Phantom 7 WIP #1

Rumours I can't stick with one project at a time are clearly accurate.

This awesome bust from the excellent Robot Rocket Miniatures called out to me, and since attending Bohun's workshop on true metallic metals, it felt a natural piece to try out what I'd learned. First up is getting the darkest metal down.

Working up to the brightest point for something crisp and futuristic. Think I lost more of the darkness than I wanted, so will come back to that. But it's looking good ...

Here's the first pass of the underglow to contrast against the blues of the metal. Just painting the underside in a super dark colour wouldn't have been any fun, this feels far more fun.
