Baroness DeCobray

Next in the Action Force painting queue is Baroness DeCobray, or  Anna von Stromberg if you followed the Battle Action Force origins (which doesn't tie into Hama's GI Joe continuity at all).



This is a really characterful figure that almost painted itself. While painting the Baroness I learned a quick, effective way to quickly paint black cloth that actually looks nice in person and seems to work in photos as well. Black undercoat with a Medium grey drybrush and a light grey highlight brush. Then, rather than black washes that I've tried before, which just make the dry brushing look worse, some glazes of thinned black paint over the top, with neat black being added back in for the deep shadows. I was tempted to try a blue glaze over the top to give it that blue highlight that the comics have, but decided not to in the end.
