Painting Update: Winter Wolf

Dear Readers, like most everything lately for this Blog, I haven’t done one of these for awhile. But it’s back!

I was given a few commissions and I have been severely remiss in showing you all (and the person who is paying me to do them!) my progress as I paint.

It doesn’t help that I have had little time to paint.

That said, here’s where I am at:

I got this, a WizKids winter wolf that I began by painting white (duh, right?)
Then I highlighted it with a very light blue to get the more “winter wolf” and not just a wolf that happens to be white!
I painted the eyes black. Creative choice, but I thought a good one.
This is where things got a little dicey. I wanted to paint the gumlines, especially since. They are so prominent on this miniature. I used black with pinkish red splotches, kind of like you see on canines.
It turned out okay. I’m happy with the final results. As you can see, I chose a bone color for the teeth.
This is where things got fun. I used Army Painter’s Glistening Blood to mottle the nose, making it look like he’s recently fed.
I had to redo the nose and redo the blood on the nose as it didn’t look right to me at first.
Then I added basing (snow, of course).

The only thing I hadn’t taken a picture of was that there is now a blood pool in the snow under his mouth. That was cool. I took a drop of the Glistening Blood and just plopped it into the snow below the muzzle and it spread like dripping blood would have done. I’ll see if I can find a picture of it for next time.

Well, that’s all I have for today, Dear Readers! What do you think? What could I have done differently? Let me know in the comments section below.

Until next time, Dear Readers…
