So, just becouse i felt like it, i decided to start working on a crisis Suit, As you can see below.
The base color on there is GAME Color, Stonewall grey. With the white highlights. Now personally, im not too pleased with the highlighting, but thats the best i can do with my skills as they are right now. Does anyone have any advice, or suggestions on how to improve the highlighting? Or do you think i should use a different color to highlight with then the white?
Oh.. but i dont look so good with all those.. tentaclly things..
It's very flat. A wash would do wonders. Generally I do not highlight with white or do shades in black. It's just a darker or lighter tone of whatever color I'm using.
Try to break up the color scheme a bit too. It does sort of look like plastic with a white highlight. Perhaps the chest plate could be a lighter shade of Grey that the main body? Do the same on the legs with the center column of plates being lighter the the columns either side, ties it all together then.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Throw in a lighter coloured plate or two at random, like on the legs, just to break up the monotony.
Marines - All built, 4/5 painted. Tau - 3/4 built, 0 painted. 'crons - 1/2 built, 1/2 painted.
I suck at staying on task.
It looks like Megatron.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I'd use a thinned down paint and a lot smaller bursh. I'd probably use a very light grey rather than pure white too. I'd only ever use pure white very sparingly.
I agree, some other colours and shades would help too.
Yup, washes will work wonders. As for other colored plates, either try darker/light grey ones, or you could establish a "Sept Marking" color, or trim. For example, the normal tau you see in the codex and such has a white marking, while the more urban sept has an orange marking. You could try to either paint panels that color or just symbols and the like.
