Brilliant work again!
Awesome work! I also wish the eye was fully open. In the concept notes for the Azathoth painting, Richard said this area is actually an orb swirling with cosmic energy, not an eyeball. I have considered removing this area and trying to find a really sweet marble or glass sphere to put in it's place.
I also appreciate the neutral stuff as you can paint them whatever colors you feel like. I am going to have to go back and add much more faction color to my previous paint ups, or things will get really confusing when a bunch of neutrals are on the board.
The giant cosmic energy orb makes sense... I actually tried my hand at painting something "Nebulous" like the concept art, but it didn't turn out so well, so I defaulted to a "gem effect" with a purple-ish color and no eye-ball, kinda like smooth glass. It looked dull so clean, so I experimented with painting in a reflection of the light from his lower mouth. I hope to do more light effects in later paint-ups... it's actually kind of fun, heh.
