Work in Progress

Realization of the coat of arms of a knight.

Posted by stephane42 on 25 Sep 2022, 20:28

Good morning all !!
I return to show the very slow and methodical work to make a knight with all its blazon.

I have already tried to do it entirely with paint but for some coats of arms, it was difficult or even very difficult and the result was not really up to what I wanted...

I tried another method which seems to me to give much more realistic results. Your turn to judge.
I show you one of the knights I made: the Duke of Brittany :-D

Here is the horse at the start...

I do the same with the rider...

And There you go! ;-)

Are they rub-down transfers or the water-slide type?

I would also be interested to know, Stephane. The effect you have achieved on this Duke of Brittany figure is outstanding! :yeah:

I think it's tremendous what you're doing to yourself. It's the great art of small painting. Someone should copy it first. Are your square eyes still okay? :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

Great result! from which manufacturer is the figure? I cant recognize it at the moment. Very good technique to achieve a thoroughly perfect finish!

Here is the last finished knight: Philippe, Duke of Orleans, son of the King of France, Saint Louis.
The first to enter the running for the Cambrai tournament of 1269.

This looks amazing.
Perhaps there is a transfer production business in your future?
Just WOW
