This was a fun build.
Nice weathering. Subtle and effective. I'd love to see it under natural outdoor lighting.
That's the plan for tomorrow. I finished this just as it was getting dark, so I wasn't able to take it in natural light.
The only thing that could make it better is if it was stomping an Ewok.
Brilliant,....weathering is perfect and the base is fantastic
And finally for the AT-ST, as with all my models , I do a photo composite of the finished build.
That's looking like a screenshot from the movie! How did you get the reflections of the greenscreen removed so nicely?
Well, I'm a visual effects artist for a living, so that helps. But I also used a plug-in I wrote called Spill Slayer designed just for removing green reflections. I then substituted the green reflections for blue ones from the color in the background image to make it sit in more naturally.
That is very interesting, thank you for the link!
Looks great, Daniel!
Well dang went and ordered one now.
Great weathering effects and the base is superb!
Fantastic weathering job which is the hardest part to get just right, would love to hear your weathering technique used.
The weathering looks nice, but it's pretty easy to achieve really. There are only 3 techniques I used here, and all are easy to do. But combined together, they make a great result.
1. I follow this tutorial for general discoloration first...
Let this dry for at least 24 hours.
2. For my second pass, I do the same thing, but I use a fine detail sponge to dab the surface instead of using a brush to wipe. This gives the surface a nice "grime" texture here and there instead of just wiped streaks. Let this dry for at least 24 hours.
3. The chipped edges are just hand painted with a tiny brush and Vallejo Model Colour paint. I would let it dry 5-10 minutes and then *lightly* swipe a toothpick back and forth over my painted chips to break it up even more and avoid a blobby look.
If this is not clear enough in text, I can make a video tutorial demonstrating it.
Such an awesome job of weathering.
