Whizard Hlavaz Posted August 5, 2009 Share Posted August 5, 2009 *Stretch* *Yawn* "Huh? Oh, yeah... I been painting... Kind of." Long time, kids. Long time. Stay away from WoW. S.T.A.Y. A.W.A.Y. So... got out the desk. Got out the brushes. Found a primed mini and said "WTH." I'll paint this. And now... sorry to say... You have to endure the results. Mainly, I wanted to get my feet back under me with a little blending practice. Large robes are good for that. Then I thought I'd get creative. Yikes. No dice. So the idea here is the sigil is supposed to be casting a sorcerous glow, as though the wraith has swept his cloak aside to reveal a rune of dark power upon the moment of his assault. Glow effect, good. Rune, bad. I can't draw. Bottom line. And while I tried to render it using a trompe l'oeil effect -- as though carving a rune into a sword -- the glow from within kept messing me up. And I gave up after a few attempts of completely repainting it. Hate it, but whatever. It's a practice piece. The rest isn't bad. That said... all you masters... how would you render a sigil as though it's shredding the fabric of the cloth to reveal a bright (albeit dark) power from within? I'd like to get this eventually. Think it could be fun. I tried stipling. I tried cutting in edges. Each failed me. It probably just comes back to the fact that I can't draw. Just the same, what do you think? Can you hit it? If so... tell me. I'd love to try again.... Just not on this fig. It is abandoned. JW knows what I'm saying. Anyhow, enjoy! -D. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
