Glazing over Chiaroscuro brushing
This is not what was planned for this piece at all. I wanted to work out a new bright scheme for my terminators by using this piece as a test run for all sorts of different colour ideas. I imagine he would have ended up looking like a Slaanesh terminator if I had gone ahead as planned but I didn't and thankfully he doesn't.
I began testing Graveyard Earth on one of his shoulder pads and it was such a subtle effect that I immediately painted all his armour the same colour and from there kept the subtle theme going by using similar and progressive colours like Desert Yellow, Bleached Bone and Bubonic Brown.
Chair - Delvan Mud
Eagle - Delvan Mud, watered down Brown Ink.
Armour - Graveyard Earth.
Chalice - Bubonic Brown.
Skulls - Space Wolves Grey.
Jewels - Brown Ink.
Skull - Bleached Bone.
Cloth - Scorched Brown and Red Gore mix.
Wires - Catachan Green, small amount of Camo Green.
Parchment Paper - Desert Yellow, Bleached Bone. Text - Scorched Brown and Chaos Black mix.
The first four images are from Codex grey to Skull white. the above image had some shaded areas painted with additional black and some highlights with white to tidy things up.
Tallarn Flesh glaze's
Some more Tallarn Flesh and some Tanned Flesh glazes.
The cloak is Red Gore mixed with Scorched Brown and a little Black.
The jacket is Shadow Grey.
Hair - Bestial Brown.
Bag/Straps - Scorched Brown. (forgot to mix a little chaos black in)
Trousers - Chaos Black with a small bit of Scorched Brown.
That's it so far, each part of the miniature getting a few glazes. All that remains is to finish the sword and eyes off before tidying the contrast up with more black in the shaded areas and white or bleached bone mixed with base colours for subtle highlights.
