My first go at OSL.
I looked at a few tutorials, and it seems to be a good idea to paint up the mini as usual first.
So here he is.
The fireball in his left hand is homemade from a small more or less round piece of metal, a short piece of wire, and some sculping-paste (about the same thickness as tooth-paste).
As you maybe have guessed, the light is going to come from the fireball, and shine onto his arm and head .. and lets see what else it will hit!?
Any last advice before I might ruin my paintjob? (I'm a bit nervous about this)
This is the 3rd mini I have ever painted. It is from the Learn To Paint Kit: Layer Up! I am pleased with how it came out, though once again I think the pictures do not do it justice. I followed the directions in almost all regards, however I used a flesh wash instead of what the booklet called for, and I tried out a Gemstone colour from GW on the gemstone. The number one thing I learned from this kit was glazing. WOW! Its so simple but it helped smooth the transitions between highlights so well that I will never not glaze again. Please let me know what you all think! I really want critiques too! Help me get better at this hobby that I love so much!
So.... have you ever started something you thought looked cool as hell... then way into it you just go "$&@% balls!!!"? Kinda what i'm feelin for this piece. Its my third and for a d&d campaign. its basically supposed to be a dark elf sorcerrer but since my elf wizard mini I had on hand at the time was ... well defective on arrival. I figured it was close enough and i'd swap him in (hence my attempt at a fire sword to give any indication of the fire heavy wizard i actually am playing). I primed in dark grey which is what i had at the time. (wish i'd waited for black for this color scheme) found out gun metal sucks on grey... first "meh". Wanted the red to be a bit more catchy so mixed it with metallic silver....wasnt using wet palette at begining so the paint frequently dried and subsequent batches werent always same...so now I almost get the feel this guys going glam..... second "Meh". Other player uses an elf but a ranger, I wanted this guy a paler tone but it just seems to close to the hair I'd done.... third "MEH". At this point i dont think I even like the model really. Think I was rushing to make the weekend dead line to have the three minis done with this being the last one.... any thoughts to possibly save this one from the green bath of shame? (at this point I'd rather play one of my spiders)
