Chultish Mage OSL

Recommended Posts

Painted this guy a while back, but wanted to post now to get some critiques.

 

I'm working on putting more OSL into my minis since they get used for DnD, so any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. In this case, I wanted the direction of the observer to be from straight ahead, so the light would sort of shade around the side of his face in a cool way. Enjoy El’Sam Sonjack, wisecracking mage of Chult.

 

Have a great day!!

It looks pretty cool. But you requested "Critique" so here goes...

 

With the amount of reflected light on the face and shoulder, the source should be a good bit brighter to make it look more plausible. On their own, each is pretty BLEEPing good, especially for someone who seems to be fairly new to this. It is when taken together, that a bit of a disconnect happens.

 

So, hope that helps a bit.

Good critique, much appreciated! I see what you mean. I should have put more bright reds/yellows in there to really make the fire bolt glow. It doesn’t look right the way it is...

      Recently finished this lovely mini from Dark Sword. Toyed with a few ideas but the winter theme ended up being the one that stuck. I wish I had had more time to spend on it but I am happy with how she turned out.

      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.

      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.
