03556 Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin, sculpted by Sandra Garrity

Recommended Posts

That is a BEAUTIFULLY painted & based creation. The metalwork AND his WONDERFULLY expressive face are OUTSTANDING...they suit the righteous Warrior's persona well. VERY WELL DONE!

I love this sculpt and you did a great job bringing him to life.  Your colour choices make him feel like he is surrounded in light.  I love it.

I am not sure I would have noticed that the front detail was sculpted while the back was freehand if you hadn't mentioned it.  Definitely a job well done.  I'm also terribly partial to the color scheme since our local high school also has green and white as it's colors.  You have a lucky friend!  ^_^

 Being able to produce a piece like that must be nice ... almost half as nice as being able to share it with an old friend I'll wager ... nice.

@DavePgh I love to hear this!  Thank you.

 

@LittleBluberry Thank you, it was a pain, but worth it in the end.

 

@Boaz He’s a great friend.  We were lucky enough to go to the same college, and were roommates for a few of those.  We try to get a game going when he comes to town to visit his parents.  I’m sure he’d be happy even if it was my first mini!  Thank you.

Beautiful!  I love your color choices and the gold came out great!

 

I wish I could paint eyes like that.  It seems like I usually get the first eye right but then struggle with the second.

      The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.

      Here is the next project for “Try to paint all the things!”
       
      I plan to paint her as a very light skinned elf.  I might try an Autumnal color scheme.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.
       
      Ron let me paint this lovely sculpt by Gene Van Horne.  Actually, I think I might have begged to paint it and considered stealing it from his office if he refused.   She'll be in the Greek Odyssey Expansion for Bones V.  If by some miracle you have come to this forum and not heard of Bones V, it can be found here.  Aaron Lovejoy was awesome and took some high definition photos of her after last Reapercon.  
       





       
      I really love this sculpt, can't say that enough.  She's got some fantastic detail, lots of good open space to work on blending or freehand, even a scenic base to play with stone effects.  While I loved the original Yephima by Patrick Keith, and still use her in my classes, this one really screams warrior to me.  I need to paint my bones version when I get it as Athena. I'll have to add a shield somewhere, though. Maybe convert the club to a spear.  Decisions decisions.
       
      Anyway, feel free to ask questions.  I'm happy to explain or help with anything!  I'm going to post the WIP pictures I have in another post, so hopefully those will also be useful.  Enjoy!

      This is Barzillai Thrune, the major villain from the Pathfinder Hell's Rebels campaign. I painted him as a service to my DM because we are currently playing that campaign and my intuition tells me that it will be needed some day. The mini is extremely faithful to the original Wayne Reynolds art and I also used the same colour scheme, but I regret using my standard unimaginative "block of acryl paste" base. With the burning mace the mini would be excellent for OSL experiments and there are two fine versions of it on the forum with lighting effects, but I thought to late about the idea and was reluctant to add it to the almost finished mini.
