2 hours, seriously? Man, you´re killing me. This is a pro job unless you've really been in the painting hobby for a long time. Hats off in any case, you are truly talented.
What material do you use?
I wish 2 hours! Haha, no this was over 2 hours 'here and there' at a time over a week. When I had time for my own projects. I am indeed a full time commission painter for the last 11 years, and I'm not a fast one either. Thank you for the compliment, I wish I could knock out something like this in 2 hours!
very, very nice.
That's the first "high contrast highlighting" I've seen that looks really good.
What brush or brush substitute are you using to paint the eyes? Normally I would use a needle for these very tiny dots, but even a normal needle is too thick for that scale.
btw. he didn't say 2 hours, but "after a couple of hours at a time here and there over the last week". I'm still curious how much time it took you in total. Maybe you can give us some estimates?
Hi, thank you. For the eyes I use a regular old detail brush, in this case, the figure is very small so I used a smaller than normal brush, a Winsor and Newton Series 7 "Miniature" in size 00. I don't typically paint with the miniature versions of the Series 7 but they're good for this sort of detail once in awhile. They're practically made for it.
As far as time taken I'd say 6 to 8 hours. Would be longer had I done a base, would have been shorter had I not spent so much time on the fur and left out the freehand detail.
Why thank you
Ok! That's it!! ~ I am gonna start painting too!
Since you and a few others do amazing paintjobs on those pretty Descent miniatures, I cant stand the look of those grey, vanilla en red coloured miniatures anymore
Really amazing work!
Enjoying your work on Youtube also. If you made a vid of painting this Descent figure, I would be very interested to see it appear on your channel as wel.
Hey thanks! Ya know, I was thinking about this the other day. I should set up some time to paint the descent figures and show my process for these to help others looking for ideas and inspiration for painting their own sets. I can't promise anything because I have too many irons in the fire right now but I'm not going anywhere so this may be a thing down the line. I'd like it to be. Need more hours in the day!
