View Full Version : Some Ret Freehanding
04-22-2010, 04:28 PM
Originally I had some freehand designs on my Ret jacks, but they were meant to look more carved-into rather than painted-on the jacks. It looked good, but the jacks in general still struck me as bare especially because the deisgns had a tendency to become lost against the similarly colored hull or simply look like scribblings. With that in mind I went with something that would "pop" a bit more involving some vaguely Iosan designs mixed with symbols for the various dieties.

the freehand work is great I'd like to see more!

Very sweet -- I like the colour combination a lot.

I think the overall brightness of it works well with the Phoenix because of the sharp contrast with the sword... but honestly I feel like either the other two need another color like the Phoenix, or they need to be toned down.
But, granted, I tend to like more subtle/muted styles, so I honestly liked what you had before a bit better. This is well done stuff, though, don't get me wrong. ;)

very, very sweet. I knew those shoulder pads would be awesome for freehand work, but I can't freehand well enough to pull it off.

Gorgeous freehand, I love the glow!

Oh wow, you made really bad and ugly models look pretty damn cool. I will always have a +1 admiration for anyone who can paint a RET model that makes me take a double look.

Very nice neat work. Really pops like you aimed for.

Can I ask how you painted your bone colour on these? Looking to go for a similar colour myself. But without your awsome freehend work!

Lovely freehand. I rather like your coloured blades as well.
Does the Manticore have off-coloured wrist-blades? Could we get a shot that shows them off?
