View Full Version : pud throwers

As I was saying in the Murtros thread, the fleshtones on these Brood can be somewhat tricky.
Brom uses a lot of classic oil painting techniques in his paintings which can be very difficult to reproduce in three dimensions.
He will coat his canvases and masonite boards with colors that are sometimes complimentary to what the primary fleshtone might be. That means that I will sometimes underpaint my fleshtones with a greyed-down opposing color.
For instance, a mostly green flesh toned figure might be underpainted with brown. I might use a blueish grey underpaint along with pinkish overtones, as was the case with these pudthrowers.

These guys are a little less 'pink' in real life :P
I do believe that the original Brom art had them as a greyish-pink color, with some greens and even blues in the shadow areas...

wappellious, do you use dutch style layering of gray scales before the skin tones? i have seen it done and it looks wonderful, and very similar to what you have done..

I have not heard of the Dutch method, but I may be doing something similar by accident :)
I typically prime my figures with Armory grey primer (unless I run out.. then it's black).
Depending on the type of figure, I will do a variety of darkl washes on the surface. That not only delineates some of the details a bit better, but it also gives a nice pre-colored surface on which to work from.
Of course, my training is in oils, pastels and wtercolors, so all those methods find thier way into my 3D painting... sometimes I layer up dark to light, sometimes it's endless glazes to darken something.
to Gunslinger.. I will have to PM you some images I call "then and now". These are figures which I painted back in 2003, but that I painted again in the last few months. I have to say there is a huge difference :lol: I learn something new with each figure painted. That happened with every painting that I did also...

The more we see the more we learn.

OK.. I will post them...
But beware, these are Reaper and GW figures :oops:
At the time, I knew very little about mini companies.. hence the GW and Reaper.
Of course, I have since seen the Light (or in the case of D.A., the Darkness), and been saved! :D At least 50% of all my painting is DA, and eventually it will overwhelm everything else.
