I had a lot of fun painting up one of my Kraken planes from Reaper's CAV Kickstarter. Nothing fancy, just solid basecoats. I was having fun playing with colors while doing Google Hangouts with forum members. ^_^

 

(the purple is a much darker, richer color in person; I think my lighting washed it out and brightened it some)

Colors used:

Grey Liner

Twilight Purple

Solid Black

3:1 Tropical Aqua:Clear Green

 

I've never painted an inorganic mini before, there's so many straight lines and edges! I think it came out okay, though; I'm really liking these colors together! :D

 

Oh, and Aryanun pointed out that it could totally be a creepy mask too:

Now I can't unsee it. :lol:

 

I have a second one, and I'll paint it up either exactly the same, or using the same colors reversed (swapping purple for teal and vice-versa)

 

Huzzah!

A nice solid basic job.  I'd love to see that purple in person.

 

Here's a better picture of it:

This picture makes the teal look far less green than it is in person, but the purple is quite accurate. It's a lovely color, 29819 HD Twilight Purple. ::):

 

Huzzah!

Nice!  Is that what you were painting this afternoon?

 

Yep! Well, sort of; this is the one I painted yesterday; the one I was painting this afternoon will be color-reversed from this one. ^_^

 

Huzzah!
