You really nailed the fur on that guy. I especially like it on his boot wraps it offsets nicely with the leather wrapping color you chose. It also works really well with the grey tunic. Eagerly awaiting the words describing how you came to paint that fur



Yup, I want a fur tutorial too.

Thanks all!


I really wish I could help you guys but the magic ingredient is beyond me....

Base coat is GW Codex Grey, with a high light of Fortress Grey. (This I am sure of)

the next thing is that I used an ink wash to give it that color....

the problem is, it is an ink wash that I mixed myself for some project, and didn't write down the recipe!!!! :down:

I have a tiny bit of it in a 5ml(?) bottle....

I think that I need to SCIENCE! a bit to see if I can re-create it....


(It is likely some sort of black ink mixed in with Liquitex transparent Burnt Umber....)

at least that will likely be my start point....

(Didi's Magic Ink, Black, Inktense Black, GW Black Ink, and some Secret Weapon washes are the likely canidates for the black....)

I am pretty sure that Secret Weapon Stone Wash is a component though....

Not sure why she has so much glare on her....


There may have been other touch ups here and there that I can't remember....

I need to update these after every session, as I cannot keep a painting journal, My WiPs are my journal....


Thanks for looking!
