Moogles Backscene Painting Tutorial
« on: June 07, 2013, 06:48:27 pm »
Why a backscene tutorial?
I though when planning to paint the backscene on Esling that it would be a good idea as there's nothing on here like that.
I hope it is of use to some members and that some may even be tempted to take up the brush and have a go.
Must apologise for the sound quality being a bit poor in places as I only have whats on the camcorder.
Also for when my hand gets in the way!  :laugh:
Used more footage than I thought it would take in the end.
So, its in six parts as follows:

Part 1) Painting the sky and clouds. 24m:12s

Part 2) Adding the hills. 15m:09s

Part 3) Painting the road. 09m:04s

Part 4) Adding the details. 26m:07s

Part 5) Painting the beach. 24m:45s

Part 6) Adding the sea. 23m:17s

Hope you enjoy them.
If the quality seems a bit poor, let me know and I'll see if I can improve it by uploading larger versions.  :wave:

Many Thanks for taking the time and the trouble to do this Moogle.  :thumbsup:

I'm downloading from youtube as we speak so as to watch at leisure with the ability to stop and repeat as I go.

Well done, great video's.  It certainly makes me want to have a go at doing them myself, but I'm sure it isn't as easy as you've made it look! :thankyousign:

 :thankyousign: everyone.
You're welcome to download them to watch/refer to - that's the whole idea!

Well done, great video's.  It certainly makes me want to have a go at doing them myself, but I'm sure it isn't as easy as you've made it look! :thankyousign:


It is and it isn't.
I've been drawing and painting since I was a toddler so I probably do make it look easier than it is!  :laugh:
I've put some pics of a layout I built 20 odd years ago in a thread.

This had my first ever painted backscene and whilst its not bad its not anything like what I paint now!
So have a go, you never know...
