It has been a while since I have been on Dakka, thought I would swing back buy and check things out. I also am back to accepting commissions again. I will be using this thread to post pics of current stuff that I am working on. Feel free to ask questions about techniques and such. Feel free to PM me if you are interested in getting some work done.

Buttons Should Be Brass, Not Gold!






Norn Iron

All excellent. Nice blending on that top coat! Looks like there was some airbrushing going on?

I will use an airbrush to base coat and block in shadows and highlights. Then I go back with 2 brush blending and deepen the shadows, push the highlights and restore some of the richness that gets lost.

I was wondering where you had run off to - seemed like I hadn't seen you posting (in P&M or the showcase, at least) for the last few months. Glad to have you back!

I'd be curious to see just how far you take the airbrushing before you switch to blending with the old 'hairy sticks.' If you happen to have the camera handy, any chance of a picture of one of your next models at the transition point? I think a 'before and after' would be quite educational.

When I get going on the Rangers for this project I will see what I can do. I often lurk on here, but since I dont play much 40k anymore I haven't posted much on here. It seems 40k is the only thing around here that gets any attention, but it's all good, I'll just plugging along with my projects.

In the mean time, I finished eCaine last night



I will post more in my "Completed Works Thread"

Thanks for reading this, Long post…

First off, and as I mentioned on Facebook, thanks to the painting community here on the forums. I try to post often and I wish I could respond to everyone! The feedback you guys offer is great!

I have had an idea running around in my head for a while now. I love painting miniatures. My real passion though is teaching. I love it when I can share what I have learned about painting with someone who is interested in painting themselves. I have decided that teaching is the direction I want to push my paint studio toward.

I am working on a system to create custom painting tutorials. In summary the process is simple. You want to paint your army, you may or may not have an idea of what you want it to look like. You also feel like your skills aren’t up to the task. Through discussion between you and me we would develop your paint scheme and chose colors and supplies that you will need and discuss painting techniques you would like to use. Then you would send me a few miniatures from your army, and via a live video stream, I would paint those miniatures putting together all the thoughts we talked about. Color placement, paint application, priming, all those areas you are interested in will be demonstrated. While the streaming video would be public to anyone who wants to view it, only you will have access to me for the purposes of asking questions and demonstrating techniques. The video would then be made available to you for unlimited private or public viewing, you can always go back and look at it again when questions arise. You will also have the demo miniature that I painted to use as reference and guide. Think of it as a virtual painting classroom where you are the only student who can ask the teacher questions. Pretty cool huh!

The prices that I will be charging for these videos will range between $75 and $175 dollars. The type of technique you want demonstrated, size/complexity of the miniature and other details all go into influencing price. When compared to what actual commission rates are for getting an army painted, or for attending painting classes these prices for getting unlimited access to a custom tutorial and consulting are very reasonable.

Now we come to one of the reasons why I want to share this with you guys before I am ready to start running the videos. My startup cost for this is fairly low, I have a dollar amount in mind that will make this happen. This start up capitol would go toward upgrading to a better computer, to acquire video equipment and to take care of other expenses that would need to be addressed. I have been debating if I should go to GoFundMe or Kickstarter to find these funds. I am positive that there are those out there that I know and that you know that would be interested in being part of this. If I can find 10 to 15 people who are interested in getting a custom tutorial video, then this project goes live! I want to talk to them, I want to share this idea with them. If I can find the people that would like to have this done and who want to be the start of something new then these videos can happen.

If questions post them below, I would be really interested in hearing thoughts on this. Feel free to contact me directly at redmodeling@gmail.com or you can reach me through my Facebook page should you not wish to ask your question here.

Thanks for taking the time to read this guys. Regardless of what happens here, I will keep posting my work and keep sharing with you guys!

Here are a few things I am working on. All of these are ready for me to start working the shadows/highlight by hand.







As you can see the shadows are fairly light, the paint is applied thinly so that any over-spray can be easily corrected when highlights are applied. As you can see, nothing to fancy.

Here is an update on the Rangers.



Just 2 more to do in the unit. Basing will be fairly simple, tall grasses basically.

Also, here is a little more progress on Maximus, you can see how much more brush work goes into a model after I do my airbrushing.

That's a really cool Saxon Orrik bust, did you sculpt that or get it from somewhere?

Shadowrun is the best game ever. It's the only thing I have ever played in which I have jumped out of a shot out van with a chainsaw to cut a flying drone in half before leveling a building with ANFO assisted by a troll, a dwarf, an elf, and a wizard.
