All right folks! Time to finish off the last of this shaded basecoat stuff, and get set for glazing and tinting this piece.
You can see that I did some more work on the chain axe since the last post, as well as the face. Precise colors are not important right now, since the idea is to tint it during the shading process. This allows us to make adjustments on the fly. This is very handy when you are trying to match colors from something you may have painted a long, long time ago! :-)
Hey, where'ya goin? Don't run away!...
After all the golds and other metal surfaces are complete, we can get into a nice red accent color!
I mixed the red with a bit of grey to cool it down as it was darkened.
The lighter reds are created by mixing in some vomit brown. This is a good way to get the reds lighter without becoming pink.
As I work on those reds, I also think about some OSL, as in some glowing conduits on the back of the head and under the chin.
More lightening on the reds...
And for those of you wondering about the rest of the set, here are some images of those other pieces...
Just as with Angron, the whole point of what I have done thus far is to make these ready for that dramatic glazing/tinting shading process.
I will post the images of that process after the holiday tomorrow!
Looks like Abima is getting ready for a game of full contact Uno, Wappel style!!
