|Oh, man this canvas is a mess. My first attempt on this model did not work out the way I wanted. Which fortunately was a good thing because it allowed me to work on my airbrushing.|
JJ painting, this is an Eldar Crimson Hunter commission for Shawn. Will say off the bat that this model did not turn out the way I wanted. Which was both frustrating and grateful at the same time.
Funny thing about growing olde and garnering experience. What was once incomprehensible that someone can have more than one feeling at the same time has become a surprisingly familar. You learn, hopefully, that one can entertain and embrace opposite and complicated emotions in the same vein. Who knew that we earn more knowledge about ourselves and others from sadness than happiness? To purposefully misquote Oscar Wilde: Sadly youth is genuinely wasted on the young.
|Of all my expectations of the product I wasn't expecting it to pull paint off the model. Wade's voice goes through my head.|
|Parts of this model are going to look weird. That's because it was painted in stages in the beginning. For the second draft re-primed Army Painter Uniform Grey.|
|These turned out great. No way was I going redo them on the second draft. Vallejo white primer airbrush for base coat. Then Macragge Blue in airbrush form for the fade.|
|Remember preserve those tips.|
|Now for me to work on my airbrushing. This is inspired by Todd from his blog SincaiN40k. Thanks, Todd!|
|Fenris Grey made into airbrush form to highlight the Army Painter Uniform Grey parts.|
|Now for the product review. Liquid Frisket. Great stuff. Especially if you love the smell of ammonia.|
|With the frisket still drying sprayed the entire flyer with Macragge Blue made into airbrush form.|
|Then highlight with Lothern Blue airbrush over blue. Not quite the contrast I was looking for. Looks good.|
There are a lot of blooper pics coming. Stay tuned! What good are mistakes if you don't learn from them?
