Christmas projects - not a wiz
R2ED posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI tried using a new method in pushing as many purples as i could. This worked really well for the color scheme. I had some trouble with getting the color of the scroll down. Was really debating putting some writing on there, but decided to stop now while I felt like he was in a good spot. I've been pushing my luck lately on a few of my projects and end up totally screwing them up. I've been trying to find my point of no return and stopping before I cross it. Seems like this guy was good where he's at. Things I learned: 1. Tried black lining on the back of the cape and recesses of the robe with black acrylic ink - WIN! 2. Tried using a wash on the top of the hat and back of robe with Nuln Oil - Fail. Had to go over and redo. Finding I'm getting lack luster results with washes. I've started adding flow aid to them for better results, but I just can't seem to wash like I see other people doing. Weird? 3. Kept to a single color palette over the whole scheme - purple. Win. 4. Didn't get too carried away with flesh tones. Just did a barbarian AP skin tone and hit it with a thinned Agrax Earthshade - win. I'm happy with the results thus far, but I may go back later to further improve him. Not now though...
