Charles' #thedailypaint

Post by Sarkastik » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:07 am

Well, after looking at all the models that I have unpainted, I figured that I would jump in on this too. Ive been in on this for the past week or so, and have been tweeting updates from @sarkastic87 and also been posting some pics on my blog (in sig below).

I'm going to try and update this thread daily, but pics may only come weekly..

And because I forgot to update yesterday:

Did some more work on my Deathmatch mini - Purity seals and most scrolls have been base-coated.

Thanks guys!

Well, last night I managed to get some more work done on my Deathmatch entry, Mostly some metallic details and the Hazard stripes but due to some... issues... i had to go back and re-do some work, so I didn't get quite as much done as I had wanted.

And, as promised, here are some pics!

And here are the "Issues" I was referring to. She has a habit of plopping her head down on my knee, and kept doing so, and bumping my arm, at the worst possible time.

Anyways, that is all for now. I am hoping to get some significant painting done this weekend, so hopefully Ill have more pics to put up.

Later!

Looking good! The chevrons are pretty tight, but the yellow still seems a bit thin. You might want to start with a brown underneath, and then built it up to that bright yellow. I use Tausepte Ochre...on just about everything ;)

That's how it works, right?

Haha that's it Mike! I remember back in the old days, where I actually had to put on 10 layers of browns and yellows for my Bad Moonz...
