This has been an extremely delightful miniature to paint. I created a WIP (link below) since I decided to break with my standard way of doing things. I made mistakes along the way, and learned from them. I simplified this miniature in line with the sculpting that Tom did. I went for the "feel" of the actions, and didn't try to "pretty it up". I like the power this mini protrudes. So here is The Ancient Wizard. I've included a photo with a quarter to give an idea about scale. As usual, comments and critiques are valued. Here is the Link to the WIP if you are interested in seeing what I have done here. Jay http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70602-ancient-wizard-wip-dsm7316/
I decided to post what I am doing with this mini, since I just decided that I was not following my usual routine. He has been broccoli clipped, cleaned up as best I could do, and Primed. Rather than line him with my usual brown liner, I decided to use a black wash. It gives me a lot of contrast, but I don't have to paint over that usual brown. The black should work for my intentions. Nice to see all the fine details on this one. The beard makes me shiver in AN-TIS-I-PAT-ION. Tom did a magnificent job on that, as well as the right hand at the base of the staff on left side. He always sneaks in a detail you aren't expecting. I am planning on basing him on some tree bark to look like a mountain ledge, and some tree's around the base. I'll try to make sure I show my various steps to completion ! So here are a few photos of where he stands now.
