[WM/H] Been Painting: Feral Warpwolf, ‘Scar’

Not a bad start, I feel.  The giant mould line across his face only became apparent after priming, so I figured I’d highlight it as an old scar that never goes away no matter what shape he takes.  Deliberately light on spikes too – they’re a bit silly and half of them were missing anyway.
I’m quite pleased with the blending on his muscles and fur, which I hadn’t been planning but which became apparent as the Way Forward once I’d found some pictures of timber wolves.  I’m less pleased with the gauntlets, which I feel let the whole down somewhat; might have to mix some brown in with those colours to keep them on a level with the rest.
Any thoughts?

  1. >Really really good, the torso is really smooth, the face is fantastic and I'm glad you're coming round to my "paint the hurty bits" theory as that mouth and teeth look very well…….hurty!The armour plates don't look quite right as you say, try giving them a Devlan Mud wash and see if it takes the edge off?Shame about the mould line but I like the idea of using it in a mini narrativeIn summary well played Kaptain

  2. >Thank you! I'm glad you like the blending; I was very much farting about with it, not being entirely sure what I'm doing, but if it looks good that's pleasing. :DThey've already had a wash. I'm thinking I might blend some Bubonic Brown into them to give them a bit of a shading, see if that does anything.I should perhaps add that that giant mould line was invisible because the model had already been primed black and chipped to buggery when I got it. I decided to prime over the top of that… which explains how I managed to miss it in amongst all the other distressed surfaces.
