I think there must be a thread somewhere about this, but I can't find it.
Occassionaly I paint busts and large scale figures.
Until now they were mostly beastmen, undead and such, just one ( it was my first) human and she had warpaint covering her eyes.
I have seen some stuff about painting human faces on this scale, dividing the face in a yellow, a red and a green/grey zone.
Could anyone explain this some more?
Do you basecoat the face in 3 different colours and then glaze over it with skincolours?
What is the right approach?
And if it is a large scale figure with bare arms and legs, do these zones need to be applied on the limbs too?
I would really want to learn more about this since I have some more busts waiting ( among others, A French Imperial Guard,A Centurion, A Crusader, A Pirate Girl, A Beserker, A Viking Girl, A Hoplite and A Celt)
I would like to be able to paint more realistic faces with shadows, stubble, and such.
Preferable using Reaper and Scale 75 paints. If possible give me a hint which colours to use in what stage?
I would appreciate a nice tutorial or examples, if possible mentioning paint colours/brands..
Thanks in advance.
As if I don't already have enough projects, I can't keep him waiting any longer! This is Nosferatu, a limited edition bust from Green Monkey Models. I have copy 11/50. This sculpt is amazingly detailed, it's creepy and awesome. I'm going to try out some new undead skin tones on this bust and just have some fun. I'll elicit all of your comments and critiques as I go through this project as well!
As you can see he's nearly 90mm tall, a pretty sizable bust. I'm going to clean up the little bits of putty I used to make sure the seams where his arms join his body are smooth and even and then use the airbrush to layer on some primer!
My good friends over at White Wolf Miniatures sent me Sana as a gift, she's an amazingly clean resin sculpt of a female samurai. As soon as I saw her I knew how I wanted to paint her up. I'm going with a Darth Maul color scheme with red and black and I'll freehand the sith symbol somewhere on her armor.
I'll elicit your comments and critiques as I paint her up. Right now I have her washed, prepped, and ready to get primed.
As you can see she's nearly 80mm tall.
This is the second time I have painted this particular model, and I really like how she came out this time. The original concept was of a huntress (druid like) living on the tundra with her wolf companion. She would be using endure elements as part of her morning ritual, and lived very simply. The base was originally going be a tundra style with some bits of snow, but I adjusted it slightly. I see her more from the southern steppes, from a place called the Crimson Plains. Its name comes from a blood battle that last fifteen straight days, and permanently stained the ground a reddish tint. As always, C&C is welcomed.
