So i'm at college now and i've been working on my Space Marine dread since i got here in september. I kind of went in painting him without a plan other than left side black, right side blue. He's pretty much all done being painted, however I can't think of anything to paint with the Blue or Black. I need some suggestions on a design or illustration I can paint on to make him look really good.
His left side is completely black, including his arm. His "fist" is painted like purple fire (supposed to be black fire concept). His right side is completely blue, including his lascannons. He has a white strip meant to look somewhat like lightning down the center to split the two colors. Parts of his weapons are painted red-shading-into-black. The pipe of the lasguns are that shading, his bolter under his left arm, and a melta gun i placed on him. Other metallic parts other than his armor are silver or brass, inked with brown ink, black ink, and blue ink to make him look weathered and scored. :ninja:
Id post pictures, but i dont have my camera at school with me. When my roommate gets back i'll see if he can take some for me with his digital.
Otherwise any designs that would work well on a black or blue background, preferable the blue one, would be greatly appreciated.
Ive thought of such designs as a black hole , supernova :w00t: , and some other ideas ive dismissed. Just with all the limited space on his body, it would be hard to draw something like that.
Thanks in advance. :yes:
Ok so i borrowed my roommates camera :ninja: , although it isnt great, but heres what ive painted. Thought it came out real nice. :w00t: Sorry for the blurry pictures.:wacko: I'll have better ones, including a closeup of the illustratoins on the lasgun by next week when i get home. :yes:
I found a picture on line of an oil painting someone did, and it inspired me to paint what i did. Although the painting isnt great, and lightning didnt come out as clear as i wanted it to, overall it looks really nice and adds a lot to the model. :yes: I have the purple flames (black fire) on the left side of his body (first and leg armor) but now the rest of that black area looks empty, anyone have any suggestiions?
thats good, pretty nice free hand-ing every thing seems to be in place, why dont you just continue the lightnig/fire designs on the rest of the model?
Otherwise very good
it would kinda make the model look plain on that side compared to the art i managed to pull off on the right side.
hes supposed to be some kind of elemental, if that gives someone any ideas?...
