Ok i finished painting the first 2 tyranids for my WIP army... the tyrant was the test scheme since i probably will never field a CC/BS tyrant.
I'm thinking of gloss coating the green parts to make them look slimey
The Last Thing You'll See:rolleyes: :biggrin:
so what'cha think?
Most people who've seen my painting in the past say they're probably the best stuff i've done so far. Are they being nice or what?
Very nice indeed! An unusual colour scheme but an amazing looking one! ^_^ The highlighting has been done really well.
Woo hoo, another person my age. Glasswalkerny, check out the old fogeys clan. As to the miniatures, they look pretty good, one problem, it's too close to my colour scheme, (it's the inverse of mine).

I think those guys look really great, and you did a good job of drybrushing. That color scheme reminds me of... Spiderman.
They look really good. The only critiscism that I have is to blend the drybrushed highlights a little bit more. Perhaps with really thinned down mix of ice blue and white. and then a super thinned down blue or purple ink wash. maybe just a really thin black wash. Anyway, just my opinion and they still look good.:yes:
good. drybrushed i take it (for high lights etc). more work on shading is needed though, try to get the transition smoother (like on the green)
Ah, I see. It looks like it's been highlighted in a dry-brushing way, if that makes sense. Which, <amazingly enough> looks really good! ^_^
I looked at the pics again and the transitions, while not as smooth as they would be if i blended it (ick.. my downfall still), are not as harsh as the flash brought out.. it also kinda killed the faded look of the carapace (it's somehow about 2 shades darker than i should be).Originally Posted by bonjordo
I have not yet mastered blending. I've gone through my ink heavy phase and now am dry-brush heavy.. but i do try and keep the typical chalkyness of drybrushing to a minimum. BTW the talons/claws/hooves are all drybrush too.. they seem to have "blended" better.
