As some of you might already know, I have been creating painting tutorials on the Creature Caster figures, which I really love! I have 8 of them in various stages of filming right now, but the first is complete, and a few episodes are on the YouTube channel for you to see.
This is episode 1 of 3: https://youtu.be/jyaCXWRPPdw
That first episode focused mostly on the wings, and establishing the color scheme overall, working from a few reference images of butterflies. I was also using the Pro Acryl paints. The basing was very important, and that is also covered in great depth.
The second episode of the 3 part series involved the rest of the body, in addition to the face and weapons. I was also getting to know the ProAcryl paints a little better, after my first test of the paints in this video: https://youtu.be/sFsQ4VrQG44
Here is a link to that second episode: https://youtu.be/gverWb5dj9k
I really enjoyed creating this series, and the three episode format is what I will be using for the rest as well. The next series to be released will have the Lord of Slaughter painted as a firey demon: https://wappellious.blogspot.com/2018/07/flame-and-ash.html
Here are some more views of the basing, which included water effects, cut leaves, and even some painted moss!
The concept behind this was to show how to create a very intense color scheme with a “limited” palette. I did not use many colors, but choosing the right set can let you create all the tones that you need.
The Pro Acryl paints can be used in a variety of ways, and I will certainly be discovering many more along the way, as the line continues to expand. More of the newest paint colors are on the way here so that I can test them out with the original release!
All of these series will be available to the Patreon page subscribers at the $5 level, but I also have a high level pledge which includes the figure itself. You can check that out here: www.patreon.com/JamesWappel
