That is quite a good SoB, I especially like the armor. Keep up the good work.

Nice, very very nice. I'd sell my family to be able to paint like that.
You did a great job on the lens areas. Overall the figure is nice and clean.
Here are my thoughts and suggestions on various areas of your figure.
I like your idea behind the gold scroll work on the armor. Unfortunately the pattern looks chaotic and random making for an overal feeling of busy. This is especially so on the upper leg. My suggestion would be to first draw out a simple pattern on paper to see how the overall look will be. Also it would benefit from thinner lines - I know it would be hard to do but thinner lines will also give the appearance of there being more room. One way to accomplish this would be to possibly go back over the lines with the black until you get a desired thickness.
It could be the pictures but the reds look muted. Nothing wrong with that but the larger pictures look like you took a slightly lighter red and edged the basecoat color. I am not getting a strong sense of color transition. Maybe if you want to keep the muted color you could start with a brown and work your way up to a mid tone red.
The same goes for the black areas. It comes off very flat. Again this could be the photo. Black is definitely one of the hardest colors to work with. I personally find painting in shades of gray and then washing the black in with an ink wash makes for a rather smooth yet still basically black look. I don't know what look you are going for but another thing that I found works well with the sisters is to go straight black and then gloss the black areas with a gloss varnish (after you have dullcoted the rest of the figure). This gives an interesting rubber/pvc look that is fitting for the background of the SOB. The freehand on the back of the cloak looks very nice. It is much simpler than the gold pattern as is much more effective. Good job!
The base looks rather blank. You might want to mix up the rubble theme by mixing in some tans, browns, and maybe dabs of rust or whatnot. As it looks now it appears to be basically one color of grey. I would also change the color of the skull as it blends in with the base color too much.
I have seen some of your other sisters on your website and this one definitely stands out. You should definitly be proud of her.

I see your point about the "busy" look of the freehand on right leg. I was sort of washed out of ideas when I went to paint it.
The reds look more vivid and contrasting IRL, don't know how they came out this flat in the pictures. For example the "bulbs" on the sides of the backpack - they were going from Red Gore to Blood Red and finally Blood Red mixed with some yellow.
Same goes for the blacks - I guess I really messed it all up when re-adjusting the picture balance.
I agree with you on the gloss - in fact, my TT sisters are getting black+gloss armor.
Thanks for your C&C.
Wow that SoB looks REALLY good.I love the golden line design.I dont think the black looks that flat and the red lookes ok to me.Great job!
I like it! Are you going to paint all of youre sisters like that? :p
Question: How did you paint the gold lines on the armour so neat and tidy?
Lol i doubt he would.It would take him ages!It took him 40 hours to paint that one model so to get a full squad done it would take somewhere about 400 hours!But the army would look absolutely awesome.
Definitely not. HQ & Elites only - otherwise it would be too much work.I like it! Are you going to paint all of youre sisters like that?Fine brush, about 000. Can't be certain cause it had some other sort of numeration - labeled 0/5, but it's definitely finer then 00's I'm using. Then it was also a lot of retouches.Question: How did you paint the gold lines on the armour so neat and tidy?
