Welcome Grimdark Painters!
The Grimdark Compendium Masterclass is here to teach you how to streamline your creative process with our “Method Development” technique to get the most out of your time at the hobby table. Learn how to take your painting inspirations and ideas from just ideas to fully recognized and well-developed painting, modeling and weathering recipes, and application processes. You’ll never get stuck with access to a masterclass exclusive Facebook Group of experts and peers ready to help and give feedback. Break through creative skill ceilings with our “Understanding and Application Studies” technique and learn how to take this knowledge and forge your own take on the Grimdark Style.
As each week passes, I will show you the process that I use to take a project from concept to complete; all while you are following along, doing weekly assignments, coming up with your own ideas, executing them, getting weekly feedback from peers, and me, and by the end of the 10 weeks, you will have your very own fully completed project…or the understanding to do just that.
Before the first masterclass starts, Friday, August 27th, 2021, here’s an assignment and some information to help you along the way.
Join The Private Grimdark Compendium Masterclass Facebook Group
The Grimdark Compendium Masterclass Facebook Group will be a private group hosted on Facebook. The group’s intended purpose is to give constant and lifetime support to the Grimdark Compendium Masterclass participants. Once you have signed up for the Masterclass, you will receive an invite to join the group and may remain a member for as long as you like. I encourage all members to be forthcoming with feedback and support for their peers.
I look forward to seeing you all there!
A Note on Available STL Files, Practice Blanks and Bust
There will be footage of me working with 3rd party figures in the Grimdark Compendium Masterclass, including the “Dark Space Warrior” Bust and custom practice blanks I had made. These products will be available to purchase for a limited time on one of my partner’s websites in either STL, 3d Printed or Resin cast form. Participants should note that purchasing these items is not required, and not having them to paint during the masterclass will have little to no impact on your experience in the course.
However, the project I will be personally working on during the Masterclass will be a reposed Nasgash. So if you want to follow along and replicate my project, then rest assured all the pertinent information will be available for that build, including the reposing work. Before you run out and buy a Nagash or pull it out of your pile of shame, please understand that the assignments associated with the Masterclass will focus on the participants coming up with their own projects to work on during the 10-week course. The project that I use to demonstrate the methods is just an example, and I encourage you to work on your own project to benefit the most from the Masterclass.
