I recently ordered up a 3-pack of wolves from Reaper. Nice models...really like these guys.
I haven't painted dogs/wolves before, so I went straight to the internet and found some good source images. Here were the steps I used to paint a miniature inspired by this image:
The castings were really clean, so very little clean up. I mounted the wolf on a base and glued some sand down. After that dried, the figure got primed white, and then it got the usual dark wash treatment.
I painted up the base before moving onto the figure.
I started with a light golden brown.
Then added in the black patches.
I added a sepia wash, off-white dry brush, and finished the face/nose/mouth area.
I then used this photo as a guideline for my second wolf...
...which is here.
And finally, I worked up a black wolf based on this image.
And here he is.
I liked each of these sculpts...good work, Reaper.
'Til next time.
