PostSubject: Grevy's zebra tutorial, all 3 parts :-)    Tue Nov 25, 2014 9:33 pm

Hi friends!

I just written quite long first part of painting tutorial of the Grevy's zebra model. It has a lot of photos so I would ask you to look at the ready thing I made on my blog (first post on my blog btw)

Here is the link:

http://www.horseandbird.com/blog

And few photos from the first part. I will also inform you all here when the second and maybe third parts will be added.











If you prefer I can as well copy all this tutorial here but I think it would be still quite a lot of work with uploading the images Embarassed

Also, when some of you will start your paintwork on zebra, please post photos of the process, you can then also ask for additional advices. I will try to help Very Happy Questions are also welcome Smile

Thank you for looking here Smile

Thank you very much Anna. Can you tell us the codes of the face and hooves colours? Do you use Vallejo, isn't it?

Thank you for your words LeeAnn, Kiki and Joan. Very Happy cheers

Kiki, it's not so difficult only very time consuming. I think you should try Very Happy Wink

Joan, I mixed these colours actually. The hooves' colour is a black with a small drop of brown and grey (or even smaller drop white if you don't have grey paint). The mouth is painted with colour called golden brown, no70.877 with a small drop of "heavy siena" (72154 - game colours) (I think that are the numbers under the name of colour in front of the bottle?) On the top of that colour of mouth I put some grey dry brush. I will still work on it with pastels later on Smile
