UPDATE: You all are right, The white is just too stark. I’m going to play around some more with it to see if I can find a color that works, but ultimately he’s going to get a toss in the drink so that I can start all over.
Taking a break from Iron Fang Pikemen and Kayazy, and looking forward to beyond my wedding, I decided to try out the Menoth color scheme I’ve had in my head for so long. I’m not sure how I feel about it…Obviously he isn’t done, but the general idea is there.
More pics and thoughts after the jump…
The idea was Sanguine armor, black cloth, and lots of bright yellow gold and silver metal. I like the Sanguine armor and I think I did a really good job on two-brush blending it. It may still need a bit more highlighting to bring it up however. I haven’t touched the cloth yet.
My big hangup over it is the outlining on the shoulders/armor plates. I’m not sure I like it, but I’m not really sure what color to put there. Looking at the color wheel a green would be a complimentary color, but I’m not a fan of green and I think it would look even more out of place than the white. But the Sanguine and black are dark colors so I feel like I need something to “bring it up”, much like how I use black and a dark, more bronze-ish gold on my Khador to “bring down” the white and red.
