I decided to have a go at lightsourcing on a marine I was painting up for a custom chapter.
Here is the result:
hrmmm pics kinda dark, it doesn't show most of the blending i tried on the armor...ah well i'll take a better pic during the day tomorrow when there's better lighting.
Main thing is, am I going about this the right way with the light dispursion? Is the light a bright enough color?
C&C would be most welcome

Well, I have to say that it looks really good to me. I can't do anything like that myself.
Most photo editing software will have a histogram function which lets you adjust the range of light used. By leaving out the high and low ends of the range which didn't get picked up by the camera, it can make the picture muh brighter.
Cool. But I think the light from the auspex blocks out to much of the nearby colours.
it looks realy good to me

Absolutely love the scheme. Brown (like orange) is a grossly under-utilized color for marine schemes. I realize that I'm a little biased as my first chapter was reddish brown and golden yellow but this figure looks very sharp. It's a nice looking scheme and very well painted. I think the yellow trim and weapon casing works well. I'd say go with it.
Any more info on this chapter? Name, symbol, traits, background, etc...
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.

Nice colours. When I read the description I thought brown space marines were the worst idea. I could never do anything as good as that
Can you hear the voices too?
what you might want to do is drybruch a light brown over the lighting area, i find when thats done it gives a cleaner and healthier glow to the auspex, also that bolter looks sick with that non metallic metal:yes: overall: good job for your first try

Awesome marine, I love the brown and yellow combo. The lighting looks very good, although some of the places you 'lightened' look as though they wouldn't be able to catch any direct light. One step to never forget when using lightsourcing effects, alays trace a straight line fromt he source to the to be lightened area. If you can't make the line, don't lighten the area.
Overall, great mini, awesome work.
