Back to metallic they go!
Excuse the random mid-week post, but these guys spilled over form the weekend and have only just been photographed.Back on topic – these guys are back in metallic, with an attempt at (/sigh – odd prhase) “True Metallic Metals” trust me, that is what those in the paint forums call “painting metallics without being lazy and shading it properly”
It’s harder than it seems actually, because while black for instance blends in well to make a dark, shadowed tone, and while washes work well to further dirty down; the bright points don't react well to white, so the brightest silver you currently have on your shelf is the high point of your highlights. clearly I need new paints :)
(damn that stray blob on his hair, only just saw that.. grrr.. *gets yellow paint out*)
Okay so kindof overkill on the pics, but hopefully the point is made, I’m going with this for all these guys then, and hopefully I’ll learn some new things along the way.
Oh, Sarge here has also had that problematic mold line removed, and I'll get to blending in the red next time i have the colours mixed to the shadows.
