We vote yes yes.





Supposed to be finishing my witch hunters but it's more fun to get distracted. No wonder I have trouble in school

Is black skaven, so dark fur on arms. I did the meat between the legs and the torso (WHICH YOU CAN'T SEE) in green stuff for a custom pose of sort of going claw over claw, but I've come to realize that it is a very closed off pose which has few pleasing points of view, but I found one!

I may have overdone the highlights, or at least crushed all traces of the darker green I dry brushed on first, but I'm pretty ok with it. Simple yet effective, no? I'm also really happy with the colors of the base, the technique for which I stumbled upon in a bit of whismical artistic exploration. The only thing I'm considering is going back and dry brushing with the dark angels green agian to tone it down.

Really nice looking model! I don't think you've overdone the highlights at all. Very Happy

There IS more than one way you can take that .

...EXCELLENT looking Rat Guy. Since subtle highlighting is THE chic thing lately, I wouldn't be to concerned about the way it turned out. AND, I too, have notice that it is MUCH MORE fun to paint what you feel like rather than what you SHOULD be working on...it explains ALL those Night Goblins & STRANGE terrain I have lurking about . VERY NICE WORK...LOVE the creative misspell.

He looks really cool, I like the pose a lot. And the highlights are good, too. Only the fur looks a little flat currently, but perhaps it's just the light.

You may be right, I was going for a very dark fur color so I only did a little dry brushing with codex gray and a bit of scorched brown but doesn't really bring out the shape of the arms. Anyone know a good way to do dark fur that still has nice highlights?

You could use a very light white drybrush.

I'm drying brushing with some lighter colors (codex gray, fortress gray, skull white) but I'm having trouble making the fur not look gray.

Alas subtlety isn't so much my thing, but a badab black wash seems to have helped.

Blue is a nice highlighting color for black; if you check out someone with lusterous black hair, there's a bluishness to it. For a less lusterous look, a charcoal/greyish brown dry brush works nicely.

or go with a slightly brownish tone, as it still is a ratty fellow... wont make it look to grey, and does look like highlights on the tips..

alternatively, you could just use some gloss varnish, and pretend him to be a wet sewerrate, just clambering out of the sewercanals! Smile

I'll second DeafNala in that a very dark blue can make a great highlight color for black, if you still want to give the effect of black fur. Or you can use a very dark grey, like 1:1 chaos black and codex grey.
