Thanks Cam.
Glad you think so, it's tough to get that feeling without using purple (often the colour of the rich and powerful).
Next job is...erm... the sword, maybe... need to have that ready for when I do the ghosty bits.
I can also start on the outside of the cloak...

Cloak update today.
I've been back and fourth over the outside of the cloak. I base-coated it black and then attempted to add the thin lines to give it a similar texture to the inside. However, over black the grey lines just showed up far too much and eventually made the cloak look grey and not black. So I washed it over with black and tried again... Then washed that over with black again as it still wasn't looking right.

I then settled on giving it a couple of dry-brushes with 2 or 3 greys and then did only a few lines in certain areas.


The white will be bright red (a bit like the blood angel in the background, who is nearly finished and will be posted up in my main blog soon), and the fur will be a light (but not as light as the inside) brown.

Thanks

Some sort of leering daemon-thing was my bet, so I pained it (and all the other bits like it) as such, like something trying to enter from the warp or whatever.

Looks great so far! Lovely blending on the cloak interior and armour, the cross hatching looks great, not something I usually see

Yeah, what I'm seeing at the moment is a one-eyed thing, with it's mouth full of a large ball (probably another chaos eye). I'll see what I make of it when I come to the ghost/warp painting stage.

Thanks. Yeah, I like to try new things and I'm making use of these commission models to do so. Give them that unique touch that hopefully helps them sell (doesn't appear to have hindered their sale anyway).

I have now done the red bits. These should contrast with the planned green-y ghosty bits...


Still have to start on the ghosty bits, but I may do the fur on his back next.

How's this for fur?
There's a bit more variation to the colour than is apparent in the photo, so it's probably a bit too subtle.

Thoughts, improvements?

I would be tempted to put a sepia wash over it, but please do not listen to me. Maybe just a darker bit in the middle if you get my drift

You can't give out advice and then tell people to not listen to it... Unless you're doing that double-bluff thing whereby telling people not to listen they end up doing what you want...

Anyway, What I see you saying is "more brown-ness" and I see what you mean. So, more brown-ness added:

Mr. The Relentless now has his backpack on.
The spine on said backpack and the skulls on his chest have been painted to be bleached bone as the usual "bone" colour would look too similar to the inside of the cloak.
The skull exhausts on his backpack have been painted a nice shiny silver/chrome that may make more sense when I do all the shiny gold.


Work has started on the sword and depending on how that turns out the ghosty bits will see paint soonish. I will have to do something with the gun before that though.

However, I am stuck for what to do with his horns.
I'm thinking at the moment that they can be either bone (like the spine, that's grey-scale) or silver (like the backpack skulls).
Thoughts, opinions, ideas welcome?

Personally I'd go with bone for the horns - silver I think would distract from the gold on the rest of the front? Otherwise looking good

Yeah, bone for the horns. Once you've done the 'ghosty bits' maybe a subtle wash over the horns and spine...depending on what colours happen with inky, pinky, blinky and clyde

Thanks Monkey. I'll have a look at them in a bit.

...and they're just on the sword.

Speaking of which, this is roughly what I was thinking of for the ghosty bits.

This was a black basecoat, covered with blue. Then blended/dry-brushed up to white and then washed over with a blue/green and a final highlight of white with a tiny bit of green in.

Thoughts?

Looks very good. Truly.

Maybe - and I'm not the one to comment on painting - re-darkening the deeper crevices again, especially those nearer the tip, to regain their depth a bit?

Good good. Glad you are liking it. going to be interesting doing this on the armour and gun.

Just based the metals on the sword and the tassel will be bright red. The pistol will be mainly grey metal but will get the ghosty bit on top to match the others and the coil may be orange-y and will match the various evil-eyes.

Just been watching a bit of Star Wars.
May the fourth be with you.

Looking good. As there seems to be a slight osl look to the ghosts will you be doing something with the plasma coil?

And is it just the light or have you made the reds on the cloak a bit more orange?

No, the red's are still red. Probably just the colour balance of the photos (it's tricky to get right and I wasn't looking at the red when I checked the photos).

Speaking of orange though, I'm thinking of doing the plasma coil and the evil-eyes in orange. Probably a red-based orange as I'm wary of adding too many colours on him.

I'm going to have to remember it and do a full ghost member of The Scientist's army (would also need some imaginative fluff too).

and the whole thing is falling in nicely. This is turning out to be a real cracker matey.
Thanks. It's nice when a model reaches this stage, the list of things to do is shorter than the list of things done, and you can see the finish line (should have him done this week; I have been busy with other things which has slowed progress, honest).
