Every corner abandoned too soon

Yesterday ended up being ultra hectic, my wife had vertigo and I had to stay home with the kiddos. And they were in rare form for some reason, yay! Daddy is home lets drive him mad! haha.. When they went to bed I got my wife something to drink and then ran to the painting room!.. SILENCE!



I needed a break from painting all blue so I figured I'd work on the Seer a bit. Currently he's looking very Ulthwe but I'll be adding some more colors to him and blending the ones I already have on him. The Super red cape is really throwing a brother off haha.. looks very plastic Halloween style to me right now 8)
It's hard to see in the pics but the black areas aren't just black they are edge blends. I went with purple on the edge to keep the purple theme going on. I'm still working on locking down the color for his chest and sleeves. I was originally thinking of purple but I don't want to OP him, so then it was grays which are in the lead right now. I don't want to introduce too many new colors into the mix.



I will have to say I'm very happy with the ease of the conversion. I used most of the Seer and just the legs of a biker pretty easy peasy as I mentioned in a previous post. The greenstuff didn't take too long and blamO he looks pretty cool.

I did mess with the Jetbike a bit but I don't know if I'm happy with it. I started with just a darker blue trans level but it was too blended and didn't give much of a pop. I then outlined it and is now very visible but not sure I'm "feeling" it. I'm thinking I should go back in an paint around it blending it again or paint inside of the design. I'll probably end up doing three or four different things, hating it and then going back to the first thing I tried. Usually the way I roll! haha
On a completely side note I went to see New Order on Sunday night and it was awesome! Sadly I'm getting old and my ears have finally stopped righting. They ended up playing four Joy Division songs as well which was pretty damn cool. I wish they would have played them a bit slower, not a criticism just a comment. Whoot!
