Rocks Are Never Gray!

That's a lie, but it's controversial statements like that which will get people's attention and this topic is extremely important. Hold on to you seat!

 I always have fun painting rocks, it seems simple saying that but stop judging me. Over the last few months I've been getting a lot of hiking in and I find observing the natural, real-life state of things is the best reference for painting. I'm always taking in my surroundings and asking myself, out loud, how would I paint this? Which is weird when strangers are around but it helps me remember. Everyone is different and so are rocks.

I even found the illusive rusty barrel with the perfect accent color in the wild.

So now you have an excuse to use any color you choose to paint stones, also, try some wetblending and get some variety in tone, some happy accidents :)

Finished! Nagash, Supreme Lord of the Undead.

This project was very intense at times, which probably explains the speedpainting projects I've turned my attention to in Nagash's wake. But always the time is worth it to see the end result. I'm very proud of this one, it's the first time I aimed for more of a monochromatic, atmospheric piece. By mixing a little blue into each color I was aiming to create more of a nighttime scene.

I'll follow this post up with some close ups, but for now enjoy the full body of Nagash.
