Painting for progression


Hawkoon

Recommended Posts

Hello, dear Wyrdos!

It's me again. While I enjoyed hosting the painting challenge last year, my time for painting and follow-up just didn't work out, and sadly I had to give in to real life issues.

However, one month into 2024, I feel a deep hole inside where the challenge used to be. So I am starting out a thread to post community painting progress. No time limits, no pledges, mulligans and buybacks.

Just post what you paint and get friendly feedback from other painters!

I have no idea if this will fly or just rot away in the forum backpages, but thought it worth a try.

I'll start off with my recent nephilim:

Heyo all ! Excellent idea for dear @Hawkoon as always, will definitely support this thread the best I can :D

My last 2 minis, Arhorak and Dreamer Insomniac ;)

Featuring my first 2 attempts at gold nmm (Athorak's weapon and linings on Dreamer PJ) and also a magic portal made out of uv resin xD

Cheers !

These are excellent! Love the portal and the OSL. You've really improved since you started posting in the forums👏

I'm no expert on NMM gold, and I think this looks really good, it's hard to belive it's your first attempt. I think you can go even darker to enhance the illusion of reflecting metal next time. If I've understood the colour theory right, you also want a slightly green hue in the darkest shadows. But I've never actually attempted it myself, so I may be wrong.

Awwww thanks a lot !!! I do my best to learn and apply new technics as often as possible :)

I also feel a bit more confident about light placement and color theory^^

And these are my 2 real first attempts at gold nmm, and my 4th and 5th nmm ever ( the first 3 were the Nekimas and Lilith as Barbaros proxy^^). I feel like nmm helped a ton understanding lighting and colors, I'm surprised myself as how easily it's coming to me now xD

I have a ton of painting I need to do, and I keep telling myself I'll post some wips here and hope that keeps me working on them.  And I keep forgetting.  So that's not a good sign about using this as a reminder to myself. lol  

Hawkoon, I always love those eyeball base toppers.
