Golden Energyyy - Kingdom Death Watcher with LEDs

It's pretty unusual that I'm painting someone else's conversions, and this actually marks the first time I've painted with LEDs.

I tried going with a slightly golden but essentially straight yellow, a real pain to paint since yellow paints tend to be extremely thin (unless they're, you know, poisonous).

I chose the yellow because it's rather unnatural in comparison with a more standard orange lantern light, and I thought it would go interestingly with the red and get some interesting lighting on his scarf and shoulder in particular.

With all that activity, I stuck with an understated blue-grey for the cloak, so it wouldn't be overly busy.
