I was gonna say white and gold but you've already decided, heh. The progress looks nice. Is the head shaded by yourself or is that just a shadow?

So those red bits are going to be the glowy bits? That could work. If the rest is going to be mostly grey, I will say to make sure you do a nice gradient / shading on it...or, do ghosted designs/runes...

Maybe you could do the more important, HQ characters with the white/gold scheme to make them stand out and really look important...

i am also dreading the shading process that guy is going to take.
I was thinking a grey gold. So that way they can still have a small amount of tron, and elegance.

Also the majority of votes are for tron! haha

Yeah, can imagine it being a little intimidating. Take it a section at a time maybe, depending on how you do your blending.

Cool. Look forward to seeing it.

My plan right now is to bring the stripes up to color, and then darken the armor/straighten lines that are slightly off.

voted for the tron scheme... while i like the red and white combo i still would have loved to see a more darker version... more towards black and red or possibly orange or a blue even for the lines... but since you already started with the red lines... more happy painting for you^^

Viktor, i am using the red to build up to an orange/white with a tinge of yellow. Its easier to get orange through a red base.
As for the armor it is going to be a dark grey, so the good news is you are getting exactly what you want.




also... that white is primer...

You invented a new word. And if you want to talk about commissions, i will happily do so. I could stand to have one.

Pastahe - noun - To grant Viktor Von Domm's whimsical requests. even makes sense in your quote.

But i can easily paint all the models that will be in the list. Who knows i may get tired of it and hit you up about it.

If you can work up the colors smoothly to an orange-yellow, I think that this will be beautiful!

So it's going to be gray with orange glow? That would be nice.

I am trying a new method of updates. More WIPS try to keep you short attention span types-- what was i saying?

Sadly this is my darkest grey! i could try to make it darker by using a mix of black with it. It is actually for i want suitable. If you think i should make it darker i will. The lower half of that grey is actually black washed, just a tinge darker and helps a lot, i will finish the upper torso and wash it so you get an idea.

Promising start. Nice blending. Will you bring all the orange bits up to as bright as the face?

I'd say the grey is dark enough as it allows you to add a little black (or wash with black as you said) for shadows and highlight with a lighter grey.

no need to make it darker...since i think you are aiming for this look:





i think the current grey will work due to the brightness you induce through the orange!... so commence!

I was planning on having the face exceptionally bright like it is to add a focal point to the model. Leaving the rest kinda darker, i can also bring the face down to match if it doesn't work out. Well thanks on the blending, it is my first go with it and i don't have a wet pallet. Grrr...
I am just wondering if an extreme high light would ruin the tron effect, we will see!

Ah, fair enough.

Yeah, lots of things like this don't show how they will end until the model is nearly done.

Instead of extreme edge highlights you could try blending the grey slightly lighter towards the edge so it's not as harsh a line. Or, just use a grey to highlight that's only slightly lighter than the base grey, if it doesn't show, go lighter until it's just visible.

Continued progress on the giant fether. Feel like he is starting to come together.

Sorry for the bad pictures, we will get good ones when he is finished.

Also, the grey is washed, that is the final color.
