03157: Garwin Greywand, Wizard sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Continuing on with practicing OSL. I started by undershading with dark brown and purple and highlighted up to linen white on his body and base. I did the same thing but with black and greys on his staff.
I then added the blue for his robe, using two sets of blues. One set has no light effect colour added. The other set has the yellow added. I did the shading and highlighting on the dark side with the blues that didn't have the yellow added. I used the set with the yellow added anywhere that I thought the light was going to hit, using the undershading as a guide as to where that would be. The yellow I mixed with the blue is also used on the orb.
Then I added the other colours (particularly the staff and the fleshtones) using the same approach of mixing up two sets of the colours to use side by side.
Overall I'm pleased with the way it's turning out. A few of the values seem out of balance though. Particularly parts of the staff compared to the adjacent areas on his robe. Some of the flesh tones that are further away from the orb need to be darker still. The part of the staff directly below the orb seems too bright overall, especially right beneath the orb. Still a work in progress.
These are the first figures I painted after lurking around here for a few months. Think they came out well.
It's been awhile since I posted some pics of my completed works so I thought I would get some put up here in hopes of some more insightful C&C.
Here is Mason Thornwarden which I recently got from the BoGW.
A couple comments about this guy. I was going for a polished grainy wood appearance on the bow but not sure if I like the result (on the picture that looks like a white spot on he back of the bow is just the reflection of my lamp on the glossy bow). On his quiver and scabbard I tried kind of a black leather look which I have mixed feeling about as they look better in person than on camera. I also tried some NMM gold on the handle of the bow with my new MSP paints, again I have mixed feelings about how it turned out but I really like the triad.
I think my painting continues improving but I am still lightyears from where I want to be. I know I can still be a little cleaner with my paint job and I could work on smoothing my blends (especially on the boots) but I would really appreciate any C&C that anyone has.
