Here a beautiful sculpt from the spanish miniature studio "Andrea miniaturas". It's the wizard "Khaerus el invocador", which I painted with a piromancer palette, and included kind of a flame-familiar invocation. I'm pretty happy with the outcome, particularly with the red-oranges that work, I think, beautifully
I recently posted a couple new projects and here is yet one more! As you can probably tell, I jump around a lot. When I get stuck on a figure instead of banging my head into the wall, I prefer to take a break and work on something else. I will get back to those other ones, don't worry! But, for now, here's what I'm spending my time on. This is a 54mm figure from Andrea's Warlord Saga line. It's an interesting figure, although I haven't seen many other people paint it. The figure is called Sorondil, Dragon Hunter. However, over the past day or so I've decided to change his setting to a pseudo-prehistoric one, like Marvel's Savage Lands. So I guess that makes my version, Sorondil, Dinosaur Hunter. =) I began on the face and skin. I switched up the shadows a little bit. Normally I use RMS Mahogany Brown and Chestnut Brown, both mixed with 10-20% Rosy Shadow for my skin shadows. This time around, I added an extra 25-33% Imperial Purple to those mixes. It's fantasy, so I can play around a bit more, and I plan to use a lot of red and purple throughout the figure. From there I went into my usual Rosy Shadow, then Fair Skin, and finally Fair Highlight. After all that I used some red and purple glazes to add a bit more color here and there. The scales were Burgundy Wine, Violet Red, Fire Red, and a touch of Fair Skin mixed in for the top highlights. The darker scales were black, Dark Elf Shadow, Dark Elf Skin, Dark Elf Highlight, and again a touch of Fair Skin for the top highlights. He's obviously missing some parts. I left off the quiver and his left arm (holding the bow), so I would have easier access to the details on his clothing. His right arm isn't really in the way, but he's holding a long spear with a thin shaft and a huge stone head. It looks very breakable and I'm sure clumsy ol me would snap it in half very quickly while trying to paint the figure. So that will be one of the last pieces I attach just for the sake of safety. Over the weekend a friend at one of the local painting groups in LA was showing me a kit of 1/35 scale dinosaurs from Tamiya. The detailing on them was nice and the size was right for the figure, so I ordered a box and will hopefully be able to use them on the base. I'm excited to try them out.
