I had a lot of fun working on the Jeoffrey Baratheon figure from the Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game! He was painted in one of my “On the Workbench” episodes that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/501jT53hFd4
I try to break down the painting of all the miniatures into simpler steps… typically 5 sections. The first discusses what materials are involved, and then it moves on to the initial glazing and Shaded Basecoat phase in part 2.
I want to work in the sketching of the Freehand design as early in the process as possible, for a few reasons. If that design is sketched in at an earlier point, I have a lot more room to make adjustments! Painting a complex freehand pattern over a surface that you have spent a lot of time working on can be daunting.
It can be so daunting, many folks don’t even attempt the freehand, because they don’t want to “mess up the figure”
I am the King!
This image also shows the basing of the figure, which was done with the Green Stuff World Texture rollers.
And a peek at the freehand design!
