    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.

    knight 1.4.jpg
    knight 1.5.jpg

    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.

    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!
