hey no prob.
There are few models i love seeing well done as much as eldar.
In my book, a nicely paited eldar with great skill of blending like this, beats almost anything anyday

Djartistknight Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2009
No,he is a piece Forgeworld did many years ago,almost when they first started i think! He was part of their 'Collectors Series',i think he's about 70mm or something...
Its a shame they dont do the Series anymore!

Wow amazing color blending there.

The blues to white are extremely smooth and the red runes on the sword are EXTREMELY impressive.

Only personal peev would be the muted colors there is ALOT of white in this model and it leaves the purples, blue, green and the bleached tabard are left muted but that wasn't what you were going for with this model,plus you were actually IN the Golden Demon contest.

Just giving criticism as a fellow painter.

Thanks for the crit...
Im not sure i fully understand the muted comment,but i shall offer what the idea was,and you may make of it what you will :D
Basically,this is based on the Geoff Taylor Codex art from a few editions ago,so the blues and purples are meant to be shadows to the white,not dominant,so if by muted you mea they dont stand out so much,good...thats what i was after! Same goes for the neutral tabard and the crest,i deliberately picked colours i thought would tie in nicely,but would let the white shine out...
At least,that was the idea...this was only the second model i'd ever tried on white basecoat,and indeed,i havent tried it since...
I do thank you for the comment though,hopefully that gives you a bit more of an idea what i was trying! :)

I remember that codex.

Well at least I know now that you wanted to express the white as much as you could.

:icondjartistknight:
Djartistknight Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Yea,the colours are meant to be interesting shadows :D and in that instance,i think they're ok...
I really should try another white undercoat figure sometime!

I hear white basecoats are hard to do if you don't use bright colors.

However given your early works w/ a white basecoat I can see that for you this is not the case.

Djartistknight Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2008
Eh well...theres plenty of tutorials about if you look,so i just picked one and tried it...but modified it as i went along,as is so often the case!
Im sure most people do that...find their own way with things...

Took a long time...but i think was worth the effort! I got the colour ideas from an older Eldar codex cover,a brilliant painting by one of my fave artists,Geoff Taylor.

How did I fail to miss this piece of yours? :confused:

Outstanding work Ben, how many hours did it take overall for this colour scheme?
Reply
:icondjartistknight:
Djartistknight Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2008
No idea how you missed it,it was my Featured Deviation for AGES till i put the Merc up lol
I couldnt begin to guess at the hours...it was a second attempt on a white basecoat,and it involved LOTS of thinned out washes to build up the shadows,then re-highlight...and thats just the armour!
Took me months on and off,i do know that..bloody chuffed and relieved to get him done though,definately one of my best pieces to date :)
