I have finally got my airbrush back, so have set to getting my Wolves started.
Firstly I decided to go with the Black Library Fluff about the colours of Freki and Geri (one is near white and the other black).
So here is Geri
I did her fur with a nice coat of Corax White, followed by targeted Nuln oil to her shadowed and scraggy areas using an airbrush. I also did a thin seraphim sepia airbrush to her neck and upper chest to show staining from blood, as well as around her . . . never regions. . . cos' those Thousand Sons gotta come out from somewhere. . .
Targeted highlighting will be done later to soften the darker areas.
Freki on the other hand is a lot more of a difficult prospect to paint as he is black. So a Chaos black base, followed by a zenithal of Corvus Black was the route I chose. As with his sister, a highlight of the fur will be done to try to make him not so flat. Weathering powders around his paws might be a good idea though.
I also chose to do 5 other wolves. One black, one white, 3 mixed browns, black and white. These were all done with Nuln oil, Seraphim Sepia, Corvus Black and an airbrush.
Hopefully I will get round to finishing them soon, but the mouths and claws do look tricky.
