    Help with NMM - Sanguinor WIP

    I just wanted to get a critique of my NMM. I am new to it and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I am also having trouble with smoothness. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you kidding me?!?!!?? Your NMM is seamless. Blending is good but can be improved slightly (but it's already better than anything i've ever done). Finish him up and you'll have a great looking model!

    How long have you been painting?

    Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback

    I have been in the hobby since 2002 but I have taking painting more seriously since 2006. I want to get better but I never get much time to paint

    A few questions:

    1.) What is NMM?

    2.) How much would you charge for another model assembled and painted exactly like this and shipped to my home address?

    He looks great!

    NMM = Non-metallic metal.

    Glad you like it!

    @Darguth: I know you were probably joking about painting you one but I am actually painting this to sell on ebay. When I put it up for auction I will let you know

    I think the sword looks quite good, but there are ways to improver your NMM skill. I like the quite smothe transition between the bright and the dark colour. You can go even darker in the shade if you like, that will take away some of the "plastic" feel and make it a little more metallic. Next part I have trouble with is that I cant understand the direction of your light source, its because you're reflection points and shades make up a even pattern, this take away some of the NMM. One side of the sword are getting less light then the other side, so there should be more shade on one side and less on the other.

    Im not a big fan op using allots of reflection points when painting swords, If I would have painted a sword similar to yours here are a few changes.

    Where I have painted red is where i think the shade should be and greed is the bright spots. As you can see, side 1 will be brighter then side 2. The reflection points on side 2 are smaller, compared to the bright points. Also I would make the bright parts larger on side 1. Hope this will help some the next time you paint a sword.


    This is just my opinion and you are free to think that im wrong

    I have not been active in the forum in some time so I just post a few pictures of my painted NMM swords/models


    Keep the paint diluted and thin :)

    Zen is right on the money regarding highlighting etc.
    He is a tad good, that fellow.

    If you are having difficulty with smooth layers, I'd recommend trying out using a Glaze Medium in your mixes to add transparency and slightly extend drying time. You can then feather the layer into the layer below, giving a very fine, smooth finish.

    He is looking good so far, though, so keep up the good work!

    Here is a pic of the most recent picture I have. NMM is pretty difficult to pull off...

    @ Zen: Great work and thanks for the suggestions! I am going to practice your suggestion on another blade and if the result turns out well I will change the sanguinor blade.

    Thanks again everyone for your feedback!
