Well, here's Stage 4 of the Mumak re-paint - the tusks and toenails.
Sure, minor job, but it took a bit of doing still, this monster is really BIG!
Firstly I hit up the internet...
So some have very white tusks, some more browny, in both cases quite blotchy. So that was the look I was going for. Pretty much what I normally do for bone, but on a much, MUCH larger scale!
Firstly a few layers of bleached bone to cover the old blotchy brown.
And same for the toes.
Next some heavy drybrushing of white.
Then a sepia wash, with a concentration near the top where the tusk joins the head.
Then it's more white, heavy again as I kind of like white tusks.
Toenails are the same, but smaller scale!
Finally there's a brown wash just in streaks near the very end of the tusk to help with the delineation and because I like the effect =)
So far so good (I think!) and now on to the tedious browns and blues that will be on all the straps. Tedious because you have to use a small brush to avoid too much splash damage!
