    WIP High Elf Noble ~ FINISHED on page 2!

    Well, this here is my mini exchange model, which I've finally started getting somewhere on!

    Hooray!

    The photo was taken in a bit of a hurry, but has shown me a few areas to tidy up (ie: the model's left eye, the skin tone needs to be slightly colder to differentiate it from the hair etc etc).

    But anyway, the face, hair and coronet are all tentatively finished, barring the small changes above.



    Let me know what you guys reckon...

    -t.

    edit: finished on page 2!

    I'd consider changing the hair rather than the face to add contrast, the skin tone looks really nice.

    Looking good so far.

    Re: the sculpt...
    I've never really liked the High Elf Swords. They all seem like they are from a different range and from a slightly larger scale. Not the fine gentle exquisite works you might expect.

    I agree - compared to teh nice straight swords that the Vampires get High ELf swords (especially on the plastics) look a little clumsy and child-like..

    Umm, I think the deadline was the end of June, which means I am running about 2 months late.
    I am failure incarnate.

    I think I'll probably end up changing the hair colour, probably making it a little more contrasty, and possibly somewhere more along the lines of a silvery white (think along the lines of Sephiroth from FFVII), as on second looking, I'm really fond of the skin colour, it really worked out nicely.

    The skin tone was achieved thus:
    Prime White (whole mini)
    Wash Enchanted Blue (whole mini)
    Basecoat Bleached Bone
    Wash with something like 60/40 Dark Flesh/Hawk Turquoise
    ...Then layer upwards from Bleached Bone with a teeny-tiny touch of Hawk Turquoise, to about 59/40/1 White/Bleached Bone/Hawk Turquoise, with some minor feathering on larger areas.

    I've also noticed that the crown-thingy is quite a lot brighter IRL than in the photo, which is slightly annoying.
    Need better light and more time...

    Anyway, I've got a few things on tonight, but I'm hoping I'll be able to get started on the various silvers tonight.

    -t.

    Update time, but alas! no pictures...
    My cameras have been purloined for various reasons, and I'll probably only have them back for monday =(

    Anyway, didn't quite make the progress I was after due to various things popping up, but this morning I was able to get the hair almost finished.
    A few glazes (3, I belive) of fortress grey, then some extra shading with codex grey, then codex grey+black, and highlights of pure white, has given me a nice, silvery tone.

    I'll see how it looks tonight and possibly continue working on it, 'til I've got it to a stage where I'm completely happy.

    No work got done on any of the silvers, unfortunately...

    -t.
