Default Commission: Eldar Farseer

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!~

Yeah, that's the reason why I don't like Rustoleum that much and knew I should have gone with the Krylon white. *sigh* oh well. Painting's still going okay. We'll see how the end product is.

Wal-Mart hardware section .. $.68 rattle can of flat white spray paint.. Best Primer I've found out there so far. It coats, it sticks, it's tough, it doesn't chip or clog detail. It comes in different colors.. Nuff said.

FFX


God created Firemen so Cops would have heroes.

lol. I usually use the Krylon white or black primer, but Drannith decided we should use the Rustoleum since there was white and black going on the actual model. So I was just kind of complaining at him. :D

But what is the brand of the primer you use FFX???

No wonder I couldn't find it anywhere!!! Thanks Djinn...wait...OMG!!! It's DJINN!!! *snaps hypothetical paparrazzi picturs of Djinn*

Not working on it tonight. My lower back's killing me for cleaning the whole house almost all by myself. Though last night I got the helm to be like the back of the cloak, so slowly making progress.

Plans on a short road trip tomorrow (for more paints and maybe models >.< ), so I'll be working more on the model starting Monday.

One thing I can see from your paints is they almost look as if they are a bit thick. Might add a couple drops of water or paint additive to it to thin is some.

Yeah, I went and saw the picture.

And yes I did thin down the paint, yes even the black, but I think it's becuase the primer was on so thick that the paint looks like it picked it up a bit. I might end up stripping it after I see a little bit more done to it and repriming it this time with white and repainting it. >.<
