Color Ideas?

8 posts in this topic

I am working on this for reapercon and I am looking for some suggestions to make the symbols pop.

Here is a closer look at them.

Any suggestions for this or other things you don't like about the paint job would be greatly appreciated. The plan is to have to add a cape with some freehand incorporating the symbols and a skull to keep the theme going.

 

Thanks!

Max

Light green (Alien Goo perhaps?) or a bright blue would be my guess.

 

Nice work so far!

Since the Dead Lord is clad in Red and Golds, A Bright Silver might stand out.

This was my first thought. Go with a contrasting color, in this case blue or green. If you go with a bright color, add a bit of OSL, and they'll have an appearance to be glowing.

Nasty green glows seem to be the go-to for undead symbols (and goo, and other nastiness). My personal fave is that P3 Cryx green glow stuff, but Alien Goo is even brighter, so... that's what I'd do.

Or bright oranges and reds to stand out against the purple shadows.

A thing to consider, are the armor plates in pristine condition or are they old and corroded?

 

Some colors really contrast nicely against rust or verdigris (depends on the intended plate material).

I was envisioning it as a sort of magical/ unworldly type of armor.  Although some corrosion would be nice...  hummm
