Review: Private Coaching with Jonas

By Massive Voodoo

Hey Jungle,
This late summer, Jonas from Sweden was visiting me for a two day private coaching.

Me & Jonas

Two beautiful sunny days passed by …

Jonas and I were tackling my Advanced Class content as the coaching topic, where I explain a lot of interesting advanced things, mainly focusing on how to implement and understand atmosphere rules while you paint.

Tons of theory for Jonas.

The first steps of Jonas, applying what was learned.

Confused first.

Confused Jonas, still.

… but as promised, a happy Jonas in the end 🙂

Jonas result of these two days of coaching.
Main topic was to understand atmoshpere, but also sub-topic: Advanced theory and techniques for understanding to paint skin and faces and metallic colors.

Thank you for two quite beautiful days, Jonas.
Thanks for your trust in my teaching skills and your happy painting approach. Thanks for the awesome talks and fun we had together.

Keep on happy painting!
Yours
Roman

Tutorial: The 36 Chambers to master your toothpick

By Massive Voodoo

Welcome Jungle Painters,

to an uncommon article about one certain tool.
It could be called a “Toolstory”, but to stay in line with Massive Voodoo’s magical miniature painter tricks I call this …

The 36 Chambers to master your toothpick.
A toothpick is a tool every solid miniature painter should have in his stock.
There are many ways how to handle a toothpick. Way too many. I heard myself say to my students that a toothpick is as essential for a miniature painter as a brush. Kind of. Quite. Somehow. Let me take you through the 36 chambers of the
toothpick-fu.

__________________________________________________________________________

Chamber #01
Precise superglueing.

Use a toothpick to pick up a small amount of superglue and start glueing without accidents. Precision.

Chamber #02
Removing small hairs 
Sometimes small hair get stuck in paint when you paint freely. It can be dust or hair from your brush or beard. A toothpick is the perfect tool to remove it. A little pressure.

Chamber #03
Can not find your tweezers?
Use two toothpicks and train picking up tiny stuff with tiny sticks.

Chamber #04
Become a spartan warrior!
When you sit down for quite the time to paint figures do some body exercise once in while. One good thing is to grab some friends and let them mark their personal toothpick with their color mark. Then go for toothpick-far-throwing and enjoy the ancient warrior feeling.

Chamber #05
Your colors are blocked at the tip?
Use a toothpick to open them up again! Pressure as you see fit. With this technique you can also pull out the plastic tip to inject an aggigator ball in your paint or to check if the paint is still in a good state.


Chamber #06
Precision work
If you working with really tiny stuff, for example, selfmade icicles or using string for basing and conversion you can use a toothpick to place them very precise. A good combination with #01.

Chamber #07
Same sized dots

A brush is movable and not totally stiff. Painting same sized dots with it is a challenge if you do more than 30. If you use a toothpick, dunk it in paint and do some dot training with it you will see that with a certain amount of paint you can do several dots in the same shape and size. Check back with the article on this demonette: Making skin with dot grain

Chamber #08
Painting eyes
With the same technique you can paint eyes easier than with a brush. At least the ones from supertiny 28 mm figures. It really does help!


Chamber #09
Sharpen your toothpick
When you sharpen your toothpick with careful bladework you have a more precise tool for so far learned lessons.

Chamber #10
Protect yourself with a sharpened toothpick
In any case you are attacked by tiny mammoths a sharpend toothpick is the excellent weapon to protecty yourself.

Chamber #11
Create your own weathering tool
If you take a tiny piece of a sponge and glue it – of course with superglue – to the tip of a toothpick you will recieve a beautiful weathering tool to dip in paint and create battle damage.

Chamber #12
Use booth sides of your toothpick
Now we are learning much more young painting monk, eh? If you use both ends of your toothpick, you can be faster. For example you can protect yourself in two directions against wild tiny mammoths or use more variety of your weathering tool by having different tips.

Chamber #13
Never lose your imagination
Even in simple things you can always find inspiration if your imagination runs free. This for example could be an epic battle of a furry mammoth against a toothpick warrior.

Chamber #14
Toothpicks are for basing
Yes, toothpicks or parts of them can be used for basing. See the middle base example and find the toothpick.

Chamber #15
Toothpicks have bigger brothers
Cocktail sticks are bigger and fatter and can be used for the same purposes like the regular toothpick. They might just protect you from bigger mammoths or can be used for basing too. Hah!

