  • eh?

  • What's going on, guys?

  • Uh, I guess I'm not building anything.

  • I don't need to have my computer quite so far away and usually want to give a few war minutes before actually kicking off this toe.

  • Let some other people kind of role in.

  • But I got stuff to do today, so let's just get it going here with this.

  • Uh, I was going, guys, Good morning or good evening.

  • Wherever you are in the world, we're gonna give this a try.

  • Doing gunplay, critique live.

  • I think the for what we're doing for this video.

  • I think it works better alive.

  • So, like I said, uh, if the people whose work we're looking at our live in the chat that it can be a little bit more of a conversation that could be back and forth, I can give feedback and they can respond to the feedback.

  • If I have questions about it in real life are in real time.

  • They can reply right away.

  • But on the other hand, um, not it's not super comfortable.

  • I think this would work.

  • Doing it live a lot better if I had an actual computer with, like, two screens doing this on a laptop where I'm trying to juggle around watching the chats.

  • And also, you know, I need to pull up the images and share that with you guys.

  • This is kind of a lot of things to do on this very small screen anyway, So Good morning.

  • Uh, got some coffee.

  • Ah, and we've got four works to look at today, so I'm going to go in order of the is.

  • So bear with me a moment while I get these open up because again does, like, save all the images separately.

  • I need to also check their emails because they did also provide some information in their e mails.

  • So if you guys are unfamiliar with this video, Siri's or just if you need a refresher Ah, this is serious that I started doing as a as a reward for some of my patron patrons, just as something that I can try to do too.

  • Give back to them some kind of direct critique, and it works for I think public audience as well, too.

  • You guys can see some cool works and then just kind of see, you know what goes into that?

  • So all right.

  • So this 1st 1 is from, uh, we're gonna take a look.

  • As from Jonathan.

  • Let's see, I've been building models for only a couple of years now.

  • Ah, cool.

  • Issues that really dog me are mixing colors and posing and photography.

  • Okay, so hey, says Jonathan Thins only been building models for a couple of years and he said that the issues that he thinks he's struggling with or dealing with at the moment, our color mixing and the posing and photography.

  • So he sent some photos here.

  • Ah, of his yacht Doga.

  • Ah, so let me see.

  • This would be Ari kiss.

  • So he's got a painted Are ya Cadogan?

  • Now, can I, um uh, open these all?

  • See, we're going to do it like this.

  • Download them all at once.

  • Now, maybe you should have downloaded all the pictures.

  • Ah, separately.

  • But it's okay, uh, the mood on that ahead of time, but it's all get let's go ahead and just down the ideas.

  • All right?

  • And open those.

  • So it's gonna be, uh I think you like trying to do this.

  • These videos live, I think, is the better way to do them, but gonna maybe take me an episode or two Thio get it sorted out.

  • What's gonna be the best way to actually do that?

  • But in the meantime, thank you guys for your patients.

  • So let's see.

  • Is that okay?

  • It's open and we can take a look at these.

  • Okay, Open and take a look at this.

  • Here.

  • See, um, it's gonna be window capture.

  • I'm also just not very good at using O b s.

  • It's yes.

  • It's another thing to kind of allow me some patients.

  • Here we are.

  • Ah, let me just resize that so you can get a good idea over here, please.

  • Thank you.

  • All right.

  • There you go.

  • Ok, now you guys can see that and I can see that we're all good thing, right?

  • Okay.

  • Eso Ah yes, Spider.

  • Your i o b s is no.

  • Doesn't seem to be easy to work with.

  • Sorry where I'll stay in the Kadaga here and now.

  • My first impression is that I like the colors.

  • Ah, I like the colors.

  • Anyone with obviously he's got this Ah, metallic green and gold like the main colors and then some black, which looks like it's not like a metallic kind of black.

  • It's just, like kind of, Ah, just a regular black.

  • It looks like and like, um, semi gloss is not super matte.

  • Finish on that, but I assume it's either a map finish or a semi gloss tha, but it's probably mad.

  • It just kind of looks like it's not SuperDrive super flat finish.

  • Ah, I would say, as far as the painting goes, the painting it looks really good.

  • Just kind of going to skim through these first just to kind of have a look.

  • Er, And on a note of for this photo, I know that the kid has seen lines on the top of the shoulders to the sea mine rule.

  • It looks really good.

  • I don't see any seem remnants there.

  • It looks like that's well taken care of.

  • And I like, especially if you're gonna do like metallic finish like that.

  • There's any imperfections.

  • It's gonna show a lot more obviously.

  • So you have to really make sure you clean up your seam lines really well.

  • Uh, so at a glance so far it looks like all the paintings.

  • Good.

  • A couple things that jump out to me right away is that.

  • I think there's a couple places like here on the shield bits on the side of the shoulders, that word.

  • But maybe he missed doing some pen aligning, you can see did do system panel lining around on legs on the shields.

  • That's all penalized.

  • But then, like on on the binders, I should say the blinders on the side of the arm a little bit missed pen aligning their on the inside of the binders.

