    Thousand Sons Sorcerer

    Here's a sorcerer I did a few months ago, getting better at the camera, but it still likes to wash out details and highlight imperfections

    LOL, that is what they do the evil little contraptions.
    This is my favourite model all categories and I think you've made him justice, the only thing I'm not 100% in favour of is the blue head, I prefer them brighter so they stand out.

    He looks good. I think you could try some more highlights and definetely some more shading. Try a little dark blue for his blueish areas. Use a fine detail brush and slightly watered down paint. Also try a chestnut ink wash for the golden critter heads on his backpack.

    A few highlights applied to one or two areas will really make him come to life. I would use a mix of the clour already there and some white. Use a fine detail brush for it. Use the flat side of the brush and not the tip and you will find it easier to apply the paint to the edges.

    Very nice job, clean paint job. Though some of the gold does look a little bit flat, but maybe thats the camera. If not, an ink or black wash would really do the model justice. Thanks for sharing.

    Again, the gold is what stands out as "needing more work" for me, the rest of the model looks fine IMO (even, grudgingly, the sword, which is probably your RMM again ^_- ).
    Get some browns washed over that gold, I promise it'll look a million times better when you do.

    yep just put a thinned flesh wash over the gold areas and it looks much better......of course now I have to do this with ALL my models that have gold on them.

    I like, and agree with the rest - the wash on the gold will make it stand out much better. My only other comment really would be the blue looks as though it could do with a highlight, but it is difficult for me to tell. But nice work.

    tend to agree with Kuffey on the blue (not washing, what do dwarves know about washing?) if I look at the rear shot on the sentre of the backpack, with the bolts there too, thast would be where I would start
