Hey there, and welcome to Tauonline!
Great job so far, I love the face. What color did you use for the lips? They're perfect - not too bright, not too pink....great job.
Since it's still a work in progress, there's not much I can say other than the highlights need a little more work. Good job!

looks like that's coming along quite nicely, although i'm wondering if the armour is finished...i assume there's more layers yet to come?, cos it doesn't quite look like it has enough depth yet

I know this is totally not your fault, but she looks like the Marquis Evermonde from the Tale of Two Cities movie we are watching in English.

But the painting looks good so far!

Hi again


The photo is not a good one and the hightlights are washed out and I've had to lighten the pic using photoshop which makes areas look like the paints been applied with my fingers. my paints shouldn't be too thick as I dilute and use a wet palette. I'll try and get a better picture up soon ...... as assuming I don't need a new camara (been struggling with it a bit on normal pictures).

I do the lips as part of the face. I lay down my base colour, wash and highlight by adding increasing amounts of white to the base colour. Once the last layer has gone down I mix a bit of blood red to it for painting the lips to finish I add a bit more white to the lip mix and do one tiny highlight to the lips......... need a bit more practise (not painted for a year) but I've had good results in the past

Looks great my only critisism is that the feet look somewhat alkward just stick some green stuff under them so that there isn't that gap that makes her look off balance.
all and all tho thumbs up and welcome to the site.

Nice stuff! I particularly like the colour scheme. Of course I would because my tau are blue and grey, but the point is that those two colours go VERY well together

I've had another go at the photo



which is hopefully a bit better ...........

in reply about the feet ....I'm going to be adding some snow to the bases so this will hide the gap or failing that I'll be green stuffing it
