Hellcannon - Still WIP

Another WIP picture of the Hellcannon. I've gotten the wheels on but there's still a fair bit to do yet and I still have to make the base for it (and I haven't yet decided what I'm going to do for that!).
Sadly, the picture isn't brilliant as it's rather dull day here and I've taken about 15 pics and this was the only one that came out vaguely ok and this is far, far from perfect.
To keep with the organic theme I've painted all of the tubing to be like arteries and brought fleshy colours in where I can, also have lots of gold to tie in the metallics with the rest of my army. I'm quite pleased with how its progressing and I'm still on target for the first ToEMP deadline (just!).
Anyway, I'd really love some feedback, critique, suggestions etc.

Its looking good so far! I like the variety of color you are using and yet tying it all together.
As for the pictures, try using Gimp (open source version of Photoshop). It has an auto white balance that usually is all that is needed to bring the colors back to their sharpness. For more fine tuning try adjusting the "levels" - check out this tutorial

Nice job, keep up the good work? I like the wheels especially, the bone/gold plays off each other nicely.

For a base, I glued 4 50mm Monster bases together and filled the gaps in with super glue. While mine is not painted, here is a pic of it.

I hope it helps and I look forward to keeping tabs on your progress as TOEMP continues.
