More NPCs from Curse of Strahd...
Rudolph's lantern is the first time I've actually attempted a lighting effect. I did this by priming the figure black, doing an overall drybrush of a light brown (the main color for the figure), and a drybrushing of white in raised areas that would be hit by the light. Then I laid down the basecoats, layered the highlights and glazed on a spot of yellow for the lantern.
For Ezmerelda the challenge was making the two legs distinct. I don't think I photographed her super well, but I think it reads well enough as a wooden leg. A few hard-to-reach spots on this sculpt, though! There's a few details that I might make small adjustments to after I come back from my brief holiday and look at her again, but for now, I'm satisfied.
These characters have been sculpted quite a number of different times; in the Nolzur line as "vampire hunters", in their prepainted line, etc. I considered tracking down all possible versions to compare them, but I already knew these sculpts by Gale Force 9 would be my favourites, and looking at the results, I doubt I could be proven wrong. Quite satisfied!
As commanded by the very, well, commanding @Glitterwolf, I’m going to paint this big boy. I’ve been eyeing him on the corner of my desk for months now, and to be honest I’m a little afraid of him. He’s probably going to look somewhere between terrible and mediocre by the time I’m done, but at least he won’t be grey anymore.
I’m probably going to use the airbrush that I barely know how to operate quite a bit.
I think we’re going to need a bigger brush ...
I only have up to a size 2, which I guess would be like mowing the grass with nail clippers. Should I get a size ... 4?
All are very welcome to critique/comment/heckle/throw tomatoes/etc. I need and will be very grateful for any advice and assistance I receive, but please don’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t do very much good.
