Looks damn good...and, I'm not really surprised.

GubernatorFan wrote:Encouraging progress. The feet now look pretty much black on the photos. Was it necessary to use this complicated and staining wash? Perhaps it is different in hand. As for the wire, I coudln't really tell from the photos, but is it possible to have it creep along the back of the helmet (and color it to blend in)? You could even find a way to make it look like deliberate detail.

GubernatorFan wrote:It does look very sharp. And very promising. Also, very pleased you have conquered the staining on your hands. And bonus points for the ingenuity of your approach. Wow.

I'd be a bit wary of acetone though, it can eat certain plastics and vinyls.

thanks a lot for all the WIP shots, it's very informative, and a pleasure to watch insane creativity at work
Rogerbee wrote:If you know what you're doing with it then fair enough. Those are some great monster feet, you did a great job on them.
GubernatorFan wrote:Since you mentioned why you used the acetone -- would that be a way to get beyond paint rub in jointed figures? Apply a little acetone and then the paint or marker?

I see what you mean now I look at it from your angle there, hadn't occurred to me it could be construed as flesh! To me it's always been armour, a breast plate like the ancient Greeks had. Not sure what to do now!! Need sleep!
which still might be ok in some cases, e.g., if you gave some figure say red eyes or something). Update: I did go back and notice you also have blueish hands, so you do match the color around a bit. Maybe then showing a little bit of the same would make sense for somewhere around the neck. I would still make it a bit darker and deader as a color for this character, but that's just my taste. wrote:

Sorry to hear about your wrangles with customs. With all the crap going on around guns at the moment I can understand some of their zeal, doesn't make it right though.
Rogerbee wrote:That looks so cool, love the contrast of the black and silver.
GubernatorFan wrote:Whoa! He is huge! And as we know from the ancient Egyptians, bigger is better! I love the intricate helmet, and now one can see it more clearly. I wonder if you could paint some more details (with different silvers and maybe gunmetal) on the shoulder armor, which looks a bit mismatched (because of less detail) right now. In general, I think the overall color scheme ought to match with your ring wraiths in the final product.
GubernatorFan wrote:Indeed, I think you're going in the right direction and very impressed. Glad to hear there will be further detailing on the shoulder armor. If you do devilish flesh in places around the torso, I suppose you will be matching that on the hands and feet. That might match better with the red light you are going to use.
And, again, your Lord of Darkness looks awesome. I've always thought him a quintessential representation of the Devil.
Rogerbee wrote:Blimey, he's a big fella! You wouldn't spill his pint that's for sure!
Stryker2011 wrote:Ooohh. Cool prospects for weapons. It’ll be interesting to see the final flesh effect with the changing tones.
