Ah it looks much better now. I was actually debating on whether i should gloss up mine on the sails since i am nearly done with it. Sadly I realised that my biggest weakness is the material and size used for Lucio not being very good at painting easily. The sails in particular are very hard with how ridgity they are.
Awesome work the darker green gives the model more depth
Thank you.
I didn't have the courage to deviate too much from the original paint scheme.
Actually, I was not a fan on the gloss finish on the sails, that's why I went with a flat finish.

The rest are done as well.

First up is Wilson.
No more demon eyes.


Added some brown around the eyes to tone down the black as well.

Lucas is done as well.


He is more orangey now.
And darker wash on his belly.


Repainted his eyes, so that they are slightly larger and more defined.
The original eye color was too similar to the orange used on his head, making them blend in with the rest of the colors.
The orange on the head is given a dark wash and flat finish.
Crests on the head got some yellow highlighting as well.

Here's how the 3 look together now.


And here's a metaphor of me walking away from painting for now.

I will probably work on the bases next time around.

Calculated but very good. How did you do the eyes? I have trouble doing them to the point where I simply refuse to do them if they are already painted.

Thank you.
I normally start off by painting the base color of the eye.
No worries if the paint goes over the edges, I will simply touch up with the required color.
The iris and pupil are painted on using a toothpick.
And finally, a touch of gloss clear coat.

Wilson definitely looks better with some reasonable peepers. I like the support twigs, too :)
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

Thanks.
Without drilling into the legs to add a metal support, the 'walking sticks' are my best solution.

Good job on those. Did you make the eyes on Luca bigger?

For some reason, they did not paint the eyes fully, at least not til the edges of the sculpt.
I just painted it in.
The yellow does make it stand out more too.
