'nids part 8. The Tervigon Tutorial part 4.

Here we are at part 4 of the Tervigon Tutorial. As you can see a bit of colour goes a long way to understanding the nature of this beast. You can see that the PlastiKote Ice Cream undercoat is very pale indeed [under natural light]. Ultramarine Blue was used on all the 'hard' bits, although I usually do super hard bits black, like claws, hooves and talons [though I did blue feet on this for some reason].

All the fleshy flexible bits, like claw joints, embryo sac, mouth etc. was done in a 'liver' colour. The first Termagants I did were very pale indeed, it was more like a wash, you can see the difference on the Strangleweb Gant. Here, the mix of brown, black, red, blue, and bonewhite got a bit 'chocolatey' shall we say. A bit too thick but it's a nice contrast.

Here, you can see the miracle of life what it's like when a Tervigon sneezes a Termagant out of it's abdominal nasal cavity ;) As you can see the extra height of the slate just made it possible for the gant's feet to rest in the sac aperture. Any lower and it wouldn't have fit in.

Next up, washes...
