I'm not completely done with this guy yet, but I want to show off his progress so far. If you saw my previous post I'd like to again iterate this is my first time painting minis. I don't want to gloat but I'm just SO happy with how these have come out thus far! Maybe you guys can give me some helpful info on how the hell I keep the paint from coming off the edge of his teeth. Every time I put paint on the teeth he's missing the paint on the tips =[
hey man, you should be proud of this model, expecially if it's one of your first minis.
A couple of suggestions if I may:
I think you should try and work a bit cleaner, theres a bit of spillage here and there. Cleaning it up will make the model look alot better.
Are you applying your colours in multiple coats? I think I can still see a bit of the previous colour showing through.
Just practice and you'll be churning out awesome looking miniatures in no time at all.
What I really like about the model is the little front tabard ( the orange one ) it has a very nice tone to it. It's nice and solid. You also have a very pleasing rust effect on the power klaw aswell.
Keep up the good work. Rep+
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
I'm trying to do a little bit of blending, but the tabard was the first succesful blending/layering I did. I think the color you're talking about being able to see under would be the pistol holders and the wrist cloth? I think those look pretty bad at the moment and plan on attempting to layer them a little bit better. I will need to go back and do just a tad cleaning up touches to the places I accidentally spilled paint over. Thanks a million for the comments and the suggestions!
Note- the cloth on the wrist looks terrible because I was convinced last night that I could effectively layer after my sleeping pill set in. >_<
Overall, I like this guy. I noticed a mold line on his right wrist, though. As to the teeth, try using paint that's not as thin, or just drybrushing it on. I'm really digging the rust effect on the klaw. How did you do it?
Mold lines- I haven't done anything about those on any of my models =p
Rust effect- It's more of a chipped/scratched away paint effect. First is the base red and then from what I've noticed on any machinery is that the edges usually have had the paint scratched and dinged away. What I did though was use really small brush and kind of line the edges of metallic objects and then dry brush or pull it away from that edge.
EDIT: 1 final thing, 10.1 megapixel camera in SUPER close-up shooting mode shows everything, even things you can hardly see from just holding up to your face.
