So this is my first thread, so be kind to me please!~
One of our friends wanted an Eldar Farseer painted in the Ulthwe fashion without the bleached bone. Other than that, I have creative license over it and that made me happy since I've been dying to paint Eldar models. (I have a Daemons and DE army).
He wants the sword to be "lightsaber" looking and a blue flame in his other hand with the black armor and whatever else I wanted to do with it. For the cape, I'm planning to do a twilight fade from light blue/white at the bottom all the way to black at the top of the cape and with stars and a moon. So wish me luck! I have a LONG ways to go with this model to be done. I promise it will look different at the end.
Here are some pics so far and I'll be posting more as I go. If I'm lucky, I'll be done with this by this weekend, but other things come up, so the reality of it is that I'll be done with it by next week, which is still a pretty good turn around I think.
Anyways, I started with a Grey primer and now got in black where I need for the time being and Scab Red for my creative touch, I think it will go well with blue and actually contrast it. The eyes are Scab with a touch of Blood Red, doesn't show too well through the picture. And I'm in the process of putting down layers of really thinned down Skull White to go where I eventually want lighter colors and/or white. The green sploch is from GS since the model's pewter and didn't fit right.
I hope this goes well and it will be great as I get feed back as I go. Thanks!~
