Lucifer: Gloves, under cloth

More work on Lucifer. I base coated other parts that are going to be black, then did highlights. The highlights are not showing up on the left glove in the pictures, and I'm not sure why.

Anyway, I may revisit those highlights next time, and then do the short skirt thing. After that...I'd been planning on doing the red fabric, but I think instead I'm going to do the armor on his upper body. The reason for this is that base on how I'm having to hold the figure while I work on it, I expect some of that red to get worn off. So, I'll probably switch to doing that last.

Lucifer: Armor

 Since I finished Gaius for April, I'm going to aim to finish Lucifer in May. So, I picked him back up tonight. I worked on the armor, adding shading and highlights. The gold wasn't too bad, but I had to futz with the black a fair bit to get something I was happy with. I may mess with it some more; I'm not positive it's where I want it to be yet.

 Yay! Finished Gaius for April, with a couple days to spare! I actually finished him yesterday and the immediately broke the axe when taking him off the painting holder. Sigh. So I fixed that today, put some sealer on him, and he's good to go.

Gaius Pallidus: Vines

All I managed today was getting a base coat on the vines. I like the brown but will be adding in green, probably 50% or more.

Gaius Pallidus: Leather

Not huge changes today. I did the leather and wood bits on Gaius, which is just the axe handle and the straps on his armor. Now I'm at a point where I have to decide what to do with the vine/stick things on his left side. I was originally thinking I'd do green vines, but I think they're meant to be woody vines according to the studio paint job. Also, I think brown might go better with the rest of the figure. Right now I'm leaning toward brown with some green, but I'm going to think on it a bit.

Gaius Pallidus: Metal

 Got a base coat down on the bronze areas, then shaded and highlighted all the metal. TMM is not my strong suit. That being said, it's a little rough but I'm not unhappy with it. Next will be leather straps and such, then the vines.

Gaius Pallidus: Skirt, Metal, Skulls

 Today I got a fair bit of work in on Gaius. I finished his skirt, including the tassels, got the parts I'm going to do as steel base coated, and did the skulls on the base.

Gaius Pallidus: Hair, Skirt

 More work on Gaius. I painted the hair and horns; those are done. Forgot I was going to touch up a couple areas on his skin. Then base coated his skirt.

Gaius Pallidus: Skin shade & highlight

 More on Gaius tonight. I've shading and highlighted his skin; it's pretty much done now. I might hit the highlights with a glaze to warm them a bit. Next will be hair. I'd like to do the vines after that, but I think I have to wait as they're also over parts of his clothing. I might also glaze down some of the deepest shadow in a couple places where it's a little too stark, like the back of his calf.

Gaius Pallidus: Skin

 I was away from the hobby table for a while due to family issues. Back to it today, and since I'm definitely not going to be able to finish Lucifer this month, I've started a small figure for my April figure. This is Gaius Pallidus from Arena Rex. I've got a base coat and first shadow on his skin.
