To that end I trimmed it down again which has offered up further issues with how to render the eyes in such a small space. I also need to do the top of the head and perhaps decide if I need to put the portcullis in?
Quick Photoshop later, what do you think?
I've also been wodering about the back of the pauldrons and the legs. As you can see the shin pads feature the crown from the main symbol. I have a number of Dark Angel decals I could use but I'm already wary of mixing the decals and freehand. Freehand on its own works for me but put it next to the clarity of a decal and it really highlights any deficiencies in the quality. I can free hand the Dark Angel symbol but I have the decals... find out tomorrow.

I like the freehand work, the broadsword is a great addition. There is plenty of room for eyes in that space, and it definitely looks better with the portcullis. I like this "making work harder for other people" gig; very cathartic ;-)ReplyDelete
You know I'm more than capable of making things more difficult for myself as it is! Don't worry, the photoshopping convince to go ahead with it.Delete
I like both looks but then I don't know the character background on it at all.ReplyDelete
Do you worry there will be fluff to explain Euronymous, I've written most of it, just need the finished pictures.Delete
Beautifully done, man! I like it with the portcullis a lot, but without is perfectly suitable as well. Good stuff!ReplyDelete
It always add the extras, right?! Ha, ha, I can never leave well enough alone.Delete
Great with the portcullis. Nice green and I don't think the makers mark is stand out-ish, but adds to the Dark Angel vibe.ReplyDelete
Some battle damage will clear that issue right up!Delete
i love what you are doing with it :D
Thanks, so close to finishing now, have to push on through or it'll stall before the end.Delete
