All up in your business, eating your, erm, apples?
These were both fun to paint, but for for different reasons. Both set of miniatures were painted with extensive use of wet-blending.
The Giant Rats
These guys were really quick to paint – the fur was done mainly with wet blending (dark on top to light on the underneath and faces), with some washing and light dry-brushing for highlights.
Looking at the photos, I wish I’d painted the eye sockets a darker colour now , since the eyes don’t stand out enough.
They were fun to paint as they didn’t take very long at all and I was therefore pretty pleased with the end results.
The Giant Worms
These took much longer than the rats to paint, mainly because they have lots of surface area, and some of it is hard to get to. Also, the topside and undersides are very different in colour and texture.
Painting the bright purple and oranges was done with extensive use of wet blending; with the purple I mixed in a couple of other colours to give them some variation.
Sadly, I had to repaint quite a bit of the orange/yellow on the underside of the worms – i got lots of purple paint on my fingers and got purple fingerprints all over the orange. Doh! The fixed orange was just not as good looking as it was on the first pass before the mistake.
