You've taken your extremely neat style and added some incredible shading and highlights to it! Fantastico

Look great, is the brown skin the final touch?
cya later :w00t:
i *LOVE* the carapace, it looks fantastic, especially for a bleached bone base. A lot of depth.
I have to say though, the general level of detail on the carapace, then the perfectly uniform brown skin makes the model look a little unfinished. Also the skin looks a little glossy, but that could just be the photo.
I'm curious to see how the guns will turn out.
The carapace is amazing man, good job.
I do however think it lackin something. I suggest that you add a gloss to the brown.
Thanks for the comments! I agree, the flesh is taking away from the model. I think I will highlight orange or use a brown ink on the flesh, I just have to figure out which I like better. Thanks!
Looks like I am going against the grain here, I don't like it. For one it's too flat, there is no shading or highlighting that I can see. The brown should have been given either a dark wash to shade or started off with a darker basecoat and the highlights are non existent from these pictures. Mixing in either a lighter brown or bleached bone you would have gotten a much better look.
The carapace does not look all that good in my opinion. The brown does add some colour but it's too sudden and dark on such a light surface, it adds no depth. If you were wanting to shade with brown, I would have started with either a brown base and worked up leaving the shading in the recesses or a brown wash [or even a brown ink wash]. Because currently, it looks exactly as it is - cream with a bit of brown drybrushed over the edges and here and there. It's not lost beyond all hope but needs more work, or personally that's what I say.
Oh and in the third picture, there's a mouldline on the claw you missed.
So what don't you like about it?
God man, over board.
Um, not really. It's called being constructive and not just going "Nice". If people don't want an honest answer or constructive comments - which mine were, I left remarks on what could be improved - then they should not post pictures. It was not aimed at slagging off someone's work but trying to help them improve.
