Painting tutorial : Feathering (pirate monkey painting)

Tags : painting tutorial

Small thumb feathering display

Morning everyone !

Today it's Monday paint technique and i want to share with you a very good tutorial about feathering.

To me feathering is one of the most important technique a painter can have ! ( with Layering and glazing)
I know there a lot of different interpretations about painting technique, but feathering is roughly : using your brush to draw-out paint pigment.

It's really important to really understand the feathering because it's the door to using paint consistency as a way to paint. And it was really the "click" that changed me from scrub to painter. And i am not even talking about my painting level, i am saying that before this "click" it didn't felt like i was painting.

By pirate monkey painting :


Why is this technique important? Once it is learned properly it gives someone the ability to create very nice transitions very quickly. It is also helpful in creating high contrast more quickly as well.

There is 3 way to feather and you can train one or all of them (do as you want !)
-Drawing the paint (or feathering without cleaning)
-Spit feathering :
-2 brush blending (From mike mcvey and Privateer Press)

One extra way of feathering is the : Loaded brush technique by ben Komets but it's really hard i will not touch this.

This tutorial by pirate monkey painting (new american painter that crossed France on a bike ^^) is really well made an touch all 3 techniques.
It's a great start into feathering !

Dilution helper by Mojo

Small thumb 01 dilution white 1000x1000px 2 600x600

Morning everyone !!

Today i want to talk about dilution ! I always struggled with the dilution level i should use when : layering or glazing.
2 month ago, while i was watching a ben komet tutorial, he spoke about the dilution helper tool he made to check paint consistency. The idea interested me and ho boy i don't regret it ! this little tool really helped me get glaze right.

Bough from mojo workshop : https://www.benkomets.com/product/dillution-helper

ps : The dilution helper is coated with soft plastic so you can erase paint once used and the sheet dont absorb paint like paper.
ps2 : i guess you could DIY by printing it and using a transparent sleeve (the one for magic card for exemple)

Big thanks @ Mymearan @ dakka :)

It's still a bit sad that the Errant Questor is only available at Warhammer World - GW, we want more Stormcasts without helmets!

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

What you find when looking through the internet - it's a painting guide for Khârn made by The War Gamer. I think it's really well made, and may be a good help for people who already painted some stuff using GW's Duncen guides.

Anyways, check it out - you can find more of them here:
