I'm looking forward to getting some decent rest, this weekend. Toasty, the legend, needs a breather from drawing her fid. Therefore, I am getting an entire night's sleep tonight.
My experiments are yielding results:
- Wet pallets make the paint go 'funny' over an extended period of time, turning the paints there into washes by accident. Solution - mor layers!
- It doesn't matter if the primer is grey or black, the colours seem to go on just fine with enough care and attention to detail.
- Including white.
I'll also be experimenting with drybrushing and underpainting before drybrushing as time goes by. See which one looks the most effective and so on.
Good thing it's a practice dude. I can fuck up in multiple directions and live with the shame. I mean... I'm already pretty darn finicky with my brushwork, so I should be tumbling down the rabbit hole any day now and talking in technical jargon 24/7.
So far the best purchase seems to be the 'model painting brushes' set from Overflow.
Likewise, gold and silver acrylic model paint from Gamestronics for $10 total.
Onn my next test dude, I shall be combining my learnings to achieve an overall Look. Watch out.
