    I've ordered some Vallejo glaze medium - so I'll give that a try next time.

    For fur, I like to use a second layer of reikland fleshshade on around the top 2/3rds of a tail (for pelts I put this down the middle 2/3rds ish of the wolves back) - then a black layer in the final...

    OK, so this is my first time blending a sword/blade since I have started trying a 2-brush blend of sorts. I created a blue to white gradient fairly watered down on my...

    OK, so I was supposed to to the eyes first, but I was on auto-pilot and did the first layer of facial highlights first. For the face I set up a bone to...

    Step 4 - Armour mid-tones

    OK, now it is time to clean up the armour after the dirty ink stage. I put on a couple of thin coats of the fenrisian grey just on the top surfaces of the plates, leaving the dark shadows in the...

    Step 3 - Inking

    Step 3 - Inking

    OK, so this step I think is worth looking at in detail. I'm sure this is not the way the pros do it, but it does seem to help me keep things neat and increase contrast. I apply a...

    OK - thanks for the ideas. I know I need to improve my bases if I am going to advance much further. I have to be honest though - I am an engineer and software developer, not an artist - I think I...

    Here is the final before and after - you'll notice I also corrected the white balance on the camera to provide a clearer photo - I think that makes a difference too:

    Interesting idea on the base - might give that a try.

    Looks like the touching up has given me just over a 1 point boost - so well worth the effort. Clearly looks nicer IRL. This process has...

    Thanks for that - I see your point on the skull - it could be a bit cleaner - same with the Crozius Arcanum (the mace). Might resubmit it in a few days along with my next project.

    Thin it a bit less if possible
    Use multiple layers
