Glazing the highlights to remove chalkiness, adding some subtle colour variation to the cheeks, and a little more work on the sword.
Working on Merry the hobbit. Tonight’s updates include, highlighting the hair, adding highlights and shading to the skin, starting to look at working on the sword, additional highlights to the waistcoat for greater contrast, and basecoating the base.
Working on highlights and shading of the clothing.
Continuing to work on basecoats
Making some progress on my first Goliath Ganger.
Worked on the base for the minotaur, and attached him.
The minotaur has now reached the point that it’s becoming a little bit of a grind, so I’m trying to paint in short bursts to stop myself rushing and pushing to completion…
I haven’t really done the painting I’d hoped to in my first week off, however, tonight I took the chance to block in the remaining areas of skin on the minotaur…
As I’m off for a fortnight, I wanted to take advantage of the free time to move some hobby projects along. As I’m focusing on technique and painting skill improvement with the minotaur, I wanted to have another project on the go that meant I could be a little looser with my approach, and be a little less worried about accuracy and detail. The perfect subject for this would be some terrain / scenery, where a looser style would actually work better for my purposes…
As per the last few days, I had a short 30-odd minute painting session after work between World Cup football matches.
Today’s focus was on adding some highlights to the minotaurs left bicep, particularly working on the inner side that faces the front of the model at this point.
