Aaaaand here's #2 of 4.
She was a bit of a challenge coming up with her base. I wanted it to look like the first scene that Cloud meets Aeris where she's in church ruins. I wanted to have color, but not too much. Feels like it works.
Got feedback? Lay it on!
I haven't posted a piece in the showoff area in a long while. I mostly put my work in that paint club group, but this one was special and i wanted to share.
I had this figure staring at me and didn't have a theme in my mind. Then it hit me that she for perfectly for this conflict in Ukraine. She's holding her sword up as if the last line of defense. I created the small base with the fallen shield representing the broken boundaries and fallen defenders. But atop her hill that represents her country, she calls for aid and stands strong. May they all stand strong.
Lady Vigilance and her call to arms.
I did this for my friend's xmas gift this year. He's a big 80's kid, too.
The challenge here was trying to make them all individual more than just their head bands. I wanted to differ their greens a little between them. I also wanted them to look sewer-ridden and dirty, but still hold contrast. Came out pretty nice.
*Donatello was easily my favorite that came out of this batch. His purple was a great mix and stood out.
*Leo had a fun blue that was brighter than expected and gave me the idea to put their respective colors in more areas on them.
*eyes were simple and effective.
*use of washes and lining came out good.
* muscles all have strong definition (no pun)
*bandages look grungy as intended, but did get a little too bright in the edges.
*absolute fail in trying to base with green on airbrush. I may need to resign myself to simply saying i suck with an airbrush.
*shell colors needed a little more, but i couldn't figure out what's going wrong.
*i wanted to push the greens. But needed more something to push the values. Yellow? White? What do you raise green with?
Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months.
Turns out squigs are not just funny looking, they are funny to paint. I loved these models and really found they took amazing to dry brushing. I was testing colors and layers.
* dry brush was excellent. Used some cheapo makeup brushes and they did great.
* i used a purple glaze over orange and then built it up with orange further. Looked good.
* blue came out great, but i don't know what layers to use on it to give contrast like the purple orange one.
*teeth are all solid and look good.
*skin folds are natural looking and added freckles on some are much better than expected.
* the yellow one was testing out transparent paints and it went on like a dream.
*not too many complaints really. These all came out more or less as expected.
* challenged by how low they are to the base and getting them with ground effects.
*never painted mushrooms and wasn't sure how to go about it.
