It looks like this and another post of mine (plus a third that I didn't finish posting) were all assigned the same post ID (or some similar identifying value) when I duplicated the new thread page last night. It looks as though everything got pretty mangled, and the only way I know of off the top of my head to fix this is to start a new post. That thread is here:

He looks great. I love the sculpt on this figure, and you've done an admirable job of painting him and all his various accoutrements.

Even though I didn't get to spend as much time on him as I wanted, the Friar is probably one of the better things I've painted. Even though I totally phoned it in on his shoes at 2 in the morning the morning we were leaving for Reapercon! When I went looking for the sculptor as I was posting this, I found some pre-existing paint jobs. I swear I was not trying to copy Dustin Wagster's scheme! He and Jen both blow me out of the water, anyway, but it's good to see that my color choices weren't totally crazy.


Also, I really didn't notice that his poor bald head was messing with my camera until it was too late. I did salvage a shot without front lighting though.








I'm pretty happy with how he turned out--I used him as an excuse to experiment with glazes, so all of those browns (and the green) started out the same color and I shifted them around with glazes. It mostly worked, although that short cloak thing of his had too many angles and I couldn't get the glaze not to be mottled and inconsistent.


Things I know I could improve on with him:

  • I couldn't figure out a good skin shade for him. The fair skin triad, shortcut though it may be, is waaaaay too low on contrast! I played around with some options here and nothing quite worked out.
  • I couldn't quite get that face to look right. The lips gave me trouble.
  • ...in part, because I forgot to line the eyes. Mental note for next time...
  • The green cloak, as mentioned
  • I didn't realize the spiky bit on his club was probably not supposed to be there until after I'd already painted it. Oh well!
  • I did some rudimentary wood grain on the haft of the mace but the contrast was too low.
  • I need to do a better job blending in the shades. A lot of those transitions are really abrupt.
  • I phoned it in on the shoes.
  • Base is the standard base that comes with the guy.

Other C&C welcome!


Note: this is a repost! It looks like three posts, two of which I finished writing, all ended up with the same post ID, which caused all sorts of mayhem. Attachments only worked on one of these posts at a time and it looks like all of the tags got thrown together. This should fix the problem...

      I think this is my favorite sculpt (at least top 5). I’ve had it for quite some time now but for whatever reason it never got to the front of the line. Recently I thought “what the hell” and put him into the paint queue. 
      I have been struggling for quite some time with trying OSL. Every attempt ended with me calling it quits and discarding that element from the paint scheme. This is the second one that I decided to keep (the first one is the two skulls from the bones cultist circle). I’m really happy with the overall result.

      Some Stone Golems (SKU 77171) to challenge my players with in some future game session.

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
      Hope you like what you see...

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!
