Painting Report - December 2020

Posted by XbriX on 10 Jan 2021, 12:16

Happy new year everybody!

As some of you may already know I am an extremely slow painter, there is no way I would be able to pull off more than a few miniatures a month. Furthermore I am easily distracted, and am constantly jumping between different periods. So I came to a conclusion that I need to change my posting schedule. I really don't want to spam Bennos or the Blog with like two or three figures (each from different period/theme) every two weeks. So here comes the first monthly (hopefully) painting report. That way I don't need to create five different topics each with two photos of a single miniature.


Sorry for a long introduction, here come five figures I painted in December:

Enjoy!

Hi Jacob! Your painting is always very good, and in particular, the faces of your figures are impressive.

May I say that your pictures would be much better with more light ? And the white background doesn't help your camera :) So, if you have time, the same minis with a darker background and two spotlights, one on each side, you should get a better result.

Improved photos are a lot better. Much clearer and shows off your brush work much better. Great job.

Good work. The German WW2 camo is particularly nice.

Very nice figures! And I am very happy that the mods don't demand a report from me. I'm even slower!
