More translucent minis again this week.
I'm starting to develop a sort of technique using progressively darker washes and then dry brushed highlights.
Controlling the amount of light leak is very difficult and if you overdo it you lose the transparency effect. Sometimes it's difficult to actually see what you are painting on these minis as the raw transparent plastic doesn't create shadows which define things like facial features. A blackwash to begin with really helps.
A much better painter friend of said I should really be using inks so maybe on my next transparent mini I can throw some 30 year old Citadel shade on it.
Big shout out to Daniel of dhump3.com for the tips. If you are looking for some quality graphic design for your company or a fantastic digital painting give him a shout.
