I could not help my self starting to paint a 'test' wolf.
I started out with a white base and added the sepia wash to get the darker shades. After this I dry brushed it with bleached bones and again with skull white. Apparently I suck on dry brushing, because it looked all dry and not very clean.
So... I was not very pleased with the result so I started adding white strand by strand (see the head... the rest is original dry brushed) and it got better, but not good.
I might try to add even more color and hide as much depths as possible without removing it completely.
What I'm after is a wolf that is plain snow white, but with some shades in the fur. The sepia is obviously both to dark and to brown and I don't want to use any other of the GW washes i have.
The result is... not what I wanted... And their for I'd like your opinions of how to end up with a better result.
What would you done here? Add white to the sepia and make it a very very very thin wash? Or make your own wash based on fortress gray or astronomican gray?
Do you think a blue tone will look strange instead of the brown?
Maybe I end up painting him gray and paint strand by strand i 2 or 3 layers....
