Painted Miniatures By Jarrett Lee
More bugs finished today and a bunch more are WIP.
I have a fast method for doing these guys with one exception: the highlites of the chitenous shells. Basically the edges of all the armor plates. THAT part has three issues:
1) taking too long to do (it's 2 layers and a highlite of the edge with white)
2) I'm not 100% sure about the look - might be TOO harsh in terms of contrast?
3) It's hard to paint lots of it because it's tiny strokes over and over again, which I'm finding hard on my hands. Yes that sounded awful.
One effect I do like, however, is the satin finish of the shells (not overly glossy but not matte either) which I am getting using Satin Varnish from Vallejo Model color line. The effect is quite noticeable in the picture of the zoanthrope below (the tall floaty guy).
