So I was experimenting with Taimaya clears and I wanted to share what I've painted so far.
I think the colors come out a little dark, but I love the jewel like gloss they dry to.
I am going to get me some Taimaya clear (with no color) and some Taimaya thinner and keep expirementing.
The Ghostly Summons has a few layers of Golden Glow over top to start building up some highlights.
And so does the NightSpectre.
The WIP is here:
A little less see-through than I'd like, but the light still passes. There is glow in the dark medium used, but it's not very effective, and would never come into play anyway.
I had so much fun with my slimes I decided to do a few more translucent minis I had handy.
These are the Grave Wraith and Nightspectre (somewhere else I have a Ghostly Summons 77095, Labella DeMornay 77096, and a spare Spirit 77098 that I will paint another time).
I wanted to do these quickly, so it's ink mostly - the same ones as with the slimes, plus maybe a few darker phthalos.
I've done a coat of glow in the dark medium for each (photographed), a coat of the not highest green, and picked out the skeletons in the nightspectre with a wash of medium and brown liner and base coated the grave wraith's sword and tombstone in a dark blue-grey. not photographed
Eventually everything will get a drybrush of spectral glow (and maybe another, mixed with maggot white, in a few spots).
For the nightspectre, I'm going to try and treat it as a fire and get darker going out. With the wraith, I'm going to go lighter out from the bottom centre. Plus highlights for both.
The goal will be for them to be mostly translucent (and glow in the dark, because everything gets that medium). Hopefully I'll figure out how much direct light, and how much medium I need to be able to photograph this.
Photos later today in subsequent posts.
Starting with the last, and my first NNM sky and earth NNM.
I know the shield line is the wrong angle, I should have gone way more horizontal, but I wanted pictures of how good it looks now.
She may o on the shelf of shame, for all her beauty.
I'd love some feed back on her BTW ...
Second to last. this guy was a lot of fun, but not sure about the chest armor.
Others - some better some worse:
Ill update with group shots either all the bones, or possibly all the figures I finished this year (80ish?)
I think I have two more batches to post, so just enough to last me until Friday. I love the translucent bones, great fun to paint and super fast. Finally got around to painting up the nightspectre and I don't think my Grave Wraith has made it on here yet either, so here they are.
