In this article I will describe how I painted Knight Models' Deadman.
- Pure red
- Blue tone ink
- Purple tone ink
- Abyssal blue
- Antares red
- Artic blue
- Deep red
- Golden skin
- White sands
Over a black and white primer I applied a couple of thin layers of pure red.
Using a mix of deep red and antares red I began to sketch in the areas of shade using the preshading as a guide.
Using a mix of antares red and a touch of golden skin I establish the highlights.
To deepen the shading I used a mix of deep red and abyssal blue.
I then applied a couple of very dilute glazes of pure red over the model to increase the saturation of the red.
To highlight the red I added increasing amounts of golden skin to antares red applying each highlight to a smaller area.
To finish the red I sparingly applied glazes of abyssal blue into the deepest shadows.
To paint the head and 'D' sign I first applied a basecoat of artic blue. I then applied to washes of first purple and then blue. These were diluted using the quickshade wash medium and a little water.
Artic blue was reapplied leaving the shading in the recesses.
A highlight of artic blue and white sands was added to the brightest points of the face.
The finished model.
