well i finished up the metals and details and got him based and gloss and dulcoted..turned out ok.the shading on the blade on the back worked better then the front. Over all I'm I like him..not my best but pretty good without spending more time on him then I really wanted to. :)

Next up another Empire of the Dead kick starter exclusive..Tom Gaunt!..not sure his story yet(waiting for the pdf to be updated..but looks like a vampire hunter to me! While cleaning up the mold lines I broke off the whip accidentally..so I tried pinning and gluing it back together..seems like it will hold but I'll have to be careful

got all the basecoat colors applied except the metallic..used the lone-star leather for the duster and splattered crimson for the shirt and hat sash,dusty flesh for the pants again. The last thing was the blond hair..which.was a drop of alien flesh,sun yellow and a small dab of oiled leather. I think i'm gonna work it more towards grey I liked the white primer looks better honestly. Right now he looks abit to much like the crazy swed from Die Hard.

I'm sure the bandolier is suppose to be shotgun shells but they really do look more like shells from a grenade launcher LOL

I got all the metal bits painted with the darkest shades of metallics then I used the secret weapon colored washes for the most part to shade everything. I've been making my own washes from the LTPK directions for a while and figured I'd go back and try and see how these work vs making your own.

For the Red I used one drop of Red/Black +1 drop of Softbody black. for the Jacket 1drop of sewer water+1drop of softbody black.As well as the hair.For the wood stake and gun stock just straight sewer water. for the pants I did use a drop of duskyskin mixed with the black since i don't have a premade shade that works with it .and abit of flesh wash under the nose in the eye sockets and deeper cheek and under the chin.

I started doing the facial details..using blacked brown to line the eyes and the iris's and linen white for the whites of the eyes.
built up the facial highlights using the tanned skin triad from shadowed as the basecoat color up to tanned highlights.

for the hair I added more grey to the blond mix for the first highlights and linen white to the mix to work up to a more grey and white hair color..with just a hint of sandy blond left to it. I don't know why but I like it better with grey hair..


I've been wondering if it isn't time I start trying to paint in some eyebrows on figures like this or if its kind of redundant.

I think for the rest of the figure I'm gonna work smoothing the midtones from the shadows and then go directly to highlighting that same section vs doing all the midtone clean up before highlighting

thx cash! and ya Monkey I agree the fun thing about creatures is the uncanny valley is easier to deal with vs Human mini's which we instinctual focus on things that are missing(..or I do at least heh) If I'm feeling brave enough I'll have to try and do the brows.

 

spent some time highlighting the red from the basecoat color of splattered crimson up to fresh blood. I think thats enough..I don't' have a brighter red that isn't a pink.
after that I worked on the coat..building the midtone back up and blending the edges of the shading then building up the highlights from lonestar leather to tanned leather.
I think its enough..i don't want to washout the darker color completely.

next up the pants I think..but gonna leave that for tomorrow.

used the same process as the last one to clean up the pants not to much to highlight, just tried to give it a bit of a crease highlight since that seemed to work on the last one. for the leather bandolier and whip I worked it up from ruddy leather to oiled leather.
used some algae wash on the shotgun and some runefang steel for highlighting the metal on the gun and the shells..as well as some new gold for the top of the shells..
Think tomorrow I just need to work on the blacks(gloves,shoes and hat) and it will be done.

thx!

ya know honestly, there was a point where I thought I ended up with to many shades of brown, after buying all the LTPK and the KS1 paint kits..HA! was I wrong..

 

and I knew i had to do the scarf on the hat red once I saw the figure..the shirt kind of just happened cus I couldn't really figure out what it was suppose to be by its sculpt so I just went with turtle neck and figured it would help tie the figure together having something else red.
