'nids part 23. Tyranid Prime Tutorial, part4

The Prime's nearly complete now, just some more to do on his 'liver' coloured bits. I did a thinned down Mechrite Red wash just to stop it being too brown, and make it more fleshy. I'll be trying to add some highlights to it all. The turquoise chitinous bits came out well. I suppose it helps when you're using new paint prushes that actually draw to a point and don't resemble an old broomstick!


The base also needs to be done and all the boney bits picked out as well.


Here's the original prime so you can compare and contrast the paint styles. This one being at the very begiining of my Tyranid painting endeavours and the lashwhip sybling at the very end.
