Painting / Re: The humble brush!
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:14:46 AM »
How would you go about doing pre-shading and post-shading with just hand brushes and spray cans? An airbrush, compressor, and spray booth are beyond what I can afford right now on top of the issue of space for a spray booth.

You might want to try one of the blending techniques mentioned above, I also like to use very thinned colored painted and blend then from panel lined out into the center or outer edge of a part I want to shade a slightly different colour.

have a look at this build, I air brushed the base colours but all the weathering and shading is done using washes and a normal size 2 brush, its more obvious on the grey leg I think.

The new HG PACIFIC RIM kit coming out next year look very promising. The BRACER PHOENIX looks very cool.

Info on Mister Bones:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Mister_Bones
 
So after purchasing the ATM kit the Madmonk put on to the  Mister Bones character from the Star Wars Aftermath books, so the plan is to make this guy from the ATM kit, should be fun.
 
This is about the best representation of him that i can find and what i will be working from.



So i have been working on this for a few weeks now and im well on with it now. If your really interested please have a look here.
