Nice! I also bought these during the sale, full set in resin master...soo nice. Looking forward to stealing your ideas watching your progress!

Well if it's any help, the colours for the shirt and pants are Camo Green and Dark Flesh, both OOP Citadel colours but should still be available from Coat D'Arms.

Looking forward seeing this progress.

I have had them in metal for a while.  I bought them before I really understood the difference in detail between the resins and metals.

These are just the metals. I've heard nothing but good things about the resin masters, but I don't think I'm a good enough painter that it's going to make much of a difference to me.

I've been trying to shade and highlight his shirt today and I'm just getting frustrated with it not coming out right, and I'm not sure if it's my painting or the colours I'm using or (most likely) both. I may or may not take a photo later when I'm less inclined to just dunk the whole mini into simple green.

Hmm, looking at it now.  I think I would have gone with shadowing the shirt with the pant's color.  I've had luck in the past using red to shadow greens like that when I messed around with complimentary color shading.  I feel your pain on the color not coming out right, I had the same with my current project's hair.

I'm actually using russet brown to shade the shirt, and I'm quite happy with how that turned out (note that there's no shading or highlighting in the photo above). It's more the highlighting that's bugging me, and it might be me over-highlighting and not putting highlights in the right places, but I'm still not 100% sure on the colour I'm using either.

Alright, so here's where I'm at.

I think it's the front of the shirt more than anything else which looks weird to me and I think it's just the highlight placement along with a bit of over-highlighting, which I tend to do when I'm not sure about where I'm supposed to put them. The back doesn't actually look all that bad at all, apart from needing a bit of touching up and some final highlights, maybe a bit of a green glaze. Looking at the pics of the front and back, I think the front could do with some deeper shadows as well.

 

The base is coming along nicely, though!

I'll give it a quick drybrush of white and maybe another brown wash/glaze, then it should be pretty much done. You can see where the slot and base rail are visible next to his right foot, but I'll cover that up with a tuft. It's kind of visible between his feet as well, but it's much less noticeable and I'm happier leaving it as is.

I love it when a paint job comes together.  :blush:

I reapplied the mid tone of OOP Citadel Camo Green to the front and back of the shirt, toning down some of the highlights that had gotten away from me and pushing back some of the excessive shadows around the back. Added some brighter highlights (sparingly <_<  ), lined the areas between the shirt and uh... harness (?) with RMS Russet Brown and gave the whole shirt a glaze of RMS Clear Green. Pretty happy with the result now.

Also, the base is pretty much done now. Just going to add that tuft once I'm done with the lower half so that it doesn't get in the way. Not really sure why the base ended up getting done so quickly, probably because I more or less knew what I was going to do with it.

So, do you all think that the shirt is an improvement, a disprovement or much the same as it was before? Anything I should do differently?

Took a break from Shaggy today and started work on "Felicity", aka Daphne.

Just blocking out colour at this point, but my initial thoughts:

Not sure if the green is too bright. It's a bit bright for classic Daphne, but later iterations have her with a brighter green scarf closer to this colour. I do however like the way the green and orange contrast with each other and frame her face.

The two shades of purple that I've used on the dress are obviously more similar than I had thought when looking at the bottles. I think if I highlight up the main colour in the right way it will look better, and there'll probably be a glaze or two of Clear Purple along the way (have I mentioned how much I love Clear Brights? ::D:)

Love, love, love the hair right now. Almost scared to do anything to it because it's just the perfect colour for her. It's Macharius Solar Orange for those of you playing along at home, one GW's OOP foundation paints. I've used it to good effect with my Celts:

... but that was just a quick chestnut ink wash over top on much curlier hair; I've never used it for such straight hair as hers before. We'll see how it goes.
