The Sidhe strike again, another fantastic Celtos figure by Kev White.
I had a lot of fun with the metals on this, mixing in that triple play of golds that I have mentioned a lot lately. That is, mixing in lots of muted greens and purples.
When there is more surface to cover, such as this figure, I like to mix in a little orange/sienna. That is a nice contrast to some of the teal colors that I will place in areas to create more 'sparkle'. Again, contrast is not always about how light or dark a color is in relation to another, but also about its intensity and 'temperature'.
I will try to round up some older images of this figure that I painted long long ago, and see if I can create some side by side images :-)
