Fair enough. The client wanted glowing swords, so here we are.. Lol. I agree though, I immediately regretted making them white.

I really like the green myself. The glow looks great too.  It's probably the Star Wars fan in me, heh.

Yes Mat. How IS your painting going? 

Only 5 days left til we restart this whole thing and draw names. 

How I'm thinking we do it is we take stock of how many people finished, And I'll draw a random winner. I was playing with the idea that all of you who completed your work send OJ (or a designate) a number between 1-100. I'll randomly generate a number and post the number and my designate can inform me who has won the painting prize for the month. 

Also, I've completed my pledge. Here are my last four domaru.

It doesn't look too much like asphalt. It looks like snowy dirt road. I feel like it should be blacker? I don't know.

 

The white looks good on the models, but I would say you went a little heavy on the OSL on the third one.

Yeah. I agree - it's a first attempt on the asphalt bases - this is what he wanted. Without the white lines.

So I was working on matching that. 

As for the third model - I agree.. but her sword was so close to her chest, it was unavoidable. 😒

Looks good, Taylor.

I forgot to post that I am trying to finish something this month... I had a tabletop world townhouse that was started a couple months back, so I am working to finish that up before the month is out.

You could try a light layer of green stuff, then taking a tooth brush and running the bristles over it very gentle in one direction. Then a dark grey follow by a grey wash and finally a very light dry brush of a bit lighter grey.

Update! The blue and red are finished, the blue was airbrushed, pin washed, dry brushed and line highlight. The red has the same procedure except it was hand base coated not air brushed. Left I gave the silver and gold and then smaller details like scrolls and headlights Finally I have to Do the tracks. I have about 10 hours in so for and probably another 10 to finish. Hopefully I can finish by Monday night.

Yep those look great. The edge highlights are well done!

I just have a couple finishing touches to put on my building tonight. Do you need pictures, or can you take my word for it?
