I'm painting a mini with a light source, and decided to rebase the beastie with some water effects, probably epoxy resin. I'll probably try to make the water at least slightly rough, creating interest for the eye. I woke up in a cold sweat this morning realizing that the light source should be reflected (or possibly just highlighted) in/on the water. My initial thought was to: lightly (heh) color the bottom of the pool as if it were dry and lit by the light source pour and texture the water highlight the water by drybrushing from the light source out. My concern about this is that if the viewer looks toward the light, the surfaces of any wavelets will be highlighted on the opposite side from the POV. In other words, the viewer will see the undersides or backsides of any highlights through the translucent wavelets, and this might not look the way the viewer expects. Has anyone done this? I looked around for a few examples but although there are plenty of doing wave effects (froth and foam), I haven't found any yet that look like translucent glare.
I'm working on painting a big bad bug monster that's mostly in shadow. It's front claws are just barely in torchlight. My Google-fu has failed me. Can anyone point me in the direction of reference pics for flame reflecting off of black carapace? Beetle, alien, whatever... Thanks!
Hello all, I keep looking for pictures of dungeon crawling where they are carrying a sword and and torch. I can't seem to find one... I have a miniature I am very close to finishing but the OSL reflecting on the sword is eluding me. So rather than stew in my own misery I would reach out to everyone hear. It's maddening cause I got the OSL on his clothing looking good but I have not been able to wrap my mind around how it would look on a reflective surface. THANK YOU, `Arc
Back for the January Bones Beauty Contest I painted up a half dozen or so Bones halflings and gnomes (and enough more metal halflings to make a baker's dozen, but they will get shown later). This is Lem, Iconic Bard. I painted his facial expression after a particular mischievous and charming nephew of mine. I played a flute like his in school; the reflections on the flute are all painted on.
