From experience, I know that painting 200+ lasrifles is really mind numbing, and it hurts a bit when you are scooping them off the table in handfuls...because they are guardsmen, that's what they do...die

Exactly, lol. Another reason I did that, was in going over pictures of current military gear, they are generally camoed (my ogryns), or just a plain color. Further solidifying why I painted them the same color as the fatigues. I think it's pretty effective, and the misty drybrush is just enough to pick out the edges et etc and still look clean

that termy is quite a good mini, the highlights are top notch! and i like the concept of the different metallic helmets! this is a nice and fluffy idea that sets this "blue" marine apart from all the other "blue" marines...

holy cow what a zoom...guess i feel now a bit low with my cam...

the psyker lord looks simply awsome...you just have to make love to these eyebrows^^ and i am too marveling at your brushcontrol...do you use a magnifying glass when painting???

Thanks fellas Some days im just feeling it i guess
@ Vik, No sir i dont use a magnifying glass. Just Extremely Fine Brushes that hold their point very well. (Micron) I could photo em if you want And Also i Use a light that projects 100% White light so i see my colors perfectly clear. The magnifying glass kinna messes up my perspective but i think if i mastered it i could get to another level of painting. Who knows.. Id like to know who here DOES use a magnifying lens.

ok guys, here is a quick shot of the brushes, and obviously i use them in lots of various sizes. Also, not to interrupt the updating pictures of the finished stuff, ogryns, tanks etc etc, im going to simultaneously update pics of my FIRST WIP on the this blog. Officially making it a P AND M!!! WOOHOOO. Ok Its my second commissar, and hes a victim of two projects that are forcing my hand in the colors i choose. Firstly i want him to be using a power sword, and have OSL across his chest and face from it. So that is blue. Secondly i want the overcoat to be a leather duster. So that is brown. Hmmm Blue and brown....well, that doesnt leave alot of room on the spectrum, so heres how its gonna go down. The main hues will be brown and grey. Any metallics will most likey be of some kind of brown. The rest of the fatigues will be a grey of sorts...and the spot color. Blue. Will be used on the sash, Plasma chamber, And power blade. Here are the first 3-4 steps of the duster. Its a ways to go, i need to clean up some lighting and shadows etc, but i will, and its getting there...

the brushes

the commissar. step 1 base coat

step 2

step 3

step 4

ok bebop, the brushes certainly don´t ring a bell inside me, but then i have next to no know how of brushes^^ i get mine mostly cheap at stores that sell writing needs and such stuff...so my brushes leave much to be desired but i gues they match my current skill^^ as for magnifying glasses, some here use them, me, i own a
but i have the same problems of perspective and my eyes get serious strained from trying to keep one eye shut as the glass is too small for two... so i don´t use it...for error solving concerning painting i now mostly rely on my WIP pics i make continiously^^...
the main thing i see has a very important ring to me is the 100% daylight sourcebulbs...one of these days i should invest in one of these for my desk... that seems to be a good thing to do...always get better results when working in sunlight anyways^^

i really like how you even start your current project! you make a very thorough planning. color harmonics is a very important and often underestimated skill, looks like you are a pro when it comes to making your homework^^

the recent pics are very good, and they even work as a turorial in a way! so thanks for that^^
also they leave me with one question to ask: am i right that the arm of yon commissar is still lying unattached on the desk? will you later on glue it in place? what kind of glue will you then use? because am i guessing right, the connective points then will have paint over them?

and if i didn´t say it comprehensively enough: great work, even on this early stage, very promising and i look forward to more installments of theis pro-ject (pun intended^^)

cheers, vik

well there are those (a selected few) that would describe me as a connoisseur of a certain style of art...^^ *nudge, nudge, nudge*

and i meant the oponents victim^^ not yours...er ...pilot^^

if you stick to these muted tones with your commissar then he could be a real film noir commissar...thought about something in the lines of casablanca but when searching for pics i realised the nazis there all wore plain bright uniforms so that was no help^^ but i really like the greatcoat of him! also i think you got a very good talent for fabrics... the coat looks very realistic...i hope that this wont counter side your more comicesque minis...but then a commissar is bound to stand out^^

vik, the dedicated^^

thanks brian Ive had the day off so ive been doing a bit of painting all day, and have made more progress on my commissar. Im going to upload a bunch of shots, the first being a close up of the face from basically stage 2. With the flesh wash painted into the crevices...the rest of the full shots are about 3 stages past...with several more to go...i tend to be all over the place in my order of painting so different parts are on different stages of highlights...anyways here you go...obvi WIP, things will get cleaned up (The collar by his left cheek has been spotted by accident etc etc...), maybe redone....PS the plasma chamber i will probably redo, or touch up greatly, its proving to be tricky to layer on such fine lines...

the face stage 3

the color palette i generally work with for mid tones....Dwarf flesh / Bleached bone....later stages add white

the full model around 50% completion




Whatcha Guys think? Does the color scheme work?

second the irritation about the blue sash...for me the plasma effect on the spindle and the sash shouldn´t be done in a matching color...kind of looks odd to me as if these two parts were related which in fact we know they aren´t... the face looks way cool! agressive, a tad ill (in a grim dark way) and oozing authority^^

hehe ya i suppose so, but my other commissar on page 1 has the blue sash too so its meant to be. :p

hmmm Vik, you make a strong point...The other options are brown...another gry.... maybe purple....i dunno....the sword is going to be blue too. Im staying true to the holy trinity of color management but i may have placed some wrong...actually...Im surprised you dont like it lol, i thought youd dig the cartoony ness but now that you mention it, your reasons for dislike make tons of sense...i dunno...ill update you guys as i progress...well see what happens...
