I did not use any metallic colours and tried to give them a more organic feel. The drives of all the other races were done in blue, for the Planta I used

  • 70.957 Flat Red
  • 70.911 Light Orange

something which in my mind looks more like natural fire than artificial drives.

Everthing I would have painted as glass on other ships I painted as an eye. In hindsight, the pupil should have been much brighter...

To add further to the organic look, I painted some of the potrusions like horn:

  • 70.941 Burnt Umber
  • 70.977 Desert Yellow
  • 70.847 Iraqi Sand
