Productivity Update #12 – Barnifex

So… Been learning how to paint Nids on the fly.  Here’s some pictures of the Barnifex, which frankly, has been a riot to paint so far.  Very unique as compared to painting my regular troopies!

You’ll have to excuse the lighting, it’s the best I could do unfortunately.  😦

Just a reminder that this is kind of where we were at a few days ago...

Line painting?  Check.  Textured Carapace?  Check!

I didn't really have any fleshy pinky type paints available, so used an ink wash of Reikland Fleshshade in the mean-time.  It'll work.  =/

So once I figure out what to do with the red-bits there, and the fleshy bits (the Stranglethorn… scrotum-like thing?  [ew]) then I’ll be able to chalk this guy up as a huge success, and a nice launching ground into the world of ‘Nid Painting.

Maybe now I’ll actually finish those bullgryns….

Cheers!

    1. if anything, that’s the spot I’ve kind of designated that I could improve! It does look sharp from afar, however. 🙂 Thanks Greggles! Now I need to learn how to base the damn thing.
