Red Mantis

Very nice, limiting your pallate created a strong theme.

 

One note, the technique you describe is a glaze; it's used by artists for canvas paintings. It changes the hue (the color, red to orange in this case) without changing the value (brightness) much. This means the areas you glazed aren't much brighter than the areas you did not. If you want to really make the highlights pop, you can add a lighter red highlight and then the orange glaze, or highlight with orange and then glaze with red to bring the hue back to where you want it.

 

However, I like how it looks now. Very subtle gradiants. The model kinda reminds me of Deadpool... I think it's the eyes.

bunch of crazy buggers. One of my current PC's has an absolute loathing for them

 

Really quite like the painting on this guy.

Awesome! I have the concept art for this one and I am loving the work you did on it. I run Serpent's Skull and they also have Mantis, this makes me want to paint one as well. :)
