    Hey all, as promised I finally got my hands on a camera. I don't have hardly anything finished yet, but I wanted to share with you guys what I have done so far! :D

    Forgive the horrid blurriness of these pics, I am absolutely terrible with a camera. Also, the lighting is terrible too (yeah...I paint in terrible lighting, I don't think I've ever had a properly lit work area lol.)


    Saurus Warrior: This was a rather rough paint job - the transitions on the scales, spines, and skin will be much more subtle on the rest of them. It is hard to see in these pics, but his eye is about this color, so that it stand out from the body, but not so much that it distracts. The weapon is not finished, and obviously neither is the base.

    Slann Mage-priest - His palaquin is not finished yet. Again, lighting and pic quality are terrible, so the transitions on the skin are hard to see. The transitions on the lighter parts are not done and need to be blended a bit more, but overall you can see the general idea.

    Palaquin is finished!

    I'll get pics of it up tomorrow, after I figure out how to delete photos off the camera lol.

    Thanks! :smug:

    So...palaquin will be done tomorrow, after work. Ended up getting pulled into a trip to Buffalo Wild Wings for beer n' wings, which of course takes up a good majority of a night :D

    The models look great, fantastic paintjob so far. The colors on the slaan work very well.

    I´m looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Thanks! :D

    Palaquin pics will be up tomorrow. With and without Slann on it.

    I believe my next project is going to be my sallies, and then maybe finish the stegadon i started 6 weeks ago.

    Cheers!

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host

    Alright! Finally figured out how to work the camera a little better (and by a little I mean an exremely small amount lol)

    Sorry for the big pics! (no idea how to make them a little smaller)

    First up is the palaquin without the Slann - The skink there on the side I think turned out pretty well. I was kind of experimenting with colors and some shading on him, so I'm sure it could've turned out better, but I'm happy with how it looks. The spikes were also a new method of blend washing that I was trying out, which I also think turned out pretty well considering it being my first attempt at it.

    CIMG0192-1.jpg

    And then a couple pics with the Slann on it - The lighting I took these pics in made the whole model seem a bit shiny, even though it really isn't in person. I'm sure the matte clear coat I'll be putting on will solve that. (Couple of these pics are sort of blurry, sorry!)

    Lookin' good! I think the color of the skink is a good change. I just painted a lot of skinks in blue. Can't stand painting blue for a while now :p

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    Yeah it will probably take me a long time to finish my saurus, hehe, but I'd rather have em look good the first time around than repaint them a hundred times or have them look bad. It may take a year or more..but i'll get em finished eventually :D


    My sallies are about half way done, should have them done soon! :smug:

    Your palaquin is looking good. :D
    Slann looks decent, I am thinking
    he is missing a little something....
    Hmm... Maybe another layer
    of highlights or something ...? :shifty:

    Yeah, the pics are terrible, he actually has about 3 layers of blended highlights on the skin, but the lighting and poor camera taking abilities make it look rather flat and single colored. I'm going to go back and touch up the tan areas and might make the highlights stand out a tad more on the blue while I'm at it.

    Thanks for the C&C, it's always appreciated. :smug:

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host (Warning: big pics! Palaquin done!)

    Got an update for ya'll. :D

    Salamanders are finished! I'm getting a bit faster at painting, which is good, though I'm still easily distracted :D .

    Again, pics are pretty crappy, but oh well. Also, due to lighting etc etc again, some of the finer highlights are very hard to see. Obviously, bases aren't finished. I plan on doing everything at once.


    Pic of both of them together:
    CIMG0206.jpg

    And side views of just one of them (since they are both the same pretty much)

    Enjoy! :smug:


    -I may go back and lightly devlan mud wash the claws.

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host (Warning: big pics! Sallies done!)

    Looks great, nice work! My only comment would be on the base, but as you say it is not finished. It will look even better when it is! :)

    Thanks :D

    I started a TG model as soon as I posted the sally pics, I'm attempting to speed paint...I'd say he's about 80% done already...so it's goin pretty smooth. Should have pics up before I sleep tonight!

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host (Warning: big pics! Sallies done!)

    TG - Weapon isn't done nor is the base, but this is my planned scheme for all of my TG. The red looks really flat and single colored in these pics, it is wet blended 3 different shades, rather subtle effect. Noticeable in person, not so much in these terrible pics I take o_O

    Enjoy! :D

    CIMG0220.jpg
    CIMG0214.jpg
    CIMG0218.jpg



    All in all, the TG took me about 3 hours total to progress it that far. Much faster than I normally paint, so I'm pleased with the results.

    As always, C&C is welcome! :smug:



    -I was going to make the shield brown, but decided against it...what do you guys think?

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host (Sallies done! TG WIP pics up!)

    Ok, I ended up changed the TG's shield black with grey highlights and it looks a heck of a lot better (the blue was just giving me a uneasy feeling).

    I started painting my command for my HW+SH saurus, so I should have those pics up within the next couple days as well as possibly a skink priest.

    Cheers!

    Re: WIP Lizzy Host (Sallies done! TG WIP pics up!)

    Got an update for ya folks! They are both still WIP, but I was excited about the bearer and wanted to see what you guys thought about it. :smug:


    Saurus Warrior HW+SH standard bearer and musician (and the one I posted earlier). I attempted some crazy freehand on the banner because...well I just didn't want it to be one color. Musician and Bearer need some finishing highlights and they should be good to go.

    I may be getting worse with the camera, I can't tell...lol.

    Here's the pic of all 3 together:
    CIMG0221.jpg

    And then closer pics of the banner:
    CIMG0226.jpg
    CIMG0227.jpg
    CIMG0222.jpg


    C&C welcome as always :smug: Cheers!


    - What should I do next? help! :jawdrop:. 1. Finish the unit of saurus (24 total) 2. Finish my Steg 3. Two skink priests 4. or my high elves.
