Heh well, we spent a good amount of time last night exchanging refs and WIPs in order to get the base colors right. Been fooling around in order to find a good eye and hair combination too lol.
Finished the lighting effects not too long ago this morning~
Super overuse of dramatic lighting, blues and golds~
and historically accurate good job
*Ghosts (Духи/Doukhi): Slang of the Soviet/Russian Army for any mujahedeen fighters in Afgahnistan and in the modern day Chechnya.
Very neat work.
I ften go with white for lightning since pure daylight at noon is I believe white in nature. However as the day progreses, it's starts to get white-yellowish, then to orange and almost reaching the point in which it looks red at dawn or evening.
But hey, you can use blue colors to generate an extra lightning effect in dark enviroments in which theres no active light source. Thing to try perhaps?
I'll leave that to you.
Keep up the good work.
Cedits to Yair for coming up with the name~
