Nice job, the purple looks great as a spot colour and the flesh is suitably diseased looking.

If i had to suggest anything it would be some more differentiation between the flesh and the axe haft. At the moment they sort of blend together. The blood also doesn't look quite right. It looks painted on as opposed to gory splatter. Have you heard of a product called tamiya clear?

Still great work!

I agree with Rems, the haft blends into the flesh. I think it would really pop if it were at least a shade darker.

Yeah I am noticing that now, I thin Im just going to do some blending with the red and try a dark brown wash over the ax haft to darken it up a lil

It looks great, though I agree with the previous comments that have been made. Still, good job

Regards,
Jake.

For splatter use a toothbrush and a blood colour of your choice and flick it on using your finger (or thumb). You may want to cover the body (using tissue or something) to avoid it splattering completely everywhere.

Great job.

Ya know I forgot about that trick and I have no idea how I didn't even think about, becasue I use to use it all the time...

About the purple

I was worried about going that route, Only time I whip out pinks and purples is when Slaanesh and Tzeench is on the menu, but I figured I'de try something different.
