To get started I collected a bunch of seedpods and other plant bits, mostly from Australian native plants. Being Australian plants they are very tough and should stand up to quite a bit of gaming. Now to make them look weird.
I decided to start with a collection of assorted gumnuts.
For the first plant type I simply painted the seedpods black and followed up with a heavy drybrush of dark green and then light green highlighting. The stems will have some bits added later on (I just have to work out which of several ideas look the most interesting).
The next plant type used more of the same types of seedpods but inverted. They were first given an orange basecoat, and finished with a yellow drybrush and a red wash.
The next bits are assorted dried Bottlebrush seedpods.
These were simply given a dark green basecoat and then drybrushed with a light green.
Next up I'm using an artificial plant to make some weird little plants.
The little white clusters were cut off given a red basecoat and drybrushed orange.
Stay tuned for more more mutant/
alien plants soon.
