My buddy loves to paint wolves. His fur is a medium tone, wash, hilight with the base color, then 2 more hilights. They always turn out nice.
Hm. Something to look into next time.

Anyway I apologize for the lack of updates, bit of a slump and I thought I had hit a snag. I bought archer for my Frostgrave warband but between the excitement of finally finding an archer that worked with my warband (anthro wolves who are archers are short supply)and me assuming since they both came from the same company (Reaper) that they would be the same scale...but when I got the blister pack I thought the archer would be too small. It ended up collecting dust until I decided to see how the archer compared to my wolves and realized that they are not that far off, and it works since the archer is a fox I can say the size difference is due to speices.

Gah pardon the wall of text. I did get work done on my thief and barbarian today... Trying to decide what colour to make the barbarian's hair... Kinda tired of red haired barbarians.

So decided to leave my Frostgrave warband alone for awhile since I didn't feel motivated to paint them and decided to paint a Super Dungeon Explore hero figure I got for Christmas, the deeproot wolf rider, since most of my friends play SDE and it's a game I plan on getting my nieces into.
Image

This is what I started with last night. For the first time ever I have gone with a light coloured prime since SDE is a very colourful game and most people tend to paint them in bright colours.
Image

And this is what I finished with after having one of the longest continuous painting sessions I have had in a very long time. By the end my hands were getting shaky and it probably took longer than usual because light coloured primes are evil and show you ALL THE MISSED SPOTS!!!!

As for the plan... I am going to work the wolf to a bluish white/whitish blue colour. Both rider and wolf will have purple eyes and the super fine details will get worked out at the end.

Not a great pic. Mostly a test for pin interest. The wolf rider is almost done in time for a Facebook pledge.

Haven't decided yet, haven't figured out how to share a pic directly.

Good start!

For a direct link, just click on the picture until it's the whole window. There will be a .jpg at the end of the URL. Then, just put some IMG tags around it and Bob's your uncle!

Hilarious because I mentioned Elfquest in another thread. I don't care for Space Wolves, but something about an all TWC army really sings to me.

Awesome job LS!
