Skeleton with Halberd - Reaper # 02014
Pictures taken with webcam. Good pictures to appear some day.
Mini #4, and I finally, finally got to relax with something simple. More wet-brushing, and some experimenting with washes on the wooden pole which - while they didn't fail - didn't come out as I'd hoped. Not until I laid the ink down, anyway.
Things I like: The shadows on the bone. That's a white paint-on primer over the whole thing. Then, some Walnut in the stomach cavity and on the butt. The the shield was a mix of Truesilver and Walnut. I like the Walnut color. Eventually I mixed some Gunmetal in, too.
Then came the bone, which I said I liked. That's Ivory as a base. Then, a mix of probably 2 parts Walnut(!) and one part Maroon. That was laid in heavy in crevices and shadows, and wet-blended with more Ivory. It all has a very Halloweenish effect, but doesn't look too sucky, I think.
I love Halloween.
Things I don't like: The back of the halberd blade looked excellent when I painted it. When it dried, it was a flat metallic shade. Very disappointing. I know I can do better with the straps, too.
What I learned: Walnut plays well with others. Ink makes a better wash than watered down paint. If this dark purplish mixed so well with Ivory, then contrast needn't be a dirty word. Sometimes, simpler really is better.
