    Nautiloid speed paint

    Here is a Nautiloid Chrysalid for DeepWars done in some fast washes, a bit of blending and edge highlights to finish quickly. The shell was two two main colors over a white primer, Burnt Sienna ink (Liquitex) and then when dry, Pthalo Blue ink. The inks on the shell were applied in washes, so covering everything and moderately thick, mixed with Liquitex matter medium and a bit of water to give better flow. The tentacles were Pthalo Blue ink wash, with A Dioxazene Purple wash near the "face". Then the face and thin tentacles got a wash of Magenta ink. Highlights were added with a bit of white mixed with the ink, and some Cerulean Blue ink for the blue, and magenta for the purple areas. After highlights, a glaze of blue ink was added to the big tentacles to help enhance the shadows near the face. The eyes were Indian Yellow (Golden Fluid Acrylics), highlighted with white mixed in. The base had washes of blue, green, sienna and umber ink with a bit of drybrushing with Reaper MSP Golden Highlight. The shell got Golden Highlight on the edges also, and on barnacles. The Weapon was gold with a wash of Pthalo Blue ink, then a glaze of Burn Sienna (just a bit), then highlighted with Reaper shining gold and silver. Some Sap Green ink was added around barnacles and encrusting growth. For gaming figures like this with a lot of texture, using washes and then doing edge highlights is very effective as much of the blending occurs from the washes. The basic highlights on the tentacles were done quickly almost like drybrushing, especially on the suckers. It is still important to do some edge highlights though, using almost pure white, to add contrast and define the parts. The crystal on the weapon, for example, was just a wash of blue ink and white lines on the facet edges. Simple and quick.
