Probing the Probot

Quick daily progress update on the next Infinity miniature in my mad dash to get the squad finished in time for Tuesday night’s game. Well tonight, being a Friday, was reserved for date night with Mrs Von D so I kept the painting time to a minimum when I got home from work.

I decided to start on the Probot and you can see here how the re-worked zenithal prime undercoat really helps with those transitions. Hopefully I can get finished early tomorrow.

  1. Those soft blends! Please tell me you use an airbrush or I’ll cry.


    • 🙂 I used an airbrush to undercoat it and it helps to sort out the lighting and gives the blends a helping hand. But the painted bits – eg white body, orange/black “shoulders” here – are layered/glazed acrylics. I tend to go back after I’ve painted a section with some thinned glazes of a midtone to adjust colour to my satisfaction and smooth things out.

      It gives freedom too as you can be more free when laying down initial colours, knowing that you can come back and adjust things later if needed.
