Yet another commission to showcase and this time from a range of models that I really adore - Infinity TAGs. This guy was painted first by an airbrush - in this case I used Vallejo Air colors. I started with Cam. Light Green, then shaded down with Tank Green. I made the shading even deeper by adding Valejo Model Color Black Red to the Tank Green; a trick stolen from Angel Giraldez. Then I used an airbrush to highlight some more with a mixture of Cam Light Green, GW Scorpion Green and Vallejo Model Color Ivory.
After that I broke out the brush and went to work on the gray metal parts. This was a done with a basecoat of Adeptus Battlegrey (old Foundation paint). I washed it with Badab Black, then worked up by adding Vallejo Deck Tan to the basecoat color. Final dot highlights with white. Then I shaded some more by adding GW Dark Flesh to the basecoat. There is quite a bit of back and forth with blending. Shading then highlighting, and shading again. All with thin layers of paint. I still have a long way to go in developing the skill.
I want to add some battle damage to this guy but I am nervous about screwing up the airbrush work, which is basically unfixable at this stage.
The freehand is alright, and I really like the angry badge.
