Darren Latham - Lord of Blights Masterclass - Part 04: Painting the Cloth

Here we are with part 6 and Mr Latham wants us to paint another kind of material/texture to differentiate it from those we have painted before.


Look at that, the illusion of individual fibres/stitching! I remember seeing something similar used on a Bretonnian knight in White Dwarf years ago. Always wanted to give it a go and here was my chance.

The early stage of this section was basically a solid basecoat followed by a wash with a nother layer of wash built up around the lower edges to simulate grime.

Then we were straight into the first layer of building up the stitching with really thin cross-hatching lines over the raised areas.

Successive layers of lines in lighter and lighter colour was built up to add depth to the implied stitching.

When the very last highlights were complete a thin layer of red Contrast Paint was glazed over to bring it all together.

And here are the images of the figure by the end of part 4.

I seem to be really comfortable painting red. I joked to a friend that 90's GW Red Period trained me for this :D

I pretty much flew through this part really quickly and was ready start the next part right away.

And that shall follow shortly, take care.
