I've been hitting a slump in my painting that's been keeping me from these forums for quite a while. I'm trying to regain my rythm and getting some pieces done. This is one of them: Sandru Vhiski from Reaper Pathfinder Miniatures range. I don't really know why I rushed him up the production line. He's somewhat fitting for a character I'm playing in a DnD game, although yet he's not. Perhaps he's a good fit for a future character? Sadly he ended up somewhat flat.
I'm referring generally to series 331 as well as some of the synthetics, 2230, 2240, and 2250. I guess these things are usually called rake brushes? Anyway, I've got some Deinonychus antirrhopuses I need to paint up and as a bit of an amateur paleontology observer nerd, I'd like to cover up the '70's era scales with something that looks like feathers. I'll probably try my hand at sculpting feathers someday, but not now! Has anyone tried using these rake or comber brushes to paint feathers? Any tips or tricks for avoiding abject failure? (I am okay with most failure, I just have to break out the liquid green if it's abject, I think!)
