Today is grey. Painting Six and a Raider from BSG in a grey ship just seemed appropriate. I’m now down to my last canvas and in dire need of better detail brushes. I spent a long time trying to get the cold metallic-y feel and lighting down and contrasting with Six’s cold-yet-hott-(and kinda confusing) demeanor. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
What I’ve learned about the Sixes from BSG is that they use everything to their advantage – they come off as cold towards humans (except maybe Baltar) but they care very very deeply and will do everything in their power to make the world right (as they see it).
