Default Showing off another smurf

Hey guys.
Got to work the other day and painted this one marine and I have to say i like him a ton. I used a new technique(to me) and I think I'm finally getting the hang of painting. Comments and suggestions always welcome!

Looks good, my only critique is not with the mini, but with the picture. Make sure you have a solid backgroud so we can clearly see the mini. other than that, good job.

Very clean work! w.e it is you do I like. BTW how to you get the black in the cracks so well? is that an ink? if so how do you get it in the crevices so well.

Cheers,

Well done, you're starting to make good progress. A few tips - paint the underneath of the shoulder pad trims gold or black, don't leave them blue and just watch when you get paint where it doesn't belong: you've got some blue on the base rim!

Nice!
I've only ever painted one full model and it came out looking like a kiddies show from the 41st millennium. It had so many bright colours that if it were a special character it would be called Captain Rainbow and it's special rule would be called 'Induce Epileptic Fit'... so, you're doing a hell of a lot better than me

But, again, nice. Very clean paint job, nice pose and I like the addition of a bayonet

~~DLK~~

EDIT: Oops, almost forgot. Have some rep

well basically i started with chaos black undercoat and with that i went over it very conservatively with very watered down ultramarine blue. 2:1 mixture of water to paint. this was repeated until the whole model was a nice solid blue. Then with badab black i coated the model taking care to leave a generous amount in all the recesses.after that i drybrushed blue and then went with a detail brush and applied badab black to all the recesses again in a very generous amount..

i didnt even notice the missing paint or the smudge until you pointed it out. I'll be fixing that right up.


Thanks for the positve response you guys!
