Following the review of the Occulites, here are the minis after being painted.
Here is the brave leader, with faithful Luftle companion.
It wasn't easy coming up with a color scheme, since I quite liked the official color scheme choice that Darwin games went with. If I hadn't seen it (Brown bodies and dark green skin, pale yellow eyes) I'd probably have done the same. But since I had seen it, I wanted to challenge myself to come up with something different.
What I aimed for was a red-brown fur body. I used the look of powdery chocolate truffles for inspiration.
Skin I went for a drab blue,with bright pinkish for eye & under neck-belly skin for bright accent.
The Luftles kept the same pattern of coloration, but going into dried-orange for fur and a brighter jade skin.
I still may go back and tip the ends of these leaves in yellow.

They were really great fun to paint!
Speaking of eyes, showing why one is better than many...
