Need help with my glazing, I'm at a loss!
« on: February 22, 2019, 05:36:45 pm »
Hi all, figured I'd come for help here as the quality on here is much higher than myself.

I'm trying to learn glazing, I've followed tutorials on YouTube and pdf files of it, and I just can't seem to work out where I'm.going wrong with it, the end result looks god awful and I'm at a loss as to what I'm doing wrong.

 I've tried thinning my paints with Lahmian medium, Vallejo glaze medium and water. I've followed the guides to how thin the paint should be (paper towel trick, etc).

I'm blocking in my highlights with a base of Kantor Blue, and highlights of Teclis Blue, with a mid tone of the two mixed, the base to midtone glaze seems to work but when I start glazing the highlights transition, it starts to look like crap. Tried less thinned, and thinner paints and still can't get it to work.

Attached some pics of the abominations here

Any advice or help is much appreciated!! Thanks!

Are you glazing with a Lm/paint mix? I'd maybe not glaze to your highlight. Glaze between your kantor and mid tone, then layer and feather up to your highlight. Glazes are more for dragging from light to dark into your shadows, not taking up a Highlight.
