In that case I would start really dark, but not pure black.  Mix together a deep reddish brown with a little black and then start layering up.  You'll have to decide how dark you want her to be as you establish a midtone, but against such dark skin I usually find shades that would work as shadow colors on light skin work as highlights on dark skin.  A purple glaze, especially in the shadows, can add depth to the skin.

 

Edit: Just remembered there is an article on this with color swatches to really illustrate what I meant.

So new photo!!! Little bit better...

I put bronze on the scythe, and sliver on the skull I worked a little on the skin and got the cloak started base coat. I think I'm gonna do orange/yellow OSL, but not quite sure what do y'all think? I'm also gonna try my hand again at TMM wish me luck...

best way to do OSL: highlight up the areas you want to look light to your highest highlight, even waaay up to white.  then put a thin layer (glaze) of your light's color over that.  that will look more realistic in terms of keeping "lit" areas "light"  If you can, put a less bright color of the light further out- I go from yellow, to orange to red to mimic the way light dims as it travels.

 

YOU CAN DO IT!!!! yay!!!

So I'm done for tonight. Got blending kinda started I decided on grey since the example paint-job is purple. The front looks good, the back not so much...

I'll work on it some more tomorrow. C&C welcome, as is any advice at all. Also, Yellow/ Orange OSL or Blue/White? I can't for the life of me decide and I'm not great with color theory...

 Just got around to reading that article today, very handy!  I've bookmarked it for easy reference.  Thank you!

 

Really like it. I also think OSL will rock on this one!

 

I agree!  I think she's going to rock!  As for the OSL color, I think it depends on whether you want it to look more unearthly or ghostly or real(?).  Blue or green would be more unearthly/ghostly IMHO.  Orange/yellow would look more like a real lantern, but still scary.

      Took a shot at the ol OSL. 
       
      This model is from my youth that I'd always been afraid to paint because i didn't want to mess it up.  Years later, now I feel like my skills are better and it was worth a shot.  Not only did I take a shot, I did it with a real challenge applied to it.  I was either going to mess it up - or REALLY mess it up.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using the colors red and purple seem very wizardly.  Felt like a strong combo and happy with it.
      *  The OSL I did was using a dry brush and sweeping it from the main source and only moving in that direction.  
      *  After the initial area had been 'zoned' I went in and brought up the colors further.  I had a difficult time identifying what would be lit or not.
       
      Misses:
      *  The highlight on the face is way too much.  I wanted a light cast to it, but Iwasn't thinking like sitting in front of the sun.  Help.
      *  What colors to use for bringing up a light source?  I was thinking some kind of fire getting cast away.  I went Orange, Yellow, White, but only hitting white up close and fading to deeper colors farther from the source.
      *  The shading in the cape and undercape - I didn't do anything but feel it does need something.  Does it look strange without it?
       
      If I were to base this one, I'm wondering how I can really knock this light effect out on the base, too.  I may end up just leaving this as is and thinking fondly of it as a first attempt at OSL.  I also think having taken a challenge piece from my childhood and honoring it with something fun to do in my adulthood felt...redeeming.

      Hello everyone, now that the event is over, here are some more pictures of my entry in the 17th Quarterly contest. A big thanks to everybody that voted for me. This is a 77752, Female Minotaur sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It was a fun model to work on and I challenged myself painting object source lighting (OSL) on it. I made the fire with pieces of popsicle stick and Liquitex heavy gel medium.

      Finally varnished and ready for the table: Sepp, Brunhilde and Urs.
       
      I painted them up to kick off my Rangers of Shadow Deep Project. More infos and a bit of backstory can be found in this WIP.
       
      Those three are my first attempt at OSL. Luckily, I did not have to make this journey alone: I'd like to thank @Geoff Davis for a great class at RVU and an even better private lesson via zoom.
       
      Enjoy, C&C very welcome!
