3!

Finished up Abdel today. Here he is with the blade hilt attached, and then with his plinth.

Abdel: Belts & Buckles

I've been sick for a few days, and today finally felt well enough to get back to painting. I worked on highlights for Abdel's belts, and did the buckles and studs and such.



Small changes, but I think they made a big difference as far as making him look finished.

All that's left now is the (not yet attached) dagger hilt.

Abdel: Belts

Today was some clean-up of the mane and belts, and then adding some edging and cracks to the belts to make them look worn. No highlights or shadows yet, that will come next.

Abdel: Last of the stripes

I finished up his tunic today.



Like I said, there's really just a few bits left to do on him now.

Abdel: More stripes

Next figure, no stripes.




This is some yellow 'shimmer' on the cloth, as well as some shading and highlighting on the area. I will finish the other side next time. I still have a ways to go, but he's actually mostly done!

Abdel: Experiment

The picture I'm working from for the robe has kind of shimmering stripes to it, so I'm playing with replicating that. This is an attempt at adding that in a small area, just to see how it will go.



I don't think it quite reads right, but I don't hate it, either. I'll probably continue and see how it works on a larger area.

Abdel: Last of the spots

Finished up the spots on the stripes on Abdel's robe.




I also went over the highlights on his turban with bright red ink. I'm not sure if it's better or not, but it is subtly different.
