WIP Lady Cassandra by Ritual Casting

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Klaus not Santa, Sep 12, 2021.

  1. While working on my own digital sculpts I also purchase from/support some Patreon artists.

    One of these was a 1/10 digital print file for "Lady Cassandra" from Ritual Casting

    When prepping the files for my printer I made a few errors, so the first print wasn't good - but on the other hand I was able to do a quick color blocking

    Except for the green pants I kept the colors and painted her in the base colors

    To ease the process I magnetized her in sections

    Once happy with the base colors I arranged some photos of the light setting I had in mind

    And began to apply the light effects

    As I want to focus the light situation on her face - despite the many distracting golden ornaments to come, I kept the face rather light colored

    Here is most of the light situation established

    Since I wasn't really sure about the distracting effect of the golden ornaments, I started with the shoulder armor and lower arm

    And on Thursday (while attending a paint weekend meeting) I started with the main chest armor

    I slowly worked my way down the chest - observing the focal point the distracting effects
    This is as far as I got

    I know there are some areas that are not quite right and need some adjustments.
    But in general I think these are all the golden ornaments I'm going to do, and now rather work on fixing the errors, clearing up the color situation - maybe adding some more light to her face and cleanup.
    One idea is to also add a freehand to her rather large cloak - but that again would be another distracting factor, so I'm really unsure.

    What do you think? Any recommendations? Major flaws? Thanks

    Being an old school modeler this is really interesting to follow and very thought provoking regarding how we may be offered figures in the future, will we all have a 3D printer on the work bench and download the figure files allowing us to run off additional figures or spare parts (a recasters dream), never the less your kit looks amazing and the painting is really taking shape, looking forward to seeing this progress further.

    Love it. The harmony of colours work well together and make the face the first focal point, which I assume was your goal.
    Well done.

    to me it looks like a really fine start, it goes well together !
    IF i may : instead of adding lights to her face i would add more shadows to it to define it better.

    great start anyway !

    All credit to you Klaus , interested in what your using for the golds ....If I may perhaps a wash and the relook at the highs

    Agre with Franck ref flesh , my thoughts ref cloak is to have nothing more than a edging design if that ...it might distract from the gold detailing as you said

    Happy benchtime
