It wasn't great with the factory paint job, this pic is not mine but it shows more or less what it looked like in it's original paint

If it had a few more colours it would give it a bit more visual impact I think

This is going to be a great painting experience Pete, I look forward to seeing this one.
It's nice to have a break from the styrene kits now and again.

No worries Nigel

Yes this will make a nice change, I'm getting g a little bit worn down with the etch on the Me 262, there is a lot to go inside the wheel bays
The predator will be a nice diversion and fun to paint, it's a shame that the body netting is moulded on as it's a bit heavy, but I don't think I could remove it and make it look tidy

I'm going to be working down in the cellar today, but I wanted to make a start on this.

I mixed a sand colour with white and sprayed on as a base

Then painted some black spots on his noggin


Clear orange over the spots

It has a bit of a Giraffe look at the moment lol

Then Tamiya smoke over sprayed but concentrating towards the back of the skull

The smoke dries to a very glossy finish when it's laid down so thick, but I'm liking the effect

Still a long long way to go, but it's heading in the right direction, I'm going to do a few hours on the new mancave conversion and hope to get a bit more done on this later

Cheers

I ran a thin dark wash to bring out the folds in the skin

Pink in the mouth, followed by the same mix but with more red added stippled over the top

The wash came out better than I hoped, it's quite subtle and not "chalky"

Rather than just flood the face with the wash, I added it a little at a time with a fine brush and built up the effect

Black wash in the eye sockets, and over the sides of his forehead

A blurry pic, but this was supposed to show the tusks painted off white and wash added to the root and up the sides

A better pic, I used black and then brown wash for the teeth and tusks, keeping it heavier at the root and working it up to the points, and also painted the "hairs ?" Black

I think I need some orange at the temples down into the jaw

The eyes were much easier to do at this size, a dot of orange followed by a smaller dot of yellow and finally a tiny dot of black

I went back and added mor clear orange to the temple and jaw, it blends much better now

I covered myself in mud while I painted him so he couldn't see me

I'm going to paint the dreads then see if the face needs anymore work, it looks a little plain at the forehead

That head is looking very nice. Much better than what you started with.

I have painted the dreads and added a few mor spots and a bit of orange to the top of the head

There are a load of rings in his dreads to paint gold and silver


Reference pics showed it was pretty dark in the eye sockets so I added a bit more black

Looking great Pete, the teeth? What was in the wash? Is it an out of bottle wash? Or did you make something up yourself? Great effect. And I bought that smoke the other day, how much did you thin it to get that effect? (sorry, I like details. lol) Looking really good mate.

Thanks Simon

The brown wash is Vallejo umber wash thinned with water and I had a little bit of Vallejo black wash on the pallet and mixed as I went along

I thin the smoke up until it is really just tinted thinners, I use Gunze self levelling thinner and airbrush it in really light coats at very low pressure or it runs everywhere
For brush painting try around 50:50, but you have to be careful or the thinners in it will eat the underlying paint, it dries really glossy too, so if you don't want that effect you need to give it a mat coat to tone it down
