Painted yesterday with LTPK: Layer Up bought with Xmas monies. Followed directions from booklet with the exception of the shirt sleeves. The guide has red sleeves. I went with Heather Blue, and shaded with a wash of 1p Dark Highlights/1p Ebony Flesh/5p water. Layering is a tough skill for me. Several adjustments of shade and base back and forth. I skipped the lining; too cartoony for me. Highlights came easier. (Also bought MSP Starter Set) Tried to shadow Anirion's face on the left more as it is deeper in his cowl. Not the effect I was looking for, but it's time to move on to another mini.
Paints: Reaper LTPK paints
Finish: Testor's Dullcoat
As per Reaper's suggestion: I did not primer the mini, but I will in the future. I did wash it thoroughly with a toothbrush in hot soapy water. If you look at the right bottom hem of the cloak on the pic of the back you can see a chip out of the paint. That was the fourth such chip I had to retouch. Mini was never dropped or scraped. The paints simple didn't bond well. (All Reaper paints)
Here is another I did, please let me know how I can improve! Thanks! I know the basics to put a base coat, wash and drybrush to highlight. Looking to expand my knowledge and techniques.
So here is my take on Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard from the Vampire set from the first Kickstarter.
I will be the first to admit that I might have gone a little crazy with the GW Agarax Earthshade wash on the robe (Especially on the back, you can see it just clumped and got goopy), but this was my first foray back into painting in about a year, and was kind of rushing it to get him finished for play.
I know he doesn't look much like a Wood Elf, but that's because the player in my Campaign who I painted this for is quite fond of Fire Spells, so I used alot of hot colours, and then used the ice blue to sort of oppose the colour scheme and add some contrast.
Doing the yellow line was also my first attempt at free hand painting.
I think he turned out a-okay for table top quality. Tell me what you think!
