So the latest Sorastro guides have introduced me to wet blending, a painting technique that teaches a wonderful way to quickly get a lot of colour variation. Sorastro did this on the Rancor and Jabba, however I have been painting Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, so I thought I would start on the Shoggoths.
I wanted to try three different colour variations. A green slime beast that felt like a cross between a squid and seaweed. A purple leather beast that was like a nightmare alien from a horror movie. And a flesh toned creature that was like it was make from human skin, but badly and oozing blood from every pore.
Here is what they look like painted.
I think they came out pretty well. Again this was a quick photo with poor lighting that doesn't show them really well, but you get the idea.
They definitely look more horrible than the pale aqua of the base game.
And they were really quick to paint. I like this technique a lot.
