Commander Fil

Post by Odd Ball on Tue Apr 07, 2009 10:06 pm

Well, here is my commander Fil From the Clone Wars TV series episode, "The Lair Of Greivous"










I think he turned out quite good. For those of you that are wondering, I use Tamia Acrylic paint for all of my clones. I never use sharpie or decals. ( Shocked ) Please tell me what you think!

Thanks! Ya, I agree with the paint on top, but I free handed the whole thing. Smile

I think he looks great, but one thing: Isn't he orange? Or does your Camera just make it look red?

I used red paint, because to my eyes the armor looked Red, but it was so dark in Greivous' Lair, that I can't tell. Here is the reference picture I used.



Like I said, to me it looks red. (Maybe I'm color blind) Waaa!

I think it looks red too.

If you did all that by freehand then you are are an artist compared to me, because I am like a kindergardner when it comes to paint compared to you. Razz

(I was exagerating a little, but it's just that the helmet was so nicely done without destroyng the visors. WITHOUT TAPE?!! Hola Wow! )

It looks bronze/orange to me. Razz

Not bad, it's not messy, but the lines are really squiggly. I profess to know nothing about paint, but with my experience with sharpie, I'd use the smallest brush and kinda straighten everything.

With paint that's a pretty good job, although there are some good shots of him with his armor lit up.

Were I a nitpicker I'd point out the unevenness of the lines, but hey... Wink

I would say just make the lines on the helmet thinner.

It looks really good!! Nice job working on it. Smile Smile Fil has kind of light red armor. Look on clonearmycustoms to check colors. Smile

Cool, but the lines on the helmet are a bit uneven and thick. Otherwise, good job on this!

Nice job but the torso details need to look more like the reference pic. Also the lines on the head could use some work.

It is a good job but you could use a sharpie instead of a magic marker next time.

Awesome fig!!! Two critisicsms:

1.Make the lines on the helmet thinner.
2.Try and get the lines on the helmet a bit neater. I'm no painter, but since I use sharpie for most of my custom clones, I'd say use the smallest brush you can, and put tape on.

Other than that, an awesome fig!

Sorry, but to end the debate, Commander Fil, as a Senate Security Guard clone, was, like all of them, red. Fordo Yo!

It's good for using paint. I use sharpie (and some decals) for my clones because I think brushes can be inaccurate. I do like how paint gives vivid colors, so I sometimes use sharpie paint pens. Overall it's pretty good, I know how hard it is to get perfectly straight lines without using decals. Wink
