Another update on my Heldrake.
I managed to get the neck pretty much done (still needs blood added to it) and started on the head.
The reasoning behind using the flesh tone I have picked is because I am heavily inspired by the Akira mutations, as seen in the film “Akira”! If you haven’t watched the movie (for shame) this is what I mean.
I did attempt to paint the pipes varying colours to show different levels of pressure on the skin, but it ended up looking a little weird.
Anyway, I am hoping to finish the head tonight, then it will just be a case of painting the torso and then it’s done!
As well as providing hobby news and general articles, I will be using the site as something of a blog for myself. I will never feature the blog as a main article, but I will have it easily accessible for anyone who likes following that sort of thing.
You’ll have to forgive the rather poor title image until I can whip something better up!
Anyway, its been a while since I did anything like painting. My pc died a week or so ago and ever since then I have been building a new one, and the hobby side of things has had to suffer because of it.
Anyway, here is the stuff I am working on at the moment.
The Heldrake is a pain of a model. All those rivets, all that metal raised areas are enough to drive you a little mad. To top it off I am not particularly happy with how the metal looks on the wings. I tried a new technique out and I am not that happy with it. So I am tempted to go back and do the metal again.
