He's here to sweep my ranger off her dainty feet? ::D:

I'm not gonna say she wasn't the inspiration... :wub: That Cloak...

 

Clearly I need to do more transition layers from the green to the blue.

The aptly named Peacock Green would be a good transition color from blue to green in your shadows. It is the dark one in the triad with Viper Green, with Brilliant Green in between. It is also much bluer of a green than the other two.

I think I'm gonna do a little more work on his skin and hair, and tidy up the base. Maybe highlight the blade with honed steel... But otherwise I'm pretty happy with him.

 

Suggestions welcome, on any part of him!

He's looking good! A little bit of something like Pure Silver at the top of his chestplate, top of his armored arms, and high edge of his sword will make the armor more shiny. Right now his cloak is vibrant, but his armor seems tarnished. His attitude looks like he wouldn't allow his armor to tarnish, therefore shiny is good.

      Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out:
       
      Front
      Back
       
      Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad).
       
      Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift.
       
      I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks.
       
      All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.

      So I started painting this guy... I don't even remember how long ago. Pulled him out tonight and decided to wash him with a couple other bones I was prepping... He felt a little tacky... And now feels worse. And the tooth brush feels all gummy.
       
      He's from Bones 1, and probably painted with older GW paints, not not 100% sure.
       
      Fairly sure I'm just going to drop him in some simple green and start over... Though I'm wondering if there has been some weird chemical change and if I'd just be better off getting a new copy of him?
       
      Anyone else run into something like this? I know some paint dries tacky on bones, but can that be cleaned off and repainted?

         Yes, I know Captain Stern...

      P.s. He should be torn into itsy bitsy pieces and buried alive!

      Howdy,
       
          It's not my place to question what bear does or does not do in the woods...
       

       
      Kev!
      P.s. But it DOES make a sound, though...
