I think it was pretty close to my Photoshop effort too.
I also added a couple more decals on the knees. Not entirely sure if the Ravenwing badge makes sense but it's OK and although I can freehand that 1 I just wanted to use it up to mark the legion number.
The following night I scuffed all the knee and thigh plates. It's definitely much less green than it was before, I may have gone OTT but I'll try to reign it in a bit as it goes further up the knight.
I then finished some missing highlights on the black areas of the carapace
Here you can see the limited chipping on the Ion Shield, helm and helm carapace, I don't know whether to do a glow effect around the Dark Angel symbol, if so it'd most likely need to be orange, what do you think, too much breaking up of the green [I do feel I'm losing it a bit]?
I also did some limited chipping on the chest piece. Next up I need to do the battle damage on the carapace and pauldrons, then verdigris the torso and weapons. Lastly it'll be the glow effects and we're essentially done.
So this may well be completed next week, well ahead of schedule and I can then focus on the Bastions.
Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 |
Love it! I wouldn't be tempted to put a glow on the ion shield to be honest, it looks great as it is!ReplyDelete
You're probably right, already started putting orange on all the generator elements [surprisingly more of them than on the Cerastus] so there's a lot of extra colour going on which means any opportunity to keep the green is priority.Delete
Looking really good. Love the green, and all the weathering just adds to the awesomeness :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, getting close now I can almost taste it.Delete
Lovely, lovely, lovely! Really dig how it's coming together man!ReplyDelete
Cheers, I'm digging it too and can't wait to see it altogether and complete.Delete
I think the Ravenwing badge makes sense if he supports the Ravenwing, they may give him one to honour his efforts. I did a similar thing with my Iron Snakes Contemptor. If it was me, though, I would paint that tiny section of the armour black. Like I said before, I love the heraldry :-)ReplyDelete
Darn, that would have made sense to do that, it's a bit late to do that now. The downside to posting retrospectively - often good suggestions are obsolete by the time they're offered, grr.Delete
Incredible job man!ReplyDelete
i really like all of it hahaha
Thanks dude, glad you like it.Delete
