hi guys! long time no see^^

 

 



Wow those are nice builds, how did you get the orange that..... orange? 

 

oups, sorry for the late answer :/

thanks to begin with!

for the orange, it's a "flamboyant orange" base, with some "solar yellow" glaze and a touch of "yellow moon"

 

 

here the rest of my summer painting

do you guys have some idea for the loin cloth? I don't want to put a map on it, but I don't know what to put on it...

Looking da part :cheers  - don't think I'd go too overboard with the loincloth on yer kaptin, maybe some zigzag stripes in your yellowy orange paint :?

More like the stripes that the one on the left has got but they do look a bit fussy (of course, finger painting them in MS Paint didn't do it any favours), a Deff Skullz glyph works well but I'm thinking he's probs Bad Moon

Could do a simpler version or a background for one of GWs' transfers or maybe look for a freebootaz one  :?

i second badfang.

stripes like the trousers of his crew could fit.

my second choice would be the last of your pic with the black flames. but not with a yellow but with an orange base.


In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

really enjoying the use of colour and the blending going on here!  The blue to purple hues works well :)

thanks for your opinions guys. I'll try for a freeboota'z glyph not a deathskull as you said, and not really badmoon either

perhaps a mix with the strip+flam and a glyph...

 

well, I'll work something out of all of this^^

 

Thanks Snarknit Grokguzz :)

Have you put the head on it yet? Asking because if there's too much going on around the bottom of the model it could detract from his face which has painted up really well :?

Looks excellent  :thumbs I think I'd bottle out at what you've got - maybe if it was 1:1 scale you'd be able to get away with more on the front but at the scale you're dealing with it'd be very easy to overcook it, if you're really desperate to do more to it then maybe light, thin stripes (or something) on the coat which wouldn't distract from the face might be the way to go but I'd be happy to call it done as is  :cheers

Thanks Badfang!

 

so I made up my mind, I painted 2 grot bastos instead of retouching the boss! hukhuk

on my Gimp test the loincloth was not less conspicuous, so I preferred to keep it as it was
so the finish kaptin and his grot

I would be more careful at the focal point on my next HQ!
