Firebrush Studio

Hi Firebrush Studio! Can you introduce yourself?

My name is Carlos Tobes I am 36 years old, I am a graphic designer and illustrator, but I work professionally in audiovisual production and motion graphics and in my spare time I paint miniatures.

When did you start painting miniatures?

I started at approximately 12 years old and for 6 years I continued painting until I was 18 years old, there I totally left it for 17 years until I was 35 years old, and I started again.

When did you start painting miniatures?

I started playing and painting miniatures between the fourth and fifth edition of warhammer around 1995/1996 with four friends, as you can imagine, the quality of the painting was really bad. After about 6 years collecting, playing and painting, at 18 we gave up the hobby and I have returned to it after 17 years without picking up a brush, I have returned to painting a little more than a year ago.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I find inspiration by looking for references that do not have to be miniatures, they can be movies illustrations … of my own imagination and of other painters.

Which miniature are you the most proud of?

All the miniatures that have been part of this year and a few months of repainting are part of a learning process and each one is important in its own way. I don’t have one that I’m particularly proud of, but I can highlight “AILEEN” from Nocturnal (see below).

Have you ever participated in a miniature painting competition or won an award?

I have only been painting for a year, and I have not had time to present myself to competitions, my city is small and there are no local competitions, so it forces me to travel if I want to participate in any, at the moment it is not my priority, at this moment I am only interested in enjoying each miniature.
