So, it's been awhile since I've had a chance to blog. I would say that life has gotten in the way by way of my baby boy and working a normal job. Between the two it seems that time just gets sucked away into a vortex. But I'm really, really going to try and post some more in the future.
With that, here is my Infinity Combined Army Zerat. I personally really like this mini. The pose is spot on and the composition is great. It really gives you a sense and feel of the the wildness of the Morat Aggression force that is on the planet Paradiso, as well as her confidence and strength.
It took me about 25 hours over a month to complete. I feel that I'm starting to slow down a bit. I'm trying to get as much detail as I can and also trying for the smoothest transition with highlights and shadows. I would say that this one was also easier to paint then most Combined Army because the mini its self was very simple.
With this mini I stayed with the Corvis Belli Studio Paint scheme. I loved it and it forced me to use colors that I usually don't choose - namely the pink hair. In the end I was pretty happy with how it came out and I got a great score on Cool Mini or Not.
Again I used Vallejo Model Color.
Here are some of the colors that used for the Zerat:
Pink hair: Black:
Base: Sunset Red Base: Black
Highlight: White Highlight 1: Basalt Grey
Shadow: Blue Violet Highlight 2: Ivory
Base: Basalt Grey + Blue Ink Base: Burnt Cadmium Red
Highlight: White Highlight: Flat Red
Shadow: Dark Prussian Blue +Black
For the base, I used Dragon Forge. The plant is some lichen that I found in the front yard. I think it makes for a great alien plant form. I used Mig and Secret Weapon pigments to give it that dusty
All in all, this was really fun to paint and I highly recommend her.
So here are some WIP pics and the finished piece.
I hope you like,
And as always thanks for looking!
Thanks and happy painting,