Chamber #16
You can erase a mistake with a toothpick
If you have  a dot of paint on top of your last painted layer because of an accident you can erase it by carefully rubbing it with a toothpick. You got to bite off the tip of the toothpick and drown this part now with your spit. When it is soaked with spit you can then carefully rub off the last layer of paint. Even it is dry. You can even create cool battle damage effets. For example if this last layer is a painted squad symbol on a shoulder pad. Just do some scratches and let the color below get back again. Careful.

Chamber #17
Train to use four toothpicks at once
You will be the octopus of precise and fast working on miniatures. Masterful teschhniqué!






Chamber #18
Create toothpick art
Duplicate and train the tricks you have just learned and you will understand how to do tricks with a toothpick while figure painting. This is something to really show off with and impress the girls.

Chamber #19
Use it as your “dirty tool”
Sometimes you might encounter hobby stuff that you want to put to your base, but not using a brush. You can use a tootpick instead.

Chamber #20
Create tiny shells on a boat
Old ships. You can find supertiny shells on their belly who start settling there. Using small dots of Vallejoy Putty 401 and using a toothpick to punch a hole in the middle before it is dry can create these.

Chamber #21

Do not use a toothpick to clean your airbrush
No words for this. Just do proper airbrush maintenance.

Chamber #22

Use toothpicks for pinning columns
Nothing worse than columns that fall when you paint them wildly in wet in wet. Pin them easily by drilling holes in them and place a toothpick. Tschuk!

Chamber #23

Use sharpened toothpicks to build tiny barricades
With these you can protect your camp from tiny mammoths.


Chamber #24

Use a toothpick for basic sculpting
Sculpting a tiny teadybear with a toothpickor sculpting a nurgle blob with it. Learn to sculpt here!

Chamber #25
Always be aware of the toothpick
Always, while you work, be aware of the presence of the toothpick. Always know its position and you will you will be prepared for everything. Do know the presence of the superglue, too.

Chamber #26
Stock up
Never run out of toothpicks at your miniature painting workspace. You’d rather have one too much, than one too less.

Chamber #27
Apply posters with a toothpick
This hobby article explains it to you.

Chamber #28
Toothpicks sculpt tiny mushrooms easily
This hobby article explains it to you.

Chamber #29
Toothpicks can guide composition
A beautiful base should be build up with several composition rules to impress and guide the viewers eye. A toothpick brings in a direction and a reading line for the eye. Improve your basing composition skills in this hobby article.

Chamber #30
Sculpt bread or potatoes
Small pieces of bread for a medieval bakery can be sculpted easily with putty and a toothpick.

 

Chamber #31
Train your senses
Always be aware of the presence and place of your toothpick stock. Always. It can be hard, but you will master it. Not with the eyes. With your senses.

 

Chamber #32
Use a toothpick for precise pressue
If you want to create pressure focusing on one small spot, use  a toothpick and all the power of your arm for it. The toothpick tip will bundle your strength. Use this knowledge carefully, can be combined with toothpick lesson #04 and #10 and #17.

 

Chamber #33
Clean your teeth after a meal
A basic skill that everyone should be able to use if need be. After a meal you can clean your teeth with a tootpick from pieces of salad, meat or chocolate. So you can smile without “issues”.

Chamber #34
Build toothpick figures

With kids or your friends who are still kids you can build figures with toothpicks. You can use blue tack or even chestnuts.

Chamber #35
Spent a lifespan with a toothpick project
Scott Weaver waits at the end of the journey through the toothpick mastery chambers. He did build this and you can read about it here.

Chamber #36
Impress the ladies

Learn these lessons again. Take your time. If you do you can make toothpick gymnastics on your finger and let one two toothpicks dance over your hand. It is amazing to impress girls or just to train your finger acrobatics … but remember, some ladies will not be impressed. See above!

I hope you enjoyed this journey and that you accept the faith that is within every toothpick you pick up. The journey is in you and your tool!

Keep on happy painting!
Roman

Gallery of my miniature works:

I’m Daniele and I’m from an amazing island named Sicily 🙂
I was always fascinated from miniature world since i was a child, but unfortunately i stopped
 to paint caused by studies and other interests.
My passion for miniatures started while I was visiting Japan in 2013.
We were in Osaka, and my eyes were focused on a small kit containing the famous car of 
“Back to the Future” movie 🙂 🙂
I bought it immediately and when I got home, I started assembling the kit and painting it.


