It's tricky to tell from the photo, she seems to suffer from the same problem of photography that my latest guardian was; being brightly coloured and glowing.

Try a lighter background so the camera doesn't up the brightness, or fiddle with the brightness on the image to darken it.

I'm not much of a skin expert to offer any general advice at the moment. Other than, from that picture, she looks like she needs more shadows/depth on the face.

The base and colours on the 'nid look good though.

i think from what i see (the doc is right...!) that she looks the part...:





sigourney (in my opinion) suffers from fiew-facial-experssion- syndrom...soi think you right on the money (the lips could be a bit less pink tho

as for the base... very alien vibe i have to say... i like the face to face view here the best... raising wigourny was a very good decision... where i am a bit unsure is the scheme of the bug tho... the green... i duno maybe the complete alien scheme would have been better...?

Really looking great. Normally not a fan of metallic looking bodies, but it works on nids Are you going to do a second version of her wearing centurion armor?

It's a nice metallic sheen you have going on Dorothy. What are you using to achieve that?

Thank you guys.

Ok so the paint....

I have lots of paint. So I have several pots of the good old chainmail, one of these I added a bit of rust brown ink to and use it a lot on my orks.

For the skin, after base coat I added some black wash and a drop of Waagh green ink to the metallic paint. That gave me the green. Then I have gone with a the metallic and some black and a wash made from blood red. Both these metallic coats are wet, as in very nearly washes. bit thick for a wash really, but no way you can drybrush with it. Having said that I used a large brush and brushed the plates on the back, with the red mix similar to if you were drybrushing, and get that tone effect.

I found undercoat matters a great deal, so originally you saw it with a white belly and bright green back, the metallic went straight on that and gave me a greener back. And where I wanted the red to really come through, like on top of the dorsal vents? (if that's what they are.) I undercoated those with Hobgoblin orange.

It's all a bit slap dash I am afraid and I am no great painter (want to be one day) and I also am sorry but I could not tell you the equivalent colours for today's paints. Half my paints don't even have labels. It's a case of I use that red to undercoat, and those 4 reds and those oranges to brighten it. Not really helpful I am afraid.

I hope that's not too complicated and long winded, and is at least understandable.

Leave you with pic of my everyday paints more elsewhere, and a pic of the dirty chainmail compared to normal chainmail.

Ooh, shiny metallic bug... Looks great mate

As for the paint collection, I have a similar (if smaller) collection of random pots - some date back to the late 80's when I purchased the Citadel paint sets and several pots of Smelly Primer

Hey cam! Man thanks to the explanation... I had imagined that for the bugs skin you used one special paint. But instead you showed the honorable way you paint. Seems you feel rather the paint than follow others recepies...which I think is great. This is like me in the kitchen, cooking on impulse and not with guides...
I always wanted to mark my pots with their respective colors, but ever since my wife got me a big sorting case for them every pot is sorted for their hue...
And I too love the old paints... And smelly primer is for the win!!!!
