CYCLOPS Posted April 18, 2007 Share Posted April 18, 2007 My first attempt at a Skelelton as well as free-hand - an octopus on the shield. Given I can't draw to save my life and it was my first attempt, I left the octopus without facial features. When I tried to paint facial features, the central of the shield sort of made it look like he had a large nose. A plain representation seemed to work better. I also found it easier to paint the octopus and then black ink outline. Speaking of which, I sort of fell (no pun intended) into painting the skeletons sword by adding black ink to the tips and thought it might look like a sword is being held so I did an outline. Looks better, I think, than holding a plain silver sword. Additionally, I painted over the shield quite a few times as I don't have a steady hand! I used the Reaper bone triad and that helped me quite a bit. I'll need to practise a bit more on blending but the Skeleton came out better than I would have thought. Enjoy! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
