Elquin, High Elf Adventurer

Recommended Posts

One of my friends asked me to find a druid miniature to paint up to use as his D&D character. I found some possibilities for him and he choose the metal version of Elquin.

 

Any input would be appreciated.

It looks good, SG. The pics are a bit dark though, hard to make out the finer details to give you an accurate bit of critique.

This mini is so smoothly blended.

Its subtle, and balanced, and subdued.

Its a masterpiece in blended and subtle colors.

 

I personally (remember, I'm the dude that doesn't master blend, I like my colors

to explode)...would love to see a more pronounced highlight like what you did on the front facing scroll.

Please remember, I can also be an idiot when it comes to this.

 

I love it as it is also.

I love that dark green cloak. Care to share what paints you used on it?

Not a problem. They were, from shade to highlight, the RMSP Moss triad: 9082, jungle moss; 9083,highland moss; and 9084, pale lichen. The front part was jungle moss highlighted with highland moss and shaded with black. I loved this triad as it makes a great muted green.

Great shading, but the background seems too dark to me.

 

It's really not the background, it's the lighting. She needs another light or two set up in front of the figure to bring out a bit more detail.  ^_^

It is definitely the lighting. I have two lights set on each side and to the front but I am still working on my set up. It was a bit different this time as I had did not have the time to do my regular set up.

 

 

I could, if you would like, try and do some simple colour correction in photoshop?

 

Go right ahead, just let me know what you did so I can try it. I usually run my photos through photoshop and just do auto levels or auto contrast. The full photos looked great, it was just when I did the cropping that it got dark. I also take groups of photos at different ISO levels and then choose the best out of those but I did not have time with this guy. I might play around some more with the originals to see if I can get better results.

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.

      This was an experiment with color. I decided to give the Limited Palette challenge a try last night.  The challenge is 3 colors, plus black and white. Specifically, the three colors must be a blue, green, and pink.  I chose cyan blue, gnoll pelt, and cactus flower.  I'm quite happy with how she came out, for a figure I wasn't terribly interested in to begin with. 
       

       

       

       
      Sorry, my camera could not handle a close-up of the face. 
       
      For anyone wondering about the red hair, a strange thing happens when you mix cactus flower and gnoll pelt....
       

       
      The base is from Secret Weapon.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"
