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 :lol

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!!! :eek


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.... :)

Great process Loco. Thanks for taking the time to do it and take all of the pictures and writing out all of these tutorials.
I think I can apply it to my own paintjobs, at least until the airbrushing bit since I lack that and the polish/flatbase.

Nice work there!

Is there a reason why you don't fix the pastels before applying the varnish?

Lastly, who is that HS? He has a great look.

CHEERS!

Very Good. I'll put in a written request to THE ARCHIVER, to have this tutorial saved in the OSW Hints and Tips Vault.

Nice job

Definitely a unique approach, can you elaborate on your clear coat - what is the percentage break down of Future to Tamiya?

p.s.: I love the vitamin storage box turned into a pastel container, the sand paper underneath the covers is ingenous.

Interesting technique, indeed, with good results. Question, though:

Do you keep repeating the process outlined in step 5 until you get the level of color saturation seen on the head in the first photo in step 6? There seems to be quite a bit of difference between the color level in those two photos. Thanks!
