Pochi

Arathanel, Elf Ranger - Bones (Photo Heavy)

Recommended Posts

I like the color scheme, and at least to me, the skin is a good tone for a Drow. I love it when people give some background to their minis, it's always funnier, more interesting. So good detail with the scarf ^^ Great job!

I like it. I like the purple on his quiver too. It stands out as unique. As if it has a story all it's own. 

 

The copper color needs a bit of a bump up in my opinion. Maybe wash it down then use the same color to hit the mids and a brief peak of white to hit the highlights. 

 

Over all I really like it. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks all! I did like his Drowiness (haha). I don't know, for some reason he wasn't as fun for me to paint as the others so I rushed through. I did consider letting him take a dip in Simple Green but decided he was fine for gaming and he was my practice for Drow skin so he served his purpose.

Like him or not, I think you did a very good job on him. I especially like the bit of backstory you created with the scarf.:winkthumbs:

Just saw this - am planning on my Arathanel being a drow also (the whole party is going to be a bunch of evil's as Navatharr is a Gold in my DDS2) and didn't realize you had gone this route as well :)  I had even envisioned his bow done in bone shards like you did.. lol

 

He looks awesome!

Great minds, huh? Haha! Yes, I pictured the bow as bone and antler. It didn't really seem to be wooden to me so I think the bone colors work. Can't wait to see what you do with your adventurers!

      So I'm going to be repainting some D&D Minis for the DDM Guild's Prize support at GenCon 2018. Just really got started last night, but progress is progress. Sorry about the crappy phone picture.
       

       
      So, I'm gonna be keeping track of my progress here. My deadline is the first full weekend of July, the 8th or so. As I'll need to mail them to someone who is actually attending:(

      Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with):
       

       

       
      He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. 
       
      His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf.
       
      Also, this:

       
      Look at at that eye! It’s a halfway decent eye (even if it isn’t quite human)! Calling the whole thing a win on that basis. C&C welcome.
