    JAHminis: "...and now I'm making your silver pants blue."

    hey WAMPers...


    i guess it's about time to start a WIP log here...
    it's only taken 8 years to get over my shyness of posting work in progress, but since i started an Artist page over Facebook where i post a daily update, i figure i might as well be sharing them on the forums, too...


    if you want to check out what i have been up to for the last two months on the Facebook page, it's here:


    https://www.facebook.com/jahminis


    most of the work here will be commissions, a little bit of studio work, and the occasional piece painted for sale on eBay...


    right now i am working on a pair of commissions for a guy in France...
    it is a Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest, and another plastic version of Commander Dante, both built from the Sanguinary Guard box...


    i'm starting with the body of the Sang. Priest:


    this time i'm trying a little experiment with grey primer instead of black...



    the basecoat for my red is P3 Sanguine Base...



    next i mixed up a heavy wash of equal parts Sanguine Base, P3 Coal Black, and P3 Armor Wash...
    in this photo you can see where i came back and painted half of the body again with the base color...



    after i reapplied the Sanguine Base to the whole body, i started building up my red...
    this is a mix of the SB with P3 Khador Red Base at a 2-1 ratio...



    the next stages are layers of the same SB plus KRB in ratios of 1-1, and 1-2...





    carrying on with more layers, there is a mix of SB plus KRB at a 1-4 ratio, and then a layer of pure Khador Red Base (this mostly shows on the legs here)...






    i'm also playing around with a Vindicare Assassin that will be for sale when he's finished...





    that's all for today...


    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like the WIP's...


    cheers

    hey WAMPers...


    another update on the Sanguinary Priest...


    i got the pure P3 Khador Red Base done...
    now the large areas of shadow really stand out, but i still need to come back in and paint some small shadows in strategic locations...
    after that, i can get started on the fine highlights:)...








    next up i'll show a bit of the work on the wings...


    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him, so far...


    cheers

    Woah! That's a lot of layers!

    Results look good though :D Thanks for posting.
    I'll be lucky to paint a single figure this year or any other. If I do manage it, no one will be more shocked than I.

    thanks, David...
    it is a lot of layers!!!
    my style is not fast, but it is precise;)...


    time for a few shots of the wings for the Sanguinary Priest...


    this is over grey primer again...
    base coat of P3 Sanguine Base for the armored bit, and P3 Greatcoat Grey for the feathers...



    i built up the armor using the same stages of red as the body...
    i started layering up the white wings with a 1-1 mix of Greatcoat Grey and P3 Underbelly Blue...



    here is a sneak peek at the next stage, building up the feathers with a pure coat of Underbelly Blue...



    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like it, so far...


    cheers

    hey WAMPers...


    here is stage 3 on the feathers...
    a layer of pure P3 Underbelly Blue...





    the tedious work is done...
    next is the fun part, highlights, and maybe a little (very thinned) wash to shade...


    thanks for looking...


    cheers

    hey WAMPers...


    here's what i have, so far, and a bit of recap...


    red:
    grey primer...
    pure P3 Sanguine Base basecoat...
    a heavy wash of a 1-1-1 mix of P3 Armor Wash, P3 Coal Black, and Sanguine Base...
    reapply the Sanguine Base, leaving the deepest shadows from the wash...
    a layer of Sanguine Base and P3 Khador Red Base at a 2-1 ratio...
    a 1-1 layer of SB and KRB...
    a 1-2 layer of the same, and then a 1-4 layer of the same...
    a layer of pure KRB...


    feathers:
    grey primer
    P3 Greatcoat Grey for the basecoat...
    a layer of Greatcoat Grey and P3 Underbelly Blue at 1-1...
    a layer of pure UB...






    there is a lot more to do on these parts, but i'm going to start on the white helm, and the red sword arm, first...


    thanks for looking...
    i hope the step-by-step is helpful...


    cheers

    missed this thread somehow. looking good so far. Are you hilghliting the wings further?

    yeah, everything will still be highlighted further...
    right now i'm at the midtone on pretty much all the parts i've shown...
    i just moved on from the wings and body for a bit of variety...

    i still have to sculpt a Chalice in hand of the left arm, and do a bit of clean-up on the jump pack conversion, and then i'll slap some paiint on those bits, too...
    i've also yet to build a base for this guy, so plenty more to come...

    cheers

    hey WAMPers...


    here is the start of a couple of the other pieces of the Sanguinary Priest...
    the power sword arm has the basecoats down...
    the blade has a coat of P3 Thamar Black...
    the armor and wax seals have a basecoat of P3 Sanguine base...
    the wings are P3 Greatcoat Grey, while the purity seals, and anything that will be gold, have a basecoat of P3 Battlefield Brown...






    the helmet is also basecoated with Greatcoat Grey...
    i can't believe how much work has gone into making it look exactly the same as it did on the sprue...
    same color, basically, just sans moldlines, and ready to take some paint, as I build up to white...
    i will be using the same recipe as the wings, so that it matches the slight blue tinge on the feathers...





    thanks for looking, and taking the time to comment;)...


    cheers
