    Default My Legolas, but for another

    Ok guys gona post a WIP of a legolas mini i\'m painting.

    The figure is for my girlfriends brother, as Legolas is his favourite character from lotr.

    Going for a typical colour scheme. Grey cloak, green jerkin and bluish grey undershirt.

    Still getting used to taking photo\'s so dont kill them :P

    Also any ideas how to do blonde hair??

    Looks decent so far. From what I can see in the pics I would say bring up the highlights a bit more. Also try and get better lighting when taking pics. Really hard to see any detail in them. As far as the blond hair goes I would start out with a light brown and work it up to either an off white or a dull yellow depending on what you are trying to achieve. If you let me know what brand of paints you are using I can try and give you some color names.

    For blond hair I usually go with sneakbit leather, highlgihted with bleached bone, with a touch of yellow in it.

    And try uping to aperture time on your camera to make the picture brighter (that and more light of course...).

    Keep going !!! :P

    Yea i was thinking either snakebite up to bleached bone or vomit brown up to bleached bone. Want to avoid making it look comically yellow though.

    I will look through the settings on my camera properly later and try and get some better pics up. Did a little work on his gauntlets and straps before. Aiming for a leather look, anyway you\'ll hopefully see this later with the pics

    bleached bone would take it to a platinum blonde
    this was done with bronzed flesh as a highlight

    Looks pretty smart mate, some more shots would be great from different angles, and some more detail. But from this distance looks pretty spot on :>
