Yedharo Capricorn Bust Finished?
And so we return to Mr Capricorn.. Some more work done on him and hopefully he can be called finished soon?
Thinking process here is that he is done. I retouched up the gold pieces, making it a bit brighter and trying to make a few more hot spots. Not sure if it is hot or dark in the right places, but it works for now.
Horns I tried to lighten them up. Mrs Lee is not impressed that they are so similar to the skin.. but you can't please everyone so.. I also tried to make the runes in the horn and the stone on his belt pop by painting them blue, and to make it look like they are glowing. I don't think I achieved it as well as I would have liked, but for a first shot at it, I think it came out OK.
Overall, I think it was a good exercise in some NMM, and OSL type of work. I got to play around with some larger areas with it, and see how they work together.
Will I do it again? Probably.. actually thinking into other armies ( infinity for example ) I might be doing more NMM and OSL work now that I am feeling more comfortable with it. Might not come out the best, but it will still look decent I think.
Just have to figure out now how to base it, and make it so that the wife can have it on her desk at work to show off!
