I did some more work on his skin tone, I'm trying to get some nice blends instead of my usual base, wash, highlight done. After I did his face, I thought it looked a bit wrong so I added some more pinkish brown paint into the mix. I'm in the middle of doing it on his arms as well, then starting HL again. The previous layer for some reason looked a bit chalky as well on the model. 


I was trying to match a reference picture but not sure I'll manage, anyway, more WIP:

Got his clothes basecoated, and his bandolier. Did washes, just waiting for them to dry. I still need to do his eyes... just not sure how yet. They're pretty deepset and I'm not sure of a good nonhuman colour.

you could use a bright color such as yellow (think cat at night when someone shines a flashlight on them) or a very bright (florescent even) green for the eyes.  Human eyes are not usually the glowing kind.

Ooh yeah I like that idea, makes a lot of sense! I'll give it a go

 

Did a little more work on his clothes, trying to make pants look a little worn. I did some hatchmarks in a lighter blue, then glazed more blue on top to try to make it blend a bit more. Think I used too much glaze but it's a start so I'll keep working on it.

Thanks =D he's coming along, I think he's almost(?) done. Anyway I'm considering basing ideas atm. I'm not 100% sure what I want to do, because the only two things that come to mind are sand or a scifi ship type thing. Dunno, am playing with stuffs atm

When you look deeply into his bright new green eyes .. where do you see him ? Their is you base.

Finishing his base - he's still all shiny cuz of gloss varnish, will matte it down shortly. I changed out his base from round to a hex, cut the metal tab off the bottom and made it into "pegs" so to speak, so he'll be sturdy. Should be done today, tomorrow to make sure 100% dry and cured, then off he will go to his new home =D

I'm trying to show the interesting VR/Other dimension market place in the middle of the desert area that is in the Valerian movie with this art. "Art'" being a loosely applied term here. Not sure it works, we'll see. But anyway that's why the background looks weird atm.
