Graveyard Expansion Ghost

Recommended Posts

1st time poster longtime lurker :) 

Its my 1st time working on a ghost mini and I am looking for some advice. I and using the white basecoat then verdigris technique to try and paint this guy up but I feel like there is something missing from it. I also feel like the I need to do something with the center hollow part on his front side. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance all!

Looks good so far.

 

Advice is depending on what kind of effect you want.

Anyway, you could darken the inside to create a shadow effect and bring out the green more.

 

Maybe a walnut brown?

Speakin' ex cathedra from out of my hat, if it was ME, I'd put a heavy green shade in the hollow... and then do a couple of red glowy eye effects inside the hood.

In fact, I think I'll go do that now. You's an inspiration.

Welcome to the forums! ^_^ Looking good so far!

 

So if I were working on this guy, I would do a dark navy blue in the hollow part, with pure black only in the very deepest parts, as that will give it a bit more visual interest. I would also take either Moth Green or Alien Goo (both Reaper paints) and thin them out to work into the highlights to give a little bit of an otherworldly glow to him. (Any sort of "neon" green or yellow would do - or you could take the green you used and add a really bright yellow to it.) Then I'd take the same navy blue from the hollow, thin it really well, and work it into the shadows. I would also take an olive green and work that into the shadows for some variation there.
