"Belegar, Dwarf Thain of the Fiery Forge Mountains"
Heroes and Villians Miniatures, 1/12

This bust was a great choice for a two day private coaching I was doing with Josua.
The topic of this coaching was "painting atmosphere" and to understand more about it.
Josua is a great painter and student and we had a lot of painting joy and a really cool time together.

I did not had a plan yet on how to paint mine, I just said to Josua: You'll choose your atmosphere and I do the opposite. Turned out to be a warm sorrounding on mine with cold lights hitting everywhere, not so easy as expected, but fun. On the other hand Josua painted a cold sorrounding with warm lights hitting from one angle only. It is a brilliant piece that he did, check it out here!

    It is nice when you decide to do something unexpected..There is some unwritten rule that it must turn our great, as this project of yours. I like that big difference between your and your student work. I love that skin on the fire one, and as I followed the progress I had been amazed by shield all this time, next to all ^^

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Yes, it was truely unexpected as I had no idea what Josua would do. Well, I learnt we miniature painters do paint cold sorroundings with warm lights much more often then the other way around. It really was a though thinking for the brain ... thank you, Aleksandra.
