ASSASSIN’S CREED (black clothes-brush) / ASSASSIN’S CREED (ropa negra-pincel) – AG
Sorry Painters 😉 – there are more and more episodes on Assassins… Today’s topic is “How to paint a black coat” First we will apply highlights The base coat is BLACK (70.950), and it has been already applied But first of all we will add all the colors to the palette We put some BLACK (70.950) A bit of BLACK GREY (70.862) too Shake up the bottle properly GERMAN C. BEIGE WWII (70.821) BURNT UMBER (70.941) DECK TAN (70.986) These will be the colors we will use to paint the cloak Firstly we add a couple of drops to the BLACK GREY (70.862) And let’s apply the first highlight It’s crucial to only load a tiny bit of paint We apply the first highlight on the upper part of the cloak Pay close attention as I apply it on the upper wrinkles Now I am applying the first highlight to the arm On this raised part where you can see the cloak Keep applying the paint and blending it with the BLACK (70.950) If you find it difficult, you can mix BLACK GREY (70.862) with a bit of BLACK (70.950) To paint the upper wrinkles a trick is to use the side of the brush to apply the paint This way the paint will remain on the upper areas Highlighting black is arduous, and we have to go about this little by little Apply the paint, let it dry, and then repeat Always remember that, little by little, the colour will get stronger I’m applying more highlighting layers on the upper parts Don’t forget to outline the cloak, all over this edge A piece of advice when highlighting is to apply the paint on the upper areas and drag it down In this way more paint remains on the upper areas than on the lowest Here you can see the final result For the second highlight I will add a bit of GERMAN C. BEIGE WWII (70.821) to the BLACK GREY (70.862) Just a bit We add some water too Thus we get a mixture Pay close attention to the square in the top left We make the mixture and load the brush a bit – the paint must be so thin Where to apply the second highlight? In the same places as the previous step but reducing the highlighting surface Observe how I apply the second highlight on the upper wrinkles What if the paint is too thick? It would be hard to get a proper blending effect Then the best practice is to use thin paint to blend it with the previous color properly We paint this part of the cloak It’s a very important part because under the cloak there is an arm which is raised, and thus it will produce volume We have to highlight this part leaving the lower part in shadow Observe how I place my fingers to get more control of the brush Pay attention to the upper wrinkles Pay attention that I am applying some thin touches of paint to get a better blend As the paint is more diluted, we will achieve a better result Here there is the final result For the third highlight I will add DECK TAN (70.986) to the previous color Take a bit and mix them together We also add some water Pay close attention as I am loading precious little paint onto the brush I apply this highlight to the upper parts The contrast between highlights and shadows is starting to show The area to highlight is smaller than in the previous step It is crucial to outline the edge of the cloak I am adding soft touches This will add a bit of texture to the cloak A piece of advice if the blending effect is not good enough, take the previous color and fix it Observe the brushstrokes – there are soft touches to create texture on the cloak Now I will take a bit of BURNT UMBER (70.941) I add water to get something like a wash Why? I get a dirty effect to apply to the cloak and also add some hue Observe that the paint is more diluted Rest the paint on the lower part and blend it I am adding soft touches of black to shade it more Pay close attention to the dirt and grime effect Right now I paint soft points like stains I use GERMAN C. BEIGE WWII (70.821) mixed with BURNT UMBER (70.941) In that way we will get a black coat with tones, texture, and a dirt effect A very interesting cloak! That’s the final result The shadows I take a bit of BLACK (70.950) A bit of BLACK GREY (70.862) I will mix them and add some water Now I will apply this mixture on the deepest parts of the cloak In this way we will get contrast This step is crucial The paint must be very thin to get good result If we apply the paint too thick, the result will be bad By adding water we will get a proper mixture – be sure to go slowly Apply the paint, let it dry, and then repeat It is crucial to apply these shadows on the lower parts On the upper parts we will apply it softly Notice I apply the paint on the lower part and then I drag it upwards This way we get more paint on the lower parts than in the upper areas But when highlighting we do it in the opposite fashion I apply the paint on the upper part and then I drag it downwards Applying these thin layers we get a good result This is the final result To contrast between highlights and shadows Mission accomplished!
