This week I began painting my Satyxis Raiders. They are a tiny little unit with lots of flesh. As I have only painted Cryx, a lot of flesh is going to be a new challenge so I felt I would document my progress with photos as I learn.
- Primer White
- Paint all the flesh on the model Midlund Flesh
- Using Flesh Wash I accented all the deeper areas of the model and where it met clothing or hair
- I mixed Ryn Flesh into the Midlund flesh, in greater and greater amounts and painted in harsh transitions
Priming white was something new I thought I would try. All of my other models have been primed black. I think it will make the model look more natural, but we will see.
The Flesh Wash was much darker than I thought it would be. I think next time I will dilute it a bit with water.
The transitions between color types are very start when looking close at the model. I will be going back next week to blend the layers and smooth out the painting. It doesn’t seem like this was a lot of painting but I took at least an hour per layer to dry everything. For the first time I don’t have finger prints in my model.
Next week will be smoothing, eyes, blush, lips and I will begin on the hair. I will post the difference in the models as they get painted.
