Re: Speed painting challenge

Looks Great Cap! I really like those Marauder Space Orks and the lively green you chose for his skin tone makes the best of the sculpt.

Cheers,

Blue

Re: Speed painting challenge

Great job on that ork. The skin looks very well done for such a small amount of time.

Although I hope when you say it 'all made sense' you're referring to the speed painting challenge and not MC Hammer pants. Backwards baggy trousers will always remain wrong on many, many levels...

The skin was just your basic warboss green, two coats of thin green wash, then highlight with warboss green, adding small amounts of yellow each successive highlight for maybe three layers, aiming for the highest points to give that 'zenithal' sort of effect. And you're done :)

As for the hammerpants they will never stop being relevant to today's society.

Re: Speed painting challenge

Well done Captain ! I have to say you were the sparkle that ignited my motivation for this so I gave it a go with a cyber samourai donated by Cheetor/Sho3box :

Finished in exactly 60 minutes, I really thought I would snap when at the very end it took me 20 seconds to find my mithril silver for the final highlights :shock:

Re: Speed painting challenge

Looks great, and the back is even better, as I saw on your blog!

Re: Speed painting challenge

You guys make me weep. So much greatness in just one hour. Maybe I will give it a try too today, but I doubt I can compete.

Re: Speed painting challenge

Honestly, I think the 1 hour limit is way too small, 2 hours would be good to do something quick but with enough details and care. I think I could have made a completely different looking model in 2 hours, I would have used a smaller brush and I would have blended the highlights better (or maybe I just need to learn how to blend them well enough).
Anyway, considering the level some people reach in an hour (or under like Colin), I realise there's stil plenty of room for improvment...

Re: Speed painting challenge

I think you're being way too critical of the end product, as the ninja looks flippin' great (and the back is even better). Sure, when looked at in a close up photo you'll inevitability see areas you'd like to improve (not that I can) but on the tabletop they're likely to look identical to your very high 'normal' standard.

If I've learnt anything from doing this it was that I spend too long painting single figures and that an hour is probably enough to get that '80%' finish; I'd normally tinker around for another couple of hours to get to 95%. Net result, a load of half finished projects.

I did chuckle at the toilet advice. I think the challenge rules should at least allow the clock to be stopped for a call of nature (or act of god!).

Re: Speed painting challenge

I see your point and totally agree with the efficiency thing of getting to the 80% point to finish things. The only thing is I need to conciliate the way I like to paint and the way I want my models to look ^^.

I wouldn't agree toilet pauses as they could be a way to get the stress off :ugeek: this has to be a commitment...
