What are MSP red shadow, green shadow and violet shadow meant for?

Recommended Posts

I noticed the MSP line of Reaper paints has three colors listed together in the online store: Red Shadow, Green Shadow and Violet Shadow. What are these colors meant to be used for?

The shadow colors are very good for lining and, alone or in conjunction with a base color, to shading red, green, and violet (among other colors).

As a historical note, there were once three colors called Red Liner, Green Liner, and Violet Liner. They were not sufficiently popular and were discontinued, and later the replacement triad of Red Shadow, Green Shadow and Violet Shadow came along. The liners used to include six colors in two triads. Now only brown, blue, and grey liners are made.

 

The shadow colors are not the same consistency as the old liners were (based solely on what I've read), but are like other MS paints in that respect. Liners are thinner than most MSP paints, falling somewhere between ink and regular MSPs.

I've used Red Shadow extensively for just that, red shadows.

 

I also use it as in the mouths of creatures as well and as a wash over items I intend to be leather. I also glaze tanned flesh with it while working on shadows due to its red tint.

 

Violet Shadow I've used for a glaze on green orc skin & pallid ghoul flesh...and for purple shadows.

 

Green Shadow I used last night as green shadow.

 

When painting shadows etc I tend to thin them down to a wash consistency before applying as an fyi.
