The clothes are finished and i was going for a velvet/silky look i think i achieved that look its all got nice and smoot with the blending.

i dont really like vallejo mat and satin varnish it always gives me more shinny than i was looking for.

Now heres what i need your help, the backpack i was looking for some angel kind of backpack, but something isn't quite right

Would you change the backpack , the wings color or what?
The backpack isnt painted just primed.

I think that this mini is cursed :cry:

thanks

I like he front of the cloth but am not that enthusiastic about the back.
I would make shading deeper on the white parts, to improve definition of details.

The backpack looks just fine to me. I like the idea, but the feathers look flat to me again. But I tend to expect too much ;)

Welcome here! :)

welcome aboard :)
I actually like the idea of wings - but as mahon wrote feathers look flat; drop od wash should help :)
I don't think the purple was the best choice for the skirt :think:

He mentioned the backpack (wings) are only primed at the moment, so that could be natural coloring from the base coat.

Miniature wise, I think the backpack looks good. Realistically I couldn't see anyone wearing that around in battle unless the wings extend and allow the user to take flight. It could just look odd because the design isn't very viable. :think:

Hi thanks for the help.

I finished the metals on the armour, and im going now for the sword (since it had no work besides the first color just to see some kind of finished picture)

The back cloth has the same look as the front i just taken a brighten picture to see if the bleending of the colors was ok, and i think it is :lol:
In the cloths i was looking for a Velvet silk kind of look, were the light would change the colors between purple and violet, i didnt wanted the normal white cloth.
It looks better in the mini then in my photos (blame the photographer :lol: )

As for the wings, thats my big problem they look odd.
I just gave them a blue wash to see the effect.

I still trying to figure if ill go with a diferent backpack maybe one from the DA command set, or paint the wings with 3 possibilities:
- Black/grey shadows
- Blue shadows
- or a mix black grey and blue

Oh, btw maybe this will help the base will be of a ruined city, that way giving him the look of the saviour, thats why the wings.

Here's the dread and the terminator with the bases finished

I like that Dread, nicely painted. I have to agree with the above comment about the Champions robes, they just don't look right. I think it is the purple personally, doesn't seem to fit right with the green/bone scheme.
