Another one in for the weekend. BATTLE REPORT! This one was a scheme i saw on a YouTube artist's channel named CatGut. Odd, yes but his painting and tutorials are great. Saw him do a coconut crab on a Tyranid for Warhammer ad thought I'd give it a try. I really like it. Wins: * colors were pretty straight forward: orange brown, German black brown, and white. Easy! * laying out the color map was also nice and simple. Had to work around a few bumpy spots, but nothing terrible. * spent less time than my previous crab, which i thought was going to be more. Dotting was faster than i expected. Misses: * Didn't follow the method exactly. Dots are inconsistent. * not a fan of having done the legs all the way down. Should have done less on the appendages. Not bad, but could be better. * need to finish off the mouth and eyes still. Wish the eyes could stick out, but they are going to probably be just black. This was a fun one to paint and the instructions from his video was excellent. Now i have two very distinct crabs. Yay.
