|Neil said he wanted more attention to the crystal and Sebastian. Hopefully these two meet his expectations. Based crystal Enchanted Blue.|
JJ painting, absolutely amazed how quickly this model came together. Could've completed him in a Sat. This is a Hobbit Commission for Neil who won Silver Gargoyle Products Free Model Giveaway. If I hadn't applied what I learned from Andrew and Nate at Renegade Open GT I'm almost certain it would've taken me a couple more parts to complete this model.
|Mixed Enchanted Blue and Ice Blue 1:1 for first highlight on crystal. Hit sides then top of the facets.|
|Added more Ice Blue to the previous mix 3:1 to Enchanted Blue for next highlight.|
|Added one more part of Ice Blue to previous mix now 4:1 for the edges of the crystal. While it looks ok, it is similar to the crystal on the GW model. Not painted the same way. Now to give it that extra umph that hopefully meets Neil's request.|
|Took advice from Nate and increased the contrast, thanks, Zab, and cranked up the crystal. Pure Army Painter Mat White on the edges of the facets.|
|Very similar to the previous pic of my wet pallet. Inside Vermin Brown I added Balor Brown for the first highlight.|
|Little more Balor Brown to key parts of the face, ears and certain parts of the hair.|
|Mordian7th's voice goes through my head.|
Thanks again, Andrew and Nate. Hope to chat with you both again about painting.
