      Looks sort of like a Tengu to me. This was part of the first batch of minis I had purchased a few years back. Re-discovered him inside my box of models to eventually get to...and finally got to the tengu.

      Here is my painted rendition of the tengu wizard -- the last of the 3 tengu figures that I sculpted for Reaper.
      (The other 2 figures are the rogue(ninja) and the warrior(samurai).  Click those links for my Show-Off threads.)
      My idea when I designed the figure was "Since crows like to collect shiny stuff, maybe a tengu wizard can work magic using shiny stuff."  Hence, the preponderance of jewelry -- rings, a bracelet, an anklet, and a big octagonal pectoral.  I sculpted the clothing smooth and simple so the painter could add freehand and shininess.
      Someone here on the Reaper Forum (sorry, I forget who) suggested that male and female tengus probably look the same to a casual viewer ... so although I hadn't thought of the wizard as female before, now she is!
      The colors of this zany old bird's feathers and eyes are not as bright as those of the other 2.  Her left eye is clouded over.
       

       
      And here's a group shot:
       

       
       
      I have a few more photos to share, but I won't make you click through to a separate WIP thread.
       
      Before I started painting the figure, I didn't know what colors I would use, whether to harmonize with the cool colors of the other two tengus, or use more contrasting colors
      After applying a coat of black brush-on primer, I painted a careful monochrome value study, using Brown Liner as "black", plus the Shadowed Stone - Stone Grey - Weathered Stone triad.
      I spent about 3 hours on it.
      I forgot to photograph the result, but it was something like this.  (This is a full-color work-in-progress photo that I converted to grayscale electronically.)
       

       
      To get inspiration for the colors, I looked through a few Spectrum art collections on my bookshelf, and chose a painting that was mostly rosy purple and salmon-pink, with some accents of blue, green, and red.
      After about 5 hours of painting colors over the grayscale study, this is how the figure looked (with a blue paper background instead of the gray that I used in the photos at the top of this post):
       

       
      I paused here so I could do some electronic "painting" for the freehand, and see whether the pants would look better green.
       

       
      Then I spent about 4 hours painting the freehand, glazing, texturing, and touchups. 
      One more hour to make the base, and an hour to paint it.
       
      Enjoy!

      First Post! Hard to see in the pictures but his eyes and beak are done in a shiny varnish. 
       
      Im pretty proud of him and might base him at some point. 
       
      Any Critique is welcome!

      Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs
       
       

       
      Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human.
      Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers...
      So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight.
       
      After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean.
       
      I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know!
      cheers
      Michael
