This one is a real devil to paint.
I got the body down and feel the colors there all make sense for a fire demon. But the wings...I can't figure out what to do with them. I was thinking to make them the feature and brighten them up, but the more I look at it the more I think the face and body are the focus. Needing some help here.
* Another round of dry brushing success! Did a scarlet red, to flat red, to clear orange dry brush triad.
* Used clear orange filter to bring up the areas of highlight and the subtle change looks really good and helps increase contrast.
* Horns seem to work pretty good with a oragnge/buff/white mix transitioning up.
* Dry brushing the gold kept it a cooler color rather than a overwhelming "bam" gold look. I used a yellow+gold mix to highlight the edge of the sword, but in looking at the photo I may need to increase this.
* Vein on the right bicep has a purple hue I added. I thought it was cool.
* I got pretty far along and then realized I have no idea how I want to do the wings. I need help! I need direction on the bone sections versus the wing membrane.
* The left calf got a bit too healthy of a helping of orange filter.
* The horns on his head don't seem to fit as well, but it's growing on me slowly.
* Tried putting yellow eyes. Didn't like it. Then tried doing yellow with purple dots. Didn't like it. Then tried yellow with white slits. Meh.
* Used a filter around the eyes with yellow to give a glowing effect, but it was way too overpowering and ended up making him a devil raccoon. Not the intended effect. Died it back down with red, but still stands out a little weird.
I've got 2 more in this series and want to give them some consistency. I was thinking the female devil I would do a purple/red mix. As always, open to some ideas.
If you're going to give feedback, I'd love some ideas on a diorama I could do with the three completed devils.
I have been slightly less of a workaholic in May than in April, so I have been able to do some quartely challenges as well as the monthlies. I am probably not going to be able to paint anything else this month, so here goes.
These were all painted for the Reaper challenge league May, and again, squeezed in between work. So, low effort speed painting is the key. which also shows that is it possible to get quite decent results in a short time as long as you accept there will be some rough bits.
there are some pictures below
