After skiving off tonight I've managed to get a few more hours in on my thunderwolves. Tonight I've:
Given the riders the proper basecoat of Fenris Grey (since my original coat was WAAAAAY too light)
Done all the brown basecoats on the riders (Flat Brown)
Started to do the brown on the fur (Flat Brown, thinned with water and starting to blend the fur in)
At the end of the night they now look like this:
Bignose is looking the most finished at the moment, I've blended and brushed on a lot of flat brown into the actual brown bits, leaving the darker fur untouched for now. I have a plan for that, but not sure it'll work so doing that part last. Here's a few of Bignose:
Next up is the other thunderwolf I started blending the brown on it's face. I'm finding painting the plastic fur a lot nicer than the finecast, mainly because the fur is too sharp and crisp on the finecast!
Two just to show some of the darker fur patterns:
If you google brown wolf some of the patterns are there, and then click dark brown wolf at the top and the rest are there. The remaining three with no dark bits will be light brown.
In theory. THey may all turn out to be bollocks, but you get the idea.
