I do declare her pretty much done. She's done unless I have a midnight burst of "oh my gosh I must fix that thing". Not 100% happy with the chain, but I got it looking formidable so that's good. Not 100% happy with the hair. Highlighting just looked too cheesy, so I kept tweaking it overly. Mostly happy with her face; I got the character of it down well, but refinement is an ongoing struggle. Very happy with her red shoulder pad and trim. Fairly happy with the shading on the metals, but I could still improve. Other annoying thing: I literally cannot get enough decent lights to get good photography where I live. This is better than me taking pictures with a bunch of paint bottles around, but not like what I used to be able to set up at my old apartment. This house has atrocious lighting to begin, the lamps bulbs are too yellow, and when I do put in a nice bulb, the darn lamp has too short of a cord to reach any area that could be used for photography. The best I might be able to do is surround the area between the kitchen and the table with lamps, on the floor. And that would be in the way of my roommates and kinda gross. So I used daylight, despite the big ol' shadow, and my wimpy otlite (not bright enough alone). Enough kvetching, onward to pictures! Rip her to shreds! If you know of a way that I could get better pics without spending a ton on lamps, that would be awesome!
Finished this just now. No light for the photo box, so this was taken on the game-board: Edit: Touched up, and proper photo. Flagellant head, techno priest body, and I believe.. the weapon was made from a random chainsword, and a techno priest staff. 'Blind Desperado.'
Okay, so I posted the process of making this guy in my WIP. He is now finally done -- this is "Danar" the assassin, who is typically armed with a sword and dagger. To match a character I wrote up, I gave him a spiked chain using an old Viking method of making plaited wire (I kid you not.) I posted that method to "Painting Tips and Techniques," btw. Without further ado, I present Laeglathril, an elven fighter/barbarian who is a spiked chain specialist: Comments and questions welcome!
