Hi Folks
Just finished up Young Miniature´s Black Beard. Because I´m the older kind of painter I still uses oils and Humbrol. Feel free to comment

Regards
Larsa

Fantastic work!
Leather look super natural and face is life like. I also like faded colour of the jacket, although more vivid colour could be more eyecatching.

Thanks for sharing

Thank´s
Vivid colours, yes,I will have that in mind next time I´ll start something up. For the moment there´s a new bust from Yong´s on my bench. The Celt.


I send up pics off it when it´s finished if you like to see it.

Looks very nice so far. I like the flesh tones and I'm looking forward to seeing how you will do the fur painting...

I'm also using Humbrols and it is still the medium I feel most comfortable with. I guess we're just two old dinosaurs, Lars.

Grumpy old mens
I´ve been watching when a friend uses acrylics and must say it´s looking real good, but as long the still sells Humbrols I´ll stick with them..

The fur is started with abasecolour off Hu 110 and 33, mixed with some Burnt Umbre oils.I mixed in more black to the folds.I will not drybrush, so do not think "drybrush" the last part will be a painstaking session picking up each strand with diffrent brown and grey colours.

Thanks Jesper
I´m most impressed of the work and choise of colours the acrylic painters use.Living close t Roy here on the forum and seen him paint in acrylics. That´s just another world.Closing in to the fifties here and would try out the acrylics in my next life.
For the moment I´m trying to ruin the bust with a tattoo on the left arm/shoulder,

Just got these pics out of the camera.The tattoo is still wet and neded to see it with other eyes
So there´s till some satin varnish to add over the skinareas and the dagger left to paint. Going to alter the paint on the dagger so it would not look like the same as the tattoo.




Feel free to comment and give critics, so I can learn more.

Good work on the skin tones and I like the fur as well. The tattoo seem a bit strong, are you planning to subdue it somehow?

Yep, I´ll have too fix that, perhaps a thin was or filter with flesh tones over it. If I can´t get it rigth I always can repaint that shoulder and arm.

Very nice, Lars... you have a nice technique and I again, I like the subtle color transitions. However, I still feel the tattoos stand out a bit too much.

Good job,
Mario

Next one up is the Tinman from Patay.It´s a new thing for me with all this armour,chainmails ect. I used my airbrush and used Humbrols polished alu as basecolour.When dry I used polished steel as a fine filter over the alu. When this was semidry I scratched the surface with a tothpick.Finally I went over and shaded the amour with gunmetal, then again scratching the surface with the tool. So from here there´s just some small detals to paint in with the brush and offcourse the face and axe to complete.




comments and critics is always welcomme.

These are all great looking pieces, and it doesn't matter what paints or techniques you are using to paint them. You just use what you are comfortable with and works for you.

How are the Young Miniature's kits to work with by the way? They've always looked interesting, but I've never seen them in person.

Hi
The kits are wonderful to work on, you have some preparing to do before you can start to paint. The parts often has the mould plugs to remove, otherwise they are just heaven and I can´t stop getting them, so go for them they are recommended.

Laars,

for my money your shadow and highlighting is spot-on! I appreciate your use of colors. Quite life-like!

Oils and Humbrol? I have not been satisfied with my recent use of acrylics on my latest figures and am planning to use more oil now. Well done!

Why oils and Humbrols, I´m a an "oldschooler" and learned the Billhoran way Therefore I´ll use them, easy to get, no postorder and you'll have to mix the colours by yourself. But if you master acrylics witch I don´t,thats okej and in the long run it always ending up with just that satisfaction you mentioned.
