JesusMcCoy's #Thedailypaint

Post by JesusMcCoy » Thu Aug 09, 2012 1:34 pm

Hope it's not too late for me to join in, it seems like everyone is here.
Anyway, today what I'm going to do after I finish this post is paint the pants of 10 Guardsmen, maybe start on the armour.
Hopefully I'll get pics up later, if my sister lets me use her camera, because she has the only good one in the house.
I do suppose I'd better stop talking (typing?) and start painting, if I want to complete my goal.

Hey guys,
I went outside to prime my Guardsmen, and then it started raining. I did however have a Sergeant who was already primed, and so I finished him. Here are some pics. The first one is okay, but the rest are slightly blurred, my apologies, I'll fix that tomorrow, right now I'm tired... and Star Trek is on :D

I think I'll redo the eyes, but I'm pretty happy with him, he shall not be dunked in Simple Green.
Anyways, I'll be painting again tomorrow, maybe the weather will clear up and I will be able to prime the rest of my Guardsmen.
Oh, a little sidenote here: What do you think his name should be. I've got my two Command Sqauds, and three other Infantry Squads already named, but I don't know what I should name the men of my fourth Infantry Squad. Lemme know.

Welcome a board and hopefully this thread will encourage you to paint more and push you to try new things and become a better painter.

Nice job on the guardsman, good colours and use of washes.

I agree that the eyes need redoing. When doing eyes you want to do them a bit bigger so that their is no white on the top or bottom. the white should just be on the sides. It shouldnt be a perfect circle, that is what gives it that stunned/drugged out look hehe. This will likely cause the black to go over onto the eyelids and eye socket so you will then need to fix this up with flesh moving across the eye to give it back its eye shape.

Thanks for the tips on the eyes, every time I've tried to do eyes, it's turned out like that. I'll try your technique, but in the end, I'll need to practice... a lot.
Anyways, time to catch some sleep... I didn't get much last night, and if I want to prime and paint my Guardsmen, I'll actually need to be awake.

Hey everyone,
Today, I'm working on more Guardsmen! I got them primed in the morning so now all I have to do is paint them... all 50 of them...
Whatever, I'll take my time. I'll try and update again with some better photos tonight or tomorrow morning, I'm hoping to finish 1 squad of Guardsmen by then. (Counting Sergeant Crazy Eyes :P) Speaking of him, I intend to fix his eyes... eventually. Now if you'll excuse me, it's off to my room to paint!
Thanks for the replies and encouragement everyone and I'll see you later.

EDIT: Hello again, it's looking like pics will be tomorrow, my sister is gone until then, and I have no clue where she put the camera.
On the bright side, I got 6 Guardsmen almost completely done (Only have boots and Imperial Eagle thingies left to paint, they would be done but the Vox-Caster takes forever to paint). I swear I will get pics up tomorrow, no matter the cost!

for the eyes, think of them like people's eye... I mean, how often do you see people staring white their eye wide open with the white all around the black part clearly visible? just paint a black dot with white on either side :P

Hey everyone, pics will have to wait another day, my sister can't find the cable and is blaming me for it :roll:
Whatever, got another Guardsmen done today, but most of today was spent at a friends house.
Pics will be up, soon, assuming I can find the cable. Sorry for the wait, but at the very least, there will be a lot of Guardsmen in the pics.

Welcome to the daily paint but you need to keep it up becauses ole little timmy down the street has got a higher kill count with his necrons, and that is just not acceptable to the commisar, so keep it up.


and here's some painting advice
If you ever need help. Anything is possiable with popsicle.
Or was it you can always find help on MWG?

No, it was anything is possiable with popsicle.


but really keep up the good work. Now I have to go salvage what's left of my creeperfide house.

Hey all,

Sorry for the hiatus, but I've been busy working on my school's Summer Reading (sigh). I quite literally woke up Sunday morning and realized 'Oh crap, I have 3 books to read in 2 weeks, and I have to write notes on them... and I have a test on them'. So yeah, I haven't done much other than reading and pretty much no painting. So now I owe 7 models lovely.
On the bright side I popped by Micheals (A lovely art store) and bought some new brushes and sculpting tools for my current project. For those of you who don't know, my new project is to convert a Guardsman into this:
Image
So yeah... I hope sculpting counts for doing something, or else I'm screwed.
Anyways, I do suppose I should get started on the Guardsman conversion. Wish me luck, or give me Fluffy's skill with Greenstuff... either one will do :D

@Countryrobin
I like popsicles... and MWG so we're good :P
And of course, I will answer to the Comissar because if I don't he'll shoot me because I have leadership 10 : :roll:

EDIT: Hello everyone! Two things to say before I go and read more Summer Reading books *sigh*:
1- My friend bugged out of the Dark Age of Technology Guardsman project, so it's a no go. Looks like I'll have to stick with regular Guardsman for now.
2- My camera is being stupid, and decided to run out of battery while I was trying to take pics of my work today. It's charging now, I'll see if I can get some pics up tomorrow. I didn't finish a model today, but I got some work done on the Platoon Standard Bearer (Not happy with the banner, I'm probably going to redo it) and on my Astropath.

Until tomorrow

I officially give up on trying to get pics up for this week. My damn camera is so stubborn and stupid that I'm left speechless. Uggh.
Now that I have that out of my system, I do suppose it's worth mentioning that I got the fatigues done on ten Guardsman today. So I still made some progress. I won't be able to update tomorrow, until Sunday as I'm away and I don't know what time I'll be back at. So yeah, hopefully by then the camera will cooperate. Resistance is futile. Anyways see you guys Sunday or Monday.

Hello again
Well I got back and now I have more models I must do to break even... crap.
I worked a bit on a Tau commission I'm doing for a friend today, but apart from that, not much has happened since Wednesday. Oh well. Tomorrow apart from reading the Catcher in the Rye and finishing my notes on Lullabies for Little Criminals (Which is a terrible book IMHO), I will be painting some Fire Warriors, some Guardsman a Tau Commander (In a Battlesuit :D) and of course a Platoon Command Squad. After all Guardsman suck without men to lead to them.

Starting Wednesday-ish, I'm going to be going Dwarf Crazy as I have 400 points to paint for September 8th. Luckily 250 of those points are War Machines and Crew, but I still have 10 Thunderers and some Dwarf Warriors.

Anyways, I'm going to go check on my camera and see if it is done being possessed now, and maybe then I can put some pictures up.

Woot! Done all the notes I have to do for today, so it's off to paint!
I'll update later, but it'll probably be guardsman, because I feel like it!