From that moment on, I discovered the world of miniatures and so I began to paint.

The next step was to push me further and discover the sculpture.
I started sculpting because I loved the idea of ​​being able to create something from scratch: 
completely alone.

For about two years, I put aside any other hobby and I have devoted myself actively to the 
sculpture study,

I must say with much satisfaction.

My goal for the future is to improve in sculpture, to do something that really gives me pleasure, 
fun and satisfaction in order  to create unique pieces to entertain artists and collectors like me.

Sculpting is a no-goal related action for me.
I do this  simply because I love it.
I do it because it makes me feel good and makes me feel alive.

In my opinion, miniature art is not a simple hobby.
It is pure art.
It’s a way you can express your creativity, and create a unique piece that remains forever.

Be careful to always having fun while you’re creating something: the FUN  is the key!
Keep Sculpting
Daniele

Review: Color Theory Workshop with Alfonso Giraldes, Banshee – Augsburg

By Massive Voodoo

“First of all, the course for me was truly how a course should be with the right mix of theory and practicing. I loved the fact that Alfonso referred to historical pieces and historical artists as well which brings the message across so well. It opens up a whole new world of inspiration, and I love that. Second of all, I think Alfonso is a good teacher and I like his straightforward and honest approach a lot.

The group atmosphere was very nice and I think everyone was very inspired and ready to try out ‘new’ things after the course. But most of all, I learned that I can be so much more creative, which I feel I have lost over the years. I learned not to be afraid of the plastic, the resin and the colours but to just embrace it : ) Sounds weird but it’s difficult to put it in exactly correct writing. Third of all, Alfonso is so knowledgeable which means you can ask him all sort of questions on all sorts of projects and techniques. Finally, I think everyone had a lot of fun and there was room to learn from each other as well.

All in all, for me I rate it a 10 out of a 10 and I have been painting every day since in many different ways by actually painting and trying but also by getting inspired by everything around.”


THANK YOU!

Best,Jurre”

Well,
Massive Voodoo brought Alfonso Giraldes aka Banshee over to Augsburg, Germany to teach one of his famous Color Theory seminars. The list of participants was quickly filled and a great weekend spent in Augsburg with many known faces. If you do not know Alfonso and his work and approach to figure painting check this artist portrait I wrote of him.

I for my part,
was not taking part in the seminar. I did this once and it opened my eyes to many new things. Here is the review of Alfonso’s first class in Augsburg some years back. This time I was helping in organisational aspects and took photos during the class.

I was really happy to see many of my friends and very own students alike see to get the Alfonso input. A passionate input about painting that words just can not justify. It is an exhausting weekend, but extremly rewarding on the long run when it comes to the knowledge of painting.

Some more impressions of the class …
Moments.

Mmmmmhhhhhh!

Mmh?

Mmh!

The seminar took place in my old school,
where I used to learn to become a teacher. It was the perfect place for this class.

Thank you Alfonso for coming to Augsburg
and teaching this class to a fully packed classroom. It has been some splendid days with you my friend!I also want to thank everyone coming to this workshop. Without you there is no reason to organise it. My plan is to have some more special guests teaching hands on in Augsburg next year! Stay tuned for 2019 and check back with the roadmap of seminars 2019!

Keep on happy painting!
We love brush strokes!

Yours
Roman

Massive Voodoo News

By Massive Voodoo

Heyho MV readers,

wow, what a year 2018 has been so far.
Many things in private life happened, but not only for me, also for everyone else of the Massive Voodoo Team. Active members, inactive members and also in the lifes of all our readers.

Many things just happen, you can not paint yourself away from it. A lesson learned this year as I usually just went painting when things happened in the past.

When you read these lines you will see my write as “we” and as “I”. “I” means it is just my word, “we” means I do speak for the full MV Team.

First of all,
I want to thank everyone reading and supporting the MV blog, fresh and veteran readers. Thank you for your loyalty and continous support in what we do in here. I do speak in the name of the full MV Team.

We all know that life goes on.
In our age Tupac told us. Just keep your head up, eh?

