I just finished to paint a Tauro Bust at scale 1/20.
It is my first ever painted bust, so it has been a good training for me. it has been quite difficult to paint it because there is not a single flat surface, everything is strongly textured. I made the basework with the aibrush before taking the brush.
The basecolor is a mix of dark flesh (gw) / bronzed flesh (mc) / Cryx Bane Base (p3). I highlighted it with more bronzed flesh and later some Ivory (mc). Shadows are done adding more and more Cryx Bane Base to the base, and a tip of black at the end. Then i added some nuances with thinned asurmen blue (gw), baal red (gw), thraka green (gw), blood red (gw) and wurm green (p3).
Very simple there, the base is done with scorched brown (gw), shadowed with dark sea blue (mc) and highlighted with orange brown (mc). Ivory (mc) for the edges & scratches. Then i covered it with thinned sepia ink to add a little bit of glossiness.
The base is done with boltgun metal, shadowed with black, highlighted with mithril silver and chrome (model air) for the final spots. Then i added some rust pigments and some glazes of jade green (gc). I also added some very light nuances with juices of scorched brown and wurm green, but it's hard to catch it on the pictures.
