A lot of people look at Drybrushing in a negative way but it’s another technique that can and in my opinion should be used. It’s a quick way to highlight but will give it a more weathered look. Which can work for some cloths and leather or on some vehicles. I like the weathered look on my Eldar Vehicles, not too much but just enough makes it look like they are screaming through atmosphere and I don’t think Wraithbone Rusts. 8) … I also like it on some metals to make it have a sheen but not becoming too metal-eee.
But, sometimes I will also use it to blend. And as long as the surface is smooth it will give you a good quick blend. I’m trying to knock out the Falcon on my table and I usually blend their guns so I figured I’d make up a quick step by step to show how I do it and how easy it is.I've been painting these for awhile so I always use the same colors.
dark -Regal Blue
medium - Enchanting Blue
light - Ice Blue
Next I'll start blending the Enchanting Blue into the Regal Blue.
You may have to go back with the other colors if the blend isn't completely smooth. But that's all up to you and how you thing it looks. You can also go back with a wash and cover the entire thing. This can make the blend tighten up. But that is up to you, I didn't do that here as I wanted to show it with just the Drybrushing.
Also here are the pictures of the finished Wave Serpent. I will put some markings on it down the road but not sure what I want to do at the moment.
Tonight I'm hoping to finish out the DW Speeder I've been working on .. I have a full painting night lined up !
