Celtic Vampire

Celtic Vampire - I looked for this figure sculpted by John Rosengrant for three years before Tammy found one for me. I was a lot of fun to paint.

I have to ask what your painting technique is for painting such a perfect looking tartan plaid on the cape. I've tried this in the past using red, white, and greens for a specific plaid, and it was very difficult, especially when the folds in the cloth are taken into account.

Thanks Guys.

 

The plaid was accomplished by starting with a green ochre and shadowing with a cork brown and highlighting with yellow ochre. Then, to get the lines straight, I use flexible car pin stripes and pencil in the lines for the crossing pattern. Then I painted the striped with a dark grey and darken the crossed lines with German grey. I then highlight and shadow the greys and blacks. Then a final thin strip of German Grey and cork brown. All paints were Vallejo. Then added a couple of very light washes with green ochre and German grey to dull it down. That's it. I have a 54MM highlander that I am going to do in the McLean tartan. I will use the same technique in a much smaller scale.

He's fantastic! I always liked this kit, but could never figure out why the vampire was still "alive." I guess the stake didn't go quite far enough.
