I like it a lot!
Finished off my carnosaur as I'd hoped to do, and threw up the pictures in the gallery.
While is is certainly true, I think I'm happy to call this model done for now. The dinosaur itself shows a lot of inexperience so I'll just try to move on to something else and push the highlights even more on whatever I do next. I appreciate the criticism as always.
That is the best approach, call it finished and move on, you can always go back later.
quick wip shots of a chaos knight. photos aren't the best but i hope they get across how much more i'm trying to push highlights, even on the black horse and very dark purple armor.
That is a vast improvement, the highlights are great.
He is a bit lacking in contrast but I guess his weapon and shield will add that if not think about going red or green with his belt.
I agree. I originally went with death world green as a base color for the leather on the knight himself, but decided that particular shade wasn't right and went back to a neutral brown. I did specifically pick a very reddish brown on the horse's leather bits for the reason you say. This is a new color scheme so definitely need to think about what I'll change for the next 4 once I see it fully assembled.
Finished the first of the batch of 5 chaos knights I'm doing. Haven't done much wet blending in the past and I tried to do some on the weapon to give a splash of color as crowsfoot suggested, to kind of mixed results. Still, 6/10 isn't bad for a first real attempt.
Pretty happy with the results on this guy, and very excited to do the rest which I think will turn out even better. Going to try to make the banner look like stitched together human skins with some freehand stuff, which I think will a) take forever b) look really cool.
Excellent and mysterious terrain piece, perfect for multiple scenarios!
Thank you for the kind words!
Those corrupted land bases are actually super easy to do, I just followed a tutorial for lava themed base and did a gradient of colours going from dark purple to white instead of dark red to yellow. The rock is just thin sheets of cork painted black and dry brushed with a light purple. I’m glad you like them!
