Among the many challenges there are in becoming a good mini painter, I've found getting flesh tones right to be one of the most difficult. I spent quite a bit of time trying to achieve a realistic look on the Ettin. I think I've made some progress - but lots of room for improvement. (I found the following video to be really helpful in understanding how to paint flesh tones: )
Hey all! Been a while since I took pictures, but I got a batch done yesterday, so I will be putting a few threads on here over the next couple days. Thought I'd try to start strong; I love this mini! There is a weird thing on the sculpt that I noted in the Bones/LE forum section about the rope on his back disappearing into his shoulder, but it seems to be built into the sculpt, so I kind of ignored it and painted around it like everyone else. Of course, now that I look at my pictures I didn't take any back shots anyway so there's no real reason for me to have just said that. Really tried to push my layering with the flesh on this, I think it shows in the face coloration and flushing around the lips and nose, etc. C+C always welcome. Bonus points if someone can identify what book's inside cover is being used as my backdrop...
So I'm painting up Nor'okk, and things are going swell. Finishing up all my bigger basecoats first as I tend to. Then I get to the details and noticed this fella has a rope going into his arm. What's going on with this? I hadn't really noticed it in pictures before, so I looked some up. Seems it bothered other people as well, as most of them had taken pictures of the rope hiding behind something like his club: It almost makes sense from this angle, too: But here, in the full back view, the upper right shoulder clearly has a rope going into it: Pretty unusual, looks like Tre just forgot to finish this rope? Not sure my green stuff abilities are beyond making simple rocks to decorate bases and patching obvious holes, so I'm kinda stuck until I wrap my head around the disappearing rope. So, yeah. No real point to this thread I guess. Just something I noticed.
