Here's how we paint our Headsculpt Castlebrimstone way!!
for boring write up see my blog eh? http://blog.castlebrimstone.com/?p=499
Warning!!! Its kinda a strange technique .... hope you guys dont get shocked
Our method could be broken down to 6 process as below :-
Process 1 has been shared before .. we'll focus mainly on process 2 to 6 here
The following is a quick (but lotsa pics) guide to do it....
Process 2 - Applying Base Coat and Painting Hair/Eyebrows
HS with base coat applied using airbrush and the hair/eyebrow painted. The 5 o'clock showdow is also applied using airbrush.
Process 3 - Toning by applying Pastel Dust
the pastels - mainly used are raw umber, red brown, burnt sienna, orange and red
pastel powder applied to the hs using a narrow tip brush
raw umber applied here
red brown now and then red....
hmmmm it looks like a friggin zombie - yipes!!!
Process 4 - Blending the Colors
To the rescue - here's a bottle of water/plant spray...
Misting the HS with water and with this process the pastels get disolved
Using a broad soft bristle brush... the blending process begins
Here's the result at this point ... aint over yet
Process 5 - Refining Toning and Blending
Repeating processes of applying pastel powders and blending for orange and red.... that should do the trick
Process 6 - Applying Matt Varnish
Last process - applying matt varnish - we use future floor polish mixed with Tamiya flat base to obtain a flat finish. The flat coat is good for protection and brings the HS to life
Taaaa - daaaaa!!!!
Average time to finish a HS (excluding process 1) would take 1 - 1.5hrs....
