My friends and I have been having arguements about which method I have of painting Tau looks best, light (with black lining) or dark (with drybrushing and ink)? So, votes please! Left or Right?
And from the side!
I love my camera. Bearing in mind the model on the right takes a third of the time the one on the left does. Opinions please!

Definately the one on the lft, the lighter one. But i guess that depends on whether u want to get the army done quickly, if you have the time definately the lighter one.
the lighter one looks better up close but I think that the darker one would look better on the field in units.

I like the darker one. This Baby-blue / Tau flesh colour of the left one seems a bit, don't know, I just don't really like it. But the feet of the left one are better, though a colour using bleached bone or something like that would look even better.
PS: You should try to do the details of the right as careful as the ones of the left.

I like the one on the right, for two reasons.
1) I'm not a huge fan of the 'tau-flesh' blue suit on the left. I think the dark scheme works better.
2) Your detailwork on the left figure is too blobby. While drybrushing (like on the right figure) is regarded as quick-and-dirty, I think the effect is better than uneven 'blacklines' like between the armour plates on the left figure.

I like the dark one on the right.
I think it has more depth to it.
I would recommend thinning your paints a bit (or a bit more if you already do), you'll get better results for either light or dark and it'll save you paint. And if the dark one is quicker, that is always a bonus! :yes:

hows about you mix the dark and the light blue together for the base, then highlight with the light and use the dark blue in the cracks...
best of both worlds...
i reckon the darker on will look better in units on the table top.....but there only one way to find out
