Weekend Update

All posts tagged Weekend Update

Despite the lack of blog updates I am working on things every other night or so.  It’s just been assembly for the most part, which isn’t all that fun to blog about (or read about, I’d imagine).

One of my primary goals right now is to paint up my Spriggan.  It’s for Lost Hemisphere’s BFF’s project, and it lets me try out my Khador scheme on a warjack, which I’m really excited about.

Sorscha’s done, but the Spriggan is quite an undertaking.  Not that I haven’t painted ‘jacks or ‘beasts, but I’ve never used 2-brush blending on wide, flat spaces, and boy is it … interesting.

Anyway, here’s the Spriggan, let me know what you think.

The camera really picks up on the luminosity of the Khador Red Base.  The greys aren’t actually that dark, it’s just how the picture turned out in my lightbox.  Unfortunately, the paints are semi-reflective (due to the saliva used in 2-brush blending, I think), so I had to turn down the lights in order to avoid the glare.

I’m pretty happy with the blends on the top of the ‘jack, but the blends on the shield are pretty rough.
