Elite's Celt - finished

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Brad S, Jan 26, 2005.

    Hi all!

    This was a wonderful figure to finish. Everything just seem to flow correctly. My only gripe was that one of the eyes was a bad cast or something as it was pretty much non-existent. I was going to do and sbs on this so I could receive input from all of you, but I'm bad at taking in progress shots. Hope you all enjoy and as always, any critique is pleasantly welcomed.

    Hey Brad, nice work. I have this figure and it is definitely a figure worth painting.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hello Brad, nice work on this little celt...I like the flesh tones and the sheild is nicely painted too...looks like you solved the problem with the eye as the problem doesn't seem to show in the pictures....well done.

    Hello Brad,

    You did a lovely job on this celt. I like the flesh tones. You deal well with a eye who is not sculpted. Congratulations.

    I do a sbs with a celtic chief here on the Planet. I'am gonno to paint the hair and beard and wonder iff you could explain to me how you did the blond hair.
    I hope you paint in oils.
    So if anyone read this who is painting with oils, please feel free to post the painting of blond hairs also here.

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    Roy - the eye only showed up somewhat in one of the pics I took, but I didn't post that one (of course). It was also my 2nd time painting a shield. If you look closely you can see the bruch strokes. I will try to improve on another one.

    Marc - I only paint in acrylics. But here is what I did. Maybe you can adapt it somehow. I based the whole hair in Naples yellow. Then I used a wash of a couple different darker tones of that with some brown. Then I went back and lightly painted the highlights with naples yellow again. Nothing fancy. I'm sure there is a lot of better techniques than that.

    Beautiful work Brad. This is one of my favorite Celt figures and you have done a superb job with him. Hope to see it in Tulsa this year.

    Looks really nice Brad. The fleshtones and blonde hair especially.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you Guy & Keith for your kind responses.

    Guy - if you happen to read this again, it was your same celt that I saw in Tulsa last year that inspired me to paint this one. I just didn't get brave and paint stripes or some type of pattern on his pants.

    Thanks Brad...........regardless of the stripes.......you have done a beautiful job with yours. I did mine in a vignette with a Time Machine Celt and would like to do another Elite Celt by itself. so many figures........so little time