Life can bring many changes and it does the older you grow as more days on this planet mean more things sum up in your life. Good things, bad things, changes, time used wisely, time used wrong, heartaches and happy joyful feelings and much more. Life gives you all of it. Most of the time we are all not prepared for it. And then changes happen with being out of control of situations. And that is another lesson learned: let it happen and go with the changes instead of fighting against them. It is called “flow” and you can imagine it like a river. It flows in a direction. It does not change the direction of the flow as what is behind is what the water masses already passed. Flow.

MV Studio Change
As we change and grow as humans we learn about the flow, we learn to accept changes.
One of these changes is that the so far known Massive Voodoo Studio will no longer exist. We will move places. All efforts to keep the Kulturpark in place did not work out in the end and the three buildings will be torn down in September 2019.

Luckily this does not mean that the Kulturpark dies.
It is even bigger now as several units of buildings will spread over the town and will host even more artists and musicians than before. We will still be a part of it. Actual plans are to move the beloved studio to its new location around April/May 2019. Right now we are waiting for more precise information. Thanks so far to all the people offering their help for the move. You are just too great, be sure I get back to you when I know more.

Another change on the horizon is that Peter and Raffa
of the MV Team decided that being a highly active part in the studio does not make much sense for them with all the changes life brought for them. Of course the studio costs rent and both are enjoying the miniature hobby as a hobby. Beside family, kids, new friends, new hobbies and new jobs there is not much time left for studio painting time. We sat together like a gang of monkeys and planned things through and the studio will see changes, too. One painter from Munich, Johannes, is already confirmed to have a full seat in the MV studio, starting in December. Plan is to find another artist for a third spot and we are actually working on it. We will have updates on this for you as soon as they are available.

A little word from Raffa
Hey everyone! Roman’s words describe the situation spot on.
Discovering the world together with my little girl and working in a new job*, there’s little time left for hobbies – and spending time in the studio seems like a nearly impossible task.
My life has changed so much, it’s almost unbelievable.
Creative energies are still flowing to other areas of interest, making music, video stuff, physical computing projects and the like.
But another thing has changed from the end of my “professional miniature painting” career and the start of a normal job:
I don’t feel the need to share my creations (social media) neither do I feel a big need of finishing things (especially music tracks). I just do things for myself as long as I enjoy them, without any pressure. Enjoying the moment and the creation itsself.
Sometimes I get the urge to paint minis, but honestly, it’s not very easy for me… I come home late and at the weekends it’s family time and not “dissappear into the studio” time 😉

Anyway – It’s a part of me that I hold dear and I am sure there will come other times.
I want to move certain things from the studio to my home so it’s easier to do that “one hour of painting”.

So much from my side 🙂

* I am now the Creative Director in a multi media company creating mostly video contents and digital signage communication strategies with my team for big retail clients.

The new studio will be bigger
to provide more space for teaching seminars. A good and healthy change.

MV Team Changes
We also have exciting news ahead of us as the active MV Team grows stronger soon. Stay tuned in!

Review: Private Coaching with Sebastian

By Massive Voodoo

Good Morning Jungle,

it is time for another review.

Earlier this year Sebastian, a well experienced student of mine visited me for a two day private coaching session in the MV studio.

Sebastian is curious about his lesson,
what else is he hiding behind his beard?

It started on a sunny day in Augsburg …

And we tackled a long overdue content for Sebastian: 

  • Learn to paint atmosphere in a Miniature Project
  • Learn to keep everything in your project balanced in harmony
  • Learn to paint skintones
  • Advanced Color Theory
  • Advanced Blending Techniques
  • Advanced Happy Painting Methods

 As a teacher knowing Sebastian’s progress and skill level I knew that this is exactly what would push him forward to more painting joy and freedom.

Some theory exercise on the subject

We soon tackled a bust by Life Miniatures.
Sebastian’s choice and a great stroytelling bust.

Sebastian applied his clear vision
as a sketch to the bust. Do you know how important it is to have a clear vision to your project? Not only an idea. A vision that you see, feel and know how to paint it.

This is Sebastian’s final version on how he took the bust home from the coaching. We did not finish it to 100% during the two days of coaching as I was asking so much theory knowledge 🙂

As I know Sebastian, the final version when he is done and has put some more hours in it will be incredible. Can not wait!

Thank you for two beautiful days in the studio, my friend!
Take care and keep on happy painting!

Best Wishes
Roman
