I painted a few more minis for my Nomads so I wanted to share. More to come shortly.
something with your blue paint is not right - it stand out how un even it is compared to oranges / reds and whites and yellows
good work on this nomads .. but this blue just is not on pare
That Iggy is absolutely Stunning!
They just look like they're drawing cut out of paper
Great stuff man. Love the crisp and clean finish on your minis. Your color scheme is vibrant and interesting.
Thanks for the kind words and feedback peeps, much obliged!
You're saying the execution is not done right, you mean on Kriza... yeah I was having a bit of trouble painting the exoskeleton suit with all
the shallow texture on it, I prolly was on the heavy side with the brush.
not only there - on 2 hackers to - this striped part of uniforms is just flat and it looks like a paint gotto big pigment particles so it applay like a sand paper
I think if you use a black wash it will fill in the cracks and solve the problem nicely.
on the subject of these surfaces made of hexagons and sleeves like a vacuum cleaner pipe. first, I would paint brightenings and shadows, not applying myself to a careful passage between the colors, then I would paint a black slit.the presence of these gaps and the breaking of the spaces into small elements will mask not very smooth transitions between shades. if you are in a hurry try the line accent color panel from tamiya. unfortunately it is a bit shiny so you have to cover it with matt varnish.You have done a great job painting these nomads.
I've looked at your work once again and I think you're too good for cheap tricks like the panel line tamiya!
Thanks for the suggestions guys and feedback. Looking back at that exosuit and I gotta say it isn't one of my best work.
That texture surface is a bit tricky to do. Maybe some kind of a wash but I was never a big fan of washes, every time
I washed something I wasn't satisfied with the result, but highlighting every little hexagon is really slow.
A small update. Tsyklon duo.
Really vibrant colors. I like it very much mate
love your work. its the orange base airbrush and then finished with brusj?
Thanks you two. Everything is done with a hairy brush except for priming which is spray can.
Your technique works very well with those tsyklon, beautiful !
Splendid miniatures. Crisp details and very smooth colour trasistiosns and orange/red is always tricky to paint.
Personally I'd change that lemon yellow on Grenzer though but there's no accounting for taste as they say.
Thank you, mate!
Yeah, your're right I don't like it either. I will repaint grenzer's helmet to white. At that time my scheme wasn't set in stone and
honestly I didn't know how to paint yellow properly. The yellow is a trade mark for Tunguska. Spektr will get yellow shoulders like Interventors and Kriza have.
a yes nice clean oranges
when yuo are going for NMM do not be afride of full black and just white areas thous are a parts of reflections ilusion - a not perfectly blended NMM but with correct placment of all blicks looks better then perfect smouth but with wrong placment ;)
