help with color...

Recommended Posts

I would shoot Createx transparent med. grey, in light coats, until I got the shade I'm looking for.  Maybe even shoot the grey on first, and then scale over it with a pearl white.  Then go back and fog as needed with some kind of gold.

I didnt hit this scheme color just right (IMO) but I did it similar to what Mark suggested. I washed the black (flat) back, shoulder and head out with a grayish I made, as I worked down the sides. I used a off white further down to the belly with a transfer to a pearl white belly. I then put on the mesh for scales and finished the head and full plate with a flat green. Then the gold to complete. I did do some fins and a light out line of the plate. All createx back then. My suggestion is to use a flat/matt clear coat on most natural schemes. To me it's more natural then the glass finish look.

Hope this helps,

Dale

I use a light shot of burnt ocher, which is basically a dark muddy brown dirt color.

My advice would be to very lightly lay down some gold pearl mixed with a drop or two of transparent brown. Then go over it with transparent green mixed with a little transparent brown. Add a very small drop of black to that and hit the darkest areas. The lighter you spray the better.

Looks to me like you should use wicked detail moss green,but maybe lay down gold lightly first then go with the moss green where it's needed then mist gold overall the top
