Dawn at Helms´Deep
Hello, I am spending intense nights at my desktop :)
I had a very hard time of testing painting white clothes.(it is rally difficult) .. i followed the very useful tips from Phil C in his blog and several messages (for instance http://philotepsfigures.blogspot.de/search/label/painting%20technique), but I like the result at the end :)
Here is Gandalf the White arriving to Helms deep when the Party is almost over.. :)
Some lighter pics:
the trick is starting with a pale grey layer, then highlighting with differente white tones..
My wife thought however at the begining that he was too uniform, so i changed the base layer of the cloak to a yellowish "crude" mixture (as in the film is actually) , whereas the horse and the beard and hair of magician was greyish fromn the very beginning.
So i gained a little contrast between all three "materials": tunic, cloak and fur/hair..
