How About A Black Triad?

Recommended Posts

This is in no way an official post, so ignore the word 'Reaper' by my name for this. ::):

Seeing as how I'm 9000 miles away from Reaper, I can't say for sure, but looking at the different pro-paint blacks, they sure look like master series liners to me, or at least very close. ::):

Mentioned this in another thread, but will put it here as well--the new "blacks" in Pro Paints are similar colors to the MSP liners, BUT they are the same consistancy as normal paints, thicker and more opaque, not more fluid and translucent like the liners.

 

I may do a blacks triad in MSP's, but have not decided yet if one is strictly needed...if I want more "body" to my Brown Liner I just add Walnut or a drop of Pure Black. :;):

I usually use the Walnut Brown is a warm black as it is.

 

I've read that some (including Derek?) use a mix of the Blue Liner and Gray Liner as a cool black.

 

So, I'm not entirely sure that a black triad is really needed.

 

On the other hand, a Mediterranean (olive-ish) skin tone triad would be most welcome. ::):

I'd be on board for more skin tones, absolutely! I find the Tanned triad to be kind of cold and would enjoy more of an orangey-brown skin as well as the olive suggestion.

I use the 50-50 mix of gray and blue liners a fair bit. Now that I think about it a little... Mr. Creepy Feet saw some of it, but not much as he needed somewhat warmer shadows so instead of Blue liner, I used brown. :devil:

Hey, if we're talking more skintones, I'd like to mention middle eastern. You could even call it Khamsin Shadow, Khamsin Skin and Khamsin Highlight... ::):

I've got several black armored figures on the table, and I would really like a Black Triad. Right now I use Vallejo for my true blacks and off blacks, but much prefer MSP.

Way, way back in the '70s I was on a tour in the IBM plant just north of Boulder Colorado. There I saw a color chart showing IBM's 21 different shades of black. :blink: We neeeeeeeed a black triad. ::D:

Quick reply re:

 

Olive skintone- base color for it is in the new Pro Paints

Black Triad- will probably wait to see how they do in the Pro Paints before I make my MSP decision. ::):

Brown Liner is my black. It is smooth and very dark after two coats -- at least the batch of paint in the bottle that I have. I don't think I've even opened my Pure Black for months. When I've wanted something darker/colder than Brown Liner (such as lining for steel or silver NMM, or the base coat for the iridescent black dress of my Bourbon St Sophie), I've just added Blue Liner 1-to-1.

 

Overall, I don't think that a black triad for the Master Series would be useful. Just add a drop of some other color to the black of your choice (Pure Black, Brown Liner, whatever) -- a similar reason for not having pastels ("just add a drop of color to white").
