After last night's post, +Neil Laughlin asked to see some close-ups of the Ika and here they are. :-)
Painting the Ika was very straight forward. Unlike all other DW models, which were primed white, I primed the Ika black to give it a more menacing and less glorious look.
After that it was two coats of red, one coat of Iyanden Darksun followed by a coat of gold followed by Dark Tone ink, and the tentacles were simply drybrushed with some sort of metal color.
For the water I started with dark green where I continuously added dark blue and a lighter shade of grey in a wet blending process until the ripples started to pop out.
