Default My Commander - Commander Sunfury

The name Commander Sunfury has been fluttered about this forum recently (quite a noob actually). Don't fret, im not stealing the name Commander Sunfury, for i am commander sunfury. I had to start a new profile because i embaassed myself so much for being such a noob. I'm hoping for a fresh start now. I apologise for any time i wasted or people i annoyed as Commander Sunfury :-[

So, below is a picture of my Commander Sunfury. Any opinions, comments and/or criticism would be very helpful. I have just started modelling and painting, so any tips would be very helpful for my future models.

Thanks

For the Greater Good!

Looks a little flat and too faded out in color. It looks a little flat. I think the lenses on the head should stand out a little more. Do not worry you are just starting out.

not bad actually. Although he has WAY too many weapons to be legal. The pose makes me think of an armor-plated philosopher rambling on about the moral sense of war. :P

Thanks for the input

A) what do you mean by the lens? Do you mean his "eyepieces". If so, how can I make them stand out. At the moment they're just dabs of blood red.

B) how do I make it look less "flat"

C) my camera's pretty dodge

Personally I think the pic is rather small, it's hard to see any detail from this distance, but if you want it to look less flat then shading and highlighting are the way to go. The new Citadel washes are perfect for shading, you'll have to go back and touch up the armor plates again, but the wash will stay in the recesses and make them darker. For highlighting you just mix up your base color with Bleached Bone or white and paint just on the edges where light would hit the model. Use a lamp pointing in the direction you want the light source to come from.

As for lenses or other painting tips I found this to be pretty helpful: http://www.advancedtautactica.com/vi...hp?f=37&t=6790

Sunfry - I don't believe I have ever seen a quadruple post before...

The edit button exists for a reason. If you're having problems with your post us that rather than making another post entirely.
