Very nice paintwork. I've been working with that sort of thing with my T34 (and my Firefly befor that), but I'm still at the simple level. I'll be thinking about working with shading and gradation like that next time . . .

Thanks for taking the time and making comments guys .

Jojjemannen Trevligt och han en med svensk anknytning med i tråden. Well I think cloud-pattern is an old-school-technique. Reminds of colour modulation, but not that extreme. This technique is more subtle, easier to get right and more realistic (at least in my eyes).
You start with a very dark primer/base-colour and then airbrush the chosen base-colour over this, with small circular motions. The paint should be really diluted (75%) so that you slowly build up the colour to its original hue. During this process you avoid panel lines, crevices, edges and so on. These "untouched" areas will now be pre-shaded. When building up the hue on the flat areas, you can chose to randomly let some of the dark primer/base-colour to shine through, adding more life to the surface.

Coops I'm glad if I can be to any help. This is no state-of-the-art-SBS, but it will hopefully show in an understandable way how I reach my final result.

Panzerjaeger I can really recommend this method. If you have any questions for your future projects, let me know.

I did the filters today but I messed up the pictures and as turning back time is a bit hard I'll show you the simplified version.

Note: I use Artist Oils (Winsor & Newton) for this kind of job.

First filter was a highly diluted mix of Yellow Ochre and Burnt Umber.
This was brushed all over the vehicle.


The second filter is from the first one but with more Burnt Umber added.
This was brushed to the lower areas, floor, under carriage, shadow areas etc.


Third filter is more of a precision wash. Same mix as in step two, with Black added but
no Thinner as I want this one to be thicker (doesn't flow that much). Applied around
raised details, along crevecis, under the fenders etc. Just to bring out the details and also
to create shadows.


And this is the final result.


That's it for today.

All the best.

Thanks No_Man_Army.

EDIT: I forgot to add a picture. Just scroll down.

I think I did the final step regarding the base colour today, when I glazed the vehicle in the same way figure painters do.

After these steps I'm now about to paint the rest of the vehicles accessories and equipment in its base colours and then seal it with a layer of semi-gloss varnish. After that it's time for the real weathering.

I used the following colours (Vallejo): Black, White, Prussian blue and Germ. Camouflage Grey, ratio 2:3:0.5:1 .
This mix was thoroughly diluted with water to slowly build up the effect.
For the second glaze I added more white and more water. The picture below show the mix ready for the second layer.


First glaze have been applied. This is done to the flat and "sunlit" areas.


The second, more highlighted glaze on the most prominent areas.


Two shots that better shows the result so far.




EDIT: I've added this picture of the Drybrush-step.



Thanks for looking.

Mattias, this is looking great! I'm happy to see you working your magic on some quarter scale stuff! And thanks for the SBS its really helpful!
As for your dilemma of diorama vs 2 vignettes, I say do the 2 vignettes in a way that you could put them together for a larger scene, it would be difficult, but based on your other work, if anyone could pull it off I think you could

tskross: Thanks for your kind words and that you like my work. I'm leaning towards two vignettes, but nothing is decided yet.

The progress is moving slowly forward, because the base-painting of the details took a lot of time. But now I'm done and it's time for a couple of washes to tie it all together. After that comes the highlight-effects and picking out details and weathering.
I've also brushed a layer of satin-varnish over the vehicle so it too, is ready for weathering.

Two pictures to show the progress so far.




I'll be back

Thanks for hanging on and making comments.

During last evening I got some extra time to spend on this baby, so I started with the classical dot-washes. Two different shades of brown is enough as I'll blend everything together with subtle layers of pigment in the end.

First darker dots applied to the lower parts.




Final lighter layer applied to the upper areas.




Maybe it's just me, but the rounded hood with its grey colours reminds me of the head of the alien monster in the same movie, Alien.

More work to be done today.

Cheers
