For the first installment... Super Dungeon Explore, Thunderwolf Cavalry, and Fenrisian Wolves!
|My always cluttered work space, Space Wolves in the front, SDE in the back.|
|The Angry Bear transformation for the Druid in SDE.|
|The nearly completed Druid from SDE.|
|My Blood Wolf T-cav w/Frost Blade.|
The Thunderwolf Cavalry are roughly 98% finished, just a few bits of detail work, and a little work on the faces to fix a couple of issues. The wolves are still in the wash stages, as I'm working on adjusting their patterning through washes before I go in for highlighting and such. I've downloaded dozens of pictures of real wolves to help with dealing with them, and the variation in patterning of the fur is pretty amazing. Going with one solid coat and not adjusting for pattern just does wolf models a total disservice.
A few examples from my wolf picture library.
As you can see, even in the 'solid' areas there are a number of variations. While I'm not going for 'perfect' with my wolves, I am working towards a somewhat natural look in my painting.
On a side note... my camera is good... but I really do need a better camera for taking close in pics. Only so much you can do with a middle of the road digital camera at times.
