Well this will be my last Lost Hunter for a while, i was quite fond of my open mouth attempt at Borg, so figured id have another go with a closed mouth.

Pics again will show a basic path of how i painted this.

To start i prosaided the mask, then i WHITE base coated ONLY the areas that were going to be in the lighter colour spectrum, ie the white and yellow areas.

Then i sprayed the rest using DARK GREEN thinned 50/50 with isopropynol, and roughly sprayed out the majority of the green area on the main part of the head.

that is what i have done here. Notice that the green looks very different on raw latex, than it does on the parts where there was a white base coat, this does not bother me in the slightest as the green will be darker in most of this paint up.

Then i used Yellow Ocre with a couple of drops of antelope brown ( just to darken it up alittle ) and went randomly over the white areas, some gentle shading was also done on the cheaks, again this is just roughly putting down where i think it needs to go.

Now this last picture looks like there are a few more layers of green put on, in fact there is only a random misting of black in places, NO other green at all from the above 2 pics.
it sinks the green down alot and will hopefully give some shading when i do the darkest green in the next day or so,

Thats where it stands today, hopefully i wil get a hour or so tomorrow, then i will get the green to where i want it, then i will break up the yellow on the edges of the crown with some off white. then i can start marking out the forehead pattern before moving onto the rest of his ugly mug.

as always i am using FW inks.

Thanks guys.

Hopefully i do him justice when hes finished.

Carss66 , yeah i red that isopropynol was best, although i also remember someone mixing alittle water with the isopropynol also. I have tried water in the past, and definately prefer isopropynol.

errrr alittle, but i do not smell it much when using it to be honest. and the layering and translucency i am learning to get is worth it.


gota keep trying to learn new things and get better. :)

Unsure at the moment, but it will be one of those yes...................AFTER i finish my P1 legs and right hand.

Anyhoooooooo

Borg......... ignore the above as i obviously dd not folllow my own schedule. I realised after i had done the dark greens and the red inlays on the forehead horns, that overlaying the yellow may be risky if the ink is wet, so i went onto the cheaks, and then as i made too much red i did the mouth before moving onto the greens on the cheaks.

This is where it stands for today, then i will do the yellow pattern on the forehead, ( which will have to be tweaked as my sculpt is obviously not the same shape as the film one. ) then some final shading and touch ups, and then the teeth i guess.

Oh i added Rusty sienna into the green. to darken it.

Thanks Guys.

I think i will be darkening him up alittle more in general, maybe even slightly more towards the olive green specturm, to try somehow make the green look natural lol.

I guess i will be ble to tell more when all the details are done.
