Hello All... I am working on a Catachan Lt., who has a big ass bolter and stands in a real cool pose. He has massive muscles (as all catachans do) and now the time has come to paint all that skin. I know I can get my facial areas alright, but what about all those muscles? Are there techniques out there or any tips on how to make it look good? I find the GW Catachan's muscles too goofy looking, in the sense that the shading/highlighting almost seems too much. How can I make it more real?
Thanks for your time...
To avoid the sharp contrasts in the muscles - don't use such a contrasting set of colors. Start with your base color and gradually mix in lighter shades leaving the darkest color in the recesses and applying the lighter colors as you move up to the top of the muscle ridges.
Maybe avoiding ink will also help alleviate harsh contrasts.
