I said I would post these up to see if you guys could give me any tips. I don't play bloodbowl but love the minis for the new human team, so I decided to buy a team. I have put a few coats of paint on them but I am not over the moon about the way the red is turning out. So any tips on this colour would be great, of course any other tips or critisims would be amazing too. They are fairly early WIP progress though so no "messy" comments right.
It would be great if you could comment on the picture quailty too because I did some jiggery pokery in iphoto to see if I could make them clearer. I think they turned out better than the other photo attempts I have tried. If one thing the previous comps have thought me is that a good photo goes a long way.
So without further ado.........
Hmm.. not bad CC, tis messy though. The first picture is dark but the paint looks rather glossy, I would start with darker shades. The skin looks alright if a little blotchy in places.
Keep it up and us informed.
Yea I agree with you about the blotchy skin Kuffy. It actually seems to me I might have taken too good pictures as they seem to be bringing out flaws which are not visible to the eye.
I want to have glossy armour, to try and make it look as if the armour has glossy paint applied. But I was hoping to use gloss varnish to give the gloss effect rather than my painting
So any tips on the red guys, I want a vibrant colour........
The skin can improve easily, washes and layering will work. The armour, a vibrant red can be made by using a red ink mixed into the red; I have done this before. It can make the paint a bit shiney if too much is used but for your purposes I would say that be a good thing. Worth a try.
I love bloodbowl and I really like the new human team. I may have to pick one up someday.
Here is a tip for your pictures - for human sized models you should aim for a 300-400 pixel max on the height. This will give you pictures that are the size of the model or just a bit bigger. Anything larger will showcase all the little discrepencies of the model rather than the paintjob!
For the reds - what is the look you are going for? Dark red, bright red? If you are going for a darker red I don't think you need much. Maybe a watered down scab red with a touch of blood red. For brighter reds just keep applying the lighter reds leaving some of the darker reds showing.
Personally I feel that the ball is a bit too light - but that is more of a personal taste than anything. I don't think that gloss translates well at this scale and always recommend a flat varnish to get rid of the shine. It is my belief that models look so much better (probably because it is easier to see all the details) with no shine at all.
Look forward to seeing them finished. Bloodbowl has a soft spot in me! :yes:

Well, this looks pretty good, but it looks rather blotchy, shiny and rushed, you should also work on the white, othr wise, I do love the model and I like the colours you chose.

Ever thought of how cheese was found?:

Thanks mustardknight. The model is not finished yet, its an early WiP. The white is actually the first coat and its white but very near to it. Its Vajello ghost grey........
