OK, for those of you who have seen the post on how the big light in the center of the tomb was covered, you are familiar with the "dais" that Cathy suggested. It was great, and it gave me a nice blank canvas on which to do a design.
I had the perfect one in mind... it is the one that I used on the bases of my big chariot unit. Here is the image:
So, I got started by laying out the design:
I then worked in the colors I wanted:
The scarabs also got some color:
Now some lighter shading:
At this stage, I started to bring in my fluorescent colors:
Then it was time to get some lights into the other areas of the design. There was intentionally some gold left of this design, to show that not everything is completely tainted.
Now some cracks are added:
Tomorrow I will post the images that show how this looks with the rest of the upper level, which also got some attention with the brushes!
Yikes! Not much time left, and lots to do. Of course, much more will be done in July on the army, but there are things I definitely want completed now...
Here are the rest of the weathering pictures on the obelisk and the back wall. At this stage, I was adding some bleached out color to the glyphs.
I was also darkening the edges of each section...
Since I wanted to keep the colors very limited, I added hints of reds and blues.
The hope in adding the reds and blues was to highlight the differences between the Empire and Bretonnian characters.
You can see the initial cracks painted on the walls...
Once I added those extra bits of color, it was time to weather them down even further...
I had to make sure that all three sections matched each other...
Here's how the day ended. I will be doing more highlighting on the edges of the cracks and glyphs in July!
