Taqlali it trouble! (the smily face means just kidding)bcauchi wrote:Yay an update! Listen Noel, just judging by the photos i have just some comments to make.
- The machine gun barrels are the same colour as the tank, i guess they should be gunmetal. If they are then it must be the photos and just ignore this comment.
- The dead guy. You painted him as if he was alive. A dead corpse changes colour and is not a healthy and lively looking pink, the docs at our club can vouch for this but i have seen some corpses in my life and they are definitely greyer. The more time passes the greyer they look and the stiffness of this guy should indicate that a considerable amount of time has passed. The blood would also be less reddish and blacker, much darker when blood dries up it is very dark indeed.
- his knee is way too clean for the wound he has and the fact that his uniform is torn means that he has been hit in the knee, paintwork there should show more damage.
Just my 2 cents worth
- MG's looks ok to me maybe it's the photo. However, this is how I see it.... a brand new MG will have a bluish tint "bluing", but with handling and cleaning it starts to have a blue/brown tint with a metal sheen.
- Dead guy! I took your suggestion and went over some areas with Payne's grey oil paint (bluish colour) and darkened the reds. However the photo is pushing more on red hue. If you look at the exhaust cover how orange they are... the real model is actually very subtle.
- I darkened the colour at the knee also and on the fabric. Regarding damage, it's not always the same. There are severed limbs that don't produce much blood and I was reluctant to go for a severe injury for viewing sake
Thanks for you suggestions
