Yay for purple shadows! It looks good! My suggestion would be to continue further - get a nice dark, nearly black purple (Nightshade Purple is my favorite) to line the under-edge where the hood meets the cloak, and to use that purple for deepest creases in the cloak. You can mix it with the green to create blend colors - it will look a bit weird, but the desaturated green-purple-brown will be pretty neato. On the peaks you can mix the green with some linen white (or white, or whatever almost-white is closest to your hand, lol). Brightening the tops will make the shadows more prominent too. 

 

I like your overall color scheme and the golden trim on the cloak. The colors place nicely together ::D: I'm also just plain a fan of purple and green. I have several projects with purple and green as the main colors because they're just so good!

Nightmare Black is the blue-black. Nightshade purple is a very very dark purple, near black. The purple is pretty desaturated, as opposed to the vivid blue in Nightmare Black.

It is Nightmare Black. Keep forgetting to expand my purple collection :unsure:

Honestly, Nightmare Black belongs in the Blue section, and Nightshade Purple belongs in the Black section, lol. Usually I don't break color triads for dark shades, but Nightshade Purple is sorted into Black in my bins. It is about as purple as Walnut Brown is brown. They mix as purple and brown, and thin purple and brown respectively, but left on their own are black. For reference on what Nightshade Purple can do with green (and the project that started my nightshade purple-mixing obsession thanks to the Colorado folks) see the hidden. 

 



The greens are the Olive Green triad, mixed with I believe Linen White to the highlight color at the peaks, and with Nightshade Purple to the shadow color for the deepest shadows. It doesn't take much at all due to being so much darker than the olive triad. Just a wee bit popped in there. Alternatively, thinned a ton to just a tint.

      Picked up this fellow as part of the recent Realm of the Dragon Kickstarter project.  He is on a 40mm base,  barely, and is a pretty good size. Did a simple tabletop paint job, a couple of layers of color and washes.  Very happy with him given how easy he was to paint.

      Wow, it's been...way too long since I last posted a project here! 
       
      So, this is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head since Argent was announced, and I've finally gotten around to putting it into action. This is just for fun, and unless it turns out unexpectedly amazing, I don't plan to enter him at ReaperCon, which makes him just right for easing me back into regular painting!
       
      My original idea was this: I discovered a paint pen that holds the EPITOME OF SHINY CHROME DELICIOUSNESS (search for Molotow Liquid Chrome Marker if you too want to revel in the glorious shiny) (also a shoutout to @LordDave for introducing me to this loveliness!). I already HAVE a shiny metallic dragon in my Ma'al drakar, and I couldn't have two all-metallic gigantic dragons in one household. It would just lead to bickering and drama about who's the favorite and oh-she-smudged-my-scales oh-no-I-didn't-he-started-it and honestly who even needs that? SO I wanted to experiment with painting Argent up using regular paints, then using the paint pen just on select scales and edges as a highlight.
       
      In my head it looks FREAKING AWESOME.  Buuuut since there's a lot of unknowns about this pen and how well reality will conform to my vision...
       

       

       
      First up, I tried my original plan of regular paint with chrome on the edges of stuff. I slopped these paints:

       
      onto part of a spare Bones Battleguard Golem, since these are some of the colors I'm planning to use on Argent (haven't fully settled on my color scheme for him, but that'll come later). I forgot to take pictures of that part, so you'll just have to use your imagination!
       
      Next, I used the chrome pen to try a few things; outlining armor segments, dot highlights, thicker vs. thinner lines, etc. And...none of them actually looked all that good. The chrome is just so very distractingly shiny compared to the matte paint that it just looks...bad.  But that's okay! This is what doing science is all about: trying lots of things and seeing what works! (Also known as "throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks" but I thought that might get kind of messy in this context)
       
      So, next I tried chroming an entire shoulder section and glazing some of the Clear Phthalo Blue over the top.
       
      (sorry for the blurry pictures, I may have been quivering from excitement )
      (also ignore the random bits of gold, those are from a previous unrelated experiment)

       

       
      This looked...much more promising! Huzzah!
       
      Which brings me both to the next phase of testing, and my next post because this one has gotten long enough!
       
      Huzzah!

      I recently finished Anirion! It was time to add layering to my toolbox of techniques and he seems to be the go-to model for learning.
       
      Since by I now have (just) over 10 minis under my belt, I'm obviously an expert  so I felt confident enough to go with my own colors rather than the ones in the instructions (from Layer-Up kit). Still, even with my "vast experience", I've only painted beasts and monsters so far -- no fancy clothing on any of them -- so I was a bit nervous about messing up my first hero, but you gotta start somewhere. 
       
      I think he turned out great, but it went nothing like the videos one might find... And by that I mean it took me several painting sessions over a few weeks to finish him.

      I fell back to lurking of the forums again.  So starting this year I decided to get back to painting and posting.  Most of what I've done lately has been with gaming in mind.  I wanted to try out Frostgrave Perilous Dark Solo campaign, so I decided to dual task my painting.  I also wanted to play with a full group of painted figures for Zombicide Black Plague.  Since I have already finished up all the zombies and Necromancer for the core game.  Baldric looked like and excellent candidate for my Wizard.  (well him or my 2 Necro's I've already finished, Shh....).  I decided to try to keep as close to the box art as I could.  
       
      Here is my Baldric.

      Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
