Great use of the limited pallete - purple and brown work well together. Love how the staff turned out as well as his hood and face.

Thank you all for your comments.

 

This was the first time I have really worked with Zinc White and I think I'm in love. It's a much lower tinting-strength white than Titanium White, which sounds bad, but turns out to be really useful. Mixing subtle gradients is easy and I didn't see any of the graininess than often happens with Titanium White.

 

The exercise was really interesting. As often happens, the restriction of only using two hues meant that I had to really exercise my creativity. The range of browns was interesting and I think effective. The purple was so strongly tinting that I found it hard to use it to get color shifts without overwhelming whatever I mixed it with.

 

The NMM in most cases was really weak, partly because I need much more work on NMM and partly because I'd like to do a bit more color shifting in the shadows and highlights, but the pauldrons were the best of that. And I know quite a lot more about how all of the paints I used here work now than when I started.

      Hello again forum family, I keep my purple period rolling on :D
      This time wanna share with you my version of Eilluvasheth. Beingi n my purple phase the dominant color is purple, and what's better than a gold armor to complement it?
      So I've tried to paint it in NMM to challenge me as NMM is out of my comfort zone. Still I'm trying to figure out where to place the shines and to maximize the contrast, but in the end I'm pretty happy of her, also considering that this lady is full of tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny details 
      Also i'm trying to pump the shadows instead of the hi-lights to maximize the purple contrast, just to avoid it to look pink.

      Hope you'll like her :)

      Now, nipples are covered in armor, but to avoid mods to delete the pics, I'll link the front one.

      As always every c&c is more than welcome.
      Thank you for watching

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      painted up 77040 Satheras, male warlock as a Drow and used it as an experiment to test out Coal Back and Styx purple. really happy with the results though the purple ended up more like dragon red at the end. Also was the first time with the Dark elf skin triad, really liked it. also on the scroll I looked up an eldritch font and wrote out Cthulhu fhtagn

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)
