This WD stands out to me more than most because it introduces me to the Terminator Captain drawings by Jes Goodwin.
So during a discussion with my two other mates the question was asked what's your favourite mini of all time. It was a quick answer for me the Terminator Captain.
It so happens that all three of us had the same mini but never painted it. So it was decided to have a good old fashion paint off.
I have always been intimated by this mini. Always wanting to do it justice.
Now I'm starting add colour and block it in.
I get asked alot about the face. The trick for this is 💯 under painting. I start with a grey base that's been highlighted from the top down creating the gradient then very thine coats of flesh till it sits right. Don't over work it or think it. Make the eyes and lines pop with some watered down brown ink.
1st I went all out trying to recreate one of my all time versions of the mini. That didn't turn out the way I wanted. Some times with free hand you get it 1st go or you just don't get it.
So that's looking mint
