Belaboring this...

I don't intend to be, but that's the way it is with life in the big city (or real far from it, as is my case).  I have the most heartfelt of intentions of getting this model moved along tonight, but I did at least try the oil-based wash technique and am liking the versatility of that method.  I really should move this blog from "look what I can do!" (I truly hate that character, but it's about right with some blogs out there -- maybe including mine) to a "look what YOU can do (like this)!"

Anyway, I've got this current couple views of the mauler and am liking what I see it going.  As you'll notice, I've included "dirty" yellow images as well as ultra washed out versions, all with the intent of obfuscating the true "glory" of the model until it's too late to go back.  In all honesty though, kindly weigh in, down in the comments, on whether you think the highest areas of the model warrant a very light highlight toward white.  I'm on the fence, so let me know.


  1. I kinda like the yellowed out ones it makes it look gritty and more "real" you know for a huge monster with blue skin...

    your choices for colors are great as all ways this guy looks wonderful so far.

  2. that's gonna look great. with the skin and rock blend now done-ish
