'nids part 140 - Dakkafex goes to 'War'


Bone white highlights added to War


I always seem to think the hard work is done at this stage. The turquoise is a more controlled process, therefore takes more time. The Bonewhite is often less tidy because the lighter colours are more forgiving but they usually take up more surface area so probably take just as long. Although it's less precise there are usually far more fiddly areas, lumps and bumps and I think I leave far more washed areas for shadows than I used to do. Thus the lighting is pretty uniform throughout when I know I should have taken advantage of my shading

    

And I still have all the hard black claw bits and flesh bits and blood/glow bits so it's far from over, just the end is coming into sight.
