Vejam que magnífico trabalho do Mr. Alexander Zelenkov, que ele postou. Eu achei espetacular, tanto quanto à pintura e acabamento, quanto às posições das figuras e até o sangue e os tiros ficaram convincentes, o que é bem difícil de acontecer. Detalhe, ele não usou aerógrafo, foi tudo no pincel, feito com técnicas de pintura de figuras.
As palavras dele e o trabalho estupendo:
"The Longest Day
22 June 1941. Figures by Stalingrad, GAZ-AAA by MiniArt were used. Entire dio was painted with brushes only. 1/35 scale.
I tried to paint base and vehicle like a figure - with painted light and shadows. And so, all work brush paint by tempera (same paint like a acrylic).
Usually modellers paint figures with attention to playing of light and shadows. Each fold get own light and shadow. But vehicles usually paint in another way - only with common wash and sometimes with modulations. Base usually doesn't get anything same. I believe it is wrong way. The AFVs and the bases needs same attention to work of light and shadows.
Especially I don't like DAK or desert dios. Usually modellers fix a big tank on light colored base and don't do any shadows work. And so, same diorama seems like a toys.
At first I painted all my diorama in deep black and just began shed light by the brush. The tint on brush became lighter and lighter in each new layer. That is all. No oil, no pigments, no magic chemistry from jars.
Best regards, Alexander Zelenkov
