Sadly my Photoshop trial ended a while ago, but I still have a few pieces of box artwork to show you when there hasn't been much progress which I can show you. Here's one of them, my first Warhammer Fantasy box, Isabella Von Carstein. A little bit of background about the model, I painted her for a school project around a year ago just after the model came out. Not quite your usual project...
As promised, here are pictures of the completed Strike Squad, the first project I've finished since I started this website. I only just got them done in time for the School's League, they were competed at 11pm the night before. As you can see, I did paint the bases as marble, it seemed a shame after the work I'd put in not to finish the job properly.
Well, I've been working on the diorama recently and it's great fun to build. I've finished building both of the models, so I'm showing Abbadon in this post and Loken in the next. Loken is going to be painted in several stages (notably, the cloak will be separate until I've finished the armour), so I've blue tacked the other pieces on for this photo.
So, we went to the School's League, and we didn't get through. But I did win best painted army and my models might be on the Games Workshop website at some point, so it was easily worth it. I'll post some pictures of the finished Strike Squad on here at some point soon, but until then I've got a few photos of my next project to show you.
I'm sorry I haven't updated the blog as often as usual, I've been a bit busy this week. Even so, I've still managed to make some progress. Here are some more pictures of the Strike Squad, which I've been painting for the School's League tournament. I've also taken some pictures, so the crystal blades tutorial is now in the tutorial section, I hope you like it!
The School's League is now quickly approaching, which means my deadline for the Strike Squad is as well. I've made a bit of progress on the squad, I've now finished the stone areas, storm bolters, and I've written their names on their shoulder pads. This means that I've now only got the turquoise areas, blades, bases and the Justicar's face left to paint. Hopefully I'll be able to show you another picture of them soon.
Here's another box which I've created on Photoshop, this time of my Terminator Inquisitor Lord. I'm starting to get the hang of how Photoshop works now, so this one was quicker to create than before. As well as working on this I've also been doing a more work on the Strike Squad, I've now finished all the stone areas. I think they'll be done in time, so long as I keep going at a decent rate.
I've always wondered what one of my models would look like on the front of a Games Workshop box, and I think it looks quite good! I recently downloaded the Photoshop free trial, because I wanted to try and make some nice looking photos of my models in their natural environment. Once I'd made the picture, I decided to put it onto a box, because Games Workshop box artwork always looks cool.
