Elouchard Posted May 12, 2006 Share Posted May 12, 2006 Hi all, Just finished this guy and mostly happy with it. Some things turned out better than others. One of the things I'm trying to do is cut down on the dullcote and see if I can keep my colors from getting muted. The dullocte does make for nice photos but the color loss is not good. Anyhow, the reds are mainly red, purple and chestnut inks over a basecoat of a light orange, highlighted with yellow. So the steps are zenith prime black/white, skin orange, highlight/drybrush yellow-orange-white, glaze red ink, glaze purple ink, glaze chestnut ink in some spots. I mixed a little mattle varnish in with the ink to make it flow better but I'm not sure I like the muting of color. Gloss varnish works better to keep the colors. Maybe I should have gone for NMM this time, I don't know. Eric www.lonebrushman.com Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
