Fire Falcon
« on: 23 November 2022, 04:24:22 »
I'm working on a commission for a CJF star and this is the first element and at the same time I'm experimenting with a new method of painting using mostly transparent paints lots of washes and tons of glazes.
My goal is/was to find a method that is effective and at the same time as fast as possible.
I started with a pre-painting phase using the dry brush technique by applying 4 shades of gray.
Subsequently I used a transparent green and subsequent washes (also using blue as a contrast)
After for the pre-highlight phase I mixed the color with the glaze.
On a rough estimate I spent less than 3h doing all of this and by my standards I'd say I was pretty quick.
I am missing the final highlights and details which I hope to be able to finish in a couple of hours.

Look at inks too they go on thin but prvide more coverage per layer than glazes sometime one pass is all you need.
There would be less humans if they were tastier....
