    Hi, guys.
    A clamp tweezers, and the work with CA is clean, nice and easy ;) Two layers on both sides.

    Gee, Kev, thanks!

    As you can see, the color of the shirt ranges from dirty sand to faded blue, so it will be grayish with a shade of blue.

    I added some steel blue to the base:

    And a group photo, for comparison of the shades of shirts, because the Britt's one was clearly lighter, even in black and white photos. The face will have to be compared in the same way, because everyone had a different carnation. But I guess it's ok:

    Thanks, Phil.
    I like him, too. I like all of them.

    Meanwhile the shirt. Various blues and grays wet blended:
    PA210301.JPG PA210302.JPG

    I will not change the base color. I've been thinking about getting it dirty with some gray sand, but I'm afraid it might not turn out too well. Besides, the rest of the team is fairly clean. So I guess the only thing left for me to do is turn up the contrasts, the deepest shadows and the brightest highlights. And that's it.



    Stay safe, friends.

    Hi M

    Nice to see the colour going on the shirt , your right IMO , I would just work on the contrasts, highs and shadows , possibly outline the pockets and collar edge

    Any chance of showing which blues you used to get that colour

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    Of course,
    PA220303nowy.jpg

    ;) I hope it'll help. Generally, mix of steel blue and fenrisian, with little touch of light grey.

    Britt will be the only one in a used shirt. He was sitting on the ground in the first scene and we will remember him like that:
    PA220311.JPG PA220312.JPG PA220313.JPG PA220314.JPG

    Tomorrow I will finally focus on contrasting.

    All efforts for naught. Stripping the paint off the shirt, that's probably my secular tradition ;)
    Here, after seraphim sepia shade:

    Gosh, a piece of demon's kaka.

    From L to R: light grey, fenrisian grey, ushabti bone.
    PA230316.JPG

    Ushabti bone + agrax earthshade/seraphim sepia maybe?

    That shirt is a difficult colour to actually pinpoint. Sometimes in the clips it looks very pale blue/grey and other times it has a more pale dusty brown shade. Difficult call, but you will get it right I'm sure.

    Hi Marcin,

    I think you need to adjust your colour mix.

    These were the screen shots that I used as a reference:-

    Britt - eyes.jpg Britt 1.jpg Britt 2.jpg Britt 3.jpg Britt 4.jpg Britt 5.jpg Britt.jpg

    The first one was purely for the eye colour.
    The way I saw the shirt, it was a very faded light greenish-grey, and generally a bit mucky.
    I kept adjusting the light green that I started with until I got the colour and shade I wanted.
    I can't remember exactly, but just looking at it, I probably used light grey, white and a spot of brown for the adjustment. Once dry, I applied a sepia wash and sponged it off.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Hi, Andrew.
    This is only the first layer, only the beginning. Painting shirts takes the most time, I always wait for the paint to dry well, try not to use a hair dryer.
    Seraphim sepia - Citadel shade (glossy, because very fresh). PA250292.JPG PA250293.JPG


    As for dirt - I decided that it would be without it. I'm more focused on recreating the color of this shirt as much as possible.

    Same mixture (more gray this time) as a filter. Base with black in the recesses. Wet mixed now. It's starting to look good. PA260299.JPG PA260300.JPG

    Keep safe.

    Thanks, lots of work done here.

    Meanwhile, I adjusted the contrast and aplicated nuln oil in tucks, because they are nice and it is worth making them visible. PA270309.JPG PA270307.JPG PA270308.JPG



    And since I've gotten to the point where I can't do anything anymore and can spoil more, I leave it as it is. Finally, after painting the skin and details, I'll come back to fix something.

    Thanks, Phil.

    In the daylight it turned out that I still had to smooth the color transitions on the shirt. The right sleeve came out fine, so did the back. Left sleeve and front to improve, I will use gray glaze to bring it out.

    Heavy Skintone VGC:

    All of them. I think Britt should be quite tanned, though not as dark-skinned as O'Reilly.
