    Default Eagle Sculpt!

    Here's a little treat! Not much more to say here....
    I like it firm and fruity!

    Excellent model.
    However I think a certain Chuck will be disappointed to see that the model has been given guns when he can destroy armies of zombies barehanded. 8-)

    I've never before cared if miniature jeans were sculpted tight enough... but now that think about it...these are perfect!

    I'm trying to think of the best way to paint a pair of jeans to make them look realistic. I never paint modern minis so I have never really tried before.

    Here is a couple of different methods in youtube videos...first by hand, and the second by airbrush if you have one...

    Another mini was painted using a different technique...
    "Concerning the jeans on Perdita: I used Bleu Abyssal from Rackham Color as base color. It is a very dark rich preussian blue (darker und more intense than regal blue from gw, but that would be the closest of their range) and I used bleached bone or something similar to highlight that color (might have been as well a mix of fauve and jaune parchemin - somewhat darker than bleached bone with a bit more of a yellow touch in it). I didn't bother too much with very clean blending (this created parts of that slight texture to the jeans), however I didn't do any 'drybrushing' - as you mentioned it tends to lead to somewhat 'random' results, instead I painted fairly thin lines with the tip of the brush and used a second slighty wet brush to smudge the start and ending points of these lines (you can usually somewhat erase paint if it is still fairly fresh ~ 1min). However the paint below should have been left to dry for ~5 minutes"

    Here is a tutorial with step by step pictures of another method...

    And one more with a picture of the finished product:
    Thanks for all the helpful comments. I did a bit of messing around tonight and came up with something I'm quite happy with. The model is still very much a WIP but for the denim I went with an Enchanted Blue basecoat and a wash of Asurmen Blue. I then mixed up a 50/50 mix of Enchanted Blue and Astronomican Grey and highlighted using that, finally a very light drybrush of Astonomican Grey and I was done.

    Here is what I ended up with
