No no no! You are going the wrong way if you want to darken it. This is slaanesh! Paint it gold, or bronze, or silver. Match the sword hilt, horns, shoulders, and claw accents. Pick something bright for the cloth. Would that green on the sword work on the claws? Brighten those highlights! Make it look like it wants to be seen!

lol, i'm not darkening the whole model, just the horns, though I do need to probly add some more colour to the hand. But as for the cloth and such I wanted to do a post fall but pre heresy colour so I replaced what would be white with black and I feel it came out good, though i'll look into some more shading or something on the armour cuz the highlights could be a bit stronger

So, basically paint him in bright, loud electric colors?.

No, it doesn't have to be bright electrics, just brighter! More opulent, more bold, more flash. More slaanesh!

And this is why I don't like Slaanesh armies (not actually hating on the style, tho): I like my colors toned down, and my enemies squished in a fine paste :p.

For me it depends... I like pre-heresy slaanesh, but post heresy EVERYTHING ELSE. cuz the bright red and blue of khorne and tzeentch I enjoy.... the old pale and bright white of death guard horrify me cuz its just an excuse to not paint things clean when u do a heresy death guard force... though I like pre heresy emperor's kids and they are a medium toned purple and bright gold;

Image

sooooo I am making them a little less saturated in purple, and a few changes in the scheme, and adding a lot of green... though I did do more work to the puppetmaster and will ask for ur comments;

The loincloth desperately needs some leopard spots like the ones on his left leg. Right now the black sort of dissappears into the purple.

not leopard spots, scrolling that gets hidden by the sword and i refuse all forms of animal print (I dislike it in real life oh so much) and I really dont wanna do a different colour for the loin cloth cuz the only other one I can think of is a bone or white... if yall have an idea other than those 2 that would work tell me now and i'll weigh the options

EDIT: I am adding some yellow gilding on the loin cloth, pics will come later, looking sick atm imo
