Really well done, I think you already have a firm grip at it. The gem, the hair and sword are great too.

I derived this simplified pattern from the pattern I did on an earlier project.  That tartan was loosely based upon the  Afghanistan Memorial Tartan. 

 

However, the white lines and red lines on that project did not work out well at all.  So I simplified it to get the pattern on this miniature.  Note that the tartan I linked to above has a blue pattern, rather than the green I chose to use on this miniature. 

 

I really like that pattern of that tartan, but it turned out my hands were too shaky and I didn't have the paint consistency right for doing the smooth thin lines needed to make it look good.  I needed to drink less coffee and thin my paint differently.  When I used straight liquitex flowaid to thin the dark green for the thin lines, they turned out very fine and smooth as you can see on Ian MacAndrew.  The choice of miniature to apply the plaid pattern to is very important as well.  Flared skirts the one in the picture below are quite difficult to line up the pattern on.  Like I said in my original post, I'm still working out the process.

Excellent work! I've really wanted to pick up some of the highlanders and try to work on tartans.

      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.

      I’ve been working on this guy for months, off and on. Finally pushed him through to completion last night. I hope you like him.

      These are the first figures I painted after lurking around here for a few months. Think they came out well.

      02476: Lorna The Huntress sculpted by Bobby Jackson.  This is the P65 version.  A bit of a speedpaint in order to try out a different tartan colour scheme.  This one is based upon the Robertson Hunting Tartan.
