ive been trying some new ways to make a real blood look.i think im close and this is how i did it.
(1)i took a drop of gw scab re.watered it down and painted a point of were the blood would stop.
like as far as i want blood to go on blade.
(2)next i too that scab red same drop and added some white glue.i tryed to use a glue that would
dry quick and look a little lumpy.i dabbed it below the ending spot of my first step.so dont do the
hole shaded pert.more at the tip of blade.
(3)next i add a little drop of brown ink.i used vallejo smoke70939.add that to your scab red from step 1 and 2.blotch it around close to tip of blad and middle.
(4)now i took a little of the dryed glue from the top of bottle (around rim)and glued them to tip of blade with a watered down glue all over the painted parts(blood part).
(5)now i take a drop of blood red(any will do)and i add it to the watered down glue from step 4.
paint that on the tip of blade and on your glue drop parts from step 4.
and thats it.if you set up a wet pallet type plate you can do this in 3 minute's.just make sure you use waterd down glue and thin layers.i did these step's 1 time,but im sure you can make it look better with 2 trys.
well hope i helped some one.i will try to do some more tutorials with sculpting soon.
well have been trying to get my wolf lord finished so i can paint him.
just figured id get som w.i.p shots up to see what you think,the base
is almost finished.the deamon head is 100% sculpt and the flat part
of the base was made with super sculpty firm.i wish i would of waited
to paint it because i plan to give him the spear of russ held in power
fist.and as of right now i am running out of room.he has lots more detail
to be added to him.i am working on his spear and wolf cape right now.
i also am making a scaberd for his sword from scratch.the shoulder pads
were sculpted and then i made resin copys of them.chest plate and legs
are sculpted over marine parts.the hair on his head is sculpted and
ment to look like its flowing in the wind.would like to have some comments
on him because id like him to be a close image of russ but not him.
i will soon show more but this is the starting point.
thanks for looking and comments.
