Mangu Timur Miniature Painted by GamerBiscuit
Mangu Timur Miniature Painted
Hi All,

I always enjoyed painting miniatures when I get the chance to. I got this guy as my main character for a D&D campaign I recently am a part of (Not the one I am DMing.) Sorry for the quality of the pictures. 

The paints are a mix of using Citadel Paints and other brands of Acrylic like Plaid, FolkArt, etc. I tend to like to buy things that are affordable and figure out my own method of madness. I prime my figures with acrylic mix with some parts water / flow improver / matte medium. I tried Acrylic Gesso before and I like it a lot because it forms against the figure and doesn't hide the details much, but it can tend to peel easily if your not careful or sealing right away. 

Original Model from Reaper…

My best friend saw that I was trying to learn some Zbrush and immediately told me to do a Goro from Mortal Kombat.  Credit goes to creator of the original goro I used for Reference material:…

This is what I came up with so far with what I know about Zbrush and this is my work in progress. This is definitely challenging for me and it is forcing me to learn more about anatomy. I want to start watching some anatomy videos. :)

Hope you guys like it! 
Male Head and Torso Bust by GamerBiscuit
Male Head and Torso Bust
2nd Attempt at Zbrush. Learning a little bit, watched a couple of tutorials. So far love working with Dynamesh. I think this is a huge improvement over my Orc Head. I exported the render, depth, and shadow into Photoshop, combined them, messed with levels, and cropped to get the final image you see. 

I remember struggling a lot a few years ago and didn't get into it. Now, I'm falling pretty hard for Zbrush. 
I've been in the mood for painting a lot lately. I think the break is a little over done though ... I think I've been away for a year with little drawing/painting. I haven't been doing anything other than working, eating, sleeping, and taking care of my responsibilities at home. I miss painting a lot.

I decided a few days ago to get back into it, I'd start painting small. From what I can tell, it's taking a bit but I'm still trying to get the hang of painting digitally. Surprisingly enough, the tutorial I followed of the Human Eye turned out much better than I anticipated for my skill level. From there I guess I should just paint, paint, paint!

Short term wise, I'm thinking I just want to be better. Long term? I haven't decided. Before I had a goal in mind; I wanted to be a concept artist. My problem was both finances and taking away time from my kids and girlfriend. Is it more of a hobby? Hard telling. What I want seems so far out of reach. I suppose it might just be my mindset, but reality hit me kind of hard. There are so many talented artists out there; the chances of me being noticed I think is pretty low. 

But I decided that I won't be afraid to keep trying to draw and paint. I'll work my 45 hour a week IT job, and continue to support my family. But to support my needs, I 'need' to paint. I can feel it that it's in my veins. Someday, I hope to unlock my full potential. Maybe, just maybe, someone will take notice and my art work will make people smile. Make people gaze in awe, be inspired. Someday, I'll be able to communicate to people how I feel. I want the world to know that I exist, and there's a place in the world for me.
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Eating: My thumb

Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
I am from the Chicagoland area. When I was in high school I had taken all the art courses I could to delve into my fascination with drawing. Life happened out of high school, and I had taken an 8 year hiatus. Finally, I've decided to follow what I was once afraid to do and grow to become a concept artist/freelance illustrator someday. I have always been fascinated with concept art for video games and film. I have recently started my journey to try to pursue that and am trying to learn everything I can about the art. I am now an online student of Academy Art University of California to receive my BFA in Illustration. I am looking for any training, mentorship, and guidance to direct me towards that goal and become a better artist, make friends along the way, and become a better person.

Absolutely! Love your stuff. Trying to learn Zbrush stuff myself. Loving it so far. My first bust I did didn't turn out so well, looks really waxy. But the second one I did turned out much better I think :D
