Blue Wizard

He looks awesome! I really like the cloudy aspect of the blue highlights on its clothes. The color of the feather is adding a nice contrasting touch.

Nicely done! I like how vivid the blue is, and the green feather really pops :)

 

Huzzah!

The blue robes are amazing, the feather is indeed a great contrast!

 

But you also painted all those little books, the candle superb!

Oh my word! I cant take my eyes off the robes! How did you get that velvety look?! The contrast of the feather and the oldness of the books.. Such attention to detail is rare. Awesome mini, very well done!

It's just a couple of coats of a vallejo blue wash over a cerulean blue base coat. I kind of "puddled" the wash on, rather than brushing it out smoothly, so that it gave the kind of mottled effect. Then I reinforced various lines and creases with dark blue ink. Easy-peasy.

It doesn't always have to be difficult, but the result is stunning!

So thx for sharing!

Easy-peasy indeed ^_^ Thanks for sharing.. It does sound easy but almost everything is "easy" to a master, no? :)

      This was my favorite project of 2017 due to how much I pushed my abilities in creating it. It was my first major conversion of this sort, first time doing texture, first major use of OSL, and first Sci Fi base built fully from scratch. So lots of firsts with this one. Those of you who followed my WIP thread know what I went through with this one;  the OSL dilemma, redoing the base, and sculpting new hands at the last minute. In all I am proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and I cannot give enough thanks to those who posted in the WIP thread, your encouragement gave me the push that I needed.
       
      So this conversion is the result of critique I received at ReaperCon 2016 regarding my Open entry, it was to up the difficulty of my conversions. When I got home I went through the Reaper web store and found minis that I call "blank slates", ones that I felt would be a good base for multiple conversions. I found a few that sparked an idea but the one that I got stuck on was Anirion and how he would make the perfect Jedi. So he was the project I choose for my ReaperCon 2017 Open entry but I made myself focus on having fun with it and not worrying about it being perfect. When I was finished, I was extremely happy with the results but I knew that there were somethings that could be better. Knowing that, I was extremely surprised to find that I got a gold medal in Open and blown away when it was announced that I got the Open Silver Sophie. So again thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread.
       
      WIP thread: Wizard of a Different Sort: Anirion Conversion
       
      Conversion breakdown:
      -Reshaped hood and sleeves
      -Smoothed out cloak to remove border
      -Removed staff and bag?
      -Repositioned arms 
      -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece
      -Added some strands of hair
      -Resculpted hands

      Who doesn't love Halflings in Mittens?

      Wait, that's not the name of the set?  Why not?

      Alright, it turns out they're actually "The Winter Adventurers" from a recent Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter.  As always, Midlam delivers nice old-school designs with newer sculpting methods and details.  I think quite highly of the company.

      This was my second diorama for ReaperCon 2017 and was the one picked for judging. The idea for it actually began at last year's ReaperCon and was originally going to be the wizard catching the barbarian mousling breaking in. Over the year it evolved into a large scene than originally planned and I swapped out the barbarian for the two thieves/rogues. It ended up getting a gold medal and Mousling Honorable Mention.
       
      Any feedback would be appreciated.
       
      Here is the WIP thread: Stop Thief!
       
      Thank you to everyone who gave me feedback while creating this diorama.

      Painted yesterday with LTPK: Layer Up bought with Xmas monies. Followed directions from booklet with the exception of the shirt sleeves. The guide has red sleeves. I went with Heather Blue, and shaded with a wash of 1p Dark Highlights/1p Ebony Flesh/5p water. Layering is a tough skill for me. Several adjustments of shade and base back and forth. I skipped the lining; too cartoony for me. Highlights came easier. (Also bought MSP Starter Set) Tried to shadow Anirion's face on the left more as it is deeper in his cowl. Not the effect I was looking for, but it's time to move on to another mini.
       

       
      Primer: None
      Paints: Reaper LTPK paints
      Finish: Testor's Dullcoat
       
      As per Reaper's suggestion: I did not primer the mini, but I will in the future. I did wash it thoroughly with a toothbrush in hot soapy water. If you look at the right bottom hem of the cloak on the pic of the back you can see a chip out of the  paint. That was the fourth such chip I had to retouch. Mini was never dropped or scraped. The paints simple didn't bond well. (All Reaper paints)

      So I finished this one a while ago, which was part of a three -piece Partha set that was based on a painting of Larry Elmore, Bones of the Past.  I already finished the two ladies in the painting, so this was the last one.  I tried to keep him relatively faithful to the original painting as far as the color scheme, but there are always going to be a few slight differences.
       
      Here then is the painting this one came from:

       
      and the two links to the other figures:
       
       
      So all three of them are finished, let's see what I can work on next!
