'This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope'.
A little break up from Warhammer for a change :)
This is the 72mm. model by Knightmodels, purchased before they dropped the Star Wars license. Gorgeous sculpt, as usual. If only my skills were up to it...
I painted this some time ago (some years in fact!) and it was my very first attempt of painting sourced light on clothes and skin. I was a little bit lost at the beginning, but the only way to learn is making mistakes!
|Don't you smell like... burnt hair?|
I didn't want to overdo the light effect. At the moment I was reasonably satisfied, but now I see it again and I find all the mistakes I made (well, I find some of them, I haven't learned about the rest...). The light transitions are too rough, the model needs more reflected light, smoother transitions and definitely more shades.
|All the upper part needs blue everywhere|
In spite of all that, I still find the model really, really great. It is on my shelf, waiting for me finding the skills (and courage) to repaint it properly.
One day. I hope that not far, far away...
