Well guys, it's still a WIP. The dimensional tear is casting a yellow tint on things, that might explain the color choice. So far it's looking great Lith, can't wait to see the finished product.

Kudos for being able to handle Skully's armor in this picture.  :badbone: Divulge your secrets!!!

Edit: The Beherit Sword looks fantastic btw.

Noooo! Why's my Skull Knight all green? :judo:

Hahaha, poor Aaz. :ganishka: I think it looks great, Lith. I can't wait to see the finished product!

He must have ran into slimer (ghostbusters) in that dimension he cut. Just kidding Aaz.


Anyways, good job  Lith! As the others said, waiting for the final result. :guts:

Well I'm not saying it looks bad, just that I don't like the green color for SK's armor too much. The point of showing a WIP is to get feedback, right?

Good thing you told me, I thought you were serious. Just kidding.

No worries, I knew you weren't saying it looked bad or anything. Sorry if my comment seemed to imply differently.

Hehehe, don't worry Aaz, I'm trying out new photoshop layouts that let me change the color schemes much more easily without losing quality.  This way I can start out with high contrast overdone colors (so I can really see what I'm doing) and then ramp them back once the first draft is done. 

But yeah, this draft is the glow in the dark skull knight action figure.   :badbone:

Looks good so far, I think it'd be great if there was some sheen on Ganishka from the light Griffith seems to be emanating in these shots though. Something similar to how Ganishka's eyes have a sheen around them.

I like the one with Griff. His armor looks pretty the way you did it. I didn't even notice Rakshas on Zodd's wing when I read the last episode. Just caught it on your pic though.

Sehr schön.
Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night wind
And play by day in the catacombs
I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon
Yet in my new wildness and freedom I welcome the bitterness of alienage
For I know always that I am an outsider...an outsider...stranger in this century...for a time
A stranger among those who are still...men

Hehe, I was trying to copy Proj!

some sheen on Ganishka from the light Griffith seems to be emanating

Ooh that's a good idea.  I'll try it out.

How about some SK action now? :SK:

This is almost overwhelming in its badassery. Amazing job Lith, I think I'll have to follow Oburi's lead and make it my new wallpaper. :badbone:

Your work is awesome, but it needs color garmony.
Sky, SK, Femto, Zodd and Ganishka looks like them were taken from different pictures, and stuck together.
