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.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!

      I had used a bunch of leftover paint for the Reaper bones version of Aviriel Tellerion (77070), and those colors where more in the "evil spectrum" so I switched her over to being a dark elf.  Very happy with how her face turned out, sadly she is looking down so you cannot really see it on the table.
      It has been a while since I posted, I have had a slump in my desire to paint this spring and I tend to wait until I have a bunch to show off to get the light box out.   Avirion here was painted in March.
