So after many months of being terribly busy, I finally have an update with pics for you all. Rex was done a couple of months ago, but I didn't have time to upload stuff even though I sit at the computer for forever. I took some really horrible pictures, so please bear with me. He also looks a lot better in person, so please understand that (as it always happens with models). I also went in and touched up a couple of the weird white spots that appear, but I don't know if it got more chaffed or whatnot during the shipping process. I think I do need to find a better way than just bubble wrap the models.
This model really did help me with trying out TMM and I think I'll do that in the future instead of NMM, though I am still going to attempt to learn NMM when I have time. >_<
Well, comments, critiques, anything accepted.

WOOT! Finally...I was wondering what happend to you Arumi. So glad to see you posting again.

As for your model, I particularly like the power sword. The different hues of blue from dark to light on both sides of the power sword look good! His cape looks great as well, the transitions from dark in the recesses to lighter at the peaks of the cape are great!

The silver metalic parts of his armour could have done with just a little more shading in the groves and cracks. Other than that I think you did very well and I am happy to see you here posting again!

ohhhh....WTH happend to his base? And do you have anything else planned?

Regards,
DoE

Thanks guys, it's been a long while and it's actually kind of weird being back. I feel like I have no right to comment on ppl's work. Hahaha!!! I'll get back to painting again sometime, but 2 jobs and kids over the holidays have kept me pretty busy.

Yes, the black lines are chips. I tried doing them with a micron pen rather than a fine paintbrush since it was better control for me and it seems it turned out pretty well. Though on hindsight I think I should have put a slight bit of silver over it to make it look more like a chip rather than black lines.

Thanks DoE. You have no idea how much I cursed at the sword doing it by hand. Lol. I am really thinking about picking up a paintbrush here pretty soon so that will become a lot easier and more consistant than it is right now.
Yeah I do agree with you on the silver parts, but that was after viewing the pics on the computer...months later...maybe only one month...but very very late hindsight. Hahaha! At least next time I'll know better, right?
As for the base, it's gone! JK. I let the "customer" aka our good friend do up his own base since he already has his own army and just wanted that to be consistant.

Hopefully I'll be painting more in the future, but I'll be traveling around the country next year for my job, so we will see what the future holds. I will definitely check heresy more often though.
