Make sure you add mottling, veins, and spots to the skin. You can look at Abe's hand and head for an example of what I am referring too.

Steve Wang's video is really the way to go for airbrushing creatures.

This video is good too.

A trick I discovered about the Stan Winston school is that you can just follow what the steps are by reading the chapter names.

There is a kinda tutorial on how to do mottling.

Man... I love Halo and am very excited to see how this turns out.. Youve done a great Job sculpting the Elite. Any Plans for some Scout or Zealot armor or something to finish him off or even the arbiters gear?.... Great job

Thank you Alpha! I did end up getting the Steve Wang video. It's very informative. Thanks for the links my friend, I appreciate your help!

Lol, true. I'm going to try and pull a flex foam it casting. ;)

Thank you sir. It's always a pleasure reading comments from an awesome artist such as yourself. I haven't decided on a armor yet, but yes, ultimately, I would like to slap armor on this bad boy. Thanks again for the kind words!

excellent work,love the skin texturing!


Thak you! That was the hardest thing for me. I read and read a read some more. There are some Tutorials on The FX Lab that really helped me. Thanks again for the kind words!


Update

Welll, here is a quick update and sneak peek of the paint job. I still have a lot of work left and this is currently the base colors only. I still need to figure out how to do the eyes, but I wanted to let everyone see where it is currently headed. Enjoy!

You are off to a very nice start!
I am happy I was able to help you out! :thumbsup
Did the sprayguns come in handy? Or was this mostly airbrushing?
I have been thinking about investing in spray guns since they seem a lot less $$ than a airbrush. I figure they would be easier to clean too.

I can make these available if people want them. I have only made 3 so far. None have been finished. I can make urethane resin kits and foam flex-it. PM me if you're interested. Be good.
