This page is a collection of links to my favorite painting and modeling tutorials. The links here are ones that I’ve, personally, used to great success. In most cases I use these tutorials as a “baseline” and end of varying the technique to suit my skill level, available/preferred paints/materials, desired quality of results, and desired time commitment.

A YouTube video showing how to using glazing to create really effective and exciting fire effects. I like to a bit more contrast between the ridges and valleys by pulling light colors higher up in the valleys and dark colors lower down on the ridges. When possible, I also prefer to use an airbrush to first create the base color gradient and then use glazing to bring down dark ridges and bring up light valleys.
A YouTube video showing a, pretty easy, technique for getting exciting and dynamic black armor. The basic premise is to base coat black, airbrush on blue-grey highlights, brush paint edge highlights, and then apply a thick layer of black wash. I’ve found that I prefer to put on heavier highlights prior to washing.
A YouTube video showing a technique for painting aged leather with a lot of depth. I simplified this process for my own leather recipe by basing a chocolate brown, edge highlighting with a yellow brown, then “messing up” the edge highlights with a wet-drybrush of the same yellow brown, followed by a heavy black wash.
