dks Posted January 11, 2010 Share Posted January 11, 2010 Following my show-off of the gnome sorcerer, Corim the Kestrel, here is a painted version of my recent female gnome sculpt. I didn't have a particular character in mind for her, but she needed to be cute but tough. Since I used strong primary colors on Corim, I planned to use more muted secondaries on Elliwyn: strawberry blonde ("orange") hair, some green accents, and a lavender-purple tabard. The purple looked too cold, though, so I changed it to pink before adding the freehand in the deeper rosy red. And although I quickly decided on the dark green edge for the shield, the center of the front face was first deep red (too attention-grabbing!), then pink (it looked like a slice of watermelon!), and finally the current black-brown. I added the leaf freehand to echo her sculpted necklace. Her hairstyle is called "Crisscross Fountain", as presented in a book of fancy hairstyles that I bought for reference. It's fun and unique without being impractical for adventuring. I'll post individual views to the Inspiration Gallery, too. Derek 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
