I'm working on painting a tribe of wolf people and this is the second guy I've completed (first one here). This is also the first custom base that I've made.
Funny side note: Early on in painting this guy I posted on the works in progress board asking for opinions on what is hanging on his foot. The conclusion that we came to was that it was some kind of buckle which apparently the sculptor of this piece (Werner Klocke) is obsessed with. As I kept painting I definitely started noticing the abundance of buckles across the various leather straps. It just made me laugh every time I discovered a new one.
Anyway comments, suggestions, and criticisms welcome! Thanks!
I painted this Karzoug, Runelord of Greed for a friend of mine to use as his climactic encounter in his campaign (yes that one). Tried to make him awesome, eventually chose to leave some of the freehand edges out, cause damnnn... Still I am quite pleased with him.
The GM said we needed a nosferatu, so here we are.
This is Reaper's 02867: Matthias the Twisted, a gnarly rattish vampire.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
(I have to remember that I experimented with a cold blue-grey wash on some vampire figures that avoided all the nice warm undertones.)
I paint vampires with stark white skin, shaded with flat greys mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. This is almost the only time I ever use such a simple mix for greys.
The first layer is a thinned white (blodginess is the underpainting showing through).
Steps in shading:
