Color Guide: Comic Style Loki

In this Color Guide I cover the colors I used to paint a comic style Loki from Marvel Crisis Protocol.

Loki’s MCP miniature costume is a modern take on his classic design taking traditional comic and adding in some things from the films. For the colors I wanted to go with a more classis feel so I used vibrant yellows and rich greens.

Building Tip:

I painted Loki in two parts. I separated him at the waist-legs and base as one part, and upper body/the rest as the other.  I did this so I could easily reach the back of the legs and inside of the jacket. However you could probably get away with fully building him and painting him in one piece.

Color Guide Purpose: To give painters a lists of paints that can be used to achieve a specific look on their miniatures.  The actual techniques I use can be modified based on the painters skill and desired effect. The hope is to save hobbyist time by providing examples of paint combinations they can use, eliminating the trial and error of finding the correct colors.
