03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer sculpted by Tre Manor
Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out. This was a really difficult miniature to photograph. The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base. I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it. I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange. Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure. In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure.
Comments and criticism are welcome.

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.
First off, I love the painting instructions you've been putting up for the new minis! Thank you, they're wonderful!
Do you think you could make a more printer friendly version, without the fancy background color but still keeping the pictures?
These two minis are the same character, one in an action pose as an eldritch knight, and the other as arch mage of the mages college. These are for an upcoming pathfinder campaign. These are custom heroforge minis I printed and sculpted flames on the sword for added effect.
