Gave some of the freighter crew a simple paintjob to get a feel for 15mm. Some thoughts I had:
Highlights need to be big and exaggerated in order to be visible
Washes only do so much
I need detail brushes!
Geez, 15mm paints up quickly!
Overall I rate the painting as acceptable but it seems obvious that I'm going to need to adapt to this new tiny scale. Practice makes perfect I guess. They did, however, paint up without a ton of effort so 15mm is already a success in my book.
Here is one more shot for detail and scale. Note to self, build a lightbox. ;)
I love how Sci-Fi settings let you play around with bright colors. The woman in red reminds me of Michael Jackson... in a good way, mind you.
Anyway, thanks for viewing! More to follow.
