The final installment of the Pin-Up Warrior of the Sun!
In this episode I finish off the base, and provide some soft, yellow OSL (object source lighting) around the lanterns she has hanging at her waist.
The base is finished in a gradient from deep blue to green to yellow. There’s also some discussion on the scheme and why certain colour changes were required mid-stride. Some more discussion and focus is placed on moving the viewer’s eye and creating focal points through colour and tonal contrast.

All paints used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise. When a number appears in brackets (X) after a highlight or shade, that is the number of highlights/shades to apply with each subsequent layer requiring more of the listed shade/highlight colour added to the base colour.

Shade 1: Exile Blue
Shade 2: Coal Black
Highlight 1 (3): Trollblood Base
