Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am currently painting my stegadon (engine of the gods) and i have painted it with green skin and i am wondering what colour to do the scales. i was thinking of maybe doing them black. what is the best way to paint this?
thanks for any help!
I did this same kind of painting, but in red.
I used a lighter red for the skin than the scales, Then I took a darker red, (you may want to use dark angels) to paint the scales.
Then I did a wash of badab black on the scales applying as much as i wanted to make it darker.
Then I highlighted with the darker colour (in your case would be dark angels) on the tips of scales that needed a highlight.
It ended up looking quite good, but i don't think full black scales would look that good, thats why I used a red undertone and only washed on black. Its still very dark but you can see that the scales are reddish, which corralates well against the skin.
Thats what the rep button's for!
