Ooh, that's a nice one as well. And it's interesting how extremely different it is from Seb's! I just love how in painting you can do things completely differently and yet the end result can be awesome :D

As for your WIP - looking good! I like how you're going with metallics for some and normal colours elsewhere in a pretty organic way.

Thanks for the pics, AGN! I love seeing people paint these minis, and the colours you choose! :D

The green vs red-pink ont he flower seller looks great, very different and cool - nice work, you've really managed to get the details to stand out well :) I see you're going to carry the colour scheme across onto the Gamekeeper too - cool! Can't wait to see more progress.

@math haha wow I forgot all about that old metallics tutorial you linked on Oz Painters! Is it just a coincidence or did you know that I actually wrote that article, somewhere in the deep distant past...? :geek: :mrgreen:

I'm hoping to get some more painting tutorials/articles done featuring Twisted minis, soon - this is good motivation!

Pics, then I'll come back with some comments. I can't get multiple attachments to work.

So I have some clean up to do on those bases. How come I did not see that before I took the photo?

I am struggling with TMM. Following Seb's "glazing" technique, I am not blending the transitions well. Following Dave Powell's "paint mixing" technique, I am not getting as much contrast as I want (the story of my life). Anyway, I quite like them. This the first teacher I've seen painted. There must be others.

Math - I had seen the tut you posted, but a long time ago. I re-read it without realizing it was from "our" Seb. Cool! Of course, if you look at the brick wall in the tut and the chimney on the blacksmith you can see it immediately.

Wow! Seb's commenting on my post!

Seb, I love your comments. You credit me with too much thinking! Here is how it actually went.

AGN thinks: Tweed is kind of browny-green, lets start there.
AGN paints: Shit, that looks like mud.
AGN thinks: Okay, the legs are metal, you paint metal steam engines, so I can do any colour. The green in the tweed is like British racing green, so that will look good and tie into the tweed.
AGN paints: Shit, that green looks awful with the tweed, and makes it more green/less brown.
AGN thinks: That scroll work is beyond me. I need something that will really stand out against the green so it's easy to see ... use the complimentary color, red.

Sebs says: "I see you're going to carry the [red-green] colour scheme across onto the Gamekeeper too"

So, it was total accident. But it's a great idea, so I worked some red and green into the Teacher above.
