The first model I have attempted to put onto a plinth, and do up for a "proper" painting competition. I have posted up other shots of the model vs it's older plinth that was far too large for this model. I know I could do more on it, but there has to be a point where you say stop..
Things I learned from this though was how to cover up cork board more to make it look less like cork board, and adding new colors to skin tones to get interesting results. This time it was adding some grey into the tone to make it a bit more pale in comparison.
I could/should have done more to give it more contrast between the areas.. right now it looks like there is a global light all around it, but again there is a point where if I added more I would risk ruining it all. Didn't want to go that route.
Metal sections were much better this time around though. More black added to the bronze to make the shadows, and again grey/white added into it for the highlights. Strange but true!
Anyways.. I can now officially post this up as my entry has been confirmed as entered into the contest over at Massive Voodoo. So I will post up the other entries over the coming days as well to show what I have entered.
And a shot of the back of the model.
Still need to work on the Black sections, but they are getting better. Ok.. next up is the final pics of the Pirate Bust posted earlier..
