At long last, I've gotten back to one of the heroes for SDE! From the Super Dungeon Explore Emerald Valley Warband is the Silver Chevalier.
First Look: The first thing I had to check was whether or not that was all hair in the back, or if the figure was wearing a cape (hint: it's hair). There's not a ton of detail, but enough relief on the armor and shield to provide some variation with a wash. As with the other models in the set, I used the accompanying art as a color guide.
Painting: The dress and pennant were painted a medium blue, with silver armor, shield, and lance. The hair is a medium brown with lighter highlights; I tried to make sure this was done well since it covers so much of the figure. The ribbons in the hair are a medium red, which helps provide some contrast to the dominant blue and silver color scheme. The skin is a light-medium skin tone with a bit of rosiness added to the cheeks. Finally, the eyes were a medium blue with touches of light blue to make them pop a bit more.
Conclusion: Overall the figure wasn't as much of a challenge as I expected a character model to be, and I like how it turned out. I tried to ensure that the skin had a smooth appearance and that the eyes looked right, and I think I met both goals. The highlights on the dress also turned out nice. I was tempted to try something other than silver on the pennant, but it's clearly a metallic silver in the art.
I'm almost finished with the Emerald Coast Warband; just three Kinoshrooms and the Emerald Dragon remain!
