Green Stuff: Layering tips
Hey everyone! I'm starting work on my salamanders army and the first place I'm starting is my Land Raider. Today I looked around at what to do for it as far as icons go and since this is vulkan's personal rider (with his termy homies) I needed to spice it up.
So, we that said I needed to put an icon on the front and decided to go with the above image. What follows is the step by step layers I used to create it.
The important thing to remember when making icons, or banners or whatever with GS is that it needs to be done in steps. So take a look at how I worked the layers from back to front to create this image. Between each photo the GS was baked to have it firm up. If I hadn't done that it would have been absolutely impossible to do (for me).
To start out, I measured the top door hatch to the Raider and mapped it on a piece of glass. Then I printed out the appropriate sized picture and taped it to the back as a guide to follow.
After it was done, I just baked it a final time, let it cool and then scraped it off carefully with a razor. Viola!
