|Knight Models Logan - WIP base and clothing|
|Wolverine's white singlet which was used as reference for painting|
Starting from zero again, I was then perplexed by how to get a white singlet to show texture. In the end, I settled for a hint of the texture. To achieve that, I painted fine lines of light grey on the white singlet and then layered on a very thin wash of white to mute the overall effect. Admittedly, the end-result isn't as good as it should be but at least it wasn't a total failure. In fact, I had actually painted in a random mixture of blue, purple and black washes for the singlet's shadows but it all came to naught as my efforts in painting the texture caused the shadows to look largely greyish in the end.

Both Logan's belt and shoes were painted to simulate leather - light brown leather for the former and dark brown leather for the latter. Meanwhile, work on the base was also very stratightforward and invloved some simple drybrushing followed by the gluing of some patches of grass.
|Much work lies ahead - Logan's skin, face, hair and claws|
|Belt was painted to depict light brown leather with shoes as dark brown leather|
At this stage, there have been no 'special effects' such as blood or dirt painted on the clothing. But I am still undecided as to whether to even paint such effects as I kinda like how a pristine Logan looks ala The Wolverine movie posters. Next up will be the most difficult phase of the Knight Models Logan miniature, the painting of his skin, face and hair. So please stay tuned for that. Peace out.
