Guest Post - Damon Drescher - Seeking out a Crystal Brush


A big thank you to Damon Drescher for putting together the original guest post for my blog, and a bigger thank you to Figure Painter Magazine (FPM, for short) who will be adding an adapted version of the article to one of their upcoming issues. I'll be taking it down from here to ensure they have the deserved measure of exclusivity. As soon as the article is available there, I'll link to it from here. I'll also be keeping a couple of Damon's photos here ; )

Figure Painter Magazine is a great, and eminently affordable, resource for all painters!

  5. Wow! Not only is the finished piece so impressive, I really appreciate you walking us through the process of the design and build. Thank you Dave for the post, and thank you Damon and good luck on the Crystal Brush.

    1. I have to add that the metallic areas are particularly impressive as well. It does not look like just one tone of silver. There is a masterful highlighting that really breaks up the monochromatic metal look. It adds a lot of visual interest, it is no longer the area on a model that "falls down." But it does not detract from the primary areas of 2D color, it provides a backdrop that makes the color stand out even more.
