"Shading" the shaded basecoat with glazes...

OK folks!  A little more fun with glazing.  As always, the idea is not only to darken down the colors to create shadows... it is also about tinting your colors.  The metals in particular, since they are reflective.

I painted all the cloth surfaces red, so that this reflectivity would be easier to demonstrate.  This will also enhance the cooler colors in the areas where I would prefer it to be brass (more greenish).  The horse was painted as a dapple grey to add to that "warm vs cool" contrast.

I tried to continue this theme, even on the banner.

I will post the finished images soon!!  Stay tuned.  In the meantime, I enjoyed this new image from the Raging Heroes kickstarter.  This 'gas mask' faction will be perfect for the gals who will be outside the hive city defending the walls!!
