Chaos Knight Titan: The Painting Continues

Like my last update where I had completed a step, this is the same sort of update. It’s still very early work, but I have washed the metal on the upper and lower torso. Of course this means I’ve picked out all the details I needed to prior to the wash, like the billion cables and hoses. God, I thought that would never end…

The armor plates that are on there are just resting, they aren’t glued down yet. They also aren’t done, but I wanted to show the work I’ve done on them so far. The leg plate is close to complete, but the shoulder still has a way to go. I’ve found with blending over black that it’s easier to blend it up, and then blend it back down after. It’s just too hard to blend it right the first time out, unless you’re doing super thin coats anyway, like nearly translucent. I’ve found this method gets me good results with less work. So, that means the shoulder plate is brighter than it will be once it’s done. I’m also working on smoothing it out more. I started with a brush that was too small, and it left a bunch of stroke marks. I’ll blend out those stroke marks and then bring it all down a shade or two. I’m also not after super smooth airbrush quality blending either. I like the grittier blending I’ve done. It’s less showroom and more fitting for the model I feel.

The next step, which I’ve started, is those armor plates. I need to get those ready and then tacked into place so I can better visualize the shading on the metal areas, as well as the highlights. I’ll be working, hopefully, a TMM (true metallic metal), approach on the metal, so I’ll need some strong shadows in the right spots, and some bright highlights.

Until the next update!

 

  • So freaking Awesome! Definitely a must check out build up!

    • Still have a very long way to go with this, but I’m happy with the slow and steady progress so far. At least it’s interesting to paint, keeps from boredom and burnout from setting in.

  • Ohhh hat is really starting to come together. I imagine there is a lot of a lot of a lot of tiny things to pick out in it.

    • Thanks. Cables are everywhere on that upper half. The OCD in me had to pick them out even though you’ll hardly see them when it’s all together.

      • I feel your pain on that. I’ve thought I was finished on a model and had to go back and spend hours on the little stuff no one can see unless they shine a light on that spot.

        • It’s a bitch.

  • I really like that bronze to break up all the silver. Might have to steal that for my Leviathan.

    • I’ve used it on a few models with a lot of metal for that reason. I like it because it’s a lighter bronze, and it compliments the metal instead of being a contrast.

    • Just remembered the name of that paint. It’s Runelord Brass.

      • Saw that in the previous post. Now to find time to go buy some.

  • Man, so much awesome.
