My Doom Paintings

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

Last summer I was painting some of my doom miniatures (from the original set). It takes quite a while to paint the things so I haven't finished all of them yet. I'm going to continue painting them after my exams. Also got the expansion of doom and I plan on painting those too. Anyhow I hope to get some opinions about the mini's because i would like to improve my skills. Oh and about the colors, I didn't copy the colors of the real doom game because i wanted to give my own fantasy a chance altough some of them have much in common. Gotta admit they aren't all that pretty (first mini's i've ever painted in my life :P).

MANCUBUS

one of my latest paintings, I made 2 of those and actually I'm quite proud of these ones. For me they are my best painted mini's.
I have put a lot of effort in painting the cables and getting some shades around. Also the head was difficult, but i think my other mancubus got a nicer head then this one :P

(hope i post the pictures the right way :P)

DEMON

this is one of my most early paintings. Not quite like the pink game monsters but i like this one better. With the blood I tried to create the look of fur on the demon. And then parts of the mechanic part coming trough.. These are quity nasty demons with lots of blood as you can see if the links work :P

Those look very, very nice for a first paintjob aplauso.gif

If you want to improve your technique, you can try experimenting with drybrushing and washes a bit, they add more depth to the miniature. A fairly good guide for drybrushing miniatures is

, washes are thinned out colors that flow into a mini's depression - use drybrushing with lighter colors and washing with darker colors to make the structure that's already in the mini really stand out. Generally, just paint ahead, and watch your results improve even more over time happy.gif

The Doom miniatures are partuclarly great for painting, as they have a fair amount of detail, allowing plenty of highlighting, without drowning you in fiddly bits.
