  3. Unsolicited Review: Pop Sculpture

    Hello all! I just got this book Pop Sculpture; how to create action figures and collectible statues the other day and thought I'd share it with you and my thoughts on it. I had read about in in Amazing Figure Modeller and when I had to go on Amazon to get some of my textbooks, I thought it was a good excuse to throw this in there too.
    First off, when I looked on the cover's spine I was a bit hesitant- Watson-Guptill books that I've bought in the past have been hit or miss, with emphasis ...
  4. Day Four

    I'm having problems properly formatting this post at this time. Will go back and edit it later. Well today I spent some time to paint the cloak on an Idrian Skirmisher. I'll list the paints and proportions I used for this: Deep Shadow: 1:1 Black, Royal Purple Shadow: 1:2 Black, Royal Purple (This is to help mitigate the dominance of black) Basecoat: Royal Purple Low Highlight: 1:1 Purple, Ultramarine (Possibly part of my problem described later) High Highlight: 1:2 Purple, Ultramarine ...

  5. Day Three

    This post is late like the one before it. Really late. I thought about combining day three and four, but I think I have enough to write day three as its own post.

    Goals
    Again didn't get much painting in, due to work and etc. but I did contemplate my short/long term goals, and I think it would be a good exercise to do so. So without further ado:

    I would like to be a good painter. I'm going to measure my progress as follows:
    Can I achieve smooth transitions for ...

  7. I am back soon! :D

  8. Day Two

    Alas, I didn't get much painting done between spending time with my girlfriend, and actually playing Warmachine. But as I was painting I kept thinking that I should be able to fit five shades from light to dark. As it stood I could fit two maybe three tops. I vowed to be more careful, and so I made sure I wiped off the appropriate amount of paint touched the tip of my brush to the mini and carefully dragged out the thinnest line I could produce. Unfortunately instead of the thin controlled line ...
  9. Dig Deep Marine!

    Gaah! Just had one of those paint session that completely fails to satisfy...you know the one? Just couldn't get my eye to focus in and my brain to engage with what I was doing. Essentially I was suffering a sort of Brechtian Alienation from the Scout Squad I was painting.

    Now, as much as I like the miniatures, the ones with the cloaks and sniper rifles, they were picked more out of a sense of requiring an additional cheap troop choice for my DA army. So the squad, born out of necessity ...
  10. Day One

    Hello there,
    So I'm attempting to improve as a painter and I've decided that it'd be a good idea to keep a written account of issues I'm tackling, techniques I'm working on, and the like. Maybe I'll get some pictures that don't look horrific (I'm doubtful but ah well). I don't suspect anyone will read this, but I feel it'll be a good exercise.

    I can do basic base coat, shadow, highlight, and make a table top quality piece. But I ...
