Morat WIP continues..

So I have had some time to work on this model a bit today. Mostly on the base that it will ultimately sit on.

Thought was of a broken street side, brick wall, kind of setting. Not fully finished ( obviously ) but something is missing on it and I am not sure what at the moment. Model is not glued down, just pinned for the time being to see what he looks like in the setting. I like the setting I think just not the colors :( Might redo .. well.. a lot of it.. just not sure as yet..


I'm using the same red/brown on the bricks as I did on the Morat's armor and pants.

Did this to get some sort of continuity between the model and the base.

Still have to figure out what is missing and how to correct it. In the meantime it will probably go back up onto the shelf for a bit until I figure it out and know how to update it properly.

Any comments to add to it are greatly accepted and welcome!

Oh and a quick shot of what my wet palette looks like for doing this base at the moment.


A bit chaotic.. can blame Roman for this and his style of painting, but at the same time it works for me so.. :)

In the meantime, back to life with family :) Oh and other commissions like the gangers.. have some nice ideas on the leather sections, and I am really excited to try it out.

  1. Hola
    Bonita escena,me gusta la composicional que as elegido.
    Para mi gusto lo que podrías hacer para darle un poco mas de realismo,puede ser desconchar un poco los ladrillos y darle mas luces,algún impacto de arma en la pared,como si fuera un tiroteo,y en el suelo algún tono mas de tierra.
    Pero ya sabes es una opinión,y tu la tienes en mano,y sabes lo que le puede venir mejor.

    1. Gracias JD.
      Se salta algunos de los ladrillos. Yo había hecho un poco en los de tierra, y el pegamento les textura un poco, pero no lo suficiente en los pedazos de muro. Y pistola agujeros! ¿Por qué no hice eso ya! Ugh .. moviendo demasiado rápido en una causa proyecto en el que se enredó con aspectos distintos de la misma.
      No está seguro acerca de las marcas del suelo / sombreado. Usado más rocas sobre esta base (la esposa no quiere que cavar en sus plantas de lo que parece), pero trataremos de encontrar algo para futuros proyectos.
      Gracias como siempre por los comentarios aquí! Siempre bienvenidos y ahora a ver su aplicación!

    2. Hola
      Siempre son buenas la ideas,también que se me paso,puedes simular los casquillos de arma en el suelo,yo lo e echo con la parte redonda de los palillos,luego se pintan en metálico y quedan muy bien.
      un saludo

    3. Hmm .. balas gastadas podría funcionar aquí .. junto con los agujeros de bala a entrar en la pared. Tendrá un vistazo y ver si puedo encontrar pequeños palillos de dientes suficientes para trabajar por esto! Gracias de nuevo por las ideas!

  2. Super nice job going on here, Mr. Lee. The rebar is a sweet touch to your base modeling; and the wet palette "in use" picture is a great visual for those who may have not used one yet.

    1. Thanks Jay.. am also always seeing others wet palettes posted up and thought I would do the same when and where I can. Also thanks for the comment about the rebar.. was not sure it would be seen or be pulled off properly.. still have to paint it though so will see..

  3. I think what may be 'missing' or 'off' is that the street is the same colour and texture as the wall. Maybe if you make the 'street' bricks a different colour, something dark, will make your model and your scene pop out a bit more? Have to say though, great paintjob on the model!

    1. Thanks for this comment, and I think your right! Too much of the same thing can not be good.. will redo the base bricks now in another color.. any suggestions? :)
