14528: Rageclaw Slayer - Pingo paints a Giant Werewolf

4 posts in this topic

While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game.

 

This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested.  He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale:

This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics.  I left the base white in order to paint it as snow.

 

Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here.  First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly:

Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail:

Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again:

And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws.  Oh, well, next time.).  I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier:

He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.

In painting some other minis I had some pale blues mixed, so I added snow shadows.  This is two colors: one Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White; the other Phthalocyanine Blue, a very small amount of Hansa Yellow Opaque, and Titanium White.

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      So I started working on this guy back in March, he was just basecoated with the pattern established (which was based on Rhonda Bender's beautiful example.) This afternoon I decided to pull him off of the Shelf of Shame and finish him up. 
      I should've gone a size up on the base. And as usual, my pictures are terrible but I'm tired. 
       
      C&C always very welcome.

      I painted these last October, and decided that I'd paint the werewolf more to match those in Skyrim rather than the usual browns. Between that and Strumbannfuhrer Grauler's uniform it was a challenge in using greys and I was happy with the way they came out. I'm still learning how to use my new camera by trial and error so some pictures are getting too much flash, others not enough.

      I'm going to start a diorama soon to go inside a snow globe. I want to put snow on the base but seeing as I've never done any sort of basing at all I'm not sure where to begin. The base will be the rubber stopper that is the plug to the bottom of the globe so I'm not sure if that will effect anything or not. I've seen something at Michael's/Joann's called "snowtex" and was wondering if that might work or how well it would work?
       
      Any advice as to how to go about this?
