I hate escort missions! ReaperCon diorama

11 posts in this topic

I've started working in earnest on my diorama entry for ReaperCon... Nothing like waiting till the last minute...

First I figured out placement, then carved out the wall.

And now I'm working on actually painting it up.

I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull off the OSL effect or not.

They may suck, but I think they're probably the second most common adventure hook after Random Person in Tavern.

Okay, so 2 weeks ago, this is what the dragonborn sorceress looked like:

And this is tonight's progress:

Not sure how effectively I'm pulling off the OSL effect, but I'm liking how she's looking. 

 

Comments & Criticism more than welcome!!

OSL placement looks nice, I think. The fire of the torch should probably brighten a few notches, though...it's of pretty similar value to her tunic right now, which will ultimately hurt the OSL. Remember the light source needs to be the brightest thing around, so it should probably have some white, or close to it.

 

The shadows on her lower half look great, I love it!

      Been away from it all, for a bit. Finished this one up, a little too fast -to enter it in a competition (Attack-x).
      Got a bronze, and a ton of advice on where I could have improved and upped it to silver......very exciting for my first in person competition. 
      Thanks for looking, c&c is much appreciated. And I'm guessing on the catalogue number, hasn't been released yet from Bones 3.

      I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
       
      I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
       
      The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
       
      So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

      So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!
