I'm not sure it looks thick, I think it lacks some depth to it, personally I like to leave a little grey in the cracks on the white, just to show a little depth on the white!

I think I might have figured out what it is that's sitting a slight bit odd about the model. It is the groin plate, the white skull in particular. All of the other white/bone areas on the mini have a small amount of blacklining around them to add a degree of depth. The pics don't show that is the case for that area. It's funny how something so small has an impact on the overall work.

That withstanding it's another steller addition to your already magnificent work.

I really appreciate all the comments you have given me and I will work a bit more on the Terminator to try and fix it with your help.

Thanks!

I'd hardly call what I did " advice " or "constructive criticism " but moreso an observation. Me giving you painting advice would be like a kindergarten fingerpainter telling Michaelangelo how to paint the Sistine Chapel.

I belive you wanted an update and here it is. A day late but nobody is perfect, right..?

The first one is the sligtly modified Terminator I showed you before, not done much on him, added a bit o red to the chest and outlined the groin skull with black but I think it made a world of diffrence, he looks more complete now then what he did before..

The skull on the chest looks retarded on the photo but that´s got to do with the angle the photo is taken from.


Nr 2 done!! Quite pleased with how he came out. I added more red details on this the the last one and I think thats the key to these guys, you need some red to further define the blue and white areas. ( Not happy with the photo though, for some reason my camera would not focus on him...)



And the last one is very much WiP. The blue armour is all done, now it´s just mostly washing and highlightning the details left. But that´s the fun part!


Please let me know what you think

Looks good.
Think you might need another layer of lighter highlighting, right at the tips of where light would hit and shine and not around all the edges.

Looking for work....

I think he looks great so far buddy! I would recommend a little more light thos, pictures seem a little dark.

Keep up the good work!
