I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, as this is the first time I’ve touched my computer in a little over a week and I was behind as it was!
So, here’s Viper. I finished her a couple of months ago, if not more, and so I’m a bit hazy on how I painted her – good job then, that I keep notes, of a sort!
Straight of the card art for this one, as I knew little about her and Yasmin, who’s roster she was for, was happy with that.
Green again… The coloured metal parts of her suit were done with a basecoat of Gloss Black followed by one of Vallejo’s Metal Color Steel. This was then drybrushed with Silver and inked over with Black Green Ink.
The rest of the suit was basecoated with Heavy Green then layered up with Goblin and Snot Green, with a few mixes of the two in between. I then made a glaze with the Snot Green and went over it all to blend it together. Highlights were added with Escorpena Green (one of my favourite colours from Vallejo) and then re-glazed.
There’s not much else to say about her really, other than my choice of sword colour. I went with blue, something that would play against the green rather than compliment it. After basecoating with Stonewall Grey, I used a variety of mixes of Elfic Flesh, Pale Blue, Glacier Blue, and White. I quite like how it came out – it gives the weapon a cold look that catches the eye!
I’m up to date when it comes to Marvel figures now. Things have slowed down on the MCP front since Yasmin started at college. I had hoped we’d get it to the table over the half-term hols, but other things got in the way. I’m sure Santa will deliver some more characters to add to our rosters but until then I’ve plenty of other things to be getting on with…
I’ll finish off with the rest of the photos I took…
