Kingdom Death: Preacher Pinup by Arnold Kovacs- What I Liked This Week

My friend (aka Malleus) recently just finished, from what I think, to be his best model yet. SOOO I am going to show it off here :P

I think he had done this sexy Kingdom Death model justice. He nailed the skin color, and the glow of her jewel turned out pretty sick to.

One of the things I really like is that all the colours work nicely together and he keeps them girly but still realistic. The lighting is really well done, I find that to be pretty hard to do myself at times, especially on the base, the shadow under that rock cliff is awesome!

Pleeeease vote for it here at CoolMiniOrNot!
He needs more votes!!
So behold, the more naughty than nice Preacher Pinup.

Zesty Highlights- What I Learned This Week

So it was brought to my attention that the red on the Judge's coat was turning a little pink in some areas, namely in the highlights. To highlight, I was originally just keeping it simple by adding white to the red. It wasn't looking to hot... somebody suggested I add a little bit of yellow or orange. And that is what I did! I mixed in a fairly bright yellow and it seems to be much  much better, you can check it out in the gallery here

I decided then to add some brown to liven up the shadows (originally I was just using black). I find it gives it a nicer feel.

Moral of the story: be daring! Use multiple colors when highlighting.


Painting this week!- What I Did This Week

Well I actually did get around to painting this week. I am pretty much done the coat, I just need to touch up the sleeves... and then I'm ready to move onto a new color! YAY!

I have been very busy with a bunch of stuff so I apologize for not being as consistent or active with updates. I am planning to be very active in December once exams and assignments slow down and work as well!
