Re: Speed painting challenge

Bane, they look fantastic! Really nice job - I like the pale blue skin. I usually don't. =)

Blue, Aiteal - thanks! Yeah, the amount of greeblies on her really added to the time. I tried to just pick something I wanted to paint, not something I thought I'd be able to slam dunk in under an hour. =D

Re: Speed painting challenge

So close... :cry:
I made it in 59 minutes (and some seconds) and then spoiled it all by drenching it in Devlan Mud.
I like that ink very much but normally I dilute it, something I forgot in the hurry.
So I wasted an additional 10 minutes with cursing, had to wait some more minutes until my wife left the kitchen with her fresh tea and then repainted some highlights on the face, the teeth and the bonnet (about 10 more minutes).

Well, At least I have something done for the 2015 legacy crew.

I failed miserably but on the bright side it is the first mini I've attempted to paint in months. If I tryed it with my old style and didn't use thinned down paint and multi coats would have succeeded. At least for 1 hour I did some painting which pleased me! Gc

Re: Speed painting challenge

I painted a gribbly, lots of washes and a few choice highlights coupled with a very warm evening to assist drying!

Very nice Fimm, I'm getting flashbacks to my childhood and my Granda warning us all not to walk out on the old coach road in Derry at dusk for fear of running into this fellah :)

Re: Speed painting challenge

As always, I'm late to the party but thought I'd have stab at this.
Now it seems to me there are two ways to approach the challenge. One, real men chose an interesting and complex figure and push themselves to try new techniques against the clock.
Or you find the simplest figure in the lead pile and paint the way you always do, only maybe a little bit faster. Maybe.

So having bravely chosen this extremely complex Copplestone Barbarian I noticed Harry has been painting these - doubtless in half the time - to a very high quality. Probably only to rub salt into the gaping wound of my painting inadequacy!

But or what it's worth this guy came in at 57:10. The ill-advised shield design was a consequence of waiting for an even more ill-advised watered down red wash on the skin to dry.

Re: Speed painting challenge

That barbarian doesn't look speed painted one bit to me !

You call those choices of red wash and shield designs ill -advised but in the end you made it and on top of that those details paid off !

Re: Speed painting challenge

This RT ork is my first speed painting attempt - clocked in at 59mins but then realised I'd forgotten his lower lip and toenails so I blew that ;) added them in after, took an extra 5 mins. Also in the fine tradition of this comp i didnt do his base :lol:

It wasn't my intention to paint this guy tonight but i spotted his puffy MC Hammerpants sticking out of the lead pile and it all seemed to make sense...
