Default My First Try at a Demon Prince

This is my first try at a Chaos Demon Prince and my first try at actually making a model look really good. Feedback would be much appreciated before I go any further on the model.

NOTE: I have no artistic talent whatsoever, so try to explain techniques you think I should use as you would to a total moron, a drunk one.

Where I'm sitting that looks awesome, I've bought one of those and its on my shelf I'll probably glue it together prime it and just use it as a completely black model for awhile its awfully intimidating.

Everything looks great, I wish I could offer suggestions but I find myself wanting to ask you questions on how you did parts.

Why thank you Trent =)

I know it's coming out decent, but I've seen a lot of models that look decent and lack that certain something that makes them look awesome.

That certain something is what I'm looking for, I don't know what it is.

Well if that`s decent I hope I can attain a decency one day in the near future

I'm guessing the biggest thing is blending the colors so they grow into one another is the hardest thing for me, and it makes a huge difference, specially in chaos where the armor is part of the Marine, or at least is for alot of units.

yeah, thats looking really good so far. It looks like there's some stuff that needs painting on his stomach, but that may just be the lighting. Anyway, if I'm nervous about how it looks, I usually look at the box it comes in to see if I missed any spots. But, overall, this guy looks really good so far. ^_^



USMC, Oorah!

Endless practice and a second of inspiration usually .lol.

Looking good so far, like the fact you are merging the red into black.

Have you thought about giving him tatoos maybe?

Hey man that's some great painting although i need to suggest a couple things
The face and the red part on his mutated power pack look too plain, you could use a little shading and lighting techniques

Mate that looks great. The red blends into the black just fine, you've got nothing to worry about. Looking forward to seeing more.

Well, I have an arm on. Finally. Picked out the bone on the jump pack (pain in the arse), and did the stomach hoses/viscera. Also did the trophies on his chain and all the other hoses on the main body and arm. I tried to give him a few tattoos, but my freehand line work is FREAKIN' TERRIBLE.

Here how he's lookin nowadays.
