2.0 here... It has been a loooong time.
I had a long vacation, and for the most part, my hobby drive was non-existing.
For the last month or so, I have been working on getting a fully painted space marine army, but more on that another day.
For now I want to talk about something fun! BLOOD BOWL.
This is the beginning of my Orc Allstar team which is going to represent some of the NFL teams, and I can tell you - it is pure fun to paint all these colourful uniforms and logos. The freehand is especially rewarding and it is what's keeping me going.
Each piece takes about an hour to paint, and I would like to share my technique with you all.
Let's look at the dolphins logo.
This logo can seem quite complicated (especially when you think about how small the shoulderpad actually is), but the key to any sucessful freehand is to divide the work into smaller pieces.
On this one for example, I started with the orange sun in the background. It can basically be described as a circle with a bunch of triangles attached to it. A nice trick is to look at almost everything as basic geometrical shapes - that way you won't get stuck trying to outline a something extremely complicated. First we have the circle.
Next step is to fill in the first shape and add the next like this.
From here on you can just add on more shapes and colour them up.
Well that was a long post. Hope you enjoyed it as much as me ;)
