03627: Stieg Brinegrog, Pirate (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Was attempting tattoos and didn't like the mess I made. I started over by dunking in simple green (regretting that decision). Attempt #2! I should document my progress, this should help push me. Using grey primer because I can't find my white primer.

 

09299: MSP Core Colors: Grey Primer

Sunburn. Hmm... I should figure out a way to clean up that mold line on his right arm. I just noticed he has no nipples. Uh...how do I paint them on? Or do I cover with a tattoo?

09401: Dragon Red

Gloss-coat the mold line, then repaint the sunburn. It will smooth the mold line a little bit at least. 

 

I vote to paint on the nipples. I had to do that on Angry Dwarf. How? Pick the color of the aureolas, slightly darker than the skin. Then one step darker for the nipple. That'll do the job in a simple fashion.

Forgot about the sealer trick. It's looking better. *thumbs up*

I'm happy with tonight's progress. Did I apply too much paint on the skin? There's also something about his eyes that throws me off.

Notice me captain senpai!! *sparkly eyes* He's no longer the grizzled pirate I am imagining.

The eyes are simultaneously really good, and really big for the socket. I think that your method is spot-on, but would do better if it was shrunk down a bit. However, they look good, and they're symmetrical. Keep them! He's now a "staring intently at someone" type of pirate! 

 

Hard to say regarding the skin question. The application of paint seems good, although it seems like you changed your mind from the sun-burn to the tan? This guy has so much muscle and gut that you'll be able to do some serious shadowing/highlighting on the skin without it seeming like "too much". Heck, if you're going for tattoos, the amount of contouring he has is going to challenge you to add bits of shadow/highlight to the tattoos as well.

Ah, the sunburn was silliness from myself because he was painted red. That was just the undercoat for the skin to give him a more healthy tone instead of ill/undead tone due to the grey primer. Yea, I'm thinking I'm biting off more than I can chew on the tattooing, but we shall see!

 

It's kind of fun googling sailor tattoos. There are some NSFW images there as well. O__o.

Meh. The worst to happen is you end up stripping it again. More likely, it goes mostly well, and you do a few skin touch-ups along the way ^_^ 

 

I too am finding that painting can lead to some odd and NSFW google searches. For my necromancer woman I tried looking up bandaged arm wounds - that was a bad and gory idea. Googling snake tattoos was a bit less disturbing.

Looks nice.

 

Tattoos, the trick is to paint them on, then glaze over them with the skin midtone.

Keep doing that till you are satisfied.

By glazing the skin over the tats it will look like the tattoos are embedded in the skin instead of painted on.

 

Glaze..thin..repeat after dry etc...

First freehand! Wooo! Tattoo on the back! The front sail will have crossbones on it tomorrow night. And the front sail looks crooked. Oops?

Now who is going to tell him his tat has a crooked sail...  not me!

 

This is adventuress for sure... Are you going to glaze some skin tone over it to give it that under the skin look?

Two lessons learned while attempting to glaze the skin.

1) I should wait for paint to dry.

2) I'm now positive I have no clue what a glaze looks like.

 

Fixed the tattoo (kind of) and moved on to painting the pants. Will attempt to glaze again.

      I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.
       
      Ron let me paint this lovely sculpt by Gene Van Horne.  Actually, I think I might have begged to paint it and considered stealing it from his office if he refused.   She'll be in the Greek Odyssey Expansion for Bones V.  If by some miracle you have come to this forum and not heard of Bones V, it can be found here.  Aaron Lovejoy was awesome and took some high definition photos of her after last Reapercon.  
       





       
      I really love this sculpt, can't say that enough.  She's got some fantastic detail, lots of good open space to work on blending or freehand, even a scenic base to play with stone effects.  While I loved the original Yephima by Patrick Keith, and still use her in my classes, this one really screams warrior to me.  I need to paint my bones version when I get it as Athena. I'll have to add a shield somewhere, though. Maybe convert the club to a spear.  Decisions decisions.
       
      Anyway, feel free to ask questions.  I'm happy to explain or help with anything!  I'm going to post the WIP pictures I have in another post, so hopefully those will also be useful.  Enjoy!
