This is the wonderful forgeworld Dread I got a few months back, he's finally 98% complete. Would love to hear some feedback and comments.
Nice work. Maybe push the blue highlights a bit more, that's just me being fussy. Why only 98% complete:?.
Phormio makes some really good points, and a lot of why it's only 98% complete is what i started to see once I took pictures.Well I'm going to be picky.
With the yellow/gold on the body, I noticed that It appeared a bit thick and in places the blue showed through underneath. I think the problem here is coverage and impatience. I think in order for that paint to cover, you applied it too thickly losing much of the smooth texture on the yellow/gold. To overcome this I would recommend using a white base coat on those parts and doing many thin coats of the yellow/gold colour to build it up. Once thier you could blend in some bleached bone and white to lighten the yellow colour to highlight the edges.
On the same part I also saw some overpaint (especially on the back and on the arms). I hate overpaint. It causes me the most grief and everyone else here too, I'm willing to bet. But you need to fix those bits up.
As a general comment more highlighting would really help this model along.
Hope this helps.
Okay that makes perfect sense actually, I wasn't sure if you were referring to overbrushing (as described in the GW books) one of the guys who "taught" me how to paint sometimes called it by other terms.Sorry if this explaination isn't very clear, it's just the best way I can put it ATM.
...Thanks for the compliment...I think... **I hate that you cant tell the difference between honest compliments and sarcasm** Hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll find the time to finish up the detail work on him and on the rest of my chaos army and get whole army composites up. I'm up to just under 1850 total.Now that's well done. ^^
It also makes me feel better about my own painting abilities cause that looks about how well I'd paint.
They are awaiting a drybrushing/highlighting of fortress or codex grey to highlight the edgeing. At the moment they are Adeptus battlegrayAlot of what i saw has been pointed out.. but one tini question.. and i know you said you almost done.. but what about metalic areas.. such as leg joints/ pistons.. gonna leave them black or paint them any colors.. or are they already painted and my computer just suks?... lol
