  1. Lots of great stuff here again, for now just a quick update from me. More here: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/05/marcus-x3.html My 45ss for this month.
  2. Hello wonderful people, this is my pledge for the month of May. Marcus x 3. One classic metal version, and two plastic ones (the one with the top hat will be painted to look like a Voodoo doctor).
  3. Quick paintjob on these three for a buddy just to get them on the table, nothing fancy but they bring my total to 65 ss this month.
  4. @wobbly_goggy - nice paintjob. You could try taking pics using some kind of background, even a piece of paper. The way it is now, the mini kind of blends with what's in the back. @Athiko - Great work all around. I really like what you did with Carrion Effigy, the Osl adds a nice vibrant touch there. The Exorcists look very nice too, lovely blending on the cloaks though I'd add some dirt to the bottom there. @Purple Mist - that definitely looks intriguing. The thing about colorshift paints is that taking pics of minis painted with them is really hard as they work well when you rotate the mini and look at it from different angles. @Franchute - love the armor color, very nice, smooth highlights there and the weathering looks top notch too. The "dirty" metallics also work very well here. @Boomstick - nice productivity and some really epic conversions going on there @Polar43 - nice work on the gamin and I really like the way you've arranged terrain on such a small base. I also really like the vibrant skin tone you're using for your Gremlins. @Diddick - one again I have to admit that you're making these bright colors work really well on these minis. Two Myrandas bring me to 16 ss more this month, a total of 50 ss for April, more may come As always, more ppics on my blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/04/myranda-warning.html
  5. @Diddick - love the colors on this one. So completely different than my "gritty" approach when it comes to undead minis but painted consistently to a very high level. @muraki - such cool minis and I like the bright colors you've used here. These are by far the coolest versions in the range. They eyes seem a bit off but this still works in terms of Manga-like overall aesthetics @Caedrus - nice start on the conversion. I envy people skilled enough to tackle complex projects with GS. I can basically only do gap-filling and hair/fur sculpting. The NMM on containers looks great and the blades are just amazing! I've finished the Cerberuses so together with 16ss for two Samurai I am now at 34ss for April. I decided to use blue for the most part as I've always struggled with this color on larger surfaces. It was a little easier here as there is some fur texture on the main body to serve as guidance. I started with some general highlights on the body, making sure to leave enough dark blue in the recesses. Following that, I kept adding numerous thin brushstrokes in gradually brighter colors to build up the fur texture. It was a very lengthy and tedious process but it was a good practice for sure. I added some touches of brown/dark red and glazes of light blue and green to keep it more "natural" (as much as this word can be used to talk about blue fur of a three headed Tiger). I also thought that blue would nicely contrast with a predominantly green base. I'd like to start on Myranda but I'm still waiting for the paints to paint her skin to look like a Native-American. As always, more pictures on my blog http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/04/tyger-tyger-burning-bright.html
  6. Yeah, I needed to fit the one standing on the rock into the resin base and remove the whole rock part for the other one to fit him onto the forest themed rocky base + sculpted around with GS. They should be ready in a day or two though
  7. Painting fur takes ages, here's a quick wip with about a thousand brushstrokes in...
  8. I think they actually look better IRL as light reflects on the surface and causes different color to be the focal point as you move them. I've used them also while working on Guild Ball commission so you can see a few more examples here http://www.whatthefaux.net/2018/12/guild-ball-blacksmiths-guild.html Celestial Azure was the color I've used for their blue armor.
  9. Red Goblin from colorshift set by Greenstuffworld (the paint can be bought separately). I only added a little black ink in the recesses and lightly touched up the edges with bright silver.
  10. @Franchute - love the look of yellow armor plates on your Peacekeeper. Smooth highlights on yelow and top notch brushwork on weathering. Really looking forward to seeing this one painted! You've made a great start and should be able to finish this month's pledge without too much effort @Burnin' Coal - thanks for the comment, appreciate it. Truth be told, this time I had it easy as the colorshift paint saved me a lot of time. That being said, I got "into the zone" while painting these models and when this happens I don't even notice when time passes. Next mini (Sabretooth Cerberus) will defiintely take more time - bigger model and more work on highlighting the fur. @lusciousmccabe - I actully like these models and will probably be painting them in near future. My opinion may change when I start working on them though
  11. Had a productive day/night and here are first two minis for April's pledge for a total of 16ss.
  12. Like @Phinn, I typically listen to audiobooks. Some of the recent ones I've listened to were: Little Fires Everywhere, The Fisherman, The Break Down, The Neuroscience of Mindfulness, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Eric Idle. I also listen to ESCP's interviews and studio talks on NBA as I've been following the league for years now.
  13. Here's my pledge for April. Two Samurai for something different (will be using colorshift paints on their armors), two Myrandas (fitting them onto bases was a lot of fun, I needed to use some GS there) and two Sabretooth Cerberuses (once again, making sure they both fit into the bases I had for them was a bit tricky but I think now they look like they fit there perfectly)/
  14. @Rathnard - I like the gritty look of the models, it works nicely with pink portals. @emiba - nice work on all minis, the sickly purplish skin tone works really well. I'd only suggest adding a light brown wash on the pupils and teeth as this will make them blend in with the rest better. @Franchute - totally dig the super smooth highlights and color choices on these, great job!
  15. @Athiko - really like the use of blue on these, it adds a nice element of contrast to pale skin. @Chou - nice, clean paintjob on the family. And definitely get a LED-light whitebox, can't go wrong with it! @OctaBit - nice selection, the Warped are my favorites, really like these models! @bedjy - the fur on Tanuki looks excellent and the bright colors you've used work really well there. The diorama looks great too! @Phinn - that actually looks like a mini diorama, great job! @Kimberly - nice looking terrain you have there, I'm sure it will draw many looks at Adepticon @Caedrus - I think many Polish painters paint this very special kind of water with some extra % in it, this may be the key here! And you can add 24ss to my pledge this month :) And I really like your Acolytes, blue isn't easy to work with on larger flat surfaces but their cloaks look great here! @Nikodemus - nice highlights on red skin, like the contrast with black spider body. @Stranglelove - Rhino is my favorite here by far, great model and you've done it justice with excellent brushwork. @emiba - looking really good, two more day to finish so keep at it ;) @Franchute - the base looks great, as always, now just finish the mini :) @lusciousmccabe - both the base and mini look very good, nice and clean paintjob. @prof_bycid - love the vivid shades of green/yellow, they suit this model so well! @wobbly_goggy - sweet paintjob on the Fire Golem. Working all those flames up can be a daunting task (been there!) but you've made it shine ;) Once again, I'm more at home than I'd like to and currently going through third antibiotic cycle. The only good thing is I had a bit more time so I finished four more minis for extra 24ss. More pics on the blog: http://www.whatthefaux.net/2019/03/razorspine-rattlers.html
