Wish me luck! KublaCon Entry 2012

Recommended Posts

Looks great! The sculpt doesn't live up to your ability. The blending & highlighting on the stone/gem is perfect... I've been trying (to not much success) to get that same effect for a while now.


Good luck!

There is plenty of praise here so a little critique. Some of this may be from the picture which appears to be a little hazy looking. The skin is very flat, not enough shadows or highlights. Although the blending is great, you needed to go deeper with your shadows everything is appearing very midtone looking. Although I'm not a highlight to white person, there are a couple of places where your highlights could still come up at least a notch and maybe two. Its a good looking piece. There is nothing that really grabs the eye and says "look at me!".

Thanks for the praise here everyone, and especially thanks to Heisler for the critique. I value that quite a lot. After reading yours and getting more from Laszlo and Derek at the con, I'll touch up the mini and repost a picture soon. Just as soon as I finish grading finals...


Oh, and yes, the photo is not very good. There is a better photo here (where you can see the other minis that were submitted too).

      This Karzoug, Runelord of Greed and the Big Bad Evil Guy of the Pathfinder Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path. I am currently a player in that campaign and one day we will meet in one of these dungeons. This is the first time I tried my hand at an OSL effect. To make things simple I imagined him to float in a dark room with illumination only coming from his burning glaive, which kind of allowed me to limit myself to shades of two colors.

      Hi guys! Here is the latest Reaper figure I've finished. Karzoug, Runelord of Greed. It's meant to be a high quality gaming figure, so I got to have some fun with it, but I still had to limit how much time I put in.

      I've been playing in a Rise of the Runelords game since last October, and we finally finished up today.
      Since I knew it was the last session, I wanted to do something nice for the GM. I decided to paint up a mini of the main boss of the campaign, Karzoug.
      Hopefully it took a bit of the sting out of us taking him out in one round.

      Hello everyone.  I've recently started up a creative blog (mostly focused on painting miniatures, with the occassional character journals and short fiction popping up), and thought that you all may like to take a gander at some of the figures I've recently finished up:

      Queek Headtaker from Warhammer Fantasy, painted for a local painting competition (ending today).

      Geronimo! (from Wild West Exodus)

      One of the LE Sophies from our very own Reaper Miniatures

      Jack Ryan, another one of Reaper's (second time painting, first time was for a commission)

      And finally Karzoug, again from Reaper.
      You all can find the blog here (including the WIP shots of all these figures and many more): MagiusMinis.Blogspot.com
      Hope you all enjoy, and any feedback and constructive criticism is greatly appreciated
