I'm jealous. This guy looks amazing.
You know well I meant that I hate you . Real nice work on that Scar-Vet. That weapon is really cool looking!!!! About the Hidan-like weapon, are you planning on adding some chains to the weapon???
Originally, I was going to have some chains on it, but I'm out of those zombie bells (that's what I used to make the chain from the other weapon). I think it looks just fine without it, so I think I'll leave it. I might try and green-stuff a strap on his wrist to the weapon though, like the Kroxigors have. This weapon, after all, is nearly as large as those ones.
Pfff Hidan? Tobi and Deidara all the way, I also watch bleach Youruichi, Urhara and Gin are probaly my favorite characters, I just read through all 15 pages and I have to say that I likes the Skink priest the most, I dont know why it jsut stand's out to me. Nice job on your models, i whish i was a good of a painter as you.
Consider this scheme borrowed/stolen.
Looks utterly wicked! Loving it.
This may be relevant to your interests: I started a challenge called Mini A Day in the Month Of May (or MADMOM for short), in which I paint up one mini a day for the duration of the month of May, and make a video blog about it on the 7th day. Anyways, I decided to paint 7 Lizardmen models during the second week, and here's the video if you're interested in seeing the results.
I love your converstions. What kind of tools do you use. I plan to do some minior conversions and i'm just putting it off. I.m afriad to start.
And i'm also intrested in the way you glue your models to paint bottles. I am pretty new to painting. And i have a pretty big problem with lighting and my hands casting shadows at all the wrong times. I was wondering if that was the reason you stick them on there. And also i assume younuse some pretty week glue. Has one ever fallen off mid painting?
Nice video - must be really hard to paint with the camera in the way like that! I'm not normally a fan of blue lizardmen, but yours look great. Nice work on re-doing that Skink leader - I have the same model and have yet to tackle him. I really love your Slann too - especially the blue and red veins on his white skin Looking forward to seeing more work!
Very nice video
Love the video!! Inspiring!
Can I ask how you painted the severed head hanging from the musician's drum?
That video is so good. Super inspired. Keep it up.
Oh and your miniatures look great!
Thanks for watching the video, guys! Unfortunately, shortly after this project, a dreadful thing happened. In Alberta, we call it summer, and it lasts for about three months, so anyone in a Carpentry-related trade has to fit a full year's worth of outside work into said time period. Needless to say, I've been very busy with work, and I'm still going to school part-time as well, so I've been a little too busy to put brush to model.
To answer your questions:
@DanBot: The most important tool I use is my imagination. [Wow, that sounded a lot less corny in my head] But really, you should have most of the stuff you'd need to do most of the stuff I do already. I use an exacto knife to do any cuts I need to do, and a nail file makes a good emery board if you don't want to buy the expensive GW-brand ones. I use GW's Green Stuff as well as Gale Force 9's Grey Stuff to sculpt, and my favorite tool to use is a toothpick (I like to suck on the end to get it moist - that way, it won't stick to the putty).
And I don't actually glue the model onto the top of the pot - I use sticky tack, the same stuff that you would use to hang a poster on your wall. I put a big ball of it on the top of the pot, and then just stick the model on top of that. The main reason I do this is to keep myself from rubbing the fresh paint off the miniature I'm working on - it's a good habit to get into.
@T`hinker`er: When I first started painting in videos, it was a bit tricky, but I got used to it really fast. More work will be making an appearance as I get more time to do so.
@Lord Tsunami: Thanks!
@Wolf: I can't really remember. I think it's Scorched Brown highlighted with different flesh tones. Sorry I couldn't give you a more in-depth analysis of my technique - I stumbled on it accidentally while trying to achieve an entirely different look.
what colours did you use for slann and his palanquin?
