The test figure is a heavy rider. There was no light nor shadow in the original paint, so I began to darken the mini with washes (red for the flesh, brown everywhere else), then lighten with several layers. I also painted some details that I had forgotten, such as the umbo on the shield. Same process for the horse.
The two pictures below allow us to compare before and after.
This is another view of the same rider, which makes me realize that I have some mistakes to correct. Anyway, there is more contrast now, so I think it is an improvement.
I also modified a Light Infantry (Psiloi) element: the flesh has been redone on both minis, I've added some light on the trousers, and the base has been repaired.
|the guy on the right had the flesh of a zombie !!|
|I could have given them another javelin in the left hand|
Even better than the rider in my eye. What do you think ?
To be continued :)
