Overall, I think it came out looking okay. Thoughts and criticism welcomed.

I think it looks better than just OK.  I don't really have any criticisms but a suggestion would be to do something with the eyes. Maybe a pure White with no pupils, or a really Bright Yellow. Also same with the mouth, some ghostly glow, etc. to show energy emanating from within, would make the overall effect more dynamic IMHO

 

To Clarify, the entire model is just the green color shift or you blended that with other colors.

Good idea (especially the eyes). I may give that a go.

 

As for the process, the base coat was 100% color shift green. I then did a darker green wash to bring out the details and highlighted with the same color shift green. Afterward, I went ahead and added a clear coat (for protection). Unfortunately, it seems like the clear coat kind of dulled the color shift effect somewhat. So, I hit the highlights again in order to let the color shift effect do it's thing at maximum potency.

 

The paints are very fun and I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to experiment with some new stuff. From the ones I've used, the green seems to cover the best.

 

Also, thanks for the feedback, everyone.

Excellent color choices! The dark makes it very sinister; I agree about the eyes, definitely a spectral glow from them would make this pop even more. I did one of these a while back in blues and had so much fun painting it I bought a second one to try out in greens, although I went with more of a glowing ghost effect.
