This time 2 same models but painted differently. Sorceress is the cheapest order wizard but she is not that bad at all. The problem was that I couldn't deicide my self how to paint her. Pale or with little more colour so I have painted 2 of them but still I can't decide which one I like more.

Two beta photos. On made with my cellphone. Maybe I will change them later because battery went off in my camera.

the paler one has a nicer contrast with her clothes
would make her slightly less blue then in the top photo, she looks great in the bottom one
i would choose the one on the right, if you prefer the darker skin tone try silver and maybe a slightly brighter blue to get a similar contrast
maybe give the pale one some purple in her eyes or some eyeliner or something to bring them out

hehehehe. "some purple in her eyes"? "some eyeliner"? You are talking like to someone who actually can paint. Such details like eyes are extremely difficult to paint for me. People often thinks that I'm some artist of some extraordinary skills. I'm not. I'm mediocre craftsman at best. Gab between me and most of the painters are really not that big. I am confident that if I would show someone how to paint after 2-3 miniatures he would painted just like me. It really isn't as hard as people think.

Battery charged but "Smurfette" is still purple...

if you can get her eye to be actually white, just taking an ink pen 0.01 or 0.02 (go to an art store they should have those for architects, or at least people studying for architects not like any actual architect still hand draws) and draw with that along the bottom edge of her eye, careful its sharp, maybe a little flourish at the edge if you are confident, doing it with a brush is madness
it would really make them pop
the purple in the eye, that is more difficult, but with some ink and a brush with a single hair, just giving it a little tap with a steady hand
but i admit that one is hard

careful only do this if you are really happy with how you did the whites, this will draw attention to the eyes giving the model a lot of character, but if the whites arnt done properly it will also draw attention to the flaws

I would say find a balanced mix between the two. One looks a bit like a more tanned Conan Exiles sorcerer, the other is almost a night elf.

I am assuming you are going for a Dark Elf sorceress.

My second Lord Castellan I have painted, this time in Hallowed Knights colour skim and I had exchange a few bits with model of Lord Veritant. I really love this model, he is pretty good on the table too. For his price he is a good fighter, he has good->very good survivability and good support too his stormcast friends. 2 photos because I can't decide with one is better.

Very nice model but I hate her boots, not too much problematic to paint. I haven't painted bolter red because in my humble opinion GW is quite weird about those colourful weapons, red military guns? Yeah right.
