Painting Water Tutorial


Hi everybody Ryan here and in this video, I’m gonna show you how to do the ocean base for the sea serpent from Blood Rage So if you remember I showed you how to paint the sea serpent for Blood Rage and Now I want to show you how I did the ocean down here on the base Now this is gonna be a darker angry ocean. Look we’re basing everything with the Fang I’m gonna lay in some Hex Wraith flame and then Sotek green and Then ultimately I’ll be shading a few things with Drakenightoth and I’ll pick up my highlights with Finrisian gray and a pure white so you can see here. I’m just gonna go ahead and lay in the Fang I’ve got this watered down about 50% So it’s pretty thin and I’m just kind of going through here Getting into all those little pockets There’s a lot of little pockets on this that you want to make sure that you get I’m also being very careful Near the top here, then I’m not getting that splashed up on to the body But if you do there’s actually some ways of making it just sort of blend in there and hitting it with the foamy white Highlight so it’ll be okay. Don’t worry. So that’s everything based twice and then dry What I’m doing now is laying in that Hex Wraith green. It’s gonna give us that green angry color that you’ll see When you live on the ocean You want to really make sure that that base is dry before you put this in there and then let that dry before you do anything else I only did one coat here But you see that green tint so next I’m going in here with Sotek green again. This is watered down and I’m laying this in it’s pretty thin and I’m not worrying about getting Every little nook and cranny. I just want to Layer in This this translucent look it’s a very thin mix and if I’ve got too much in there I’ll actually dab, my brush dry and Try to get that liquid out of those pockets This is that Sotek dried and You can see that it’s really starting to find this nice gray green look that you’ll see in a stormy day out on the ocean Fenrisian gray is what I’m gonna do next and I’m gonna pick up highlights on the edges of these waves So to make sure that I hit the tops of the waves finding all of the edges of the sculpt This one you’ve got quite a bit more freedom. I’m trying to stay away from hard straight lines Just follow the line of the sculpt. Now. This gray is not as then I Don’t want a too watery because I don’t want it to run away Some of these flat areas I do want to go ahead and hit and highlight but I’m not laying it on too thick and I’m not getting down into those recesses This one’s gonna take a little bit of a while But I’ll do that all over the piece here on the base and even here you can see the effect starting to come through Here it is all dried up now, I’m just using a pure white base and it’s really almost It’s really almost a dry brush technique that I’m using I’m not I’m not thinning this down at all I know sometimes some of you you don’t like it when I do that, but I find that it works really nicely to pick up this idea of foam up here on the tops of these waves It’s a pretty thin brush going right over really lightly really gentle Yeah, I’m just picking up these edges still it’s a bit of a slow process but just barely getting the brush on there But you can see how it’s starting to pick things up and make it look like foam Along the edges and tips of these waves and this is our finished product. You can see how it kind of comes up from the Darker color of the ocean we’ve got that green and the gray layered in all the way up to the crashing waves And the white foam up Along the side of the body of our sea serpent and now with both of those you can have a pretty great Piece out there on your game board.
