Review: Private Coaching with Daniel

by Roman aka jar


Hello Jungle,
today it is time for another private coaching review.

This time I met Daniel from Germany. So far we both did not have had the chance to meet up and I was surprised on the topic we both decided as Daniel so far did not visit my beginner's class. I was not scared at all to go in depth about ambience and atmosphere with him when I saw the spark of painting joy in his eyes early that morning.


Daniel & Roman

What a beautiful day to start painting! So blue!

Theory in the process ...

What Daniel has to say about the coaching (english):

"I could take the time today to say thank you again for the two wonderful days." Looking back at the coaching session our talks were almost as important as the painting techniques. I was taught a Jedi view of miniature painting. Now also started on vacation with a sketchbook to attribute my ideas and sketches within and to experiment with compositions on paper. Thanks for that. Please keep your open and inspiring nature for your coachings. You have an invaluable feeling for your students and that makes you such a good teacher. Now enjoy the hike with your father and let me know you will find the lost legions. I'm not going to call you "Master" as a graduate but better call me your "Padawan". See you in next year at one of your workshops for sure."
- Daniel



What Daniel has to say about the coaching (german):

"Ich konnte mir heute mal die Zeit nehmen um dir zu schreiben und mich nochmal für die zwei wundervollen Tage zu bedanken. Ich habe bei dem Coaching soviel mitgenommen und mein Kopf raucht vor voller neuen Ideen und Projekten in welchen ich das Gelernte anwenden möchte. Aber was fast noch wichtiger ist als die Techniken die du mir beigebracht hast, ist eine Jedi-Sicht auf das Miniaturbemalen. Ich werde jetzt noch die zwei Aufträge beenden die ich habe und mich danach nur auf persönliche Projekte konzentrieren. Mit der Zeit, Liebe und Aufwand die diese Projekte verdienen.

Habe jetzt auch in Urlaub mit einem Sketchbook angefangen meine Ideen und Skizzen nieder zuschreiben und mit Kompositionen auf Papier zu experimentieren. Danke dafür. Behalte bitte für deine Coachings deine offene und inspirierende Art bei. Du hast ein unschätzbar gutes Gefühl für deine Schüler und das macht dich glaub ich auch zu so einen guten Lehrer. Genieß nun die Wanderung mit deinem Vater und lass mich wissen falls ihr die Legion findet. Ich werde dich als Abschluss nicht "Meister" nenne aber mich vllt besser als deinen Padawan bezeichnen. Wir sehen uns sicherlich nächstes Jahr auf einen deiner Workshops wieder."


- Daniel

These studio sunsets ...

At the end of our first day we decided to enjoy some sunrays and a cold beer just around the corner.

Daniel's result is not a finished miniature after these two days. This rarely happens. Daniel picked a cool bust by Black Sailors and he learned tons on how to implement atmosphere, painting techniques and a good flowing work order.




I can not wait to see him continue with this piece!
Keep on happy painting, Daniel!

Blood Angel & Salamander Primaris

by Roman aka jar

Hi Jungle,

time to roll things up from the last couple of weeks, while we showed you only MV Challenge entries. In the meantime, Roman and Josua are busy judging. So, let's get it on - slowly - with some finished projects.

First one is a Space Marine Primaris, converted to a Salamder Marine. I am having quite the fun nowadays to work with the new primaris sprues. Always a fan of Space Marines and mucho in love with the new ones. There will be even a full one day painting class only focusing on painting Space Marines with me where I let you know all my tricks and tips.


Salamander Space Marine Primaris
Games Workshop, 32 mm


















This figure is not for sale anymore.

It was sold recently to a private collector and he said:


"I Got mail today! What a great piece! I love it!"


And another Primaris was finished too. Also a little conversion work done that turned him into a Blood Angel. They are so much fun to convert with all my Space Marine bits. Really enjoyable.


Blood Angel Space Marine Primaris
Games Workshop, 32 mm














The Blood Angel is available for sale
and you can make him part of your very own collection. Right now - until December 1st - even with a Christmas discount on my full cataloge.

Keep on happy painting and beware of more Primaris to come!
Roman

MV News

by Roman aka jar

Hey Jungle,

allright.
We are still in the middle of uploading the full galleries for the MV challenge 2017. Due the amount of work it presents itself with you can expect it next week Monday. We ask for a little patience and promise results of the random prize pool too for early next week.

Painting class roadmap recieved an update with now all german languaged PDFs. We are working hard to bring you all english languaged PDFs soon. Some minor tweaks on the PDFs are still ahead of us, but price-, content-, date- and other information sticks the same of course. It is just about the material list. We will inform you on updates.

Thank you for your attention!
