I have seen many topics similar to thos one, getting ideas for spring theme colors. Sorry for that, but I think that´s just a question that will always come up again and again^^
I´m the proud owner of my first wood elves now, a glade guard regiment. But I´m kind of stumped with the color scheme.
As there are already many many autumn elves, I wanted to go for spring - but not like in the book! Too much green, the spring is much more colorful, everything begins to blossom and is fresh and beautiful.
Also, I imagine my army to be guards of honor for Ariel on her way to the spring ceremony, which is a huge festival for the wood elves I think.
So, I want to go for light yellowish green sprinkled with spring colors like yellow, pink, white and light blue.
I made some sketches for that (Got the idea from someone else from asrai, while searching for color schemes)
The left one was my first try, but I think it´s too summery... Though I really like the pattern on the cloak. The right one is more springish, but I´m not happy with the leather parts...
What do you think? any suggestions on the colors (especially on leather)?
