Duke Colours

Colours pretty much straight form the model sheet, thoughts on a postcard please. Particularly is he wearing gloves or no?


  1. Definately with the gloves, they make him that little bit smarmy - and you can't have too much smarm.

  2. Yeah, I like the white gloves. Only the elite can wear white gloves because they've no intention of doing any kind of labour. Them and Mickey mouse, work-shy rodent that he is.

  3. I don't mind him without gloves, as if he has them ready and waiting at all times in his pocket to slap someone across the face for duel-based goodness. I think a little notch on the back of the hand, stitching somewhere or suggestion of a cuff might sell the gloves idea a little better if you're going with them. It could be seen as just an albino hand at the moment.

  4. Gloves for sure! Thats how I imagined it when I saw the line test.. and will add to the smarminess :)

  5. I agree with Paul on the 'albino hand' - definitely needs some detail. Or maybe make them a more luxurious, creamy colour? Just some stripe detail on the back of the hand, like this,315&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=528&oei=JgpLTZDeEouYhQfzwKSwDg&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=66&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:0&tx=34&ty=30&biw=1920&bih=1075 could make the difference.
