Im planning on using the new Tyranid painting tutorial in next month's White Dwarf to paint a Lictor i bought today. The one thing ive yet to try properly is feathering like they do on the carapace and the question i have is...
Is feathering quite simply a lot of neat tiny lines done in 3-4 colours from dark to light in order to create the effect?
I dont think the lines have to be neat, just short. Lots of little brushstrokes that leave an appearance of texture.
That is what I always thought anyway.
Funny how it helps to read all of the painting article first before creating a topic. Apparently what you do is you draw a line in paint, wash the brush and then before the paint dries use the brush to pull the paint down. Now i guess that means ill have to add some water to the paint so it doesn't dry as quickly but i use a white light lamp and so it's gonna dry quickly under it. Explains why the guy at my local GW suggested using an anti-drying agent in the paint.
