  • 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...

          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

                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;)...

                        hey WAMPers...


                        here is the next stage of the helmet...
                        this is the same as the second layer on the wings, an equal mix of P3 Greatcoat Grey and P3 Underbelly Blue...
                        it still resembles bare plastic more than anything, but you can start to see the shadows a bit...






                        i've also started in on the decorations and gear on the body...
                        first everything was picked out with a coat of P3 Thamar Black...
                        the soft armor bits around the joints get a first highlight of Greatcoat Grey...
                        the glass vials and the tubes get a coat of P3 Gnarls Green, as do some of the lights, and the screen on the little data slate...
                        the metal parts of the vials get a coat of P3 Pig Iron...
                        the keys of the data slate get a base of Greatcoat Grey, while any little lights that will be red, as well as the blood drops, get a coat of P3 Sanguine Base...
                        the pouch gets a first highlight of P3 Coal Black...
                        finally, the parts that will be gold get a base of P3 Battlefield Brown...








                        thanks for looking...
                        i hope you are enjoying yourselves;)...

                          hey WAMPers...


                          i've built up the reds on the sword arm...
                          now it's on the the rest of the details of the arm...






                          i also blacked out the bits of the helm that won't be white...
                          i'm thinking green lenses, black wings, and of course, a red helix...

                            hey WAMPers...


                            i got the next layer of the helmet done...
                            instead of jumping straight to P3 Underbelly Blue, like i was thinking, i went for one more mix to help with the transition on such big curves of the helmet...
                            this is a mix of P3 Greatcoat Grey and Underbelly Blue, in a 1-4 ratio...
                            this will help the pure Underbelly Blue of the next step, and the white mixes of the stages after, to be a little less harsh...





                            i also got the next stages of the sword arm's parts painted...
                            anything that will be gold got a 1-1 mix of P3 Battlefield Brown and P3 Rhulic Gold...
                            the sword handle and wax seals got a layer of pure P3 Sanguine Highlight...
                            the paper of the purity seals got a layer of P3 Gun Corps Brown, and the wings got the same mix as the ones for the backpack, 1-1 Greatcoat Grey and Underbelly Blue...

                              here is the next layer on the helmet...
                              this time it is pure P3 Underbelly blue...
                              the shadows are finally starting to show...






                              the next stages of the sword arm are about the halfway point...
                              the wings are pure Underbelly Blue...
                              the gold is pure P3 Rhulic Gold...
                              the parchment is pure P3 Menoth White Base...
                              the wax seals, and sword handle, got a wash of pure P3 Flesh Wash (not thinned) for shadows, and then were touched up again with pure P3 Sanguine Highlight...






                              thanks for looking...
                              i hope you are all still with me;)...
