Here is my entry for 2015's P3 Grandmasters (the Privateer Press painting competition held each year).

Overall, I was rather pleased with how she turned out. I felt that the green added something different that the character wouldn't have if she were painted any other way.

She nearly wasn't completed in time for Gencon. I had actually planned ahead quite well, and would have had her finished handily, except that I got sick enough to stop working on her for almost six weeks in a row (just one minor sickness followed by another).

In the end, I'm very glad I stuck with her, and I'm quite pleased with how she turned out. She received a gold.

For those who care to vote, I've posted her up to CMON.

Great job!

But then, I've never seen any paint job from you I didn't like.

Remember your High Elves?

I'm still trying hard to copy this color scheme!
And fail badly every time... :(

Thanks.

I really want to find an old Nagash sometime and see if I can make that disaster of a sculpt look good.

Oh, and the wood elves color scheme is as follows- mostly P3 colors:

Green starts as traitor green, shade with Sanguine base, and highlight with frostbite. The red shading increases the contrast without going dull, and the blue highlight is a nice go-to for areas that you don't want jumping out too much.

Brown starts at Umbral Umber, then layers up first to Bloodstone, and last to Rucksack tan (I might have added a little frostbite here as well- it would help to unify the piece).

"White" areas are based in Cryx Bane highlight, and layered up to Frostbite- nothing higher.

Does that help?

It sure would if my brush-skills weren't that bad! :orc:
Unfortunately, I had some misfortune and now I don't have time to paint.
But I noted that down and I sure will find matching Vallejo colors, because I use those.

Really, never seen any High Elves I liked that much.
