Default My necron paint Theme

I made a NDestroyer in metallic purple and clean white colors. I wanted it to look more like an advanced alien technology made of unknown ceramic like materials (the white parts) and some nano infused metal (witch is the metallic purple. I think that idea of painting necrons into old rusty earth colors SUX, mainly coz I think that necrons made of materials that define time, corrosion, bacteria, magnetism, gravity, warp or any other natural phenomenonís, dats Y I made this to point it out!

thnx for reading tell me what you think, i mainly expect criticism :P

P>S> sorry for any grammar mistakes.

I honestly really like the look myself. Good work man. However, this is not quite the place for it. It belongs in the painting forum :P

I like the color scheme, it's very unique (in a good way.) The colors look really good together.

Your painting seems OK, although you got the white to be bold the paint seems quite thick.

Thnx allot now I can rely see the chunks of paint sticking out, from now on Iím going to water down my paint. I knew about the technique for some time but have never gone down to using it. Mainly coz thereís no one around to tell me if Iím mixing to much or not enough water in.
But thereís still one thing, how can I measure water that I put in, coz dropping water drops from the brush donít work for me need something more accurate!

why have one arm when you can have two (or does that just apply to heads
and didn't the necrons want to evolve into what they are? i think in evolution you would want to get more arms.
