The wings look amazing. Very realistic in an unrealistic way. Loading... Reply heresyofus March 16, 2016 Cheers! The wings were really fun to paint, I wanted an unhealthy fleshy look. Loading... Reply Remnante March 17, 2016 Gorgeous! She’s another really nice model. Your painting is really nice, any tips? 🙂 Loading... Reply heresyofus March 17, 2016 Thanks! I like to use a very limited palette and apply the paint thinly and loosely building up the layers. I also make use of inks a lot in my painting and of course washes ( where would we be without those 🙂 ) I never concentrate on one area at a time so I get the colours moving through the whole model. Oh yeah, and very rarely have clean water to wash my brushes. I like the homogeneous effect it creates. Also I find you should never be afraid to try different approaches, like her tattered robes for example, I slapped a load of watered down yellow ink over the base coat of bone and sepia wash and then did the same to the wings. It gave a nice weathered green effect, which I then highlighted up and added flesh washes to. Like with modelling experimenting is fun! Loading... Reply Remnante March 17, 2016 Thanks for write up! Sounds interesting, I’m hearing of more and more people using inks and unusual mediums when they’re painting there models; I think I’ll have to give it a go myself 🙂 Loading... Marcus March 17, 2016 Sweet paintjob! Very blanchean feel(which is great) The colours on the wings are great Loading...
