Raging Brunhilde

This represented the last of the 'standard' painting videos.  After this one, it was about more 'exotic' materials such as the powdered pigments and so on.

One last time... a row of paint jars!

This was one of the larger arrays of colors on the palette.

Another color sketch!  Trying to illustrate how gold is the most reflective of the non-chrome NMM's.

The much more complicated Shaded Basecoat.

And then many rounds of glazing.

And tinting, and shading.

Colors back out onto the palette.  Sometimes I really like this stage, because it is the time that I mix regular paint with my glaze colors.

Just about there!

Here she is... Miss Konisgmark

I will continue to do some more 'finish' work on this figure, since that is going to take at least another 3 hours...

Then she will really match the standard bearer version!

Hiding in plain sight

With the help of some Urban Warfare Viridians, it was time to do some camo!I

I started off with the desert camouflage scheme.

Prior to the glazing phase... keeping all the colors in line, so that even the wargear didn't stand out too much.

Glazing time!

I set him on the base that had been prepared (I show how to make these in one of the basing videos).

Then the jungle sniper.

Some of the colors from the desert camouflage came back a second time, this time to make sure there was enough variety in the greens.

Time to glaze again!

He now looks sufficiently green!

Ah yes, the narrow slit that I get to look through to see the palette!  I looked forward to NOT having to contort myself more and more as the video shoots went on...

A slight change to the pattern from the desert camouflage... more like branches filled with leaves.

I had a base set up for the jungle sniper as well.
