Thanks Maru... I'm so stupid lately. For five years in Art Highschool they tought me to break greens with reds and I forgot it all.
I will try to add a little bit of red... hope I won't mess it up.

Hellspawn - thanks

So I've worked some more on the greens, added some red glazes to the shadows and tried to smoth out the folds of the cape. I must say I'm satisfied with the result.
Check it out...

instead of going to yellow or white I would recommend going to some kind of bone color (like Bleached Bone for example). They're warmer and more saturated than white and not as aggressive as yellow.

actually I would add a little bit of such color to your highlights and pull them a bit further

I had a power outage for almost a day due to a lighting storm. My fish almost died... :cry: and I was pissed that I have no internet.

Maru - I will have a lot more photos comming to this forum. I want to learn more and push myself. And getting help from you guys will definitelly help me.
I got a lot more confident when it comes to painting after I nearly won third place at the Adepticon/Crystal Brush competition (Fantasy Squad). Even though it was just third (bronze) place it would be my greatest achievment in hobby... unfortunatelly I was not at the award ceremony so they gave the award to the runner up. Pretty shitty thing to do but there is no point in arguing.

I decided to hold on with the cloak (red and turquoise) for now. I might come back to it later.
I want to finish the front of this mini so I can finally glue the left arm (before I lose it :P ). As you can see I painted the face... I'm not good at painting faces but this one came out pretty well (to me).

All he needs are eyes and hair (although how I'm going to paint white hair on pale skin I have no idea... )

mahon - I love how you painted my mini for me :lol:

I love the skin tone, though I don't think that frey hair on white/pale face would make face clearly seeable

Looking very nice. I agree about the skin and the hair, perhaps some purple shading would give some more of a pallid colour to his face to differentiate the two. I would also be slightly tempted to push the highlights on the green sections but only on very specific areas such as the knee to show more zenithial lighting.
