diorama entry: until the end

Post by hammer326 » Mon Apr 13, 2009 1:43 am

Hi everyone i am here to enter my recently completed diorama into the contest. I know its about 8 hours from deadline but idk why it wouldnt count as an entry. anyway onto the entry, I think ill start off by talking about how i constructed it. I started with some 1.5 inch styrene then coated top in watered down elmer's glue and covered in sand. then I carefully applied a latex equivalent of scorched brown before applying a bestial brown drybrush and over that a light bleached bone drybrush. I then painted up 4 deathworld veteran models using some techniques I have learned over my years of painting such as layering, highlighting, and a skin painting technique consisting of a dark flesh base over black primer, then tanned flesh then dwarf flesh then finally elf flesh and occasionally some white highlights. The models feature my new desert camo consisting of a bestial brown or tau sept ochre base thinned down and layered on there(about 9 layers give or take)and then spotted snakebite leather or scorched brown onto the base colour. I did all metallic parts of the models by starting with a codex grey base, then over that a codex grey-white mix, then adding more and more white into the mix as highlight layers giving a nonmetallic metal effect. input appreciated and if i win I hope that I see some of my fair competitors at 2nd or 3rd place! alright its about 2 AM here, been workin all night thanks for reading and enjoy the pics!!!
