  1. Good morning all you folk of the Reaper persuasion, who maybe should get their own pronoun, re. So I just finished this evil wizard up, sculpted way back in the eighties by Dennis Mize, I think to replace an earlier Citadel model. Tried to keep him dark, and originally thought about starting all black and just use different highlight coloring for the cape and for the cloak, but then kind of wussed out and thought nothing cries evil like a man with a pink cloak (a la Roose Bolton) so here he is for your viewing pleasure: Enjoy all of his fashion glory!
  2. Here's the mini I did for the 2013 Winter Exchange. When I got him in the Crown Jewel box, I just couldn't wait to put paint on him! This is my actual first attempt at NMM. Also first time I did OSL, freehand (the stripes on the cuffs), glazing (the robe) and layering skin tones from scratch. I'll put up a WIP in a bit with some of the weird places this journey took me :) Edit - http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47748-03638-orson-lugrum-evil-wizard-winter-exchange/'>WIP here
  3. Kind of a weird WIP, since I wanted to keep it secret. My recipe book is at home so I'll post up pics and some commentary now and fill in paints used later. The usual prime/line that I do. Base coating. The idea was to learn glazing and for this I wanted to glaze shadows down from the highlights. So it looks a bit odd at first :) My inspiration for the robe was http://fantasy.mrugala.net/Brom%20-%20Offrandes/Brom%20-%20Offrandes%20-%20080.jpg'>this Brom painting. Kind of a blue robe shadowed down into purple with dark purple cuffs. Purple!? Yeah. Again, I took inspiration from http://fantasy.mrugala.net/Brom%20-%20Offrandes/Brom%20-%20Offrandes%20-%20018.jpg'>Brom for the skin. The idea was the opposite of the robe, to build up the skin in layers from shadow to highlight. Started with purples and worked through pink up into white. The challenge (beyond painting with an entirely new technique!) was to make him look evil/sickly without crossing over into making him look necromancery. The package says evil wizard, not necromancer! Besides, he doesn't have a bow. The stripes were a bit rough and the imp was ORANGE. I was going to work him up from there into yellow as a fire imp, with the imp under the robe as an ice imp, but I didn't like how vibrant he was as I was going for an overall muted look with this project. So I put him back to white and liked that enough that I decided they'd be more ghostly summons. First pass of glazing for the robe and cuffs. I started with dark blues. Also my first NMM gold for the trim. And the scroll got my stock scroll treatment. Nothing fancy, but it works, even if it's a bit, I dunno the word, bright? for this project. Nice to have the detail pop but it's a little out of place, maybe should have desaturated it but I'm not that good :) Second round of glazing, purples. Imps painted up ghostly with OSL eyes. Leathers painted up in dusky skin triad, I wanted to keep them muted and cool. I did give a warm glaze over the larger pouch to break up the monotone. Then ze http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47747-03638-orson-lugrum-evil-wizard-winter-exchange/'>Show-Off. Hope you enjoy this zany project, C&C and questions welcome!
