The creatures are coming along very well! Frank shows us a few tricks to bring out the sculpture’s details, and how to make those eyes pop. (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)

  1. I really want one of those pig looking creatures you are using in this video. Where can I get one?

  2. Anybody else receiving the “this video isn’t encoded for your device” error when trying to watch this video?

  3. I would really like to see a direct link from the video descriptions to photos of the final builds/paint up. Keep up the good work!

  4. Here’s what I’ve been working on. Will and Norm convinced me to buy a Printrbot, so I made my own buildings. I found a cheap place to print giant rubber mats with my own cobblestone images on them. And I’ve been playing with Arduino boards to control the railroad scale lights. I’m very much inspired by you guys! http://imgur.com/a/Aipxq

    Time for some steampunk minis!

  5. I love making stuff while I watch you guys make stuff. I do not however like when i get distracted and stab myself….

  6. My favorite part of all these videos:

    Frank: I’d do it this way.

    Norm: That sounds great I’ll try that.

    ::: Norm does something completely contrary to Franks advice :::

    Norm: I don’t think this is working.

    Frank: Oh its not so bad, we can fix it.

    Repeat X100

  7. i actually cant get into that game. Splinter Cell and the Batman games are my go-to games. Been a while since we got a new Splinter Cell though….

  8. I love to draw during these videos, but when I looked at norms pig at the 30 minute mark all I could think was please make it a bioluminescence pig.

  9. If you’re using NoScript (or other white-listing plugin), I find that I have to allow JavaScript from “94890ooyala-a.akamaihd.net” to watch the videos at times.

  10. I noticed a lot of grabbing colors and working right from the bottle. Maybe in future build you guys can talk and show a bit about mixing. I’m about half way into this one and think Norms could pop more if he stayed with a single color and worked up lighter and darker values of some of the same colors to pull it all together.

    Might be useful for others to see mixing colors and showing differences like cools and warms of the same color. Fun stuff.

    I love to draw during these videos, but when I looked at norms pig at the 30 minute mark all I could think was please make it a bioluminescence pig.

    Ditto, not sure why, but guessing maybe its the burble of the air compressor and the chatter, but it just seemed like the thing to do since I don’t have a model to work on either.

  11. These videos are super helpful. Just watching you guys and hearing the conversations.

    I wondered if there was a list of all the supplies you guys are using for painting. Are you using the same airbrush paint for drybrushing and washing?
