Well, except for his head pillow thing and some gemstones, he’s done.  I’m not sure what to do for the head pillow thing.  I already have enough green, so I don’t think that’s a good option.  Black seems to work alright, but It obviously needs a bit of highlighting or something.

What color do you think the head pillow thingy should be?  Oh, what about the Immortal head he’s holding?  I’m thinking I may do it the same colors as the base – as if they’re made of the same red sandstone.  Thoughts?

  • I like the idea of red sandstone for those two, though the black ball thingy should stand out a bit more, maybe some OSL comming off of it?

  • Well, I'm thinking I'll hit the black balls with gloss varnish after sealing, and they'll like like shiny Onyx. Since these guys are so into "The Void", deep, black gemstones seemed to fit.

    I think I'm going to do the neck pillow the same red as his robe – bring more of that bright red to the front of the model. The Immortal head, however, will be the same scheme as the base.

    Yay, a plan!

  • Go Plan Go~! 🙂 Yep, great idea. I was thinking a deep cream/dark ivory color for the collar, but that didn't seem to fit exactly. The red will work much better, I think you're right.

  • Well, as much as I'd like to do that, I don't want it to be too close to his skin tone and be confusing, nor do I want to bring in a fourth color (red, bronze and green being the current three). So, red it is!

  • Oh, and at 3 pts, he's roughly a third of the month's quota, though half the month is gone. I'm falling behind!

  • Well, my goal for this month is fairly low. I finally finished assembling, cleaning, stripping (in the SoB's case), and priming – Ragman, Scavenger, 10 SoBs, full unit of Bloodgorgers plus Gerlak (on a custom base), Epic Deneghra, and a Carnivean (which I used your directions on extending the back leg so that he's taking a step up). I'm hoping to at least get the Scavenger done by the end of the month and maybe the Ragman.

  • Looks really good bro, I'm impressed by the red. Always doing a sharp job though. Are you planning on using a deeper shade of red for the collar? I think if it was the same red, there wouldn't be much contrast between it and the robe.
