An In-Depth Look at Greedy 3D's Alien Egg Masterpiece Using Neoeco NCT-SJ83 Airbrush

3D painting is an incredible creative outlet that allows artists to bring their unique designs to life. Notably, some artists even take their printed 3D models and offer them to the public. In this article, we'll explore the remarkable work of Greedy 3D, a dedicated YouTuber specializing in 3D painting and creations. Greedy 3D recently used the Neoeco NCT-SJ83 airbrush in conjunction with a NCT-200K compressor to paint an alien egg, achieving impressive results through a straightforward process. Let's delve into the details of this exciting project.

The Process

  1. Applying the Primer: The project began by applying a black primer to the model using the SJ83 airbrush, ensuring an even and complete black layer.

  2. Cleaning the Airbrush:Before switching to a different color, thorough airbrush cleaning was essential to prevent color contamination. Neoeco airbrush wipes were used for efficient cup cleaning.Cleaning the Airbrush
  3. Adding Color:To introduce color to the alien egg, Bullwhack Brown paint was used, mixed with a few drops of thinner for the right consistency. Charred Bone paint followed, covering the egg while allowing some black to show through for contrast.Adding Color
  4. Emphasizing Veins: Angel Green paint was used to emphasize veins on the egg's surface, enhancing its visual appeal.Emphasizing Veins
  5. Creating Shadows:Earth Shade paint was applied to create a shadowy effect at the base of the egg, adding depth.Creating Shadows:
  6. Adding Vibrancy: Green Glow paint was reapplied to liven up the egg's appearance.Adding Vibrancy
  7. Introducing Red: Pure Red paint was used on the top of the egg to create a focal point, leaving room for further adjustments.Introducing Red
  8. Toning Down with Fey Pink:To balance the red, Fey Pink paint was applied around the edges, preserving the red center.Toning Down with Fey Pink
  9. Enhancing the Center: Angel Branches paint was used at the center, with a touch of green to add dimension.Enhancing the Center
  10. Realism with Washes:Washes were applied, followed by a layer of metal varnish to provide a glossy finish and protect the painted layers.Realism with Washes
  11. Base Layer: Leather Brown paint was applied broadly, creating a solid brown base all over the egg.Base Layer

  12. Lightening Up:Bleached Bone paint lightened the overall appearance of the egg.Lightening Up
  13. Shading with Earth Shade: Earth Shade paint was meticulously applied to various areas, with excess paint wiped away using a tissue.Shading with Earth Shade
  14. Dry Brushing for Texture: Dry brushing techniques were employed to add texture using Skeleton Bone color.Dry Brushing for Texture
  15. Adding Detail:Fey Pink paint was delicately applied to the interior section of the facehugger's protrusion, followed by a touch of red. The colors were merged using a dry brush.Adding Detail
  16. Highlighting Legs: A light color, Bleached Bone, was dry brushed across the outer legs of the facehugger.Highlighting Legs
  17. Protective Varnish:Gloss varnish was applied as a protective layer to safeguard the paintwork from smudging.Protective Varnish
  18. Creating a Wet Look: The same gloss varnish was used on the egg to achieve a wet and shiny appearance.Creating a Wet Look
  19. Finishing Touches:Desert Highlights paint, combined with dry brushing, completed the facehugger's painting.Finishing Touches
  20. Create a speckled effect:Employing a stiff brush and immersing it in Martian brown paint. Proceed to flick this brown paint across the surface of the dried egg.Create a speckled effect
  21. Liquid Mask:Liquid mask was applied liberally to the petals of the egg, creating a rubbery and membranous effect when peeled off.Liquid Mask
  22. Peeling Liquid Mask:The liquid mask on the egg was peeled away in patches, creating a membranous appearance.Peeling Liquid Mask
  23. Achieve a wet and glossy appearance: Gently apply a thin coat of gloss varnish, ensuring not to use an excessive amount, as it may impart a subtle pinkish hue.Achieve a wet and glossy appearance
  24. Simulating Slime: UV resin was used to create the appearance of slimy drool on the egg. The resin was allowed to drip naturally and solidified using a UV light.Simulating Slime
  25. Securing the Facehugger:UV resin was used to attach the facehugger to the egg, blending the transition between the facehugger and the surrounding slime.Securing the Facehugger
  26. Adding More Slime: UV resin was applied to the facehugger to simulate additional slime and drool, solidifying it with a UV light.Adding More Slime

This project showcased that with the right tools and techniques, remarkable 3D painting effects can be achieved easily. Greedy 3D's creative process demonstrated the potential of the Neoeco NCT-SJ83 airbrush and its compatibility with various paints and materials, making it accessible to artists looking to bring their visions to life.
