So here is the third finished elf from Chris Fitzpatrick, a Sea Elf. I tried to keep him with a limited color pallete, hopefully hitting oceany aquatic colors, having used a lot of the "sea" colors from Reaper's line of paint. The staff of his spear is actually started out as a creamy ivory, but then I did try washes of blues, greens, purples and greys to get it more oceanesque.

Anyhoos, hopefully you enjoy!

I love the muted look and the pale/greenish skin.

I really like this, very different. Not sure I'm sold on the skin and armor being so close in color, but I do like it a lot!

I used different base colors, the skin was a leather white and the armor started out as rainy grey, but I did then afterwards incorporate a lot of the same colors when I did my washes. It certainly is true there isn't much contrast but I tried to keep the whole miniature in the same general palette for kind of that aquatic look. Now with the drow that I'm doing I'm having the opposite trouble, trying to give him different tones to not make him all black, but still keep him somewhere in a sinister type of feeling. Not sure how well I'm succeeding will that.

I totally understand both of those. Very frustrating at time, for certain. I have some "dark elves" planned for a future project. Will be an interesting comparison to your traditional take on the Drow!

That's always hard for me, when I just can't get something to look like the way I want.
