Finally have gotten back to painting; what a joy !!!
Felt like a major portion of my life had gone away.
Poor Alfyn has been sitting on my desk forlorn for over 30 days.
I finally said enough, and here he is finished. He is such a majestic Viking
I wanted to get him elevated as he reminded me of my beloved Fjords. Well here
he is at the pinnacle of a fjord looking at his dragon boat pulled up on the shore.
Feel free to make any comments, criticisms, they're ALL appreciated.
So here is Alfyn Crowkiller Wilding Captain as I envisioned him.
This is was my entry for the 4th quarterly Reaper Facebook contest. It was good enough for 3rd place!
There were so many well painted models, and awesome interpretations.
As I was planning it, my starting idea was copper nmm. I didn't want the typical verdigris. Then I thought a bluish or purple to counter the orange, so that got me thinking Drow with purple glazed into her shadows.
Then I took that farther to try to get OSL in her eyes, shield, and base as if she was casting 'protection from good' or something.
Sadly, the OSL was saved to the end when I ran out of time. So I tried a bright rim around those areas, then a purple glaze. It wasn't striking enough for my tastes, but ... deadlines!
So, I hope you like her.
Sorry if the photo is blurry, it's a cell phone screen grab.
I looked at this sculpt with a GREAT amount of fear and nervousness. Complicated, Multi-small parts, and just a complete
display of "I will make you jump through hoops". It lived up to its threat. Gluing was tedious, and physically painful. Sharp !
There is nothing really intuitive on this piece, even the head goes on crooked !!
You have to do a difficult mini in order to grow, and this one will provide ample opportunity! ROFL.
She is fun, Challenging, and color wise, a field of flowers waiting to be painted.
Hope you enjoy.
Give me a comment about what you think please.
All are appreciated.
So here is the Page of Wands from Dark Sword Mini's, I have adored painting her, and have spent 11 days completing her.
Incredible, that's the only way I can describe the experience of Painting this Miniature.
Tom Meier is know for his skill, but he has this ability to put so much detail into the smallest of Mini's.
This is NO exception. Loved working on this mini (look out for the antlers..."SHARP".
The Mini is also very small.
I have experimented all over the place on this mini. Colors were the basic Wash/primer/than Brown Liner.
I then started mixing Nightmare black (which is really blue) and put on about seven coats, mixed vampire whites into pallet,
Cavalry reds, washed, and anything I could mix in there. I had my trusty color wheel out, and was just playing.
Eventually he said "I'm done/cooked/finished. So here he is. I even used clear colors in this paint trip.
Your comments are solicited, and very appreciated.
Do let me know what you think.
Here are some photos: I Forgot to add the obligatory quarter when I paint anything by Tom Meier;
gives you an idea how small he is !
I wanted to paint Mary for my oldest stepdaughter, she is into synchronised swimming and I believe part fish.
Since she is also a bit of a scrooge I added a bit of treasure.
Off to the start,
Sculpted a rock with millyput.
There will be more to follow.
