Outstanding work there my friend.

I would love a tutorial on how to paint wood like that, if it's not too much trouble?

Can I ask, how many colors you use on each area? For example the leg of the barbarian has 3 colors (= 3 layers)? (I guess, no)… And if there are too many layers doesn’t it lose some of its details?

by the way, congratz for your job. They are more than awesome. I have seen some incredible artist like you at coolminiornot, but I’ve never seen a set of HQ painted from a professional.

Holy crap... H O L Y C R A P!
If you thought unicorns farting rainbows made a a masterpiece, you are just wrong. It is not fair for someone with this much skill to show us what he's capable of. The relative progress we may have mad, when compared to this, sets us back to square 1 starting. That's how I at least feel. I'm going into the corner to go cry and bring on as much loathing and self pitying I can manage over my minis not up to this quality.

Sarcasm: Ban this person for making us feel like we've achieved nothing /Sarcasm <--- Not too far from the truth...

So for the wood... I try many many things and I'm still trying.
The first thing is : have your base color right and carefully chosen before you start, my process implies the rule : when it's done , it's done...
I use as a base an orangy brown, kind of red brown when opaque and yellowy when transparent... A mix from flat brown, orange ink and red brown. It's tricky and In can't make it for you.
Then a brush a thin coat on my wood area (over a opaque and unifrom white undercoat as always), perfectly even. It should be very light yellow brown. Once dry I begin to draw the veins of the wood with long brush strokes. 3 or 4 coats later the veins appears and I've got roughly the same color than our belowed cardboard for the furnitures. I take then a bluish black ink and put some shadow where needed. I mix red and black paint and draw all the lining between panel and deep scratches.
Then everything is blended and the color corrected with an ornage ink diluted and evenly applied. I reinforce the veins with brown ink and finally add a light yellow ocre on the edges of the scratches.
You cant rework what you've done because when you paint is opaque the effect is very bad and dull. The vibrant color is only due to the white of the undercoat showing trough my paint.
Have fun |_P
So as you can see, there is many colors and many coats of paint, all very thin and carefully applied. So no detail is lost.
If you want to find my professionnal work it's here : http://remytremblay.sculpture.over-blog.com/
It uncludes some of my student work in artschool (but self-learned...but that's an another story), the whole hyper-reaslitic things. And a few old personnal works.
For my personnal space when it comes to the point of experimenting it's here :

I'm not the guy from scibor, I sculpted for many company and I'm now working with MikeMcVey himself on an upcoming bordgame.
Cheers

oh, my Goddess, you're the guy sculpting for Mantic!?!? That is AWESOME! Mantic's products are getting SO much better, and now I understand why!

I envy such professionalism, I could never achieve this. It does make me feel a tiny bit better knowing you're doing this for a living. Still, wow, I wish all my bones and Zombicide models could look even HALF this good.

Did you also sculpt for Guillotine Games / Zombicide? If so: oh, my Goddess can you get season 1 promo figures? :o :o :o

I badly want these guys lol.


I see you also did Dreadball figures. (awesome dwarves! could be used as dwarven juggernauts in a fantasy game) They remind me of the MYTH game sculpts in style. But maybe that's just the colour and "feel" of the fimo.

I think we found a new tutor to work on some of the 'how to' videos and instructionals we were wanting. Anyone else think we can pressure him into doing it? I know I'll never get anywhere near what these amount to but I could fake it by dreaming. It's somewhat less demeaning knowing he's a professional and I'm not. I envy that type of skill and somewhat of the innate talent needed to produce those results.
