Who wants to be a werewolf? Raise your hand.

It's the weekend, so you know what time it is...

 

BATTLE REPORT!

 

Along with all the Bones 5 I bought, there was a special on some Zombicide minis that were just too good to not buy.  This is one of the many that are in there, and I'm stoked to get this one done.

Wins:

* Continuing my use of drybrushing and being very successful.  Did an overbrush this time to start with a dark brown.  Then drybrushed to orange brown.  Then lightened up to buff.  Worked great!

*  Saving the last color for last - flat flesh.  I mixed this with matte medium and watered it down to kind of filter it and just use it to highlight the base colors.  Big win!

*  Went back around with some nuln oil to darken down just the deep recesses and area between the muscles.  Starting to use the washes sparingly and only in very specific areas.  Also getting a better grasp on using which wash for what job.  

*  Used Agrax Earthshade to create a transition between the fur and the body.  Win!

*  The fur was the same 2 base colors as the skin, but then lightened up with gray.  Then taking the gray up another notch with white very lightly.  Then EVEN LIGHTER adding white in peaks and areas near the face.  

*  The mouth is a combination of brown, then a purple ink, then breast cancer awareness pink mixed with a little of that purple to get the tongue.  Looks nice and dangerous!

 

Misses:

*  I had another hard time with the nails on this guy.  I didn't want them dark, nor did I want them too dirty looking, so I had to use something lighter.  I feel like the grey is a fail, but it blends in.  

*  Eyes were a mix of bone white, gray, and black dot.  Not impressed with it.  Something ominous and glowing would be better. 

*  Got a little carried away on the werewolf's left ribcage.  I was using the drybrush to find the volumes, but thought, hey that needs some highlighting.  Wrong.  Right above the ribs there's a bit too much buff color.  Wah wah.

 

This guy came out great.  Even with a few errors in there, I'm super happy with the results and love using the matte/paint mix to blend in.  

 

As always - I love and grow from any feedback.  Send it my way - I gain a lot from it.20210807_180721.thumb.jpg.f8ed46668cf5ad2516fa3312d6726ef0.jpg20210807_180654.thumb.jpg.ba72241c5afd02d471896d902b8279df.jpg20210807_181803.thumb.jpg.d921052a2acc18f3d05bd0171743abb7.jpg

      We're only about 3 months away from delivery of the Bones 5 (so stoked I can hardly contain myself) and there's A LOT coming.  
       
      I stated in another post that I'd like to get through as many as i can.  I also know burnout is a real thing to be prepared for.  I don't know if this is a thing somewhere in the realms of Reaper Forum already, but would anyone be interested in getting on a weekly painting group to try and knock out the same minis?  I figure if anything it will at least be a means to keep on top of the painting and also encourage, inspire, and grow from the group effort.  There's a lot of logistics to be worked out, but if anyone would want to start something up with me, I'd love the company on the trail. 
       
      Here's my general stats to see if you're in alignment: 
      Usually take about 1 to 1.5 hours on my minis.  
      Intermediate painter. 
      Nothing pro-level, just painting for fun. 
      Love to try new techniques.
      I find working with others is more motivating for me than on my own.  
       
      Who's interested?

      This little guy is just a background piece so i wanted him to be simple.  I picked his color scheme to use red and green.  Someone mentioned to try shading green with red so i thought, why not?   His tunic is green shaded with red. 
       

       
      Testing a new style of painting with the deep shading around the eyes (because i wanted to be lazy... don't judge me).
       
      Would love your feedback.

      Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing.  In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.  
       
      Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun.  I figured this gross figure needed a green belly.  From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple.  Challenge accepted. 
       
      I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple.  Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots.  Still wanted more.   Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin.  Worked well. 
       
      For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works.  I'm digging this color theory thing. 
       

       

       
      Here's the progress photos.

      This one took a lot more time than i planned.  2.5 nights of work.  The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint.  Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult.   But i did it and it's done. 
       
      Proud moment for me is the eye.  
       
      Done!

      This one is taking me forever! 
       
      I'm at a standstill with doing this eyeball. I also can't tell if i need to change the weird yellow i did around the eye.  I'm also struggling with the pumpkin lights in the heads.
       
      Overall I'm struggling and need suggestions. 
       
      Here's where I'm at:
