Hopefully one part of a small diorama for the Halloween contest, here's a WIP for the Undertaker. Thus far, he's painted as if lit by moonlight; a much stronger OSL will come from the lantern in a bit. So the back and face are pretty much done, but the front needs much more work.

Never done OSL before, and I think this'll be a pretty ambitious version of OSL. So uh... we'll see how this goes. I did keep the rest of the mini pretty dark, so I can pretty easily bring the illuminated areas up higher than everything else, but still. It'll be real interesting!

Put down the OSL today. What do you think? I'm pretty proud of it, but I'd really like to get it as good as possible, so if you see problem spots, feel free to point them out. (Also, I swear I didn't set out to make yet another imitation of Cash's; it just sort of happened...)


Lots of pics this time, so I stuck them in a spoiler. I had trouble getting one photo to show the different angles properly, especially with the contrast.

Alright, Undertaker's done, with the exception of the base, and I whipped up the Ghost King real quick to go with him. I'm not quite as pleased with the OSL on the Ghost, but I can't pin down why that is. Next step is to build a base for these guys. Please let me know if you have any critiques of my OSL (or anything else).

That looks great! I am not sure what is bugging you on the skeleton. He looks good to me. Maybe just keep him close to the lamp on the base. You know what also might look nice is to add some very thinned down blue to some of the dark shadows. Might make your yellow/orange light pop a little more.

Demihuman: The shadows are actually Nightmare Black, which is very blue, though it may not have shown up so well in pictures on the blue background?


fanguad: Hmm, that's a good point. I did run a highlight along the bottom edge, but do you think one of the faces should be highlighted?

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

      And just the pinup after some prep work 

      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 

      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
      Happy painting everyone.

      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.

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
