    This is the third guy for a fantasy scene I have in mind.
    I have used a yellow undercoat because he is going to be green and painted in oils. I will be using a brush on/wipe off technique..which is covering the yellow with a dark green oil mix...leave a while..about 30 mins..then with soft clean brushes..gently brush the oils off until you start to expose the yellow underneath..just enough to give see through yellow highlights. Then let dry..overnight then start to add more shade/highlight..this way it won't dirty the original oil green and you have more control. I'm using oils because I want the guy to have a sheen to his skin. Post more pics later. Figure is 54mm 1/32 scale

    Great mate - a technique I sometimes use, I also sometimes add a little white spirits depending on the effect I need/want sometimes not.;)

    I like the technique ..as you can use it on all colors with the relevant undercoat...works great on metals too.

    Good start to an interesting figure

    You are a brave man! assemblying him first and then painting I did this figure earlier this year and had bits of him on cocktail sticks all over the place!



    Do you find it easier to do it this way?

    Cheers

    That looks VERY good...hope mine comes out as well....I suppose I'm a bit of a sadist John...yes..I always fully assemble my figures first...I find it helps me locate the natural shadows...under arms..between legs etc...I just like to paint in one piece as much as possible....plus I'd only lose bits if it was separate..another piece rattling around inside the vacuum cleaner..!!!

    HI Steve
    Glad you like him he was fun to paint and made a refreshing change from the usual military stuff

    Know what you mean about bits and things getting lost I have a light coloured carpet in the area where I work and its a devil to find little bits when they escape on the carpet!

    My other half is banned from hoovering up in there! must be almost a complete figure somewhere in that carpet!

    Look forward to seeing how your figure progresses

    Cheers

    I'm quite new to fantasy John....military guy really..but it makes a nice change to paint something any color you want.the freedom...!!!!
    My carpet is quite plain..but what the vacuum doesn't get.....the cat does...!!!
