Looks pretty good for your first attempt there Adrift!


I'd work on a bit more subtly with the OSL though, it should be brighter at its source and then get weaker as it moves further away, so for example on this piece you have the the whole face/shoulders/arms almost the same color as the source of the light, but they'd get darker the further away from the source it goes. Best way to do it is to look at other examples by painters and look at real life examples of how light reflects off different objects.

Ooh I love the story behind him and he looks wicked cool!  :wub:

Thank you! I'm a DM at heart and literally cannot paint a miniature without somehow contemplating a 'reason' for the miniature in terms of a story. 


I need to paint this guy, but everyone keeps doing such a better job than I can, so I keep procrastinating. Great job Adrift. 

Thanks! Please paint. Paint often and post even more so! It's the only way to keep getting better!


And always ask for C&C and let people know you want to push yourself!!!

at my first attempts with OSL i've found that subtle drybrushing is nice.

Then you can go on with really thinned paint.


I think the VERY trick about osl is that you should seethat there was another color beneath that changes tone as closer as it gets to the source

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
      Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.
