I wear a fez now, fezzes are cool!

The Eleventh Doctor
28 mm
 


Well, he's done!  I'm not entirely happy with the photos, but I do like my paint job (I'm allowed to do that, right?).  I didn't even try for that subtle tweedy texture on his coat, I just got on a roll last night and did the blending on it and that was that.  I would have highlighted the pants more, but IRL they're this super dyed denim that barely reflects any light.  His skin looks more yellowish here than it really is, I may try to reshoot these if time allows.

In other news, I've done some painting for Khurasan Miniatures, and I'll post those whenever I get the greenlight to show them to you.  A few new sculpts of amazing quality, with a hint of 90's TV nostalgia...

  3. Nice work, and captures the character very well. I wholly approve.

    "Done some work for" ... you are doing the studio paint job? If so, cool! Completely deserved.

  5. You just want the rest of us to give up, don't you?! Really fantastic painting Allison, so much clarity and detail, and when you can paint as well as this, you most certainly ARE allowed to be pleased with it!

  7. This is excellent. The face has really captured him well. I noted a comment on an earlier post about the jacket detail which I have tried to include on my version but the lack of it here hasn't hurt at all in fact its allowed you to capture the shine of the clothe much better. Sometimes too much detail detracts from the figure as I found when painting the 2nd doctor, I could not get the trouser pattern to look good until I stopped myself at a less detailed level and and said that works there do not go any further. Brilliant look forward to seeing that Kurason work.

    1. Yes, sometimes less IS more, and working within one's limits isn't necessarily bad if you are happy with the results :)

      Thanks again!
