Tonight we have another member of the Brood faction, which is dominated by monsters and other critters. He is standing on a 40mm base, to give you an idea of scale. He is called Mean Jelly Bean, and it was based on the artwork (of the same name) of Brom. I really enjoy his classical style of oil painting, and I tried to replicate it when painting this figure.
This was a version that I did way back in 2003. The colors are not terribly different, but the approach certainly was! My palette has changed a lot since then, and continues to change almost weekly, it seems. :-) I mix a lot more muted pale greens into my golors, along with purple grey colors like the old GW shadow grey.
By comparison, these colors were far simpler, just a variety of browns.
I think I have a few other "then and now" figures like this, which could be interesting to check out...
