    Default WIP Pedro Kantor

    Hi all!

    This is the 2nd project I am working in. Pedro Kantor from the Grimson Fists.

    Everything I will be posting it's painted using kolynsky brushes and a wet palette (this is actually one of the things I am learning how to use).

    The armor is done in 3 layers + highlights as follows:

    Prime coat: Black
    Base coat: necron abyss + Black + regal blue (3:3:1)
    2nd coat: same as base coat (4:3:1)
    3rd coar: ditto (6:3:1)
    highlight: 3rd coat + white
    glaze: regal blue + water (1:5)
    wash: black + water (1:4)

    The gold bits I tried a NMM technique:

    Base coat: Desert yellow
    1st highlight: desert yellow + tausept ochre (1:1)
    2nd highlight: tausept ochre + iyanden darksun (1:1)
    final highlight: iyanden darksun + white (1:3)

    I threw several washes in there:
    1) snakebite leather + water (1:5) - several layers
    2) jade green + water (1:5) - couple of layers

    I wanted to give a dark gloom to the mini. I wanted to practice with the Day-for-Night effect. I am thinking to incorporate this into the dio I am planning to make for the mini.

    I want to thank you all in advance for the comments and for the inspiration I have got watching some of the minis on the website!

    Best regards!

    Nice work so far
    To make the mini really stand out get the extreme edge highlights more crisp and sharp.

    Thank you for asking but I don't do commissions.

    Not one of my favourite models but I would take some more time to finish the wash lines on the shoulder pads and backpack exhausts. This should make it a 7 and the trick is to finish everything of course
