i've finally gotten around to starting my flag model.
i'm not going with the standard paint scheme (dark cool grey) since i already have a few shades of this green to work with, and finding a place to buy tamiya paint here has been impossible!
so here's the progress after day one. the paint's still super rough. i had some issues with the parts...(tough figuring out what's goin on with japanese instructions) it seems as though it wanted me to defy physics to get the inner parts of the torso to articulate... i ended up having to do some hacking and slashing to get it working...
i've primed all the parts normally, but i'm doing the painting with a brush, like i've done in the past with warhammer models. (not sure how that'll turn out...we'll see)
so here's a few pages of some ideation style exploration.
this is a 6x9 sketchbook, so these aren't that big.
this first style is pretty much how i sketch now but looser and with a different pen...
this style is way different from what i do now. more of a continuous line thing.
a 30 second summary of life as a fat cat.
the one thing i'm sure i like about this style is that it's very quick. so i'm gonna feel this out a bit, fill a few sketchbooks before classes, and see how i like it. i'm sure that this style is one that needs to be practiced a shitload, so that's what i'm gonna do.
