This is a demo of Sam's Terracotta soldier, the whole thread can be found here.
I am trying to do the June challenge even though I will not be eligible to participate as I am hosting the contest.
I decided to do a terra cota soldier from Xian China.
I took photos there just recently so That has come in handy for this project. I will be doing this in all green tones.
Here is the sketch
For the background I decided to play first with stippling from the stippling thread. For me blowing across a piece of acetate gave the greatest control.
Then I airbrush through batting to get a mottled look.
I kept alternating between the two stippling and batting till I achieved this.
I will start the rest tomorrow.
