Flesh and fur

7 posts in this topic

I started on this last night.  Flesh tones have never been my strongest skill.  So far I'm happy with the way the face of the model is turning out.  The veins on the arms... ugh.  

Im hoping to more or less complete Krug today.  Ambishious project for me anyways.

 

I'm thinking about making the hand wrap on the left hand bloodied?  Suggestions?

 

Any tips on fingernails?  Usually I'd scmere on some off-white, but that might look a little cheesy.

 

thanks

Matt

Yeah, his face is QUITE nice.

 

As for the rest of his skin, maybe once you've got it up to a basic level, get some basecoats done on the rest of the model so you can better judge what need to be done.

I like the dark wash in the fingernails, makes them look nice and dirty. For the nails themselves I would try a yellowish off-white like reaper's yellowed bone.

You could glaze on fleshtones, but I'd work on the eyes then fur first. Great job!

Well, here it is.  It's not 100% done, but given my one-day timeline to finish, it turned out better than I expected.

 

I have some of the skin-tones in my wet pallet.  Hopefully they'll last a day or three.  Id like to fill in the holes in the models back.  If not I may try to make some green-stuff paper clip arrows.  I haven't made up my mind just yet.

 

Id like to brighten up some of the metal bits around his waist, and chest.   They're a little dark for my taste.

 

Revisiting the left eye is also on my list.  Honestly you can't (well I can't) see the wonky eye without magnification.

 

looking at the pictures I might have some tweeking to do on the fingernails yet too.

 

All in all I'm pretty proud of today's work.  I'm half tempted just to finish the base and call it good.  We'll see if my miniature OCD will let me though!

      While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not.  She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>

      77265 - Drys, Dryad
      I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle.  The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : ) EDIT - front of dryad:  https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA
       

       
      77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
      Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure. 
       

      77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
      This figure is very... uh, purple.  But I think it works well.  I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be.  But still a lovely bit of work.
       

       
      89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard
      She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes!  This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
       

       
      89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
      She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )

      My first mini of the year!  I had my eye on this one for a while and it did not disappoint.  C&C welcome.  Enjoy

      It's simple math, really.  Ranged Attack + Improvised Weapons = Hill Giant.
       
      He has a bag of fun, yet likely horrible stuff:
      ...and he's taken care not to trample any of the local flora, at least not yet:
