Getting back to painting, after a brief break to take care of some other things. This was my first attempt at a non-humanoid/skeleton, so I had trouble judging the proper size for the striations on the carapace (which is to say that they're generally too short and thick ), but it was fun to try doing a different material effect.
As usual, more pictures and thought process at my blog: link
Looking back at it now, I should've shaded more of the flat area of the red and done more to separate the body from the ground. The eyes are a bit sloppy, too, but they're so damn small that I'm amazed at how cleanly others have painted them. There's also an ugly gap between the Bones base and the actual base, though that's because I'd overestimated the strength of the bond (using just PVA and spackle) and broke it off, and then I just superglued it back in place as closely as I could without adding any more filler. On the plus side, I think the blood stains and the white "reflection" lines on the red areas both added nice touches without being overpowering or garish.
So I finished this guy up in between working on the couple of other WIPs I have going. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I didn't spend as much time on this one as I normally do for highlights and details.
I definitely stole the idea for the blue eyes off the painted picture on the reaper store. The base is a secret weapons lava base. Instead of lava I gave it some rusty pools of water using realistic water.
