Bones II Frogmen (Squog Warriors: 77268 )

Why didn't you use a wash or a glaze?  A wash on the body and then a clear glaze on the eye would make all the fine detail you put into this tiny guy pop so much.

I'm not quite sure what you mean. It sounds intriguing. Do you mean some sort of color wash over the frog's bodies?

 

As for a glaze on the eyes, do you mean a layer of gloss protection without matting it down?

Well, I did something new.  I took done minis and mucked with 'em.

 

I decided to play with gloss and matte finishes.  So I put a thin layer of gloss on the frogs, then painted matte over their weapons and loincloths and cockleshell armor, then put extra gloss on where needed, especially their eyes.

 

Ironically I found it difficult to photograph to show the glossiness.

Those shells are crazy realistic!

Thank you.  They are tiiiiiiiny!

 

I found a picture of some shells I really liked and tried to recreate the effect on the frogs.
