Just....black

Hey there,

Once again I'm unwinding my skills in painting black. Man I'm beginnig to develop sort of character noir thing :) Anyway I really hit off with latest commission and it's safe to say I'm more than halfway done.






Right now parts that are almost finished are : Castellans x3, Dark Marshall x1, as usual they still wait for some washes and dust plus varnishing but I guess you're used to it by now ;)



Other part i.e Morgul Knights, still need some glazes and washes over black parts, but they're mostly done I guess maybe some highlights will be added I haven't decided yet. Also their metallics seem quite nice to me, but it's up to commissioner to decide on that matter ;)

On the end note I can't help myself with some creative finish, so here's tune that will best express what's the main thought of this entry ;)



Cheers

  1. What no "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones?

    My Black has gotten pretty tight but I like to go for a kinda surrealistic look sometimes. Foundry Charcoal Black Triad is my secret weapon.

  8. Thank you, kid sir! I've been starting on a Ringwraith recently.
    Do you use the Bluegray for dry brushing or do you use it to paint over the black?

  11. Back again,
    I've been re-doing some layers on my Ringwraith and Castellans using the bluegray pale with black but I still can't seem to get that blue-ish hue that you have. I understand that the badab and liche glaze is supposed to bring it out but I seem to be doing something wrong.
    What order should I be doing them in? Or should I try oxford blue instead?

    I apologize for being so nosy, it's just that I love what you did to the robes and want to try it out on my models.
