A little progress for Pedro

Nothing finished this week, but I've made some good progress on Pedro Kantor.  The photograph isn't great, especially as the blends don't come out very well - blame the lighting (or lack of it)!

The blue is a little brighter than I intended, so some Necron Abyss is going to be used to add some darkness and depth (I'm trying to avoid him looking too much like an Ultramarine, and failing a bit at the moment).  I don't want there to be too much red - the GW studio scheme has overdone the red in my opinion.  The base has kind of worked, but needs some more shading added, and I'll do the rim Graveyard Earth like the rest of my Crimson Fists.  Everything else I'm pleased with, The braiding has come out well in yellow (although this maybe contributing to the Ultramarine look), and I'm really seeing the benefits of using a Windsor & Newton Series 7.  I don't understand why it makes things better, and I wouldn't believe it if someone told me, but it really does.

As always comments and criticism welcome!


  1. It's looking great. Are you planning to glaze it with the Necron Abyss? I'm interested to see it after it's added.
    Oh, and you're completely right about the W&N, I was amazed at the instant difference it made the first time I used mine.

  2. GreyCleric08 - I thought you might like him so far ;)

    SAJ - I'm not sure about the Necron Abyss yet, it's either going to be a glaze or I might try working it into the shadows. The picture isn't great and it's a little darker in real life - I need to give it some more thought.

    I had to stop myself from buying another W&N brush today - I bought lichen instead...
