Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me. 🤔
So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!
WIP is where the work starts in this thread.

Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.
Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
Backdrop is a black cardstock.
Yeah, it's early, but I know Tiny Furniture takes awhile to get your mini's. Also, of course, some of us haven't even started painting their Halloween miniatures. So here's a reminder to start painting! Feel free to post your Halloween miniature pics, new and classic. 👻👻👻
These miniatures are Tiny Furniture's "Deadly Scarecrows" and "Halloween Pumpkins" on a Secret Weapon Miniatures "Field of Screams" base. The base is very good for Halloween diorama pictures, and the pumpkins great for Halloween basing accessories.
I've been working on my drakes/dragons for what feels like forever now. Last week, Jim of Dark Sword brought me a copy of the metal masters for the small versions of them as they are being prepared for casting. He gave me permission to paint one up as my ReaperCon entry, despite their not being released yet. So here goes...
If you want to read the whole tale on the sculpting of these drakes, check out this thread in the sculpting section.
After prepping the mini, I primed it with my airbrush, using stylrnez.
About 6 months ago, I had started painting a resin prototype of this mini that I had printed. That mini was a bit too small and had some errors in the scales on its tail, so I abandoned it. That said, I am sticking fairly close to the color concept I had with that one and will be using it as a preliminary sketch of where I want this one to go. Here is that sketch model:
On Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends to work on our Open entries and I began the painting in earnest, All paints are MSP. The dorsal scales are based in Sharkbite, the sides in Marid Blue, and the belly in Grindylow Green. The belly was washed in a mix of Grindylow Green and Clear Pthalo Green. I have more work to do on that shading yet though. I then shaded the sides down to Sharkbite. I also have more work to do on the deepest shadows there yet after I get the highlights done.
I also painted the eyes and teeth.
Yesterday, I highlight the sides up to white and based the claws in Drow Skin.
I plan on spending every night this week working on it and have Friday off as well. I hope I can be done on Friday, but we'll see. I do have all my classes prepped, so am ready for ReaperCon other than this project and one other metal work project I have going. It is going to be a busy week though.
