They are looking great . I can not wait to see more of your malal.
I would say maybe give the sand a wash of black ink.

Very interesting, thanks for the comments. I actually posted this elsewhere and received similar feedback - telling me to paint the sand, and I wasn't quite sure how I was going to go about it, so that's quite helpful. I will play around with black washing it. Thanks!
Nice - my only comment would be the white cloaks could do with a little more shading as they currently look "flat".
Ha! That is the exact same other comment that I got on the other board. It's good to get the same feedback from multiple sources, which really confirms what you need to work on, so that you don't go spending a bunch of time fixing something that's not broke.
Painting white has presented a huge challenge for me, but I am definitely going to try to improve my technique, especially on the cloaks.
Thanks for the constructive criticism!
Loving the look of these mighty fellas but would have to agree with the two previous comments. The sand could definitely do with an ink wash, specifically black or brown, since right now your bases are looking far too clean to be from the chaos wastelands, in my opinion.
Also aforementioned, the white cloaks could do with another layer, but I admire your bravery and particularly your success in going for a white colour scheme. It looks really clean and is very impressive. Kudos!
I start by painting all my white areas Codex Grey, highlighting up through Space Wolf Grey through to white. I've experimented starting from other base/shade colours and highlighting up but with the exception of perhpas blues, it universally looks, well, "dirty". Keep it up.
Have you posted pictures? I'm not quite sure what you're going for when you say "dirty", but if you mean actually dirty as in aged, worn, dusty, etc., well, that's kind of what I want I tried bringing it up from grays first, and it did actually look too clean, cold, and mechanical for me. It also blended with the black too much since I was using grays as the highlight for that.
I absolutely love what you did to the face. Really neat, original and fitting.
As for the horse/zebra. Again, cool idea. I'd try and clean up the lines a bit, there seem to be too many and they're too thin. Also, adding some shading to the zebra would make it look more dynamic.
That aside, well done. Can't wait to see more of your Malal loving buggers!
