    Really happy with how it turned out. The blues is a bit more turquoise in real life but old cell phone camera is what it is.

    The current plan is to do the base in a darker green crackle paste with the same blue/turquoise in some of the cracks with turquoise/green tuffts. I think that will look sufficiently alien and fit in nicely. But other suggestions are welcome.

    The colorless crackle pase is out every were over here and not due in untill some time in may so i got time to change my mind. :slightly_smiling_face:

    Wow dude, that looks amazing!

    What colours did you use for that blue? I've always had issues trying to paint blue that isn't flat or dull.

    Base color is Vallejo Turquoise, then i paint over it with Vallejo bluegreen leaving Turquoise in the recesses and highlight it by blending the bluegreen with Vallejo ivory.
    After that i mixed around 50/50Contrast medium with GW Drakenhof Nightshade and tint the blue and then go back and highlight it again were i feel its needed. That contrast medium with GW washes. :heart_eyes:
    You might try GW Teclis blue and tinting it with Drakenhof mixed with ~30/20% glaze medium. That will get a nice blue.

    If you wanth a warmer blue highlight, mixed it with Ivory.

    But as said in the first post, its a bit more blue in the pic than IRL

    Is the contrast medium what they call Lahmian Medium? I never thought to use that with washes. Gotta give that a try!

    Did you use airbrush?

    No Lagmian is the normal glaze medium. Contrast medium is what is in the contrast paints, you can just by the medium separately. It says Contrast medum on the bottle so you cant miss it.

    No airbrush since i dont own one. A good silent compressor is a bit to expensive and i live in an apartment.