  • I think maybe a missed opportunity to bring out some of that detail like the little details on the inside of the binders There.

  • You're just giving that some dry brushing just to kind of bring out the edges of that or the scene.

  • A little bit of hand painting just painted in some of those little details they're on the inside of the binders can beat us.

  • A nice way to just bring out the details.

  • You, uh, when you've got a lot of nice details that like that, you want to make sure that people are going to see him, and it's not, you know, just the main kid, but gonna be able to look around and kind of catch all these little details all really cool.

  • And it was all just one color.

  • It's just not as visually interesting there.

  • So like that part on the inside of the binders there Ah, and yeah, I think just some panel ending, like, here on the front, on the hose cabling around the mid section Pendleton.

  • And on that we just helped to kind of break up seeking see the kind of links of that easier with the penalty in between and then, like on the the thruster bells there and that nice silver, but just some black wash in there, just thio to find the details within that nice silver finish on that.

  • So I would say that as far as I can tell, it looks like the painting work all looks quite good.

  • I'm not really seeing any issues with the painting at all.

  • And it looks like you did some pre shading.

  • Ah, but yeah, it's kind of hard to tell if he's done that as appreciating or as post weathering, but it looks like appreciating.

  • I'm gonna guess for at least, like under the gold and under the green.

  • But again, it looks like on the binders, it's not so much.

  • So it looks like maybe, Ah, the binders are maybe not finished.

  • Uh, but as far as I could tell from what he said in the email, uh, he didn't mention that it was not finished.

  • I would also say that there's, uh, a good amount of decals here and there, but I could use a few more.

  • How many details you wanna put on a case is very, you know, up to your own taste.

  • How far you want to go Just a couple or adding more.

  • Ah, I would personally added a few more here and there because you've got a few, like in kind of the the important points here, there, like around some of the important details.

  • But I think it could go in and add a couple more.

  • Um, yeah.

  • I mean, as far as this, uh, I think like the painting is probably the best part about this.

  • Uh, so far, it looks like to me the golden that Mattel agree and look really nice.

  • Actually, I really like those.

  • Ah, and the decals they does have on there I'll look really nice, like the placement of them.

  • And they're not uh, they're not silver at all or anything.

  • So the decals I'll look like those were done.

  • Well, the panel lining that is on there is also done.

  • Well, it looks like, uh, like said, it looks like there's just a couple areas that I maybe go in and would finish some of the panel lighting on.

  • Just bring out some of the little details, like on the inside of the binders on the backpack of some nice details there.

  • That thing could be brought out on the gun.

  • Maybe a couple of things, you know, like painting.

  • Let's see, It was a good picture of the gun.

  • Ah, this might be the best one we have.

  • Are here that, like hoes there on the top of the gun or a little wire not hose out of nowhere.

  • Whatever.

  • Cable on the top of the gun, like connecting to the top of the gun to the camera, they're just like painting that different colors, things like that.

  • One thing I would say.

  • And this is also just gonna be kind of a personal thing about the mask, because when I worked on this HD kit years ago, I didn't like the I details on there like that kind of molded in, I details.

  • So what I did is I just feel that in with Putty.

  • How's that?

  • I would say it looks a bit odd that this is just all black, but you can still see the details there.

  • So I would say if you didn't want to have that detail there, then I would recommend doing like, kind of something similar to what I did is just filled in with party and just get rid of the detail.

  • Because there it looks like the details there, and it's like it looks unfinished like they're supposed to be something they're like, Maybe you're gonna add in some painter or something there.

  • Anyway, it looks like it's a and then on the front, there's like a little square bit that looks like it's supposed to be like a kind of camera or something.

  • But just the fact that those details aren't painted in are filled in with anything.

  • It just gives the gives the appearance that it's maybe not finished or something.

  • So I would say just plenty those in sand and send him over.

  • Get rid of that and just make it just like all one solid piece I think would look good in all black like that.

  • Like how he's got it or, uh, you know, fill in those details with whatever something like that.

  • So ah, and then as far as the posing of Harvey, I think the photography also looks fine.

  • The pose.

  • I know this is not the easiest kid to pose as much as I love Ari kids, and I do like this kid as well.

  • I know it's a little bit of a tricky one, especially with the shield attaching onto the back of the arm.

  • If you want to show the shell in the front, you kind of have to do this kind of weird, awkward pose there with the arm, but just kind of your standing, posing suggestion, I would say.

  • Just trying the legs a little bit wider and, ah, the torso a little bit more forward and also the angle that it's holding the gun to be just kind of straight, you know, in line with the arm.

  • And then Cocteau elbows out a little bit.

  • I would say, Well, the elbow that's holding the gun to a cocktail about a little bit with the gun in line with the arm and ah, the shield.

  • Just kind of how it is.

  • This is fine, because, you know, like, like just by design is not a whole lot much else you can do with the oven like that.

  • So I think that's fine.

  • Just changing angle of the way that's holding the gun, adjusting the legs a little bit, I think the posts, you know, it's not that bad.
