Default Commission: Lord Hector and retinue

So, I've been really, really bad and procrastinating horribly, especially with books distracting me. >.< I did finish a set of wings for a buddy of mine, so that was the extent of my work last week as well as what little I did on one of the little guys.

Anywho, so I thought it was time to update people on what I'm working on for commissions and it also keeps me more accountable to keep painting models.

I think I've also not been painting much on these guys, since I'm trying to employ a more layered approach...and it's becoming a bitch and a half. The little guy already has like 8-10 layers of 1 color... >.< So far, it looks decent enough. The roommate got a new lightsource for painting and modeling and so I stole it to take the pictures. And the light's bouncing off the already painted model, so a lot of the white spaces are actually light and not shoddy painting. >.<

I hope to at least have the one little guy done by this weekend with the layering approach to see how that looks like. I should be able to do at least that, right? As long as real life doesn't come bursting my bubble or kicking my arse.

That's it for now I guess. Hopefully more to come in the future. *crosses fingers*
Sorry there's not much progress on it yet. >.<

Mmmm, such great models, I need to paint mine as well! I wish you luck and encourage you to stay motivated!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Thanks DoE, really needed/needing that. >.< I'm pulling at my hair and bitching and moaning about the 100's of layers I'm putting on this little guy at the moment. Taking a break since my back hurts. The high lights are very very subtle as a result of the layers, but looking pretty good.

Sadly I'm not going to be doing anything too crazy with them since the guy wants them exactly as Forgeworld has them painted up (checkered pattern and all), I'm just not going to be using any washes of any sort and doing crazy amounts of layers and blending. *sigh* Oh, and Lord Hector will have an Inquisition "I" on the back of his cape. Hopefully it comes out well.

No, it's already primed with white. Guess it looks grey in the picture. >.< Maybe it's the lighting source, not really sure which/why.

I prefer black primer, personally, if i 'miss' or use a lesser coat, the black just shows through and becomes more like a shadow (so the crevices which are the most likely culprits of this, look fine)

but its looking decent so far, cant wait to see it done

I use black primer for certain things only because colors don't show through as well. Though I do understand your point. This white primer actually was really good and very thin. That made me very happy. And thanks Khainite. I'm looking forward to it being done as well. >.< I have a feeling I'm using wayyyyy too many layers at the moment. (of course they're crazy thin)

I usually use white primer so I can see all things I missed. models primed black will often have some kind of dark aura about them that whit ones dont. plus its far easier to paint red and yellow on the white.

but anyway, it looks real good! i'd love to see more!

failing to plan is planning to fail
