...because you're an addict! lol admit it Nigel. That's the first step, they say. LMAO

You're going down the same roads I am with the figures. I've been using a lot of these tricks as well. I love how they turn out and I'm falling in love with Vallejo washes. Its good to know that these tricks work even better in a larger scale.  [biggrin]

Mike,

I LOVE THIS SCALE...and I think I've always been an adict for figures.

This photo shows the results of lightening the drybrushing.

..a progressive of 2:1, 1:1, & 1:2, .....that's base coat to Ushabti Bone.



..once dry fine line detail with pure Ushabti Bone. ..this going to require one steady hand and a fluid paint mix with the medium..

Wish I had a jacket like that...it's getting a bit colder now...

Thanks Mike.

Well here is my final stage.

I detailed the top of the folds with a transparent line of Ushabti Bone, and before it dried add neat Bone with no Medium in it.

Once dried I coated the surface with a Sepia wash, which gives it a richer colour.
The jacket looks grainy, but it suits it. Later I will give it another coat of Sepia, and then seal it with Satin/matt varnish.



So now you know how, give it a try...you will be suprised with the result, good luck.

Happy with that so I will rest for a little with a nice cuppa.

Cheers

Wellll..... that looks like real leather. I will try this and you know it lol.

Its those awkward transition periods somewhere in the middle where we're all thinking, "That's not too bad looking" and then you hit the final bit and out pops the WOAH!! Yeah, that's my favorite part lol.

Thanks Mike.

The one thing that a lot of modellers forget is that if it doesn't work you only have to cover it with base colour & start again.

With leather if you mess up the drybrushing....just give it a warm colour wash, it will give the look of wear and tear.

Update

I've given the jacket a coat of matt varnish to protect it, and I quite like the look.

Now I'm onto the Life Preserver.

I've started with 2 coats of Averland Sunset mixed with medium.



Next I have to think of a shade.

Thanks for looking.

Next Stage..

I've chosen to use Reikland Fleshshade and given the areas 2 coats, again concentrating on pooling in the recesses.





On to the drybrushing once completely dry.

Drybrushed with base colour and progressively added more Yriel Yellow.

I then I highlighted with Flash Gitz Yellow with Medium.



Letting this dry...so here's one I did earlier...



To bring everything together I gave the area a careful coat of Lamenters Yellow Glaze.

To make this look better I will varnish with Satin/Gloss mix.

Time for a cuppa and some nice cheese sandwiches, oh and take my meds (time to get high) [thumb]

Whilst going through You Tube I came across this. ..



I'm quite suprise that the Life Preserver is more lemony and is matt.

Great reference.

Love how this just keeps getting better and better, piece by piece. This stitches in the harness look almost real.

The molded detail is fantastic, and really suits washes and drybrushing.

Just figuring out a base for this...it's getting closer to the finishing flag.

You should add one of these to you Christmas wish list [thumb]
