I really like this. The freehand on the back is awesome. Thanks for sharing this.

Wonderful!

You score a definite success on achieving a palette that avoids the expected red/orange.

And it's further proof that Bones figures can/do look great with skillful painting.

I like how you got all those subtle warm colors for his skin / hair / horns (the muted pastel yellows and oranges) to harmonize but still stay distinctive because of the shading and lining. You also did the painted texture on the horns very well.

And then the hot-pink and slate-blue contrasts draw my eye around well. Something about the blue looked out of place (too cold, maybe) when I first saw the photos, but now that I look at length, I'm fine with it.

 

The freehand on the coat makes me think of Aztec or Mayan ruins, since the tawny leather color reminds me of sandstone and the flaring coat's triangular shape is like a pyramid.

 

So... if a monster kills this character, is the technical term for it In-Yo-Cide-cide? :blink:

No.

 

No it is not.

Thank you, Derek, for the thoughtful feedback. I always appreciate it when you take the time to critique one of my minis. I'm glad I took the time to establish the palette before I started. I chose the blue, because it's the compliment of the skin's base color. Using complimentary colors is something I discovered can really bring life to a miniature.

Even so, I'll leave it to the other competitors...at least until I've spent my credit! (I have too many figures to paint already!)

      Wizards of the Coast D&D metal model.
      From the year Two-Thou-sand (you have to say it like Conan O'Brien)
      Rescued from the Island of Lost Pewture, (aka my friends rpg storage shed)  and painted up. I love his goggles, I don't think you see enough of those on wizard minis. I can see a fireball coming.

      Good Friday everyone, here are pictures of the mini I'll be using as a necromancer in my upcoming D&D game.
      14060, Leisynn the mercenary mage is one of my top 5 favorite model. It was sculpted by Tim Prow for the Warlord game.

      For your consideration I present my take on the Wizard’s Workshop. This piece was created in response to a challenge issued by a Twitch streamer that I follow. The challenge was themed Fatherly for Fathers Day 2020. I spent several hours searching for the right model until I came across this piece. Inspired by Alexi Z’s example on the Reaper website I decided to try OSL for the first time. (Using an airbrush is almost cheating lol) I wanted to find a unique base for this project and settled on the Shattered Ritual 100mm base by Secret Weapon Miniatures. In addition to the Wizard’s Workshop I also added 77318: Bookshelf, 77248: Crates (Large and Small) (2) and 77249: Large Barrel Small Barrel to the scene
       
      The Glowing effect was created by adding LIT Green Glow Pigment by Culture Hustle and mixing it with the acrylic paint and applying it with the airbrush. C&C welcome

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.
