Abomination Highlight Reference


Here you will find shots of the primed abomination as referenced in the new Zombicide: Black Plague painting tutorial (out now on Patreon early access and soon to be released for all).

Taking shots like this can provide a useful point of reference when choosing how to highlight a miniature; we certainly don’t have to be a slave to the references however and experienced painters will happily get by on experience and intuition, but they do give us some useful ideas when getting started with highlighting.

Happy painting!

    Random question. Would zenithal highlighting (priming) have saved time on this step?
    Thanks (just trying to understand how all of this works)

    I know this is so long ago and I cannot imagine you answering this post but looking at your reference shots and the same shots I’ve taken do not come close to what you have above. Now I understand that positioning the light is different. My positioning I have it over head with a slight angle. Still comparing to the back portion of the figure I cannot tell how you got any lighting on the ripped green clothing to define the highlight. Mine is completely covered in shadow regardless of angle I’ve changed it to so I’m fascinated how you took/take your reference shots
