Bones II 92680: Swamp Troll

Recommended Posts

This one started out primed with Reaper Brown Liner (not shown).

 

First I very thinly washed color over it, green on the base and two shades of blue over the body, allowing the Brown Liner to show through.

In your first images I always wonder what on earth is going on, and by the end I'm blown away. Can't wait :P

I put a great deal of subtle greens on the base (and some on the troll), but it appears the only picture I took of the process was this one, highlighting a nice little touch on its base, a fish skeleton.  You can see a bit of the greens and golds and russets I used to blend a convincing terrain.

I had an ivory mixed up so I painted in its teeth and eyes.

This time I worked in almost all purples (and a bit of yellow).

 

I mixed a transparent deep purple from Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta and washed it all over the troll and the rock, or whatever it is, on the end of its club.

I brushed on some lighter violets and painted its eyes.

In photos the figure looked good, but on the painting table it looked like shades of black.  So ...

 

Today I worked mostly with assorted different blues, bringing it lighter...

... and lighter (with some medium purple added on the creature and the club end) (oh, and at some point I washed some grubby brown over its teeth).

Thanks!  One of the more amusing but true comments I saw about my work recently was that it starts out looking like a mess, and then over time I pull it together.

 

I hope it gives encouragement to other people to try things and experiment and not to worry if it looks goofy at some stage of the process.

 

Anyhow, I washed some dark brownish-black over the creature's club and its shadowed areas.

And then I brushed some grey-brown old wood color mixed from Raw Umber and Titanium White over the club.
