Inking the wee 15mms
Last week, I wanted to see if I could get a nice shadow effect by painting neatly on an ink wash on white primer. I usually block paint, acrylic wash and highlight but this time, I'd start with neat painting on the inked figure, cutting out the acrylic wash, leaving the ink to give the shadows. I quickly realized this was not a time save but I could see the detail better than painting a figure primed white or black. So THATS why some of you prime black and drybrush with gray before you start!
