I just want to be sure I'm doing this right- to paint the eyes, (I want to do them quick) I put a dot of red in, and that's it. I'm using the gum-scraper end of a cheap toothbrush. Still, there's red around the eye socket, but I can just touch that up after, right?
For the teeth, I paint the mouth black, and then dry brush the skull white on after? I get black on the face too, but that can also be touched up, right? Because right now, it looks like my tyrant is wearing clown make-up, and I'd hate to have to strip him again. It's normal to have to touch them up a little, right?
Its normal to have to do touch ups. Im pants at doing eyes (so i dont) so i cant help you there. But for teeth i'd use bleached bone. Its alot better (nids dont have toothbrushes!
A Promise to a dead man means nothing.
I agree Spike, white teeth on Tyranids makes them look like those styled poodles you see at dogs' beauty contests..
Ave Dominus Nox!
Agree with spike, use bleached bone, makes them look more natural
I'm already using bleached bone for the carapace, and since I'm using the dipping method, the teeth will get highlighted with brown anyway. I'm more concerned with the way I'm painting than the color. It's ok that I'm getting black on the lips and even face, right? I mean, when I touch it up, it'll look ok, right?
BTW, if you've ever seen animals in the wild, they have surprisingly white teeth...
don't know, I'm not looking forward of getting that close to a Tiger or any other big carnivore especially if they are hungry
How do I get the black between the teeth, I alwasy had trouble doing this...
Well, I've been painting all day, and I've been doing ok with the teeth. What I've been doing is painting the entire mouth area black, and drybrushing the teeth white. If the brush is pretty stiff, and there's not much paint on it, you'll only get the raised areas of the mouth, which are the teeth. Since I'm not perfect, I use the gum-scraper portion of a toothbrush to paint the areas between the teeth black again if I mess up. Plus, with a dark wash or a dip, you can make the teeth a bit darker and get rid faint white marks that may be messing up the mouth. Hope that helps.
Use some black ink, that's what i always do. My models are hard-inked, looks like they've been rolling around in dust. But hey, they have.
sorry for the bad lighting

To get the black paint into the right place is quite easy: water it down, and let it flow there...if this layer is too thin (not covering well) then simply put some more paint on the brush and touch the mouth area: the paint will meld into the watered mix...
