Dino Update

Here's the daily update. Didn't get too much done abit lazy. Painted the rough colours across most of the model (decided to focus on the dino 1st).

The Metals were decided and a basecoat of tin bits was applied for all the parts which i would later paint to become steel or gold. I find tin bits to have good coverage for the later metal paints i would be using later.

The underbelly of the beast was painted with a mixture of GW shadow grey + Vallejo US field drab. Then progressively lightened with Vallejo Deck Tan. This was done through layering. When i was done with this part i realized that it looked like a shark!!! Ok la... :P Anyway its gonna be on a snow base like all my other marines so i think it should be quite suited.

The interior of the mouth was painted and the highlighted. The details of the teeth and claws were then done in the usual manner.

The scales were then painted using shadow grey + black + midnight blue. And then lightened with shadow grey and finally lightened with space wol grey.

The eyes were a problem coz i decided for a green glow at 1st and then discovered that i didn't like it. Repainted over with red eyes instead.

Hopefully there will be more progress tomorrow. Thanks for watching. All your comments are much appreciated.
