FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion with axe removed and battle staff added.

 

FOLLOWUP...This is a followup posting to my (WIP) dated 2-7-2014 and a reply to a (PM) that requested how I paint my black orcs and materials I use.

 

STEP-BY-STEP...This is a brief basic step-by-step process that shows how I paint (my) black orcs.

 

PHOTO 1...My figure is primed with Krylon flat white...first basic body/skin cover is a mixture of (midnight black/espresso/hauser dark green).

 

PHOTO 2...Body/skin highlight is done with a mixture of (dark flesh/medium pink flesh/ac flesh/sable brown)...dry brushed on all higher areas...(let dry)...body is washed with paint mixture of (hauser dark green/midnight black/dark flesh)...(let dry)...body is washed with mixture of (lettuce/citrus/eggplant) artist ink.

 

PHOTO 3...Face done...(eyes are mixture of bright yellow/mint green)...(mouth is mixture of berry red/true red/pink parfait...washed with strawberry ink)...(teeth are a mixture of Wicker white/cool white)...(face highlights a done using pink flesh tone/melon/pink parfait).

 

PHOTO 4...Upper torso leather work is a mixture of (espresso/brick red/burnt sienna/deep burgundy)...washed with midnight black ink...highlights added with (brick red/deep burgundy)...metal work is metallic steel...horns are (wicker white/cool white)...all leather areas are washed with brown artist ink.

 

PHOTO 5...Lower torso work...kilt painted as Russian red bear...mixture of (espresso/midnight black) base coat...wash with jet black ink...highlight/drybrush with (chocolate brown/light cinnamon/sable brown/honey brown/brick red)...boots (same process as upper torso leather work)...sword is a mixture of (metallic steel & charcoal)...washed with eggplant ink...highlighted with sterling silver cream...(let dry)...wash entire figure with mixture of (egg plant/jungle green/night shade) artist inks.

 

NOTE...Since the battle staff is a conversion and not part of the original figure...I will not discuss the painting of it, since each person may have their own taste as to how they wish to paint it.

 

SHOWOFF...I will post the finished figure in the Show Off forum when the painting is finished and the figure is mounted to his base.

 

I hope that you find this short step-by-step posting useful/helpful.
