The Cake is a lie...

As I said in my previous post, I've been painting a couple of portals for a friend.
Normally I don't show stuff I paint for others online before the new owner receives it as a matter of courtesy, but Johan gave the go-ahead to show these off early. Per request the portals were painted in blue and yellow, in reference to a certain PC game that deceives you with regards to baked goods. ;)
The stonework was left more subdued.

So, thank you Johan, for letting me paint these and show them off early, I'll get them to you soon! :)

3 opmerkingen:

  1. These look absolutely tremendous! Do you mind me asking what colour you used as a base for the stonework?

    1. Hmmm, I sorta mixed those on the fly, so you'll have to play ratios by eye..
      It's all Vallejo, except where noted otherwise:
      The primer was black. The basecoat I sponged on, it's a roughly 50/50 mix of Very Dark Green and Basalt Grey.
      After that came a wash of (I think it was)GW Cthonian Camoshade, partly because I had mixed my base colour too grey. The wash did deepen the shadows nicely, though. Drybrush on the base colour again. Deepen the shadows where necessary with a black ink (I used Coat D'Arms Armour Ink, but GW's black shade or such would work too.)
      Lighten the mixed base colour with Green Grey, drybrush that and finish with a final light drybrush of pure Green Grey.
      That should do it.

    2. Thank you so much for the recipe, it must be the addition of green, but it looks really great.
