Predator is one of my favorite
characters to make and paint, he can be so many different
and shades that no two kits are ever the same. This Predator
was base coated
in an off white/brown then the stripes dry brushed
in dark brown then lighter brown.
For the dark areas on the
face & around the eyes I used ground up pastel
this is a new technique for me and
one that I really enjoy. They call it the poor mans
and it does leave the color faded around the edges like an
airbrush, give it a
go you'll be surprised at the effect.
His Armour is copper dry brushed
with brass then washed with a light coat of black
it. The strips of leather around his arms, legs and holding
the skull and
spinal column are very thin pieces of an old car
chamois (for leathering off your car)
that I cut then
painted light brown.
