Happy New Year to everyone! Among other things today, I worked on some bases. These were all going to have similar colors, so I set them out, and began to put down my lighter colors. Not only would all of the shading be done with a series of glazes, I was also going to tint various parts of the bases as well.
The initial layers I painted were all very simple... some vomit brown alternating with a little Vallejo green sky. I tried to keep it all as similar as possible, so that you could see what some glazing can do in this situation.
You can see on the right that I have a few glazing colors out... a black, a sepia, and a green.
My first glazes were more about establishing those color variations. You can always shade darker with further layers!
Here are a few images showing these first layers.
After those colors were established, I darkened the shadow areas some more.
Just to see what I had, I painted the black around the edges of the bases. From this point, I will go back with more middle tones to create even more color variations.
Once I finish off those last bits, I will post the pictures for you :-)
