This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.
Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set. So so so much to paint still.
Here we go. The necromancer.
I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo. That stuff has terrible coverage. Chalky. And thinning it makes it take forever to dry. Not a fan. Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."
I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works. I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't. She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.
It's the weekend again and that means it's time to paint!
I feel my mountain of plastic is still pretty big but in looking at the spreadsheet for how many I've painted, i can see I've made good progress.
Here's another one that needs to get based and completed.
All in all i think the colors worked how i had hoped. I keep challenging myself to really put thought into her colors before starting. It helps guide me and make better choices on what's where and also have my paints ready on the palette so I'm not hunting.
* pale flesh with 2 layers of flesh shade is a good foundation to build up from.
* The green in the cape came out okay. I still thinkni need to thin further. The jump between pale sand, which i used to lighten, was a big one when mixed into green.
* The yellow accents were cool and worked across the model.
* green, purple, yellow triad worked to bring life into this one.
* i can't figure out why when i look at this one it seems sloppy? I invested time to be neat, but it just didn't show like i hoped.
* after getting nearly finished, i realized there was areas i didn't paint: sleeves between cloak and bracers, arrow feathers, breast skin. Do then i had to go back and try to do carefully.
* The arrows look terrible. I need a good method on arrows to look good when they're all still in the quiver.
Here's her progress photos.
This is such a beautiful sculpt! I spent a lot of time just looking at it, thinking. I did not really achieve my vision, but done is done. This small dragon is applealing enough I may do another some day when I have more time to devote and hopefully more skill. Trying for a tropical look, stated with parrot colors, but that didn't work - and this was where I landed!
