Kara Sloan: WIP #4

May 26th, 2012

Time to work on the skirt.  While the original artwork has the skirt using the same Cygnar blues as the armor, I liked the departure taken with the studio model with a denim skirt instead, so I followed suit.

Denim skirt with white accents

I did the white accents on the skirt with my usual Jack Bone/Menoth White Highlight mix, tying Kara into the rest of my Cygnar forces.   I then went with gold buttons and silver rings, along with silver bullets with arcane blue engravings.  I based the bullets in Cold Steel, then hit the skirt-adjacent edges with Pig Iron darkened with Thamar Black and then touched a few Quick Silver highlights to the top edges.


Back of the skirt


I’m very pleased with how the skirt turned out.  The denim has a worn look to it and the white has a never-quite-comes-clean look.  I did also throw a base coat on the slate, but it went too brown on me.  Will pull that back more toward gray and need to get Spitfire (her rifle) painted up.
