Boo said:Thank you very much :) The red was pretty simple, I started with a base coat of dheneb stone and built up a dark red colour from that, leaving some dark red in the edges with every highlight. When I felt satisfied with the red I added some boltgun metal where I wanted the paint to be chipped off, and then some mithril silver to enhance the effect. And Voila! :D

Nikostratus said:Wow, rapid progress! :thumbsup: I agree that his skin should be a bit lighter, it could be the pic but to my crumbling eyes it seems similar to the colour of the horse flesh and by making it lighter it will pop out more.
Nikostratus said:How to do it, i dont know, how have you painted it so far? Im glad you changed the tail aswell. The red and chipped metal effect is really well done and the whole thing is coming on great. Good work.

I need to try that out myself (think I'm going to look for a tutorial though XD).

This may be true and I see your point, but this particular one doesn`t seem much care about it - his armour is very heavily weathered and damaged.TobinRoss89 said:sea.man said:have you considered adding rust to the armour? To make it look better you could also highlight and shade the armour a bit.
When I think of blood dragons I dont see them as the type of warriors that would let there equipment get rusted. I see them taking great pride in keeping all of there weapons and armor in tip top condition.
