Awesome!

 

The tartan is of course the main attraction, but both the sword and the gem on the necklace look amazing as well.!

 

I have an urge to watch Highlander.

Yes, while appreciating the tartan it's the sword that really catches my eye on this one.

 

Thanks very much.  I've been working hard at improving my NMM.  I have been forcing myself to use only black and white lately (plus other colours as reflections occasionally) and its really helped me to figure out where the highlights need to be for it to seem shiny.  Plus plagiarizing admiring other people's work here on the forums helps me a lot too!

Bravehart also comes to mind ... only because Mr.O'Manon looks so heroic ... well done sir and thanks for the step by step.

      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.
