About the Project

It’s getting late for Spring Clean, but better late than a pile of grey plastic models! Had these direwolves sitting on my shelf. Time for some painting!

Got 7 wolves almost done.

Need to add some tufts on the base. Some green tuft will help to add some colours because right now it’s a lot of brown tones.

Streaky Grime Magic

To tie all the colours together (the drybrush and the undercolours), streaky grime works wonderfully!

I like the drybrushing result.

The undercolouring/undershading shows up nicely on the pale grey skinned models, but doesn’t really show on the darker model.

The red muscles / red sores stand put nicely against the pale skin.

I will add some streaky grime washing at the end to tie all the colours together. My initial colours are all brighter than the final results as the streaking grime will tone down.

Underpainting!

After zenithal priming, I added various shades as undercolours.

It looks like a clown fiesta right now, but you got to trust the process 😄 (at least that is what I keep telling myself)

Underpainting!

Second step is to drybrush lightly some fur colours. Going for various hues of brown and some light grey.

It’s a light drybrush so the undercolours is showing a bit. Then an even lighter drybrush to really bring out the fur details.

The dire wolves are good models for drybrushing with all the fur and the details.

Also added a bit of fleshy tone to th decaying muscles.
