Step by Step painting of a Gamezone Cold One
Here's a little step by step I did a while back when I was painting Gamezone figures for CMON.
Once again, it's all about the Shaded Basecoat, followed by a series of washes and glazes.
To start things off, mid tone colors are brushed onto the figure in rapd fashion:
It's important to note that I am using relatively large brushes, working on both the armor and the skin at the same time.
Now I start to lighten my original color with very controlled drybrushing.
This techique of controlled drybrushing becomes even more apparent now, as seen on the armor...
The skin and armor continue to be lightened.
You can see that we are almost getting to the final elements of this stage. I am nearly at my lightest lights...
This is the final bit of the beginning stage. The armor, the skin, and even the skulls and base have all been lightened. Time for glazing!!!
It becomes clear right away how much of a difference the darkening via glazes can create. I am not just making things darker, I am also varying the colors a bit, making my darks alternate between warmer and cooler versions.
I continue the glazing on the armor and the base, making sure that no single element gets too far ahead of the others. This is very important to keeping all the color values and hues consistent and cohesive.
All right, we reach the final stages of glazing. At this point, I will go back into my midtones and pull out some lighter bits, as well as some highlights.
The next post will have the rider! Stay tuned and happy painting!
Here's an update! I thought it would be best just to edit this, instead of making a whole new page...
The rider begins the same way as the cold one, with a middle tone.
I continue to lighten it up, in order to set up the later glazes...
Now we are ready for the glazing!
The initial darker washes and glazes applied...
Now the rider is nearly complete. I have gone back in after the glazes and pulled out some highlights, etc. The cleaner the sculpt and cast, the less you have to do of this stage. The more muddled the detail, the longer your work day will be...
Here are some images of the whole thing together.
