This is a post that I have been wanting to do for a long time. Since the BB Orc team is all posted, and my prep post from the Stone bases is done…it’s time!
You see, this is about how YOU would tackle something! Yep, that’s right. Like a bad episode of the Twilight Zone (or Black Mirror, for you youngsters!) … You’re trapped, don’t go looking for the exit! Grab your imaginary brushes, paints, and every paint trick in your book!
First, I’m a big fan of the Otherworld Miniatures line. The miniatures they produce are really nice and have a very nostalgic early Dungeons & Dragons feel. Their display minis look really nice, and the painter(s) make it look deceptively simple. I purchased a few, and tried to replicate the same techniques. Now, lighting and whatnot are going to make the minis look very different. But getting as close as possible, is the key.
So, for the next three minis….”How would you try and replicate the
look of paint job on these minis?” Feel free to note any paint colors, techniques, what have you?!
The main characteristics I noticed on this D&D Ooze, was that nice yellow, with darker brown tones. Also a sorta dry, cottage cheese look.
Looks a bit glossy, dark grey-black. I also noticed a gelatinous, almost translucent edge to the thing. Not sure where I’ve seen that sort of thing in real life before, maybe some sort of rubbery toy when I was a kid? It definitely stood out to me and I wanted to capture it.
Very glossy. Has a bubbling appearance and possibly highlights in the bubbles, or maybe it’s just catching overhead lights? Green and slimy.
