Strange Aeons: Completed Bones Werewolf


Here's my finished Bones Werewolf. I painted this over 2 nights by drybrushing browns and greys over black undercoat, purple wash with flow enhancer, layers of greys, browns and sage green, glazes of red and purple. Detail work was simple and straight forward except for the eye glow, where I used reds, oranges in a flow enhancer red glaze. I really like this model and loved painting it. It has some weird parts to the sculpt though, his right side eye is out and his left is recessed, which made for some paint decisions that did not sit well at first but I decided it just makes the model visually appealing and whimsical. Practically speaking, there are join lines down his arms and across his chest that were impossible to remove and it being a US$2.00 model, I wasn't going nuts going all greenstuff and smoother on him; he's badass as-is.

I wouldn't worry too much about the casting lines; the painting is excellent. I certainly wouldn't want my Threshold agents meeting him in a dark forest!

Very cool. How does the flow enhancer work? What brand are you using?

Very nice, I have used a flow enhancer some with some decent results...you remind me I wanted to experiment more with that in the future.

He looks awesome- I hope mine comes out half as good!

Cant wait to get home and back into my painting and playing!

This is the coolest little $2 model I've ever seen. I'm sure I wouldn't give it a second look if I saw it in a bargain bin, but the paint job makes this incredible.

I need you to teach a mixing class. Especially when using flow enhancers. Awesome job.
