While I'm by no means a celebrity on these boards, I thought I'd give folks a little update on my work bench. I've been busy with lots of stuff, including a summer job, 2D art, friends, and some personal ventures into writing up a game system (though it'll probably never be finished). I have done some painting, though, and have been experimenting with some new tricks. Unfortunately, my photography still sucks. Anyways, first up is my DA Brood:
Old entry into the Khubla painting contest of '07
Unleash the hounds!
The good looking Ratchet
Heavyweight Champion of the World
Again, sorry about the shoddy camera work, the colors have been rather washed out.
Next up was an experiment in light and shadow. Though it's hard to tell from the picture, this miniature doesn't have one drop of black paint on it 'cept for the rim of the base. The shadows are entirely purple. I've used just a bit of yellow for all the highlights for a somewhat counter-shaded effect.
Next up I tried to immitate Wayne Reynolds' beautiful artwork in miniature. For those who don't know, Mr. Reynolds does work for Wizards, and did all the 4th Edition cover art. This ws WIP when I photographed it, but has since been finished.
All surfaces have been blended from black to whatever their color to near-white, with some slight adjustments.
