Finally finished my set of Hellenistic Generals for ADLG:
New posts, literally in the case of the first one:
That thump was my jaw hitting the table top – gorgeous.
Is it my eyes or do you have black separating the red and white on those javelin guys in the last pic?
I’ve painted it to trick your eyes!
There’s a pattern made of two highlighted base coats (red & mid grey). When highlighting I leave some of the base coats showing.
Ideally, this creates a red highlight/red/mid-grey/off white transition which tricks the eye and you see it as dark line.
Surprisingly, this makes highlighting a lot easier than straight black lining as it’s much more forgiving.
Wow – that’s both very clever and impressive.
Thank you for sharing the method.
As Andrew said, gorgeous!
