The other day I was working on a video about what I feel that “art” is and ended up painting this guy for an example I used.
(If you’re interested you can watch that video HERE )
Now to log what I did on the miniature.
PAINTS AND WASHES USED
Cork Brown (MC)
Reikland Fleshshade (Shade)
Agrax Earthshade (Shade)
Blood For The Blood God (Technical)
The main focus of this entry will be on the flesh and gore of the flayed one not the metal bits. That will eventually be in another post.
To begin I base coated the flesh with the Cork Brown. I did this with two thin coats to make it nice and even. Next I washed it with the Reikland Fleshshade avoiding a few of the flattest bits. I mostly wanted this color to bring out all of the folds in the flesh. Once that dried I used a second wash of Agrax Earthshade to make the flesh look more . . dead. I made sure to do this in only rare and random places basically just using my best judgement. Once the shades finished drying I went back with the Cork Brown to bring some of the colors back up and highlight the edges.
Now it’s time for gore. Simple and sweet all I did was glom the edges of every bit of flesh with some good ole Blood For The Blood God. I did my best to avoid quite a bit of the middle flesh bits on this part so I wouldn’t over do it and I’m quite happy with the results.
All in all this miniature only took about an hour and a half from start to finish.
Not bad time for the results.
