FM: Cursed City Undead Ogryns

by Roman aka jar

 Hey Jungle!

I painted up these two Cursed City Undead Ogryns during some private coaching lessons for explanation purposes. They are really cool miniatures by Games Workshop. Both turned out very different from eachother ...

Both are in private collection and sold already.
Thank you for your support in my art, passion and life.


If you are interested in my miniature art projects I got on sale, check:

And now for some detail photos of these two. Both were strongly painted in a certain ambience/atmosphere and one with true metallic metall, while the other was painted with the use of non metallic metal. Can you see it?


















Keep on happy painting!

Best Wishes,
Roman

Review: Skintone & Faces Masterclass

Hey Jungle,

finally it was time to teach this still brand new workshop concept again.
I only thaught it before the pandemic, once so far and it was my pleasure to teach it again as it is beautiful to see how it helps my students.

Thank you all for coming to Augsburg for the second time I was teaching this.
I was very nervous, but there was no need for it!

Skintones, there are many ...


Well, this workshop started from a wild point in my life. I was in the middle of a move again, studio and flat prepared for moving. I do not like to prepare seminars from this situation, but well ... life ...




During those two days,

we worked our way through plenty of theory behind skintones.
Practiced many things and tackled some test miniatures ...
















Next stage on day one was theory behind painting faces and we also tested this on ... well, guess what: some 28 mm heads ...










Day 2 started with leaving our test models behind us and advancing to a bust each student brought.
Two ways of approaching them with the newly made knowledge. One is a bit super advanced while the other one leaves more control ... I did an explanation how to sketch this face in 15 Minutes ... that is the wild way :D



And it was beautiful to see how my students followed, learned, overcome fear and attacked their busts with joy!
























I am a super proud teacher when I look at the results of my students from this really advanced content workshop. Everyone tackled the new wisdom from their own level and achieved results that showed me they understood the journey a skintone goes through. It was beautiful to guide you on this weekend!

Thank you all once again!

Keep on happy painting!
