Slow progress you say?
You expected more?
Well in honest, i have actually made leaps and bounds in terms of progress, just not on stuff that gets posted here.
Issue 6 of The Cardboard Cartographer went live with a review of Cards Against Humanity, amongst other news and Kickstarter stuff.
Also, if you read my last post, then you'll know that I've been working on the Mice and Mystics figures, which have been posted on The science of selling yourself short.
I've scheduled an update of my progress on that project for the 29th, so expect to see that around 6/8pm GMT :3
Other than my various hobby activities, it has been a rather hectic week so far, and with the UK Games Expo over the next three days, I don't see much progress happneing until next week.
So for now, here's what I've managed to get done on Coteaz.
The gun makes it almost impossible to get a decent focus shot.
As such all of the highlights that define the checks, mouth, and eyebrows look none existent haha.
IRL it is honestly more defined and significantly paler.
I'll have to try and get a picture of these next time, but doing just this crashed my phone a few times as the lenses struggled a lot haha.
But as you can see I've finished work on the ragged fur cloak he's rocking
This picture is a bit chalky, but is pretty spot on for the IRL colour of the cloak, the reds seem super bright though.
This next one is a little better
I spent a great deal of time fixing the shading issues on the red cloak and it makes for a nice stark contrast that isn't jarring or out of place.
It isn't my usual gentle blended red, but I'm digging it.
I think it suits the style and shape of the cape/ cloak better.
All of the pictures have sneak peaks of the force staff.
Super work in progress; tons to do here.
But basically, the cream bits are set to be bone/ marble depending how it looks.
The brown bits are to be gold/ copper, probably done with citadel paints as apposed to the Liquid Gold I used for the armour.
The handle is going to be a rich reddish leather.
The skull is a green>white deal, with a gentle glow on the black skull, with a gloss varnish to finish.
And that is it so far.
It doesn't look like a lot, but it was a good few hours of work over a few days.
It shouldn't be too much work to finish this guy off.... I haven't decided on how to base him yet.
Probably be some form of Urban basing to fit with the Gaming Board Project.
Anyway, that is all for now.
Leave me some feedback!
