Tonight we introduce the Heroic version of Syl-Iriah, a very spectacular figure from Raging Heroes. This is the miniature I used for the "Painting Greens" video. It certainly allowed me to explore a huge range of that color.
Here is a glimpse of the palette.
The concept was not just to show how many different greens we could make (which is still kinda neat!), but to explore the light and dark shades, and even high vs low saturation.
There are 3 main areas of exploration as a result. Color range, value range, and saturation. All of these things help to keep a rather complex mini such as this under control.
To get an idea of size, the base is 50mm. The base insert is a design that I sculpted for CoolMiniorNot as part of their Groundwerks line. I have a post coming up soon that shows me painting the base.
I also have another post that shows how this was prepped and assembled. As you find out in that post, this was very easy to assemble. Very surprising, given all the wings and such!!
I had a lot of fun creating the "center of interest". That was done by having the brightest and richest colors juxtaposed near some of the darkest and lowest saturated colors.
Hopefully you will also have more fun working with green after seeing the video!
