Through suggestions made by the other coaches in the tourney and thoughts I had, I decided to go with a dark purple and orange scheme. Fans of American college football think Clemson. I also tried out zenithal (sp?) priming for the first time.
It really helps the details stand out so I will continue to do it. I was just putting base colors on for the test so I didn't use this style of priming to its full potential.
Cloth and leather - VMC Hull Red and VMC Royal Violet, 1:1
Metal - Citadel Dwarf Bronze
Skin - Citadel Ratskin Flesh
Fur - VMC Flat Brown
The skin and fur are much too saturated. The bronze is meh, not orange enough. The purple turned out how I wanted it to. His base broke so the picture isn't very good too. This is the first time I've done a test model that I was this disappointed with. Back to the drawing board. I hope the next test works better.
