Pegasus Project - Templar's shield, update

I've been working on the Templar's shield yesterday. 
Still lots to do, but I think it's going into the right direction.


At this point I'm really happy with the way the front of the shield is turning out. I'm not an expert on randomness. I find it tricky to do random stains and blemishes and avoid creating patterns. But I guess after adding some blood it should look good.

And here are few close-ups, to show you the texture of dirt and damage on the shield's front, and wood grain at the back.


I know you can see all the little imperfections (not so little too;p), but please bare in mind, that these are some extreme close-ups.  The shield is more or less 6,5 cm long, so most of the flaws will disappear, while looking at the miniature as a whole.

But if you have any ideas how I could improve the shield, please do not hesitate. All criticism and comments will be highly appreciated. I want this piece to be my best:)


cheers

  8. The dirt is mostly there, I might add some more later, depends how the rest of the mini gonna look like. And I'm planing to do the blood on the whole mini at the same time. It should give me more control over the final efect.
