Interesting that you have not done any basing atm. I'm always worried about mashing up the finished model with PVA and sand etc.

(Looking forward to more pics!)


I havn't and normally don't do any till the end, I can see reason to do sanding at an early stage but I prefer not to as my concern would be bits getting into the paint. With this model I have glued the front right leg only. The base very convienently has a slot that allows me to position the wolf around a single sliding pivot on the base. When I have finished the model I will remove it from the base breaking the super glue on the single leg and then proceed with the base on its own which i will also cover later on in this guide. leaving space on the base for the feet to be glued back on when both model and base are finished.

Got some more done tonight, so heres your next installment

Highlighting the base colour.

Image

Body:
I started by concentrating on the body (not the fur sections) adding some of the Burnt umber to the Fiery orange to make it darker and in turn closer to the colour I have been left with after inking, adding a touch of water to get the right consistancy. I applied a thin coat leaving the deepest recesses of ink showing, I repeat this process covering less of the area with each level, working out to the highest and most exposed areas. The first 3 (appoximately) levels I do with the same colour as the first, the second and third coats give the impression of highlighting due to the increasing pigmentation over the area. The last few levels I added a small amount of Fiery Orange to make the colour lighter so when painted it shows a slow progression of colour to the higher areas.

Fur:
After I was happy with the body I turned my attention to the fur. Starting with the colour I finshed with for the body I drybrushed the fur areas with a few levels of colour, this time adding a small amount of Sunburst yellow (gw paint) to the orange.

Drybrushing:
For this fur I used my smallest dry brush 1/8. The method wasn't what I would call normal drybrushing. I loaded the brush so that it was entirely covered in paint then wiped off any major excess, I left the brush what I would call relatively wet for dry brushing I did a single downwards swipe across the fur sections (no mental going back and forth), this way I could control where the paint was going alot more and it meant i could avoid the body I had already painted. I repeated this process across all the fur and again with incresing increments of yellow. Painting less and less lighter colour all the way to the most external or exposed parts.

Next stage also got done, its an easy one though.

The black!

Image

With all my models I have a stage I label as "the Black". It comes when I have done all the base colour and what I would deem as messy work, ie drybrushing and inking. I go round and pick out any detail that still needs painting with black almost as a second under coat. The reason for this other than so I can easily see what I need to paint is so that when I come to paint the detail I can leave a small black line around it to give it definition I find this method is easier than trying to do black lines around stuff after which can result in thick black lines. This for me is the first stage where the test of neatness comes into play, for me neatness is the key to painting nice minis, if you can paint neat every thing else is easy. When I do this process I make sure that everything that is painted black is fully cover and meets the colour next to it neatly even painting very slightly on to the base colour if needs be. I would do this process even if it was undercoated in black.

The model is now ready for the details to be painted but that may have to wait till friday.

At present I think the skin looks too similar to the hair. This may be because of the photo or the fact that it's still W.I.P. though?

I think this is a fair point, remember I still have leopard markings to do on the body section that will make it different again. Also my hope is that the fact they are similar will dring alot of the attention to the head gear when its all painted.
