This video contains the basic fundamentals to get started in the painting of figures to scale.
This first part is divided into 11 chapters:
The unboxing of the product, the description and handling of the tools most commonly used in the preparation and painting of miniature figures.
We will learn to detect and eliminate the imperfections of the manufacture of the miniatures.
We will also see how to strengthen the joints between the different pieces that make up the kits, the preparation of supports for painting and thus avoid touching the figure and how to apply the primer using an airbrush.
We will learn how and how much to dilute acrylic paint depending on the results we want to obtain: painting base coats, making smooth transitions between tones, applying glazes, etc.
We will study how the overhead light affects the figure in order to paint the lights and shadows in the miniatures following a logical and ordered sequence of steps.
We will end with an introduction to color theory, where we will become familiar with concepts such as: primary colors, secondary colors, tertiary colors, analogous colors, complementary colors, and color temperature.
We will also observe a series of basic rules that will be very useful when mixing colors and will help us to lighten and darken the different tones with which we will paint the figure.
