Mantis Warriors

Using some more fantastic minis from Raging Heroes!  These Demonettes are Mantis Warriors.  Quite dangerous...

I had fun with this filming session, since there were some markings to put on the flesh!

Looks like it's time to start glazing.  This time I used some new colors from Secret Weapon  The Ruby is especially fantastic!  I see myself using that like crazy in the future.  The Amethyst was also very handy.

Those washes mixed in very nicely with 'regular' paint.  It is hard to explain here, but I suppose the film might help in that regard.

Yes, another sketch!  It helped show how the spots were done.

Speaking of spots...

Spots applied!

Then she can join her sister.

I just wish I had time to paint up the rest of the waiting figs to make the whole unit!

Dark Druichii

I had some fun with darker flesh colors when I shot this.  This time, I was using one of the Raging Heroes Fantasy Blood Vestals to create a Drow flesh tone.

The plan is to make a darker flesh tone that has some exotic color elements... a little purple, a little grey, but still with a touch of warmer shades.

Here's the basecoat.

Getting ready for glazing and tinting!

This time a combo of Secret Weapon washes and GW shades.

Shading darker...

And darker.

With that complete, it's time for working in more details.

I actually needed to bake more sheets of sculpey so I could keep doing these 'sketches' on the side.


This set of colors led me to the Mantis warrior, also from Raging Heroes.
