    Thank you. Really happy with them myself.

    One for me, one for someone else: A good friend asked me to paint his Greenskin Oni as a proxy for all the CC specialists of his YJ army (Shaolin Liang Kai, etc.). He wanted me to really put in an effort, so I did.

    Completely forgot that I also painted the second Ryuken late last year:

    I think it's noticeable that while I took my time with the lady, the guy was a speedpaint.

    A bit late to this particular party, but wanted to point out: oils should still dry more vivid than acrylics, it's really more a question of which orange you use. I use a tube of Cadmium Orange (I use the Holbein Duo Aqua one, but not saying it has to be that particular one, it's a very expensive tube), and there is simply not a single acrylic orange that can compete with it for vividness.

    Well, if you like references, here's an even more faithful one:

    [​IMG]

    The client asked me to paint her just like Celty Sturluson from the manga/anime. I tried out something new with her suit, attempting to emulate a latex effect. Let me know how you think I did.

    In the same batch as her was Takeshi "Super Saiyan" Oyama:

    To be honest if you didn't mentioned the latex effect I wouldn't have noticed it. But looking closer it's so obvious that the reflection cries latex.
    Did you considered to add a gloss varnish on it ?

    Because oil or because cadmium?

    Not even fluo?

    In this case, and if using the apply then remove technique, it seems the white underneath has been exposed, instead of left covered.

    As master Savonarola did many times. Damn, Flickr account no more, and his DeviantArt one mostly "adults only" (some Combined Army avaliable, but those had no latex at all IIRC, it was the fetish ones that had latex... and many other fetish things). If pure gloss is too much, gloss-matte mix to achieve a satin towards gloss could do too.

    Oh yeah, Savo's stuff was prime grade, but he has drifted away from infinity towards, dunno, deep in Bakunin? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I remember that guy. He used exposy resin for his latex effect though, didn't he?

    Anyway, here's even more JSA, but without latex:

    IIRC gloss varnish for latex zones and epoxy for the tanks full of liquid.

    Ah okay. I'll put some gloss varnish on her and see if that helps already.

    I'm still mostly busy with the JSA commission, so here's one more, the Daiyokai. Trying to differentiate his gradients from the others, I went for a blueish-violet/green/red tint.
