No I didn't. Have neck and back pain mainly and I had to deal with a numb arm this week from a random bug bite or allergic reaction. It was really weird. And thanks!~

For some reason, I cannot find which side that is. It looks fine to me, but I've been staring at this model for a while.

As you are facing it, the left, could be the light causing the tranisition to look rougher then it really does.

Really nice blendings on the clothing!
And I like that you show so many pictures.

Coming together nicely, arumichic! I don't have much to add on Inquisitor Hex at the moment. I think the cloak looks good and the blending is well executed on the cloak - it will be interesting to see how the miniature comes together when the armour is done and you start to paint the details.

I was thinking about the servitors, specifically the one covered in purity seals and "paperwork". The texts and iconography is nicely done (something I usually don't have patience for). But the paper/parchment itself isn't that convincing for me. It looks a tad to yellow for my taste, may I ask which combination of colours/washes you use on it? It's all personal preference in the end but I'm still curious.

So after a two week hiatus from having to do a sudden move to Mesquite, Nv from Tx and then working for a week in California, I FINALLY got internet today. Albeit it's a bit slow, but at least it works, right? I'll slowly be making my way back onto Heresy at some point and be painting a lot more since I'll have time and the energy to do it to. And the money to get more paints! I'm starting to run low!!!

Because of the sudden move, I have not been able to finish Hector, but he will still get done in the next two weeks or so as I start painting and start settling down some more. I did bring my paints and brushes unlike someone I know. *cough*djinn*cough* So look forward to more painting soon.

Thanks xeno. I'm still working on Rex since life got crazy and all.
The servitor's text stuffs is done with a micron pen. It helps so much. The parchment I actually kind of like, though for one of them, it did come out a little bit too dark and like Djinn's said (I think), looks more like vellum than parchment which isn't too bad. I did it with bleached blone (or vallejo equivalent of it) then washed it with sepia and then I think a second light coating of sepia and then badab black. How would you go about it?

I usually do parchments:
Denheb Stone
Devlan Mud Wash
Kommand Kakhi highlight (saving Bleached Bone for actual bone details, hehe)

If you feel like experimenting you could try to do:
Bleached Bone
Gryphonne Sepia
Devlan Mud

I find a lot of people put far to much trust into Badab Black. It's a nice wash but it carries a lot of issues with it for me when it comes to some colours and I think a lot of people tend to get locked in on one or two washes when they are all useful in their own way (specially the brown ones Gryphonne Sepia/Ogryn Flesh/Devland Mud).

Hahaha! I don't have pictures though and I haven't done much with him. I'm planning on starting him up again this week and try to have him done by the end of this week if not the first half of next week. So there'll be more soon I promise. I need to find a good way of storing and pulling out paints easily now though since there's a kitty in the house that apparently loves to chew on wires and investigate AFTER we've gone to bed. It's a scaredy cat ninja kitty.

Hmm...interesting way to go about it. I don't like Devlan Mud too much mainly because it leaves a grainy texture. Other than that though, I do know that different washes are useful in their own way. I'll try experimenting with it though. Thanks for the tips.

On a different note, as I'll be painting more often and need more money, do ppl think it would be okay for me to open up a commission type thing? As in my painting style and lvl. I know that it can improve and it will over more projects and such. I've been doing commissions for buddies for now and since we moved, that will be coming in to me and Drannith a bit less than it has been. Also since I'm close to Las Vegas, I was wondering if that would be a good customer base. Just let me know if I shouldn't.
Anywho, the next time I should be posting, I should be posting pictures of at least a half finished Rex.

Looking for work....

So I can't find my camera first of all. I know that I brought it, but not too sure. Another thing is that I don't have any lighting source whatsoever to take pictures, so my phone wouldn't do. The first layering of the gold is done, so as soon as I make a trip to the dollar store and get a desk lamp at the very least, there won't be pictures, but Rex will be done soon. Another like 2-3 layers of different golds will be done and if I'm not mistaken, he will be done! See you all soon!
