Ryan S replied to Bustawolf's topic in Show Off: PaintingWhen will this miniature be open for retail purchase? I would love to own the sculpt.
Hi, I want to start this to get me motivated to get some accountability and hopefully guilt myself into working. So here is the very first of hopefully many steps. The first step is to prime the miniature, I've done that, the 2nd step? To photograph the miniature to capture the volumes of real light that shows where I want my light source. For this I want two light sources. So really that means I just used my computer screen and my ceiling light, adjust the miniature to taste and get the angle I want to set the light. The screen light is whiter and will be the light from outside the window, the yellower ceiling light will be my tavern fire light and will be the primary light source. The skin will be fairly shiny so this is pretty much a mandatory process to get those realistic sheens....because I'm literally stealing form reality it helps a lot. If I were a better painter I could fake the light sources with enough knowledge. Thankfully I have some serious shadows on the model, and my mid tones will have a lot of room for blending. The problem now? Picking my colors. What do I know? I know the floor is wood colored and the axe/haft materials I know that I'm going to want off white and pinks for eye whites and gums teeth etc. The gold of the primer is actually a really beautiful color for a fantasy creature, so I might see if I can't keep that. So Gold, pink, whites/off whites, and browns, I don't know if I want a two toned or patterned beholder. I think this is gonna be a challenge whatever I do. I think I want to go for a fleshy color
