Hello AoD,

Your painting has improved, I can see it in your last couple pics! Well done! Your questions about the flamers is quit easy really, I included a pic if your interested. First paint the end with gold, then wash it was badab black. Then follow up about 3/4 of the way up with asumen blue and levithan purple wash. Finally top it off with devlan mud and or a lighter coat of badab black again and walaa.

Hope that helps and keep up the good work!

Regards,
DoE

Celestia's starting to look pretty good.

If I may though...

Well, it's just one man's opinion, but I cannot see the sun Princes as light-skinned. Luna? You'd better bet she is pale, but not Celestia. Consider giving her brown skin...

As for her cutie mark. Perhaps if you put a layer of greenstuff over her right spaulder to smooth it off that'd be a good place to paint her cutie mark on?

Finally - her eyes are... er, a little bit crazy-looking. I'm damned if I know how to fix that, but it is worth mentioning. (The model itself has closed eyes).


Oh, finally, finally, if you're wondering which model to use as Luna, how about this one?



She's got that suitably dark 'n' creepy vibe to her and the empty left hand is an ideal place to add a gun or some such.

I got mine from here.

On the first point thanks XD

As for skin tone, I would agree that maybe a tanned color might be appropriate but two things put me to where I am now. As a 'space marine' her skin would resist being tanned lol. Also Celestia is a white Alicorn lol so i debated on it and decided to leave her fair.

I agree on the eyes and i thought about just closing them when i noticed they were probably closed. But this way...she is staring into your soul and judging [email protected][email protected]

For Luna I have on order a Terminator Chaplain that I will convert with a few things into her. That model is a nice one and if i do a 'out of armor' version then ill consider it quite a bit lol.

I'm no expert on Astartes, but I had apprehended that, amongst their enhancements was skin which almost-instantly adapts to radiation of all kinds, including tanning to counter sunburn and skin cancer?

In any event, I wasn't suggesting a suntan, I was suggesting a naturally dark skin tone - but we each of us have to follow our own hearts and yours says white pony=caucasian human, and I can respect that.

I figured you'd like that. ;-)

honestly, coat colors aside, I always felt humanoid depictions of Luna should be pale and Tia should be tannned...I mean, Luna never comes out during the day and is a goddess of the pale silver moon, meanwhile Celestia controls the golden sun and is out in the day soaking up the rays

Plus it gives better contrast against their armor colors

True; but since the whole thing is a reference to the original 'toon characters, I suspect it would be more canonical to keep the skin colours matching with the original pony's hide...

You get the same effect from just having their armor the right color.
