Hello and Happy May 4th!
Today I’d like to share a PDF Painting Guide for the Tauntaun Riders from Star Wars: Legion:
Naturally I worked from images of Luke in Ep.V to help inform my colour choices, which are somewhat desaturated, but I did my best to capture the look from the film whilst incorporating some subtle changes of colour temperature.
You’ll see that I made judicious use of the Contrast Colours, not just to speed things along, but to help capture the look I was after. Understanding the “weight” of each colour here is important of course, but when used with care I think they’re a great tool to have!
I also really enjoyed playing with the snow effects; I used the Precision Ice and Snow powder here, which is very find indeed, but you could equally use Valhallan Blizzard or something.
Here’s one final shot using one of the awesome backgrounds that comes with Star Wars: Shatterpoint:
I hope the guide is useful to some of you, and May 4th be with you!
PS I’d like to thank my kind patrons on Patreon for funding these guides, and I’d also like to share an affiliate link to the Rosemary & Co Series 8 and Series 33 brushes that I love to use (sizes 1 or 2 – “Short handle”), and here’s an affiliate link to Element Games where I buy most of my other hobby supplies. Thank you!
