Every so often, it's fun to see a few minis side by side.
In this case, a few recent Celtos figures.
While I wasn't trying to match any specific colors, I did gravitate towards a similar scheme for both the skin tones and the golds.
These were among a number of testing ground figures where I experimented with bright seafoam greens in my golds, along with purples and high intensity seinnas.
While the majority of the colors were somewhat muted (mostly mixed together to keep them toned down) I left a few colors of high saturation to pop and create centers of interest.
It was also part of a much broader experiment where I try out all my latest techniques on figures that are more than 10 years old.
Since I am painting so many brand new figures these days from emerging companies, going almost back to the beginning (or at least a significantly earlier period in the development of miniatures) is a great contrast!
I have learned a great deal, as I do in each experiment.
Stay tuned for much more, both the very new, and the less new. :-)
