Yes, the IMC was a couple months ago, but for those of you that couldn't attend, here's the chance to see what I painted for support. I decided to do a Croak Hunter, to give me more experience working with skin.
For the poison, I first used diluted green ink on the spear he's holding. It didn't turn out too good. So, I decided to use thinned out Ordic Olive, from the PP line. That must be the color they used on the studio model, because when I was done, it looked just like it.
The base was a bit ambitious. I wanted to give the feeling of him prowling through a swamp. The main challenge of this was using the water effect that I used for my Avenger. In an effort to avoid the acrylic bowing down, I put a bit more than usual. What happened was it covered the raised bit on the base that I wanted to use as land. I later thought it was fine, as it gives a visual example of his Amphibious ability. The tall tufts of grass were difficult to put in, as they kept falling over, so I put some rocks around it to keep it standing.
There you have it folks. My prize support for the Fall 2013 IMC. Surprisingly, it went to a local player, Micheal Dillon. Hopefully I can keep this trend up, as the last model I did, Rhupert, went to our very own Ed Hachtel.
Till next time,
