Sunset

Hey,

with my second attempt in digital painting i was very satisfied.
As subject I have chosen a sunset because i painted a similar picture with oil paints about one year ago.
I hope you like it.

Quick WIP

Hey folks,

I just came back from an massive three day painting session weekend with good friends. :)  Here's some WIPS of what I've been painting.

I did an Austrian army conversion of Forged Monkey's "Knucklehead". A mustache and a beret always make a soldier badass. ;)


And I got a sculpt of Massive Voodoo's trainee Sanne, which is just so different and absolutely wonderful to paint. I just began to paint the skintones:


Apart from that I was sculpting for the Forged Hope Contest. But sorry, this is still top secret. ;)

Time for bed now...

Digital Painting - Twister

Hey,

a few days ago i startet with digital painting on my ipad mini.
My first steps in Procreate, the painting program i use, weren´t that good so i decided to
need some support. Today i bought the ebook version of Digital Painting Techniques that is a very good book in my opinion. After reading the first few pages about making your own brushes they started with the first step by step painting and i decided to test my skills. With the tips, written in the book, it was very simple to paint my first artwork.

TWISTER




hope you like it.

Zorabeth - WIP

Hi everybody!

After having not posted any new projects for a long time I want to show you my newest one. I started to paint Zorabeth from Andrea Miniatures during the last Massive Voodoo Painting Workshop in Vienna in June.
I decided to do something I thought I will never do...painting Non-Metallic-Metal. After painting almost all of the armour and the wings I can say one thing for sure: this needs a lot of patience and time! But for me the result is worth every minute.

Right now almost all of the armour is 80% finished. It still needs the final highlights as Roman showed me how much difference these highlights make. The cape has basic lights and shadows but there is still a lot of work to do. The skin of the horse is nearly finished. I'll wait until the other parts of the miniature are nearly finished too before I decide whether I still have to improve the painting of the skin of the horse or not.
All the other parts just have basic color but nothing else.

So here we go.
The horse:

I hope you like her!

A Greek and 3 Monkeys

posted by Androsch 

Hi!

It was a super happy hobby weekend for me, since I had the opportunity to meet theese guys at MassiveVoodoo in Augbsburg:

Myself and two monkeys

Well, a lot of things that happen in Augsburg, stay in Augsburg, but you can bet your ass that we had a lot of fun. :)

Roman and Raffa had some supercool grandmaster tips for me, I really never quit learning from them! True professionals, great friends!
Here's what I've been painting this weekend:

Greek Hoplite, 54mm

I used oils first and continued with acrylics.
A little strange to handle, but it does work.

The third monkey

still sime work to do, but I love this bust

Cheerio,
Androsch

Eldar Wraithknight

Hey there,

I finished another longtime project today. This Eldar Wraithlord was kind of a testground for oilpainiting. I did most of the green armour in oil, only touching up on the final highlights with acrylics. I had a lot of joy painting this, although it was totally annoying to highlight and shade all those little knobs that eldar fancy so much. ^^

Henrik Lundqvist - finished

Hey everybody!

We're back from a wonderful and exciting weekend in Germany at the Duke of Bavaria. The Pumpkin Painter Crew was quit successful since everyone got a medal :) Congratulations to you guys! And of course congratulations to all the other winners as well.

Just before the Duke I managed to finish Henrik Lundqvist and I want to show you the final pictures.
Enjoy!

 


A little explanation of the writing on his base:

The abbreviations are standing for the following stats:
GP - games played
W - wins
L - losses
OT - overtime/shootout losses
SO - shutouts
GAA - goals against average

Last season he was the fifth best goaltender in the NHL. He also got voted  into the second All-Star Team of the season.

I hope you like him!

Tribe Chief Morrow WIP

Hi!

Just started to work on Tribe Chief Morrow, a bust from Forged Monkey. I'm amazed by the great joy of painting this figure gives me. Extremely interesting face, all those little wrinkles are worked out well and make sense! Definately worth a buy! Take a look at Raffa's other great sculpts here: http://forgedmonkey.com/





Sorry for advertising here, but this one's really great!
