I've been a fan of Wildspire miniatures for a while, now. They're not always the most detailed sculpts, but they feature a ton of whimsy (which I enjoy). Their last Kickstarter was also full of fun, light hearted characters...and this metal AF Arch Devil from out of the blue! I instantly fell in love with his design - the belt of heads, the big mouth/teeth in his stomach, his pissed-off face...they really outdid themselves. With him being so big, my plan was to start the skin tone at Ratskin Flesh and gradually work my highlights up to a straight orange. I mathed out all my mixtures using every bit of information I learned about fractions and ratios in the 7th grade (in order to get the smoothest possible transitions without doing something like wet blending). In the end, though, I only got do get through about 5 of my 9 planned layers before I just ran out of space to put paint. If I had it to do over again, I'd have sacrificed some of the gradualness of the layering in favor of a lighter results on the highlights. Oh well. The heads on his belt were sculpted with their eyes closed, but I elected to give them an open-eyed, zombie-like appearance. In my head, these are enemies that he had a particularly strong hate for. He keeps their heads in this state of living death so that he can torture them indefinitely by having them watch all of the horrible stuff he does. The only thing I don't really like about the finished product is the colors I chose for those slits in his chest. I was going for an "inner furnace" look, but I just don't think there's enough contrast between the slits and his skin. If I had it to do over again, I'd have toyed with making them black. Also, big thanks to Wildspire. My Arch Devil originally arrived with some damage. After I contacted them, they got this replacement right out to me (and I still have the damaged one to use for custom stuff). Anyway...here he is.
