Carson was finished towards the end of last year, so here’s me catching up.
I always thought of Carson as a ‘Grey man,’ moving in the background, unseen and unheard, and so I painted him as such… Okay, in the card art he appears to wearing grey too!
He’s not the most dynamic figure going, is he? He looks like he should be holding a teapot or something in his left hand, or maybe, he’s just been caught doing something he shouldn’t!
I haven’t got much to say about him really, other than I painted him using a few WWII ship colours!
His suit, for example, was basecoated Black and then layered up with AK’s 507A – Admiralty Dark Grey. I highlighted with Dunkelgrau-2 and again with Dunkelgrau-51 (both AK), two German ship colours. Why did I use these colours? Well, because I could. I’d not used these paints for anything other than ships, but there’s nothing saying they can’t be used on other stuff too.
I also added Dungelgrau-51 into each layer of the flesh. So, I started with a basecoat of Tan then layered up with Tan + Dunk 51, highlighted with Pale Flesh + Dunk 51, and finally glazed over with a mix of all three colours.
That’s it for Carson, nowt else of interest here!
