Default Cool mini or not worthy?

This may be interesting, putting up a quickly drybrushed barely even painted crisis suit, with completely unpainted arm/wargear, and no basing whatsoever....


yet...


looking like this:





So, what do you think?? Should I post it?

Might as well. Even if they tear it to pieces, I want that tutorial!

I'd suggest finishing the model before jumping the gun. Might as well try and get the best reviews you can. Also, where is that shield from? Damned cool it is.

Yeah source lighting..heehee Over at LO someone actually said: "Your lighting effects are very well done...."

and I honestly think he meant that he thought the blue highlights and green plasma glow was painted on.... I cant wait to see is responce when I tell him those highlights are real light highlights ;D

And GAWD I HOPE there arent painters out there who can actually paint and blend that shield effect to make it appear to glow like that!!!! If thats the case, whew... I would be utterly blown away. Imagine all the time that would take... and how much easier and far quicker (about 30 min. worth of work) it would be to just ACTUALLY light it. :P

@Calaban
Well it can be painted, but it can't be made to glow, because paint doesn't radiate light in a simila way to a lightsource...

I think you should paint it up, and generall finish it, before posting it on CMON.
I can't see how anyone would seriously see that as a paintjob, I'm pretty sure the guy was joking.

Good luck with CMON stuff.

Cheers

Looks really nice - if possible, you should try to incorporate the batteries into a large base for the model, so they are hidden away.

Oh, they can make it glow, just not in the same way as that. You use Day Glo paints, they take in infared radiation, or UV.... I cant remember which one, and they give off visual light.
