The flesh areas
were sealed and I got out the pastels and mixed up Grey,
Dark Green, Dark Blue and Purple, which gave me an
but the Dead skin color I was looking for. This was applied
with a large
brush very gently in several layers.
The shirt had a few coats of Americana Dark Grey drybrushed
with Horizon Grey (which is very light).
The tie had to be that horrible Mustard color that ALL doctors
school teachers wore back in the 70's and thought was very
Drybrushed with the same color with a hint of white added to
The waistcoat and jacket are Americana Midnight Green
drybrushed with Horizon Medium Green which gives the suit a
kind of velvet look.
Onto the best
bit for me.....the internal organs
and guts. Base coated in Citadel Elfin Flesh
which has a nice kind of sheen to it, then I
started with the washes. Burgundy & Brown, Blood Red
to start, once dried I touched in the liver, spleen heart and a
few other bits I didn't recognize with Pink/Burgundy and
drybrushed them with Blue and Red. From my butchering days I
know that rotting guts have a nasty Green tinge to them, so
another wash of Dark Green was added, now I was getting the look
I wanted. All that was left was to add the final blood wash over
the top and gloss the guts.
The base is base coated in Horizon Flat Black drybrushed with
three shades of Horizon Greys, the lettering was base
coated with the same Flat Black and drybrushed with Citadel
Bronze. As a
final touch I added the blood/drool from
his mouth and open neck wounds, for
this I used fishing line dipped in thick
Super Glue to give the drips.
