Odd-toed Ungulate Or Rhino

I finished up this bad boy the other week, but hadn’t gotten around to posting it until now.

If you’re curious about the arrows you can find out how I did them here.  Thanks for stopping.  Cheers!

  1. Wow, oni, sexxxy! I've gotten my Rhinos about that dark overall (http://ondeathswings.blogspot.com/search/label/Painting), but I don't know about that highlighting. I mean I love it, but I don't know how I could do that with my skills. Do you have any articles on how you get those thin highlights or a video showing it off? Oh, and what kind of varnish or hard coat do you cover your tanks in?

  2. @ SynnerG - Thanks for the comment. I'm sorry to say that I do not have any videos. I have a post that describes the overall technique, but applied to a different model (Imperial Bastion) and then a comment reply to that post that describes it a bit more in detail.

    Post can be found here - http://pitoftheoni.blogspot.com/2009/07/imperial-bastion-stage-by-stage.html

    ...and if you scroll down a bit you'll see my long comment where I go into detail about my drybrushing technique.

  3. Oh... as for the varnish. None of my models or scenery are varnished as I haven't found one that is 100% reliable.

    Here's a link to probably the most horrifying varnishing disaster to ever come to this hobby.

  4. Ah thanks for the links! I just assumed a varnish was used by the glossy look on some of the tank. Is that maybe from like a heavy dark wash you added last?

  5. Nah, that's just some odd reflection from the light source. I don't use a light-box or anything to difuse glare.
