nice! gold from me.
Thank you so much!
Grazie… la strada è ancora molto lunga però, ne sono cosciente
What type of style are you going for on her? It seems perhaps more of an action figure type, than the painted display pieces usually up on P&P. The gradient of color on the glasses is a nice touch :)
I actually approached this piece (my first figure) thinking that painting the suit in a shiny color, given the large enough scale, would make the effect of the lights better. Obviously I was wrong :(, and now I’m trying to figure out how to make the transitions between lights and shadows with a brush (and maybe even with an airbrush). I hope to grow by observing your projects, which are all very fascinating.
For the glasses I simply played on the humid transition between clear orange and yellow, on a metallic base.
Congratulations on your first figure!! It is a very cleanly painted one, especially for a first one. I do understand the appeal of shiny gloss paint, but over time I’ve found that it doesn’t really work for most of the models I paint. It works great on things like model cars which are definitely a different genre, or perhaps areas I want to kinda look slimy (like monster drool, or fresh blood splatter). Worth trying to find out how you like it for sure!
Getting smooth transitions is a skill to practice, as is getting the placement of highlights right on a figure. It is one I have to work on all the time. Both regular brush and airbrush are great tools, and very different to use. I’d highly recommend Vince Venturella’s videos on Youtube as tutorials on different methods for getting the transitions between light and shadow (or other colors). He does a really nice job explaining methods, how to do it, what makes it useful or not useful.
Looking forward to seeing more of your painted work! :)
I started viewing Venturella’s videos, and found them very interesting and useful. Thank you for your tips…
