Tip of the week

by Roman aka jar


Plan projects in your brain, not only on your table.
The more time you take for planning, inspiration collection, planning your paintjob colorwise and light situation wise, the more your brain works before you actual start the work the easier your paintjob will flow and you will not get lost in a labyrinth of painting by numbers. Learn to see your vision in all aspects and figure projects will paint themselves.

Know the music that inspires you.

Into the sun

by Roman aka jar

Good Morning Jungle,

this figure is special.
Special in terms on how I painted it.
It is a) a gift and b) and uncommon paintjob. The bust is "Laszlo" by FER Miniatures and was painted as a gift to my good friend and MV monkey brother Peter.

This summer we both spent a week of holiday on La Palma on the canarian island, Spain. We had great weather and tons of beautiful views. Unfortanetely Peter got sunburned on the first day with some nasty skin reaction to the sun cream or whatsoever. Nobody knows, but too much sun ain't good for Dracula. 
 



Well, the bust is a gift for Peter as he moves back to Augsburg finally, back to the city of the MV headquarters and this is something to celebrate. Therefor this guy was painted pale and ...

Keep on happy painting!

Good Morning Jungle people,

now that the MV Challenge 2017 is over it is time to switch over to "normal" jungle mode. Articles, finished projects and inspiration incoming.

Important information:
I got a lot of private coaching inquiries these days, but I am not able to answer them until early January due several reasons: a) I am already booked until April and b) I will forget about everything we plan together because of Christmas beauty approaching faster than expected. Please be patient with me, I am getting back to you as soon as possible. Sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience.

Well, here is Bouddica. A beautiful Hasslefree Sculpt that I have painted recently as an exchange figure to a friend. I hope you like her. I had plenty on fun painting her.

This figure is not for sale. In private collection.

Keep on happy painting!
Best Wishes

Look at art, life, nature, your figures,
 your friends, family, pets, your car, your world in black and white once in a while. I know. Not with your eyes. Use photofilters to change something to black and white.

This will help you to see how you can achieve contrast in hues, can give you inspiration where to place and compositioning dark and bright colors to see harmony all over or bring attention to a certain spot. There is a reason why I did put my preview pictures on www.romanlappat.com in black/white. It teaches me if a figure and a paintjob I did works in terms of hues. Of course it is not all black and white, there is grey too ;)

Cheers and happy painting!
