So, in the last post, as well as on Facebook, I raised the question whether to remove the shoulder guards of my female Farseer conversion or not. I got a lot of different replies, but in the end I decided to keep them, mainly because I didn't want to screw up the model. Removing the shoulder guards would have meant that I'd had to resculpt the whole shoulder area.
Now I started painting her and so far I managed to complete her robes, the cape, the shoulder guards and the brassy ornaments. I decided to paint the cape in a different colour, to create a visual seperation between what I consider to be an slim turquoise dress, and a wider dark blue cape. I think it makes her appear slimmer than if I had painted all the clothes turquoise.
How do you like the progress so far?
