I am with Dave. I think that you have done an excellent job on the red skin. There is a lot of definition in the muscles and the wings, but in my opinion he is just too red. Perhaps a contrasting color on the armor would help break it up a bit. If you wanted to stay with a red theme for the armor I would go darker and deeper. Perhaps keeping the armor closer to a scab red color would help break up the color scheme.

You also may want to add another highlight on the loin cloth to make it pop a little more.

Just fiddly little things as you have a good looking model there! Good work make!

yeah, i will end up deepening the red on the armor. Like i said there are some changes and additions i need to make lol

@johnnymajic

For the skin i started with Grey primer then base coated with GW Merchrite Red.

From that point i went with a 1:1 Merchrite Red and Gore Red over the whole model.

Then I did a full HEAVY cover of Delvan Mud. Don't be skimpy, they make it all day long.

(At this point you should have a deep red on your model)

I then went in and hit the high points with a medium drybrush of Model Color Blood Red

then a light DB of the same color again.

And there you go! Simple and clean color changes in red.

(this is how i got the muscle definition that i did)

With the wings. After you have coated in Delvan Mud you just start going in and adding thin layers of Blood Red in the center of the wing and work it out to the fingers of the wing. (Note: It should not reach the finger but instead keep a smooth transition to the deep red.)
Then repeat the process till the raised portions of the wing are to your liking.

I hope this helps in you endeavors to get the red color of your liking
