dks Posted May 30, 2012 Share Posted May 30, 2012 Juliette is an excellent miniature for a young female wizard. You could get a great variety of results by changing the colors of her dress, skin, and hair. Faced with such a range of options, I made two quick sketches on paper and then painted two schemes. I hadn't painted a figure with honey-blonde hair in a while, I realized, and this sparked my interest as a long-time player in the World of Greyhawk campaign for D&D. In Greyhawk, blondes and redheads tend to be of Suloise ethnicity, and the Suloise deity of magic is Wee Jas, the Ruby Sorceress, also the goddess of beauty and death. Her priests wear gray or black robes and often multiclass as wizards. So I made our little Juliette an ambitious young necromancer, dressed in gray and black with a hint of purple and some blood-red accents, and set her in a graveyard with her book of spells (or prayers) and a batlike imp perched on a skull. (All of these bits are stock Reaper pieces.) She has violet eyes, and I made her expression more "evil" by manipulating the shapes of her eyebrow and eye. The cover of the book bears Wee Jas's emblem of a ruby skull. I was about to add candles, but the base was already pretty crowded. The color scheme turned out as a muted secondary triad (orange, purple, green) plus red complementing the green... or maybe it's an orange-red-purple with a green complement. The figure herself is orange-red-purple, but then I brought green into the base with the tombstones and the grass. Enjoy, Derek 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
