Link Ups – April 5

I continue to lurch from one show/convention to the next with barely a moment to spare, so this poor blog has been pretty neglected. I promise I have some meatier content simmering on the back burner that I hope to finish up some time soon to share! In the meantime, here are some links to interesting and insightful info from other miniature painters and artists to help you on your painting journey.

Atlanta Model Figure Show Photos
I did finally manage to post my photos from three events back! There were some fantastic miniatures at the Atlanta Model Figure Show this year that I think you’ll enjoy looking through photos of.

Reaper Skin Tone Paint Information and Demonstration
Anne Foerster shares some insights and does demos with the various skin tone paint options available from Reaper Miniatures in this video. Anne’s segment starts about 11 minutes in.

More Information on Colour Theory
Jerry’s Artarama followed up their Color Theory 101 video that I linked to in a previous Link Ups with a recent Color Theory 201 segment. This one explains hues, values, and how to mix tints, shades, and tones in a clear way with demonstrations.

If you’d like a text document on colour theory to reference, this one or this other one are options. (I keep sharing different information on colour theory and mixing because it’s a subject I found I had to review multiple times with info from different sources before it really started to click for me.)

How We See Values (Contrast) and How that Affects our Art
This video by Cesar Santos has some interesting information about the nature of the human eye that leads to us making mistakes with light/dark value contrast.

  1. I contacted the artist who wrote the article that Cesar Santos summarized in the video linked above, and secured her permission to repost it to the Reaper forums. I’ve put the link in the “website” field of this comment, so hopefully it should be linked here once this post is approved.


    1. I am ecstatic that you were able to find the article and the author is willing to share it with us! I haven’t had a chance to read it in depth yet, but I look forward to doing so soon!
