thx i did not know if it would turn out good but i liked the end result

I first wanted to do a purple to turquoise skin for my demons etc but the problem was that it was way to close to the armor(blue) so the minis just did not have enough contrast (like my hellbrute in the painting death match). When seeing the other entries i decided to change to a purple to pink for my helldrake and i like it a lot more.

I am still considering to change it though for my forge/mauler fiend. I want to try a purple to flesch tone next and see how that fits on the model since somthing is bothering me about the purple to pink, i dont know what though. It just does not feel
like skin to me... its hard to explain.

The purple to pink works, that's what I use on my Death Guard.

So i worked on my chaos lord this week

Image
Image

Soo things i like how they turned out are:
The gold parts
The Face on the shield thingy
And the mutation bits

Things that need to be improved for future models are

painting Fur
And Most important is that the sword doesn't seem to glow enough and that one really gets to me -.- the gun is fine not super great but it is better than the sword in my opinion

overall i like the though

Needs more depth throughout the model, especially on the smurf blue of the guy.

Then maybe your sword is going to stand out more.

yeah i did use to much of the light blue when i airbrushed it so i messed up a lot of the shading.I will try to get a better result on the next chosen, i do not feel like revisiting this guy right now since i am still trying to get my first army so that i can play :P

I suggest taking another look at your color palette. There seems to be too many colors, 3 is usually a good number unless they are neutral. With 5+ choices, the model starts to look a bit cartoony. Perhaps repainting the cape bone?

If you want an army fast just so you can play you should not bother with painting so much then, but if you really want to improve on your painting skills you are going to set aside one project and give all you got on that one and finish it completely.

And if you want an army painted well then roll up your sleeves and be patient.

Very nice stuff! Oddly enough I do not believe I have seen the blue and gold colour scheme before, and you pull it off very well.
