    Default 10 balls WIP

    First WIP, thought I would post because Ive feel i'm making a bit of progress with this dark elf. The face was done with dheneb stone with washes
    of purple and highlighted up with skull white. The amour was done the standard way with metallics.

    The reason for posting is first the sword - my first ever attempt at NMM - using codex grey, black and white - im pleased with the effect but would
    like some comments with unbiased eyes :-)

    and second - first ever time using a wet pallet. Loved it, found it much easier with blending (as the colours didn't keep drying out). I would say to
    beginners to give this a try, I will be using it from now on.

    Cheers

    this is seriously looking good. I love the flesh you have created and the NMM looks good also. Does your wet pallet have a sheet on top of the paper towels or just paper towels?

    Just a few layers of paper towels

    Try some baking paper on top, that will help a lot.

    Hi 10 Ball, my wet pallette used to look a lot like yours. Now it's upside down though. I found reaching into the tub a pain in the backside so put the sponge & baking paper on the inside of the lid & drop the tub onto it as a cover whenever I'm not using it. Definitely buy the baking parchment, you're only half way through discovering how well it can all work at the moment!

    Nice, solid colour choices on the DE, looking very dramatic

    Cheers, B.

    Cheers both for the advice - this is whats great
    about CMON these kind of tips save alot of time.

    @ Milosh - I've got the paper today, cheers

    @ B - your dam right about the tub, will do what
    you suggest :-)

    The NMM is working nice so far. Maybe push the highlights on the tip and deeper shadow on the darker side near the guard (hilt?). The light stroke could be z shaped by lighting a bit along the edges, always works well

    Hi, little more done. Added some more highlights as suggested by GreenOne, then some blues and browns (very thin washes) to the amour and blade.
    Oh and some purple to the gold :-)

    That's great skin. The idea of working reds in really makes a difference.
