77310 - Water Weird

Recommended Posts

So, I wanted to try my Tamiya clear blue on one of the Bones translucent blue elementals and I chose the Water Weird.

So far, so good but I'm not sure how to finish it off from here.

I'm thinking of trying to get a curly-wave-white-foam effect at the extremities but I'm not sure.

What do you think hive mind?

Looks great! I like the idea of adding lighter highlights to the extremities. Might pay to use light touch (just a bit) and see from there. I'd also add some highlights to the very base of the water where it's splashing out from the well.

Looks pretty great to me I like the dark and light areas, makes it look real water. Only thing I'd try is something to bring out the facial details, subtle highlights though. Or maybe it's just the angle of the pic makes the details not pop as much.

I like the idea of making the base of the Weird more splashy; that seems logical. I don't trust myself to highlight the tips with as gentle a hand as it should have, but I'll give it a shot.

 

The dark and light areas are natural and will change with the ambient lighting. The Water Weird is coated in Tamiya clear blue which is really shiny. So shiny that when I handed the mini to my wife for a look, she only handled it by the base because she thought the blue was still wet. ::D:

 

Since the pic was taken I have given it eyes. I'm not sure about the mouth though, I'll have to have look through my inks and see what I've got. Maybe I can darken the mouth with one of those and then bring the teeth back up a bit.
