Default Vostroyan Officers (WIP, tell me what they need to look better!)

My two new Vostroyan officers. Spent about 3+ hours so far. I forget when I started painting (like 10:05) I stopped at 1:05... AM... I had a friend check em out. He said they look decent, but I need to drybrush the fur...





1. They look nice so far?

2. Yes, I SHALL find a way to paint the organic eyes...

I vow to not screw up on these little guys, like I did with the thickness of my Tau... I want these guys lookin' pretty... and shiny... well... Not shiny since Vostroya's a factory-covered planet but... Ya get it...

Really? Thanks. What would you say that I'd need to do to make them look better?

1. I've already applyed some Megenta ink over the blood red covering the big russian hats and other furry equipment. And how shall I go about shading the face?

Probably just bronzed flesh highlighted on top, then pick out with elf flesh?

For the eyes you can use a toothpick

Not bad, but as Nightmare said you could use some sharper highlights. It would be great if you could post some more recent pictures after your update!
