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

Looks really good.

I think the left rib cage area you are concerned about is a non issue.  It has a good contrast with the dark spot in the armpit, so suggests light is hitting hit chest brightest in that area.  It could also suggest a fur coloration variation in that area.

 

The eyes give a sense for night vision predator.  If you want you could glaze over them in red to give that evil look, or green to sell the Wolf eye reflection of lantern light at night.

@golldanthanks for asking.  

 

the process i use for the mouth is a tan or brown layer first all over (including teeth).  Then go on with DR purple ink. Then go back with BCA pink mixed with a little of the original tan for the mouth on the tongue.  With the teeth having a grimy look, lighten up to bone white.   

 

It's been my go to recipe lately.  If you want a wet looking maw, it's the way to go! 

 

If you don't want that sheen, drop in some matte medium and bring it down. 

 

Hope that helps.
