in my hours after work and managed to completely paint the blood angel bust. On top of that I also fine tuned the supports on a primaris bust 3D model that I found online, so I made a few of those. You can never have to many unfinished projects at once, right?

This is the final result for my blood angel bust, I'll take some better pictures another time. I'm super happy with how it turned out in the end
There's more pictures below of some WIP shots, as well as more of the final model.


And this is the first print of the primaris bust, unfortunately the backpack and the right arm didn't print at all. The normal shoulder pad and helmet also printed faulty. So after fixing the supports and printing it again (with great success as seen below), I did what any person in my position would do. I converted the model to chaos
Again, more pictures below in the spoiler.


And finally here we have the good version of the print, there's still a few tiny mistakes in it but overall it prints great. That's why I already have 3 sitting on my desk
And once more, there's , more pictures in the spoiler.



Painting on the big bust:
Spoiler:

I primed everything black and then gave it a coat of white from above. Probably would've worked better with a more transparent paint in the end, but you can see a bit of color transition in the final model.




Now with a proper red coat of paint.


A few layers of paint, unfortunately I did not take many WIP shots. But I really like the battle damage and marble effect





Putting it all together







Finished paintjob
Spoiler:

Extremely happy with how it turned out! I gave the whole model an oil wash to darken it down and to shade the recesses. I could've done a lot more on the black in terms of highlights, but I wasn't feeling confident enough for that. I'll probably practice that on my new smaller busts and then maybe come back to this.
My favorite parts are definetely the marble, gemstones and eyes






Chaos bust:
Spoiler:

And here we have our "failed" print, did a bit of battle damage on the front with some extra sculpted teeth. A new chaotic helmet, as the support under the fron of the helmet didn't print correctly. His right side got a nice tentacle arm and chaotic shoulder pad, the holes will be filled with teeth. Last but not least he will get a custom power pack on the back, as that also did not print. I mean sure, I could print all the missing parts and have another clean bust, but where's the fun in that?






New space marine bust resin print:
Spoiler:

Not much to tell here, there's a few more pouches, gun holsters and bits I could print to add to this. Overall I'm happy with how it looks, one will probably get a custom chapter emblem sculpted and be painted in the custom colors of my cousin. Other than that I'm not sure what I will paint these 3 guys in

How nice to see that you still make this kind of small figurines. Your bust turned out just perfect, as a fan of the warhammer game series, I would give all my money for this. Although I probably shouldn't buy something like this because the kids will break it anyway. They are already difficult to calm down, and if they see something like this, they will not be able to sit still for any reason.
