One of my first completed models. I painted this for a local guy.
Please let me know what you think.
The model is painted in shadow grey. It came out looking blue (to me).
The Relictor sign on the right shoulder was done by hand.

I like some of the extra details you put into the figure - such as hanging the helmet from the back and the book. I can't help but ask - "what happened to the left arm?" it looks like the plastic melted or something.
I would think about basing the figure or at the very least painting it black to hide the paint overspill. It is a strong table top quality figure and kudos for you in your attemps at shading and highlighting. Looks pretty good. There might be a few areas where it needs to be cleaned up a bit or the transitions a bit smoother but you have added definition to the figure. The freehand looks very nice.
Another thing you can do is to spray the figure with dullcote or other flat varnish. This will kill the shine from the inks and give the model a more uniform look. Right now the ink is shining in the flash making those areas stand out more than the rest of the paintjob.

Thanks for the reply.
The guy I paintedit for wants to base it.
As far as the left arm goes, that is the one he gave me.
Yeah I have to put some matte varnish on it.
