Painting Figures Advice
« on: May 05, 2022, 02:56:12 pm »

I am not a painter  by any means and struggle due to an issue with my hands.

I wondered how people find painting eyes etc. This figure is 1/12 Scale.

Ahh Nick that would be awesome thanks buddy.

The Head, Body and Legs are designed to be separate to make it easier.. but the building up of colour etc I would like to refine :)

I used a texture primer on the clothing to make them feel worn than real than silky smooth.

The main bit of advice I received was not to paint them pure white, tint them with a bit of yellow. Also lots of good tutorials on YouTube.
