If you paint the flesh normally like the cloth wasn't there, seal it, then paint the cloth it might be easier.

    Hey Kath! I'll try that out, thanks! Can't find which wip you talk about though, remember which one it was?

    Well, I think your tips helped a bunch Kath, didn't go quite as dark as the images I googled were but I believe I improved a lot with your tips, the clothes don't look wet any longer at least.

    Yeeeah, so Skellie is forcing me to hold his hand while going to Germany's GD this year... I guess it'd only be fair if I tried to concoct a little something to bring and place in a showcase there myself.

    Yeeeah, I have to ask, just how loosely do you define the word "speaking" in that sentiment exactly? XD

    Okay, somebody tell life to stop getting in the way. When it jumps up and demands attention I can't keep up with posts and then have pages to read through. I miss really cool stuff and I hate that!

    Sorry I missed this the first time around Chrome. The WIP thread had the Reaper vampire in it. If you still want to check it out, I'll find it for ya. But I think your gal here is definitely much improved! You did really well! What I'm seeing in the photo is that you could take the flesh under the cloth darker if you wanted to but that's entirely a preference thing of how translucent you want the clothing. I can't see her sides but on a female mini, accenting the curve of the breast underneath and on the sides with a color like Reaper Ashen Brown really helps. It's a cool toned light purplish brown that really works for shading and accenting flesh. And I'm thinking a touch of that in the middle in the deepest recesses would really sell the sheer aspect of the top.

    Sorry again hun but fantastic job with it!

    ETA: Okay just in case someone out there wants to see the sheer clothing technique on the Reaper vampire chick it's in thread http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/...-Results/page7

    And starts at post #126

    BTW - I stripped the paint off of her and will be starting over one of these days, so I get to do it all over again. lol!

    Don't worry about it Kath, I know how life can grab you.

    I'll try deepening the shadows bit when I get back to her later.



    Did some more on the big guy now.
    Sadly, the helmet looks like it has had a stroke. Not sure how or if I should do anything about it now...

    I decided to keep it as it is. I'll do the adjustments later if I still find it necessary.

    The detail is great but he does look like he got smacked in the noggin with a shovel. Still its a fantastic sculpt, Chrome, no doubt about it.

    Yeah, it really does. But it does look like it'll get lost in the detail when the rest is building up around it.
