Sorry for not being very regular in my updates. I have been kept busy by the cobblestone street, which was made with split beans and then painted greyish-pink. I then lightened this colour with a little Buff, before drybrushing the street with that colour. To complete the street, a dark brown wash was applied in the recesses.
I have also painted the floor of the building with wood brown, then drybrushing it with desert yellow before a final wash of the darkened base colour.
I was not very happy with the ruin (brick sizes were inconsistent, very unrealistic damage, etc). Thus I removed the whole thing, and will redo it, hopefully by next weekend. Thats why in the pics you can see the aftermath of "UP"!
I have also re-done the concrete kerbs around the footpath, and made them a different colour from the path itself.
hi adrian. fantastic stuff now mate. the figure is looking great and the buildings well came together. ohh, and as mentioned in your last post to me.. i'm not actually going to use the german cycle guy, i only wanted one of their bikes, lol.
Unfortunately when I peeled off the mask just now I saw that some of the pink paint from the cobblestones had actually "bled" onto the inside of the wooden frame, probably because the masking tape was pretty lousy. Besides that there were some multi-coloured stains on some parts of the frame (my fault for being lazy to wash my palette and using the masking tape to mix paint :P ) I think the paint also went right through the masking tape and left a mark on the light-coloured wood. Anyone knows of a solution to this? Im thinking of painting the entire frame black, and then maybe write some sort of poem/verse on it in white (concept was inspired by this awesome build Armorama :: A Rendezvous With Death). Any other solutions? Im wrecking my brains for a creative and original idea. Thanks in advance.
