Hi there .
This is a little toturial on how to blend the quick and easy way . Hope you like it . Oh , and dont worry , there are some pictures this time
Chapter one = Tools and more
You're gonna need some tools for this one . Nothing big really . Here is the list :
Brush for drybrushing
Brush For lining
A space to blend on
Base Colour(in my chase , snot green)
Darker than base colour(in my chase , DA
Lighter than base colour (in my chase , A mix of goblin green , scoripion green and skull while)
A wash in the particular colour(note that if you are using white , then i prefer to heavily water down skull white , rather than using Gryphonne Sepia)
Chapter Two : Lining the dark
Ok , so your gonna do pretty much what the chapter name says . Make sure that its a thin , fine line . I used an 0,01 pensil that i got in Portugal to do this fine line , for example . Sorry , but i for got to take pictures of this particuar step . Please note that you can also use the wash to make this line . Also make sure that you have painted the particular area that your blending in your base colour(Snot green for me)
Chapter Three : Drybrushing the dark
The chapter name says it all . When i drybrush to blend i drybrush zig-zag , and then i drybrush another round pulling the colour up . Try not to drybrush to much dark , or no base colour will be left , unless you want it that way ...
Chapter Four : Lining the Light
Again , sorry that this step had to suffer lack of pictures . Just line a bit of the top area of the place your gonna blend , try to aim for that there will still be a bit of the base colour left , unless your aiming for something else .
Chapter Five : Drybrushing the Ligh
Drybrush the light colour on the top area of the particular part your painting . Once again , its best to aim at some base colour being left on the area . Also make sure that there isnt any of the dark colour still in the brush when you do this .
Chapter 6 : A wash for you , sir ?
What the chapter name says , the way i put on the wash when blending is simple . Dib the brush(preferably pointy brush) into the bottle of wash . Then start on the lower area , zig-zaging upwards towards the highest , brightest area .
And your done , here are some before/after pictures
- It whas a huge
mistake to paint the white first and then doing this , try to do all belnding first and then the rest of the part.
- It can sometimes help to put a small dot of white in the middle of the whole bright area , that will "highlight" the highlight ...
- Make sure that the water you use to thin down all paints is clear , and change after the water after the darker colour has been used
- I know this is a dirty , quick way of doing it , but its simple , thats why i posted this here
Thank you for reading this , hope it helps
