Space, the final frontier

Today I am very happy to present my latest finished project to you.  After months without any practice I am happy with the outcome of this miniature. It doesn't take itself that serious, at least I don't. It was meant to bring back the fun of painting into my life, something that was lost for quite some time now. I tried to put some kind of perpective into the base, unfortunately my cam doesn't manage to take decent pictures, everything seems to be blurry and shiny (due to flashlight).

Anyway, Kirk was great fun to paint. Again I used Airbrush for the global lights and shadows, before I went into detail with the normal brush and Vallejo Air Colours. Yellow is a very tricky colour to paint and it was my first try with it. I was worried about the combination of colours used on the miniature and the base but the final result is fine for me.

Hell, this REALLY was fun to paint, and I am looking for the reason. Maybe it is because this will most likely never see a contest. Maybe it is because the research about this topic was so much fun. I really don't know....However, I will try to keep this level of motivation up and start my next project during the next couple of days.

If you have any feedback on this miniature, I would be happy the read it.

  3. Very beautiful. What I do not understand is the preponderance of yellow on the black trousers. Where does the light come from?
    Apart from that one hell of a piece!
