Here are a few from the LOTRs line.

This was my first attempt at "point of source" lighting. I call it that but it probably has a different name. Gandolf was painted from the "Mines of Moria" part of the movie, this being the only actual time I can think of where he had and used the light stone on top of his staff. I based and painted it with a stone floor, merging the entire base as if a continuous part of the floor by carving cracks into the side as well as the surface. A granite look so to speak.

This is a limited edition Bilbo figure. The only way to get this is a post card inside the first boxed set. I painted him strait from the movie. In the next photo you can see he has the ring in his hand.

If you can tell, Sting has a slight blue glow with the approach of Orcs.

The Gandalf miniature actually looks more realistic than the CGI Gandalf in Moria.

They're all great, but Bilbo is particularly excellent.

In case you want it for a search term or whatever, the standard term is "Object Source Lighting" or "OSL".

Also you need to watch things like movies as reference for OSL because there are always other lights in a movie (otherwise you wouldn't see most of the characters).

Some day if I ever get my art/music studio set up the way I want, I'm taking a page (heh) from James Gurney ('s books). He likes to mock up models and colored lights for reference. Also, I love his studio:
