Some of my painted Heroes

Recommended Posts

Nice job!!

Regarding photography: When taking pics of my minis, I got also remembered that it is an artform by itself. Its not simple. There is a huge discussion out there how to approach miniature photography, various techniques, accessoirs etc. I am not an expert. I kept it simple and was reasonably happy with the results, after multiple takes:

  1. 2 light sources (regular table lamp), covered with parchment paper.
  2. Place them about 50-100 cm from the mini, from opposite sides.
  3. Place the mini on some (black) paper or whatsoever to have a neutral background
  4. Camara on "macro" mode.
  5. Zoom a little bit in, not too much, focus
  6. Trial and error -> you might need to try different angles, light positions, distance of camera to model. Note: The reflection of light from the mini shouldnt be visible on the photo, thats usually when lamps are too near.

Btw the pics you took are by no means bad - perhaps just too much light there. I guess the parchment paper could already solve this.

Hope that could help a little.

Thanks for the tips, the light on the minis side is from the sun from a window, lightsource from booth sides sounds like a good thing.

I know iam really bad painting eyes, so i mostly dont do it, but sometimes i do and the result is always very bad. (Serena is not completely done yet i have to do something about the eyes and im not done with the lighter parts on the sword).

Yeah, eyes are problematic, lol. Anyway, excellent job. Augur is totally awesome :)

The trick I remember for eyes was to paint a white line for each eye (as opposed to covering the eye area) & then paint a black dot in the centre (depending on focus) of the white line, preferably not leaving any white showing above or below the dot (unless you are going for a staring/shocked expression).

However, this was for minis just a touch larger than these, where you could actually see the eyeball! I look at some of theses minis with my old eyes & struggle to see the detail, let alone paint them!

Thanks for thé tip on eyepainting. I use several readingglasses in different strength, They work as a magnifier.
