77366: Shadow Hound (WIP)

Recommended Posts

I purchased the Shadow Hound in Kentucky and was painting bits of it while in the hotel. The initial plan for the mini was to paint half of it and leave the other half translucent. Now that I have a base coat and some colors on it, I'm not too sure. Perhaps if it was clear translucent instead of purple it could work? Please let me know your thoughts.

You could use some Tamiya Clear Gloss to make the rear part more translucent? 

Sounds like some shopping is necessary. :D

Alternately, could you darken the creases of the back with opaques for a mixed effect?

Like what I have done with the left arm, but less coverage?

Something like that, yeah. Or more focused in nooks and crannies, leaving the peaks translucent. *shrug*

Interesting idea!

And what if you bring the solid paintjob more to the red/purple spectrum?

Something like, take blue liner and thin it , then apply it over a small area. With a second fully dry brush, absorb the areas that would be highlights, allowing only the dips and crevices to take the tint. Basically a "controlled ink wash" will help define the shadows and still leave the translucency.

      60181: Adowyn & Leryn (Iconic Hunter & Wolf) painted in Autumn palette with NMM, Texture, and Freehand. This was another miniature full of fiddly bits to paint. After watching Bobby Jackson sculpt on the Reaper LIVE show, I think this was a digital sculpt! Looking forward to seeing this miniature in the BONES version.

      Here's my 2018 Ghoulie Bag translucent smoky grey 77636, Death Shroud. I simply did a blueish highlight and painted the base on this Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Julie Guthrie.

      Hi everyone, here's a simple paint job on a translucent version of 77096, Labella DeMornay. This model was sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I painted it with green ink and acrylics.

      I sculpted this wolf for Darksword last spring.  I got a couple copies of it last week.  Friday night, I decided to paint a version of it for a friend's 11 year-old girl who is crazy about wolves.  When asked how she wanted it painted, she said tan with black stripes and spots. 
       
      That took me a bit to get my head around, but I took the challenge and here is what I painted.  It took me about 3 hours.
