Title: Redemption - PG Strike Freedom - Gauntlet of the Apocalypse
Post by: Shaid on September 04, 2011, 03:03:59 PM
Hi all,

As you've probably all seen, there was a PG Strike Freedom group build. I got my hands on a decent camera, so here are some better photos.

@Gaigun - This one's for you. He fell over right after I took this. Heavy wings are heavy.

It's a pain how many little flaws a macro lens brings out...  :'(

I'm still thinking of doing a panel wash...

Very nice colour scheme. Panel lining will definitely give it more depth but it might be a bit difficult to do a panel wash since it's a flat finish. Consider using a really thin wash (1:12 enamel) and build up the lines. This will prevent over staining the white areas.

That is the money shot!   Looks awesome.  I'm glad to have been able to see it come alive.

Shaid i'm really feeling this actually.  I'm glad that you tossed the sword in there!  I'm really impressed with the colours you choose and the paint job.  White is not an easy colour to paint so you get extra points for that.  Gaigun would know as well! haha.  but i agree. I think a very thin enamel wash would do wonders for the final look.  Either way great finish buddy!  Thanks for participating!

2nd thing.  GREAT photo quality!  i love the background and light settings!
