About the Project

I am painting Stuffed Fables. The character is very cute. I skip the other project in order to finish this. I have plan to play game with my kids before the school break in Thailand around March. I am quite busy from my new job. I plan to finish 3 characters a week as plan. I am slow painter. I have around 3 hours 3 days a week. My idea is make the hero brighter than the enemy. Moreover, I will do pattern technique to make it look like the real Stuffies Hope you like it.

Quick & Dirty Paint Jobs

Dark Heart MinionsDark Heart Minions

Sincerely, My effort is nearly lost for this project. The minions are not that Wow for me to paint. So, I decide to make the quick mass production.  My idea is there are from the same batch of doll creation as each patch of individual may come from the other minions.  I picked main 6 colors and randomly painted each path. I select the green as the main colors as the art card and I want to put the opposite color for the eye to make it stand out. The center of the minion that is pulled the plastic heart out is glowing red.

Color Choice

Body Head & 3 Ears: Scale75 5 Colors randomly paint Greenskin Flesh, Surfer Orc Fresh, Goblin Flesh, Armarath Blue, Peanut Butter, Lilith Yellow. Highlight with mix of white and glaze with red with black

Eyes: Scale75 Mayhem Red hilight mix of white and use Red Black Glaze

Needle Work Line: Pure White

Heart Hole:  Under paint with Scale Mishatonic Grey and Purity white and Glaze with Citadel Blood Letter focus on inside the hole

I do some research about the character and found that he is the brother of the legend of the Man on the Moon.

So, I want to put stars on his cloak as there is a lot of space to make it.  Moreover, I would like to show his dark magic like the character design art. Then, I want paint have OSL technique magic from his both hands.

I did some color matching ideas from my phone. I used Samsung Note 8 with pen to draw the color (Pencil Tools) from Screen Write App to test some idea before paint.

Trial and Error - Vanish

I mostly vanished with Thai Local Brand spray branded TVB.  But I just got the new Sparkle Reflect Spray from Local Stationary Store named ‘Somjai’.  The seller told me that it is fluorescent substance in the can without color, so I decided to buy and try.  The result turn bad and it is foggy white on the miniature. The good thing, it reflect all the light during the night.

You can see the difference at the Snatcher Robot hands with the flash and without flash.

He is green gorilla. He is stong, but in the other side I want to put little humor to him. There is many interesting points to paint and has a lot of space to free hands. I decided to do NMM and Freehand Tattoo at his shoulder and may be back. But I need more time to do some reserch.

Stitch is the most detailed among the heroes. He has many shade of brown and strip pattern.  I used mixed up of a lot colors, so I can’t remember and record the paint recipe.

This time, I tried new technique of using opposite color in shading shadow. I used mix of darkblue and black with glazing medium in shading, which is the opposite color of orange brown. I have an idea to pin the real pin to the head like the art, but my fried told me not to do. Becuase it is dangerous for my kids during playing the game.
