I’ve been doing a bit of work on Neko Oyama lately. I forgot to take a before picture when I just had him primed, but I will go over the steps I’ve done so far. Before this point I did a base coat of the blue and added a few highlight and lowlight shades and a wash to make the angles and ridges stand out. I then added white on all the ridges to make them stand out.
Between these two pictures I did only three things. I added a glaze to make the teal just a little more blue. I added the base coat to his gun and underarms and inner thigh. I then did the first accent color on his shin guard belt and on the outside of his boots.
His color scheme will be very similar to the Domaru Butai that I recently finished, but I am still debating on the thigh pad and jacket colors. I may do a design on his thigh pads, but I’m not sure yet. I have time to think about it. Leave a comment on your ideas or let me know what you’ve done on your own minis.
