I have been able to spend a little bit of time on my own things since I got some comish work done early and I have been preping to do the freehand work on the Slaanesh Rhino from my Black Legion. Do you guys remember this pic?
I posted it a WHILE ago about how I plan on using this as my inspiration. Now this is where you guys come in. I know that I will do a radial color fade from a light to dark pink, but several questions need to be answered before I pick up the paints. With freehand, always have a plan, so dont just wing it unless you want to be painting over your mistakes soon.
The way I look at this image, I see that it has a necessity of three differences or colors. I have to somehow, separate the skin from the background and then there is of course the black sludge. So, a different color for the back ground, the sludge or ooze, and the body itself.
If you look at this nurgle rhino freehand, you can deduce that I first did a color fade from top to bottom and then used black to draw the images on top of that. I will do a similar technique with the Slaanesh image but the question is, what will be the black image and what is the other color that i should use?
Should I copy the image as much as possible and have the color fade look like some sort of back lighting? Should I use the color fade as the body with the ooze as a different color, yellow perhaps?
Should I use the color fade as the ooze with the body as a different color?
Im interested as to what everyones opinions are on this matter!
