Obviously i can't paint for s*** but.... it kinds feels like "I do airbrush shading!!". Immaculate work and a lot of smooth transitions but at the same tiem it lacks that feeling of reality, despite the mud etc.

It's just my paint style, high contrast and a bit of weathering :)

Looks better on the EC than ultrasmurfs, on whom it looks kind of like a render of a vehicle not a real vehicle. Obviously as I said they are exceptionally done, just not to my taste, which is of course just me.

I believe that I will show some miniatures painted for myself a bit different from those :)

Im gonna have to agree with the others, your stuff is great, but it has an over airbrushed feel to it, which is to say that they feel liked they have been airbrushed as far as its possible to to do for speed, i hate to say but as good as they are, they feel production line, im also not a fan of this airbrushed glow that seems to be getting slapped about on minis at the moment, its on everything, plasma,fire,lights and even on wolf eyes???

airbrushes are a great tool, i totally understand how they would be used in commission painting to make it viable to make money by speeding up the painting process, but i think their fast flat application of paint isnt ideal for giving miniatures character and "life".

im kinda getting a bit bored of the airbrushing trend thats snook into the hobby lately if im honest.

Now it's speed painting, soon you will see my works for myself. I believe that feeling of over-airbushing will disappear :)

Hello,

Probably you thought that I am dead or finished with painting. No, I just had a really busy semester at the university. Now I am back! Harlequin Troupe has been painted! Great miniatures, but they need a lot of time to paint them on pro level sadly I didn't have so much time :(What do you think about them?

















They are for sell: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121566510061

I really really really really want to like your work. Its clean. its precise and its good. But honestly. no life to any of it no sense of realism or imperfections which in my opinion make models more realistic as its closer to what occurs in life. nothing is perfect nothing is 100% symmetrical all the time. and thats what brings minis to life. You came close with the harlequins notably in the hair and on the checker board patterns but thats also it.
You are a very good painter. But you are not particularly standing out from a lot of other miniature painting services that are out there. I would hope you use the criticism to rethink and possibly think of ways to stand out instead of getting frustrated or upset.

Thank you for your opinion! I appreciate honest feedbacks :) I promise I will think about what you said.


Finally I finished to paint Tempestus Scions Army...























Of course it won't be mine :) :

It's definitely comic style with some realistic elements like weathering :) This time I used only airbrush for base coat:
