I hate this part....

I spent a few minutes working on Rohm Dutt this weekend. Good luck finding what's differnt from the last picture I took.

Here one thing:

I like the way this little skull came out. It was shockingly easy.

Anyway, I'm at a point with this miniature were I'm just picking out tons of little details. It's very tedious and I really don't like this stage of the miniature. I had about a dozen different colors on my pallet and I worked on this model for less than an hour.

I believe I will have this guy done by the end of the week. Stay tuned

Just a suggestion... You always read about "limiting your palette of colors".

When I'm working on details I try to do exactly that.

As an example, if I want a piece of parchment, a skull, and a purity seal all to look different - they will. But every one of them is using the same general colors starting with a different base tone.

Snakebite Leather, Bubonic Brown, Bleached Bone.

Bubonic Brown, Bleached Bone, Bleached Bone/Skull White Mix.

Bleached Bone, Bleached Bone/ Skull White Mix, Skull White.

3 different looks. 5 pots of paint.

This keeps your palette limited - saving time. It keeps your table less cluttered.

Good tip, Nick. I sort of did that although you can't really see it in these picures. There is a holster in the back that I painted Dark Flesh and higlighted with a mix with bleached bone.

The on the font are sankebite, bubonic bronw, and again bleached bone. Then a super thin wash with dark flesh.

The skull is graveyard earth and bleached bone.

I don't know if that counts as limiting my palette or just using a lot of bleached bone.

I'm actually done with this mini now and jut have to do the base. I'll post a picture after that.

Do you have a newer Bleached Bone? Mine is rather old, and terribly thin, though it works just fine. I wonder if the newer one is stronger?

Chris, you must have gotten an odd pot or you're painting it over a color that's too dark.

Then again, I never use any paints right out of the pot and thin down everything.

Scott, I can't wait to see that model all based up! And yeah, you sort of limited your palette just by using a lot of Bleached Bone, haha.
