Film Noir

The Legion returns with another interesting character figure.  As with all the other snow based figures, this one must match previously painted figures.  It means an extremely limited palette.

Normally I would try to inject as many different subtle color changes as possible into the grays, but going too far with that would take these out of harmony with what's already been done.

So, I did a tiny bit of greenish tints in some places, and purplish grey in others.  These two grays play off each other (green and purple mixed together make a very interesting gray, after all!), so I could get away with it. :-)

I even did an entire video on gray colors in the Painting Pyramid "Shades of Grey" video.

Here's a peek at one of the 'color theory' videos, this one covering Yellow.
