    Quick Tip #62 - How to Paint Necrotic Souls



    The second quick tip in which I paint more of Zaal, the Ancestral Advocate. This video is all about those green, wispy, necromantic magical souls on his staff and in his hand.

    A very easy method that uses thinned, but opaque paint and layering colours right out of the pot to achieve the effect. No blending, glazing, or experience required! If you can hold a brush, you can make your souls and necromantic magic look this good.

    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise. No blending or glazing was used for this method, and every colour was used straight from the pot.

    Base - Wurm Green
    Shade 1 - Iosan Green
    Shade 2 - Gnarls Green
    Highlight 1 - Necrotite Green
    Highlight 2 - Sulfuric Yellow
    Highlight 3 - Menoth White Highlight

    If you wish for the souls to appear as though they are glowing from within, simply invert the shades and highlights. ie. place the highlights where the shades should go, and the shades where the highlights should go.

    Quick Tip #63 - Flat Panel Blending

    This is a quick video that demonstrates both two brush blending, and a little bit of wet blending to get a smooth transition from one colour to the next.
    In this case, it's an easy transition most beginner, and intermediate painters can handle as red, orange and yellow are fairly easy to blend. Blue, greens, or browns will be even easier if painters are wanting to practice with colours that are even more forgiving.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Top colour: Skorne Red
    Mid Colour: Ember Orange
    Bottom Colour: Sulfuric Yellow

    A Bonus for today.Just so everyone who's not a Patron knows what they're missing.

    Painting Guide - Realistic Troll Flesh

    An in-depth painting guide on how I managed to get the look on the flesh for the Blood Bowl Troll.

    Some unorthodox colour mixtures were used to achieve this effect, as I was going for a more subdued scheme and feel. Since the face was beautifully sculpted, I felt a more realistic approach would enhance the sculpt and details.



    All paints used in this video are Formula P3 from Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base - 50/50 Mix of Khardic Flesh + Cryx Bane Highlight
    Shade 1 - pure Thornwood Green
    Shade 2 - pure Cryx Bane Base
    Highlight 1 - Mix of Thrall Flesh, Cryx Bane Highlight, and Midlund Flesh in roughly equal proportions.
    Highlight 2 - pure Ryn Flesh
    Final Glaze - Sanguine Base

    The final glaze can be placed anywhere blood rises to the surface of the skin (nose, ears, elbows, knees, toes, fingers), or to provide expression and emphasis of emotion (nose, ears, cheeks, eyes, lips, knuckles).

    Quick Tip #64 - How to Paint Hair: Anime Blue

    Another video to add to the 'How to Paint Hair' series, with this installment providing a demo for an Anime Blue, as found on many Infinity and Soda Pop Miniatures models. I demo on the Authorized Bounty Hunter for Infinity this time around.



    All colours used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base - Exile Blue
    Highlight 1 - Meridius Blue
    Highlight 2 - Arcane Blue
    Highlight 3 50/50 Arcane Blue + Frostbite

    Clean up the shading, and add some more visual punch by glazing more Exile Blue into the darkest shadows and deepest recesses. You can also use this step to clean up any mistakes you made during the highlighting steps.

    What a useful channel! And you have one of the most engaging and interesting voices I've ever heard from instructional videos on Youtube!

    hmm, looked at your live-stream test. Compared to your edited videos it wasn't good.
    Mini too blurry most of the time. And even though you were understandable, but the voice was pretty distorted.

    Also it's not a problem only you have (MM and other long videos have the same problem), but most long painting videos are really just "watching paint dry". The smaller max 10-15 min videos are usually better to watch.

    But a question to that: what was the bust you painted?
    edit: ok, found the part where you said it: chaos ball- coach.

    I just needed to tweak and adjust the camera and background. Which was the main reason for doing the tests!
    Thanks for the feedback though. I think I have it pretty solid at this point.
