Twisted Painting Guides: Bloodrage Urkin Part 1 - Painting the Flesh

Post by SebDG » Sat Dec 23, 2017 11:56 am

Hi everyone,

I'm writing a series of Twisted painting guides over the coming weeks, giving some insights into the step-by-step painting process as well as showing a few tips and tricks, and other ways to achieve some special effects.

The first painting guide is now up - it features the Bloodrage Urkin from the Dickensians!

Part 1 looks at the step-by-step process of painting the flesh.


You can see the 'Bloodrage Urkin' Painting guides here:

This is great Seb.

Is this the beginnings of painting guide from the kickstarter pledge? If so, bloody fantastic. If not, still bloody fantastic! ;)

The detail, technique and thought processes you go into is very enlightening, although I get lost in the big blocks of text especially when reading back over the steps. I feel some short summary dot points for each step would be really helpful for me.

e.g. You could stick this after the step 1 text, but before the pictures:
Remember: ....or Summary: .... or In Short:
  • Undercoat first
  • Thin basecoat 1:1 with water
  • Paint 2 or 3 thin layers

That's a great idea - I think adding a brief breakdown in point form could work well. Good thinking! I'll see if I can do that for Part 2, and maybe I can find some time to revisit Part 1 and make some tweaks/add some extra bits like you suggest.

Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed the article! :D

And yes, this is the start of the Kickstarter Painting Guide - but I've decided to expand things and do a whole series of guides to share, to hopefully give you all some inspiration to get painting :)
