Think I'm now getting into the territory of actually having to look some stuff up before claiming any more of these. Looking forward to it!

Yeah this has been an unexpectedly fun experience so far.

Watched a fair bit of Sorastro's painting channel recently and he really shows how to get a good gradient of colour and value across a large area in no time.

Would you mind telling me a video that shows this?

Descent "Ettin" (skin specifically) and Star Wars "Jabba the Hutt" spring to mind. I'd imagine most of his latter videos that include a larger model do that though.

Caedrus, checking in!

OK, so I better update where I am in my 2019 painting deck. Here goes:

Crows

:crow2: Mike-Mack: Try painting a miniature in the Games Workshop Style. 

:crow8: Victorian Painting: Use an object-source-lighting effect.

:crow9: Buddhist: Use the non-metal-metal painting style.

:crow12: Homeopathy: Use a glazing technique on a miniature.

Tomes

:tome3: Thin your paints, must you: Give constructive advice to a fellow painter.

:tome8: Donatello wasn’t just a turtle: Try out your green stuff sculpting skills.

:tome12: Let’s get a little crazy: Paint some freehand, Trompe-l'œil, or patterning effects.

Rams

:ram6: Old School: Paint a metal Wyrd miniature.

:ram9: …and I’ll form the head!: Paint a big stompy robot.

:ram12: Pro Painter: Repaint someone else’s miniature (preferably from eBay).

Masks

:mask1: Wham! Use a fluorescent paint.

:mask3: Saturation: Use inks on a miniature.

:mask6: Mastery in a bottle: Use Umber Wash, Agrax Earthshade, or Vallejo Smoke on a miniature.

:mask9: It’s the consistency, not the taste: Use a water effect, blood effect or texture effect on a miniature.

:mask11: Under pressure: Use an airbrush on a miniature.

:mask12: It puts the lotion on its skin: Use a dip technique.

A couple of reference images:

Sculpting, OSL, and Fluorescents!

A big, stompy, PITA robot.

So, I'm claiming 16 cards!

More importantly, even though I wrote the deck, I'm enjoying the challenge!

Caedrus.

OK, i'll go for the easiest and maybe at the same time the hardest of the deck 13 my worst miniature:

aEfGrnB.jpg


This is a barbarian from MOM miniaturas, a very affordable minis brand, I use it for a custom Zombicide black plague character.

What makes it really bad is that is not even one of my first ones, this one was the first one after a long hiatus in the hobby, and apparently i forgot how to highlight and the meaning of contrast and every other single basics... :D 


Crows
1 - Black belt in blanchitsu (although I'll try again with at least one of my necropunks)
8 - Victorian Painting
9 - Buddhist
Tomes
 13 - My eyes! the googles do nothing!
Rams
 - 
Masks
1 - Wham!
6 - Mastery in a bottle
8 - Break the Seal

Mini is somewhat challenging to read:PBreaks are hard yeah. I haven't had any really long ones yet, but it's always a bit clumsy for the first few minis.

I've been wondering what my worst mini might be. Haven't quite narrowed it down yet.

Funny, I've been having a hard time answering that question myself as well. No problem at all picking my best knee, guess it's down to there being so much more competition on the poor end. 😀

Hello there!

I finished my 3 Necropunks, each one of them in a different style

3 Borderlands  (black lining)

11 Ooh! Shiny!  (infinity style)

RAMS:

1 Despicable Me  (put love into 3 minions)

5 You’re all individuals!  (treat 3 equal named minis as individuals)

 

TOTALS SO FAR:
Crows
1 - Black belt in blanchitsu
3 - Borderlands
8 - Victorian Painting
9 - Buddhist
11 - Oh! Shinny!
Tomes
 13 - My eyes! the googles do nothing!
