A sample of my work in painting

Well, as you know me (at least in photo), I now present you something of my work. Sorry for the photos, like others, I am not very good as a photographer roll

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Some nice stuff there Erchamion, please keep them coming - don't worry about the photography it will come eventually.

Perhaps if you do not have a close up facility on your camera you could try taking the photos from a bit further back. I'm still having some problems with a macro facility - the image keeps changing focus so even with that facility I will try and take photos from a greater distance in future.

And welcome to the 'club'.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

if you take a tripod and switch of the flashlight the pics might be darker overall, but you don't have the reflection of the light on the minis.


Where there is a will there is a way, just as there are no problems, only solutions! Guess it depends on ones own perspective of the matter at that time big_smile

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Bring the minis outside and find a spot which is illuminated, but isn't in direct sunlight.

Put the camera on a tripod, and use the timer.

Then spend an hour pulling your hair out to get one "pretty good" picture.

Ah, sounds like the voice of experience.  smile

Take heart.  It's hard to take a good picture.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Yes, I agree. It works really well in the late afternoon outside. I try to do that when I can, so the pictures come out really good.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

It took me two hours this afternoon to take some pics and then carrying them to this machine and then I found out that all of those 150 were miserable ... so I deleted them ... and by now I'm about joining my lazy cat in the sun .... alas ... she doesn't mind ...
I will consider to look for that good old Canon A-1 .... there also should be a macro lense FD 100/4.0 and the extension tube FD50 .... found three tripods by now .... no camera ... alas ... I'm afraid you'll need the old software for that ... no CP cards inside ... I wager that d****d machine also is in need of a battery ....
So for now, I simply give up ....

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Nice minis Erchamion, love those Dwarves!  And as everyone says, the photos will come.  A tripod and a timer is the hey, with a dash of patience and some nice lighting.  I like what you did with your Olog-hai - what's in the bag? wink.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

I am also glad that you like the dwarves.big_smile
He isn´t a Olog, he is a half troll commander M149. The bag contains the second head of the M145 "the Mouth of Sauron." If we recall, the figure M145 contains two heads (one normal and one with the helmet typical of Númenor). I used one as a trophy of the medium troll. cool
Certainly the bag I made my mother many years ago knitting lol

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Whoops - I was thinking about whether it was the Olog or the half-troll, but am a bit out of practise with Mithrils at the moment, and have only just started getting back in the zone.  Nice work with the head, that's pretty impressive stuff - although I'm not sure what your Mum would think of it wink.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Only twenty years!!! I stll hsven't finished mine yet lol.

Nice paint job anyway Erchamion wink. I had always intended to do this Balrog without wings, until the entombed Balrog came along (which I think size-wise is a lot more probable).

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Twenty years . . . ? How old was I then . . . ? What did happen then . . . ?
Anyway- the flames are amazing. Also the sword! And I like also your choice of the brown coulor. Well done.

Re: A sample of my work in painting

Well, I will tell you the story of this figure. In the early nineties I made a trip to Barcelona and I used to go to the shop so longed Juegos sin Fronteras. There I bought it and I liked it so much that I was "afraid" to paint because my technique was not very good. I waited to learn to paint better, I was assembled only figure in my cabinet, until ...... now.

Thanks to a project I have with a few friends (and I will tell you later) I have dared to paint now.

And, yes, of course each of we have a vision of the Balrog (something contaminated, if may say so, since we "saw" in the movies really). Always I had in my mind this character with these colors (red brown).

I'm glad you like it! smile

Re: A sample of my work in painting

i like it a lot -- also the color gradient on the sword, a nice break from the usual flame pattern that the majority uses.

Excellent use of colours, Master Erchamion. And yes, as it was pointed out before, the way you painted the sword really is something special - a brilliant idea.
