This was actually the intention of my previous thread, but I had my mind on other things at the time, advice still much appreciated!
This time I need help with feathering Tyranid carapaces. How do you get the 'Eavy Metal look?
++Rep to any who contribute well.
*Squints suspiciously* This smells like a trap...
I'm suspecting you mean some colour transitions?
Again, two ways to do it relatively fast I think
-use an airbrush, best way to get the smoothest colour transitions.
-Or use drybrushing to build up a gentle transition using minimum 3-4 layers, each layer a little lighter than the previous one.
What if I don't have an airbrush? And I tried drybrushing it just looks like I have rubbed chalk all over my 'nids (I'm a purist drybrusher )
What kind of brush do you use? I'm pretty sure I should go for flat ones...
All advice is welcome.
Have you tried layering with watered down paints?
Hmmmm, thinned paints will do the trick but it will be time consuming. I'm guessing that Warlord is looking for a quick&dirty method.
What might work well is to build up layers with drybrushing and glazes/washes; that helps to tone won the roughness of the drybrushing and gives a nice layered effect as well.
A large enough flat drybrush might do the trick and only drybrush with almost dry paint and an almost wiped-clean brush. I'm actually a big fan of GW's large flat drybrush, that a good little companion for drybrushing.
