The King Child - Diorama of the Day

I have previously shown another piece by Nicolas Cabaret of JBA Diorama. A small vignette called Baba Yaga. Nicolas is creating some of the most spectacular and inspiring work I have ever seen and I have spend the last couple of nights looking at all the wonderful pictures on his website.

This piece is called The King Child and features a wrecked ship crushed by the ice. In the centre of the diorama Nicolas has sculpted a nice scene of a child jumping into the arms of a man. I guess he has a long story to go along with the diorama and if you are the curious type you should really explore his site. There's a lot of treasures to find.

Great tutorial for figure painting

I have been thinking of getting more into painting large scale figures over the last couple of months. It looks very appealing to me. A very creative process with a lot more freedom than the usual military kits. Aircraft looks great and they are fun to build but you have something specific, you are working towards and most of the time it's a picture or a drawing of an actual aircraft. Hence you are working to make a rendition of the real aircraft. Most of the figures are a product of imagination and they don't exist in real life so you have no reference for your painting.

Because of this I have been looking at a lot of tutorials on figure painting. Rusty Nails of Grex Airbrushes made this excellent tutorial you can use as a step by step guide to how you achieve Translucent skin effects. Great video. Enjoy fellows.
