Some shiny Grey Knights and tile floors...

It's always fun to run across some long lost images that were never even processed... getting lost in the shuffle among the many thousands which have been taken :-)  The shiny Grey Knights were always a favorite of mine, since it gave me the chance to do some reflections of my marble tile bases!

It can be a little tricky, but the end result is always rewarding!

Most of the work is in setting up the reflections, meaning that you have to create enough lights and shadows on the portions which don't reflect anything in order to get the necessary contrast.

Also, just like water reflections, it is important to remember that the reflection colors are always a bit darker and more greyed down that the original surface that you are reflecting.

More later!!!


  1. One word, just "WoW!"
    Really impressive works,i'm fan of your NMM. And the groud reflection on the energetic armor is just amazing!
    you're my master James :p
    (ps: with the new codex and models, it's possible you paint some Dark Angels in a few days? month?)
    ps2: really sorry for my english

    1. I might be doing some of the new DA stuff later in the year :-)

      Many thanks for the kind words!!!

  2. Are you fething kidding me? Christ, dude, you're brilliant! First time seeing your stuff (I was at Adepticon '12 and somehow missed your GKs!). Inspiring. I wondered what I was going to do with my day off... I think I'll paint. Thanks for the awesome images.
