Hey All, Eric here. I am nearing completion on the painting of Samus so I thought I’d do an update.
It’s been super fun working on this project. Working with a new medium (oil) has been much more rewarding than I thought it would be. It actually matches my natural tendencies really well as I love doing really smooth blends in my paint.
In a lot of ways it’s easier than acrylics, because I can work on blending the paints over the course of days instead of trying to mix on the model.
The only thing left is to paint the sword. It’s pretty bland right now. I never feel totally comfortable painting swords for some reason. 🙂
Next up for Samus is basing. I am planning on making it an action scene, I want to recreate the scene in Know No Fear when Samus possesses a Word Bearer commander after he goads an Ultramarine into killing him.
Hope you enjoyed. 🙂
