    Hey Guy's,
    I finally got around to painting the Centurian's feet and sandels.

    Sandels.

    Undercoated with Apple Barrel acrylic Burnt Umber,

    1 - Base= Mars brown + Alizzarin brown.

    2- Memium shadow = Windser blue added to base mix.

    3- Deep shadow = pure Windsor blue.

    4- Medium highlight = Mars brown + Mars orange.

    5- second highlight = Mars orange + Naples yellow.

    6- Extreme highlights = Naples yellow.

    When dry I will give it deeper shades with glazes of Windsor blue and more enhanced highlights With glazes of Naples yellow, and into the oven at a temperature of 140 degrees for a couple of days.

    weathering is done by applying a couple of controlled washes of Raw umber.

    Looks great Roc! What mixtures (assuming it's in oils) did you use for the groundwork and or rubble?

    Hey Roc , nice work my friend. I know how demanding this figure is since I painted one. It got me a bronze in Glasgow 4 years ago. It's still in my website if you want to have a look. Anyway , again beautiful stuff !!!

    Wong,Daniel,Rob,Jason and Stephen, Thanks a bunch for the nice comments,much appreciated. :)


    Jason, the ground work is not even close to completion.
    I use celluclay mixed with water and elmores white glue to an oatmeal consistency
    to which I add acrylic raw umber to tint it.

    I give the base a coating of white glue,and then I apply the Celluclay mixture .
    While the Celluclay is still wet I sprinkle a mixture of sand and crushed kiddy litter
    to the base.

    Next I will put in several types of dry vegetation which are obtainable from floral shops, and stones an small rocks here and there.

    For grass I use hemp rope and deer hair cut to different lenghts as to represent patches of uneven grass.


    After the ground dries I will give it more washes of Jo Sanjo's Raw umber .

    Apple barrel country tan acrylic is dry brushed with a flat brush for highlights.

    For extreme highlights I use country tan with white mixed into it.
    When completely dry I will give one final wash of raw umber,to pull every thing together.


    Stephen,
    I saw your Centurian on your website,and it is truly a beautifully painted figure.
    Keep up the good work.
    Roc.
