Most Impressive. The OSL on her right hip is particularly good IMHO.

 

Thank you! That is one of my favorite parts as well! I think I got lucky. After shading and highlighting her skin, I decided to try glazing Reaper Clear Red over that part of her skin. (It is also what I used on her cheeks.) It worked great so I didn't mess with it anymore.

Wow. Really good!

 

I am quite impressed!

 

I don't think it is a problem she is leaning. Makes her look dynamic.

 

Thank you!

 

There is just a tiny little place to wedge her foot in the base. I couldn't see any other place for her foot to go. After the first glueing, I popped her off and took my hobby knife to the base to smooth it out thinking maybe there was something there. Glued her back in and nope, still leans to the right, grrr! It's not as noticeable in person but now it bothers me. Haha!

Wow! skincolor and fire/light is absolutely inpressing .. well so is the rest. ..most impressing!

 

Thank you! This is the first time I have used a Reaper triad and I am very impressed. I am getting several of the other skin triads because the olive was so nice to work with.

You leveled up on this one!

Great work.  The skin triads are fantastic.  Olive is particularly great though.  I don't like the fair skin triad though - its *extremely* subtle. I usually use shadowed skin highlight as my fair skin shadow.

I love this!  Really beautiful!

 

I really like the OSL!  I like that it is subtle and doesn't dominate over the skin tones.

 

I really need to look into getting some of the skin triads!  They look really nice!

I am really impressed with the olive. I usually mix my own, which I have always liked, but I wanted to try the triads and the olive was the only one that I could find all 3 at Cancon.

 

My cart right now is full of flesh colors. It is so hard to tell by the swatches though, several of them in my cart look very similar. Thanks for the heads up on the Fair Skin. When you say too subtle, you mean the 3 are too similar to each other?

With the flame wrapping around her, it was hard to decide how much OSL to put on her. I actually printed a photo of her so I could look and see which part of the flame would be casting light since I painted her separate from the base.

 

I actually didn't know how much I would like the skin triads but I am now a fan! Can't wait to get some of the others, especially the dark skin and the dusky skin.

The mage is absolutely resplendent! Your precision is great, the color palette is outstandingly selected, and the OSL is well placed. 

For C&C, I think the fire itself needs work. There is so much amazing life in the mage that the fire seems almost static. Perhaps a bit more into the nooks and crannies on it would bring it up to match the mage. I really adore her!

What would you suggest for the fire? I did blending and drybrushing. The drybrushing could be the problem as I don't think I am very good at it. I had white showing through at the bottom but it looked a little weird so I used Clear Yellow to glaze over the white. This is also the first time I have ever done fire so it was a lot of experimentation! I'll take any tips to get better!

well since you asked... you painted the fire the right way, white brightest in center to yellow than red to finally black at the tips. The reason I think it looks "a little" and I do mean a little off is that you approached it as a "line" instead of a complete source. An example to what I'm trying to say is I should see some black tips in the center as well not just at the top of the figure. Fire spreads all directions, for a more three dimensional look. But still think it looks decadent!

      For your consideration I present my take on the Wizard’s Workshop. This piece was created in response to a challenge issued by a Twitch streamer that I follow. The challenge was themed Fatherly for Fathers Day 2020. I spent several hours searching for the right model until I came across this piece. Inspired by Alexi Z’s example on the Reaper website I decided to try OSL for the first time. (Using an airbrush is almost cheating lol) I wanted to find a unique base for this project and settled on the Shattered Ritual 100mm base by Secret Weapon Miniatures. In addition to the Wizard’s Workshop I also added 77318: Bookshelf, 77248: Crates (Large and Small) (2) and 77249: Large Barrel Small Barrel to the scene
       
      The Glowing effect was created by adding LIT Green Glow Pigment by Culture Hustle and mixing it with the acrylic paint and applying it with the airbrush. C&C welcome

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.

      Howdy, all. 
      So, in my coming Reaper order (Thursday can't come soon enough!), I've got Mrs. Bones and the Pathfinder Goblin Pyros. All of these minis have fire of one sort or another, and I've never painted fire before, because, well, I'm a rookie at mini painting. Thankfully, I was smart enough to purchase some firey colors alongside those, namely Fireball Orange and Brilliant Red. I've also got Candlelight Yellow. With that in mind, how should I go about painting flames like these? How should I wash and drybrush the fire also?
       
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      One of my recently finished miniatures, and my first attempt at doing some object source lighting.  Truth be told this was all a bit of an experiment and as such the ghost was very rushed (She was 100% drybrushed), most of my time and effort went into the base and trying to pull off a convincing OSL glow effect.  It is far from perfect, but for a first attempt I am fairly pleased with the result.
