Looking nice so far. What are your basing plans?
I vote Red Planet BASE! ;)
I second Red Planet BASE.
Whelp! Seems I'm basing them with red planet! The community has spoken!
Almost there buddy! Almost there! Now frame the photo so you only have the grey behind them (or crop) then tweak the levels slightly. (and clean your camera lens, that is why it looks all glowy/foggy).Then put the phone/camera down against a static object, and use the timer. Set it and walk away till it takes the photo. Repeat. Will come out much sharper and cleaner. Just saying this cause I can see all those beautiful details. Showcase them! :)Example of some tweaking with a shot given.http://imgur.com/wQkPol8
Thanks Greg! How are you such a nice damn dude!I'm gonna get there.. I'm just so impatient when I am happy with a paint job, I'm all "look at my shiny shiny!!!"
No worries buddy! I just like seeing work showcased for all the talent and time put into it!
I really like whats going on, have you run through the process yet? I can't find it but it looks like a simple base colour, wash and then just small highlights. Then it's the other details - the metal, damage, some small patina and the pretty effective OSL on the lenses that takes it from the mundane to the special. If it's that simple and quick then it;s definitel a technique I think I need to adopt, should I ever have another force that needs painting ;)
I haven't run through it yet, but its pretty much as you say aside from a few extra stages prior to base coat, but they are mostly using multiple spray cans for the undercoat and a wash of coelia greenshade.Oh you know you'll start another one!
They are looking fantastic!
Thanks man! I appreciated the OSL advice, it definitely looks better restricted to near the eyes
They look awesome Rob, well done!
Thanks Boss :)
I really like them. A great colour scheme.I also vote red planet. It will be a nice contrast against the blue/green
Cheers Naf :) I don't think I'll ever be able to paint "clean" like you do, but beat up and battered suits me well enough!I think red planet has definitely won the peoples heart!
