The past few days I’ve been spending an hour or so painting in the evening, focusing on the Ork skin. As with all well planned paint jobs, I’ve found that I wasn’t happy with the recipe – although the colour was vibrant, the highlights were too stark, so I’ve been re-working the skin via glazes and washes.
I’ve been holding off posting as I wasn’t happy with where things were, but in the interests of being active, I thought I’d post where I’d reached.
The refined skin recipe so far as applied so far:
|Prime Zenithal||Stynylrez Grey|
|Prime Zenithal||Stynylrez White|
|Pre-Shade||Biel Tan Green|
|Wash||Biel Tan Green|
|Mid Tone Layer 1||Warboss Green|
|Mid Tone Layer 2||Skarsnik Green|
|First Highlight||Skarsnik Green + Flash Gitz Yellow|
|Final Highlight||Flash Gitz Yellow|
This has wiped out the highlights in the photo below, but I prefer the tone of the colour now in comparison to how it was (no photo of the prior stage I’m afraid!):
Please excuse both the iPad taken photos, and the fact that the Agrax Earthshade is still wet, but I wanted to catch the Liverpool vs Roma Champions League match, so I rushed!
I think the next step is to re-apply the highlights, and maybe add some muscle fibres in to add some interest.
