Angry, Cheerful.... Psychotic? A very confusing cleric.


Recommended Posts

OSL looks nice!

 

If you want to reduce the "psycho" eye effect, I think you could take your eye-liner color and make the bottom of the eyes less round, then go back with your skin and clean up.

 

Basically, if the eyes are currently football shaped, make them either half-footballs or even crescents (horns down, obv.) and it will give a more smiley effect. There's a reason smiling anime characters just get sideways "c" lines for eyes.

 

eta: the smiling mouth is actually pretty great, you did nice work getting that part of his expression changed!

I like your OSL and you did a good job making him looking...happier. The only thing for me is the eyes. The blue looks like vertical lines and not round to me. Also, I think there is too much white showing in the eyes. However, I also know that some of this is attributed to it being blown up in the pictures and in hand, it probably isn't even noticeable. Just me nit picking. The torch is also very well done!

I like that idea! I'm not going to redo it on this figure, but I'll keep this in mind for future figures. This is the first time I had to do much on expressions that wasn't sculpted in and fell into place with the paint.

You caught me! I often do somewhat vertical lines and pretend they are round. I'm working on that for better faces later. He does have a bunch of white in the eyes, more than usual. Probably doesn't help with his psychosis! The torch went together very fast. I just kept layering colors on top, often with drybrushing. Then I tossed some soot in there.

I like it a lot actually!

The clothes are spot on!

 

The only thing a bit off are indeed the eyes.

One trick is NOT to use white, but use a more Off-White like Bleached Linen, Linen White, something that tends to look like white but isn't as bright.

Oh yeah, that feeling when there are so many great minis and your player choose something you completely disagree with for their character ...

 

As others have mentioned, that OSL looks great! And to be fair, everyone smiling while handling a scythe would look psychotic.

The whites of his eyes are linen white. I only used pure white for the tiny reflection dot.

Then I guess it's the camera that makes them look brighter then they are.

 

Entirely possible. And I wasn't being all that careful with setup this time. I had the ringlight on 3/4. 2/4 brightness seemed slightly too dark last time. Maybe I will mix it up more and experiment next time. 

 

I do think others are right that I left too much white in the eyes. It may be more potentially "accurate" but it doesn't look quite right. Unless he actually is psychotic.

I think a psychotic witchhunting  cleric would be fitting.

Just introduce him to witch or two and you're off!

      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!

      Hello everyone, here's the result of my first attempt at sky and earth non metallic metal (SENMM). This Dark Heaven Legends model 02023, Tolzar Righteous Arm was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I started painting it during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). I painted the cape as I was following along Ian Markon's class on blending through Layering and Feathering. I then painted the freehand at the bottom of the cape during Brice Cocanour's Beginner Freehand class. I finally painted his armor, shield and hammer head using the SENMM technique. It's my first take at Sky and Earth Non Metallic Metal. I did my best to reflect the sunset on all metallic parts. Let me know what you think.

      the polka dots took forever. 
      I am happier with how the face came out than the free-hand.

      A lovely little sculpt by Bob Ridolfi, she was part of our swag from  Reapercon 2020.  I added the extra gosling on the base, as well as a couple extra golden eggs. 
       

       

       
      I thought they looked more like potatoes than eggs in this shot, though. :)
