Radwulf the Lone Wolf - Mproyec

Hey hey hey!

Time to give some life to this blog! 

You may have noticed, the painting motivation has been very low since quite a long time, and i kinda disappeard from the miniatures scene. I'm not sure exactly why, but certainly a mix of different factors that i still need to identify clearly. Maybe one day i'll write something about it when it's clearer in my head.

I've only painted a few commission pieces during the last years and i just realised that all my last personnal projects are at least 2 years old (see below). Time flies so fast when you have kids (always easy to blame the kids) !

Fact is, i'm actually fighting hard to get some motivation back. I wish to find a way to enjoy this hobby again, to simply have fun playing with colors without thinking too much. With this idea in my head, i tried to finish a little conversion of the Radwulf, sculpted by Raul Garcia Latorre, that i started more than a year ago...

So i tried to find the fun in the process, using different techniques without focusing to much on the smoothness or the purely technical aspects that often kill the painting fun. I also wanted to use true metallic paints, simply because i think that in hands, well painted true metallics will always look better than a NMM effect. I've always been disappointed with NMM effects in reality, but it surely looks cool on the pictures and it's really fashion actually. In the end, it's just a personnal preference, i dont want to offend my spanish friends :D

Finally and it's the most important, with this project i felt back some of the fun i've had in the past, i enjoyed tasting the colors again, filling my rusty wet palette with water, colors, and hearing the sweet compressor noise for some airbrushed finitions.

I wouldnt say my fight is over, but this is the kind of fun and personnal projects that, i hope, will wake the sleeping painter up.


PS: Maybe this will also wake my blog partner up!

  1. Looks awesome man! I think you might be right with the true metalic metal, nmm seems to be overhyped lately because of the nice pictures you can take.

    Keep up the good motivation flowing. Im looking forward to your next article :-)
