    I think you should change the legs, or at least the feet. A Saurus's feet have three toes and are clawed, and the humanlike, five toed feet look off.

    I think they look fine, I dig the bulkier legs with the normal non digitigrade knees. If it really bothers you, you could always green stuff some talons for him. I doubt anyone's gonna be standing there counting his toes while they're supposed to be rolling dice and moving little men around, and if they do notice just say an ape or something fell in the spawning pool when it was time for these guys to be born and tell them to stop worrying how many toes your model has when they could be rolling dice and moving little dudes instead

    I agree with @tom ndege. The Saurus needs a loincloth.

    The pants seem to have been sculpted as slim-fit :joyful:, so I think that if you wanted to remove them it wouldn't be too hard by sanding and adding a bit of green stuff here and there.

    The scales are looking good, but don't be afraid to go off pattern, you don't want them too perfect.

    It probably could work, you would just need to give it paws and change the head and tail.

    That's a tough one. I've used a grey + black mix for highlights in the past. I'm not a great painter though, so there may exist a much better method/colour.


    Your model is looking great so far!

    Using citadel paints? Prime Chaos Black > Abaddon Black > Eshin Gray > Dawnstone

    Basically prime black, then paint black, then add a broad-ish dark gray highlight, and finally add a thinner mid gray highlight.

    Applying the dark gray (Eshin for Citadel) in fairly thin, semi-transparent layers diluted with glaze medium (like Lahmian Medium) will make it easier to control how big that broad highlight is and will also help you blend it into the black. You can (don't have to) do the same with the final, brightest edge highlight on larger areas--though I doubt it'd make a difference on small, semi-isolated bits like some scales, carvings, or craggy surfaces.

    And it might seem weird, but you want to paint over the black primer with black paint because they have different finishes and you'll get an uneven look if you just use the primer as a base and then clean up mistakes using regular black paint.

    For painting fur the fastest and pretty good-looking is drybrushing. I you want a "cleaner" look to the model though, then go for edge highlighting :)
