Re: My Work

Master Brown

A suggestion:

First, buy a cheap tripod from Ebay or even at your local pharamacist. Won't cost more than 10 dollars.

This means you can play with focus and lighting a lot easier. And see more details of the paint job.

You can also use cheap and cheerful photography tricks like putting a neutral coloured cloth behind the mini.

Re: My Work

Thanks, Master Gavin! I will look into this, but I am just putting up my work because I haven't done it in awhile.
When, I have a few small armies painted then I will focus on better photography. wink
Here is my last one for the day, M43(which is using the spear from the M44 and vise versa):

Nice work Jason!  That is exactly what I think an orc should look like!

Re: My Work

well it seems others paint orcs the same way I do smile exact same color smile I would have put darker color for the wolf pelt though, it's a bit too bright, unless it is ambiant light?

Nice work Jason smile

I can always change the color of the pelt. I am not sure which color though. I will see. hmm

Thanks for the compliments, guys.smile

Re: My Work

I just saw couple of days ago a TV- documentary about Yellowstone National park. The wolves there were absolutely more grey-ish !
And because yours is an evil one you should also put some black, too. Maybe, Jason you can try this.
PS: and don´t forget to shade the colors . . . wink

Re: My Work

Well, the fur of wolves (canis lupus) varies greatly depending on the species (there are over 30 subspecies known). There are whites, reds, grays and browns, with all its ranges and mixes. For example, this is the wolf that we have in Spain (canis lupus signatus):

I guess everyone can paint the wolf with the "nationals" colors.lol

Incidentally, Jason, I like your orcs and your new avatar wink

Re: My Work

Thank you , Erchamion for that fantastic excursion in the world of canis lupus. This forum is very multifarious !
Often you spend more time recherching how-to-paint-what as in painting . . .
And Jason: your Avatar is magnificent. Seems to be a section from the merp-book-cover "Riders of Rohan" ( what else . . . ) from the great Angus McBride.
I think he passed away some years ago, unfortunately . . . neutral

Re: My Work

Here's an example of multi-colored wolves.  When faced with the color/research issue, I was surprised to find so many hues in one member of the genus canis:/

Re: My Work

in fact, Master Kennakko, this wolve looks very natural. Great job. Especially the detail of that black part in the mouth.

Re: My Work

Well Ken, I can't paint like that! hmm
Give me some hints on how you do that.wink
Also, what kind of grass did you use for the base of the wolf? That really looks cool!

Well, Marshal of the Mark, clear pic and nice choise of colours. If you crop the pic it becomes bigger. Otherwise very nice!
