HELLBOY - On-line painting article part six

With the coat finished and in my now usual haphazard way I decided to paint the groundwork next! Not so silly as once the grey colour was painted I was able to detail the black feet or boots and then use GW black wash to define the sculpted details and help to add shadows around the feet, something that I try to do on all my models.

In this second photo you can see that I have done some detail painting, the left hand glove, the patch on the right shoulder etc.

I wanted the groundwork on this model to be different to my normal base colours of brown or dark brown. I think the ash waste colour and finish is a good contrast to the red of Hellboy.

I should have all the painting finished soon - it is just detail painting and tidying up, then on to varnishing and flocking.

I have even started to base Abe in the same way - using Lego building bricks, but a full report will have to wait.


It is strange that with the groundwork painted (even though the base sides still have to be tidied up) , the complete figure and base does not look as 'finished' as earlier posts!

This is coming along nicely. It's been interesting reading your step by step report on this project. I look forward to seeing the finished model in all it's glory.

I usually have said that the perfectionist people are normally the winners in life, and this is an example, you made an stupendous job.
