Polda's X-Wing Repaints - Image heavy

Recommended Posts

My favorite here is the Kihraxz, actually. You have a lot of lovely gradients in your work--mind sharing how that's done? (I'm a complete noob at painting.)

 

Hi, thanks for the feedback.

 

Gradients are tough at the beginning but not impossible.

First you need to get comfortable painting with thin, transparent layers.

Then you can add those up on top of each other in smaller and smaller areas to get the gradient. Mixing in some acrylic paint retarder to increase the drying time helps.

 

Something like this. In the example I just took the same colors on the top and painted with them set to 25% opacity. Thinned paint will work similarly.

Tabletop minions made a video about energy blades that is basically mostly about gradients and feathering.

It's fantastic stuff. 

 

Yeah, and make a wet palette.
