This one is a real devil to paint. I got the body down and feel the colors there all make sense for a fire demon. But the wings...I can't figure out what to do with them. I was thinking to make them the feature and brighten them up, but the more I look at it the more I think the face and body are the focus. Needing some help here. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Another round of dry brushing success! Did a scarlet red, to flat red, to clear orange dry brush triad. * Used clear orange filter to bring up the areas of highlight and the subtle change looks really good and helps increase contrast. * Horns seem to work pretty good with a oragnge/buff/white mix transitioning up. * Dry brushing the gold kept it a cooler color rather than a overwhelming "bam" gold look. I used a yellow+gold mix to highlight the edge of the sword, but in looking at the photo I may need to increase this. * Vein on the right bicep has a purple hue I added. I thought it was cool. Misses: * I got pretty far along and then realized I have no idea how I want to do the wings. I need help! I need direction on the bone sections versus the wing membrane. * The left calf got a bit too healthy of a helping of orange filter. * The horns on his head don't seem to fit as well, but it's growing on me slowly. * Tried putting yellow eyes. Didn't like it. Then tried doing yellow with purple dots. Didn't like it. Then tried yellow with white slits. Meh. * Used a filter around the eyes with yellow to give a glowing effect, but it was way too overpowering and ended up making him a devil raccoon. Not the intended effect. Died it back down with red, but still stands out a little weird. I've got 2 more in this series and want to give them some consistency. I was thinking the female devil I would do a purple/red mix. As always, open to some ideas. If you're going to give feedback, I'd love some ideas on a diorama I could do with the three completed devils.
