I love the lighting effects, awesome work!!!

Care to share a tip on how to do it that way? :lol:

 

Sure!

 

The key things for this were the consistency of the glazes and the direction of the brush strokes. I pulled the paint from the lower points to the higher points, in order that when I removed my brush, the majority of the paint was left higher up on the mini. This is kind of hard to put into words, lol. I'm bad at explaining things.

 

First thing I did was make a glaze of Burgundy Wine, and glaze over the largest part of where the light from the sword would hit, just to give these parts a slightly violet tint. After that, I used Violet Red to glaze the higher points of those parts closer to the sword. At first, I used the Pale Violet Red to go lighter, but it was a bit too pink for what I was going for. Instead, I just added a tiny bit of linen white to the Violet Red midtone to bring it up toward a more apt version for this. Again, I made this into a glaze and applied this only to the very tips near the sword.

 

For the sword, I used the same colors, and just pulled from the hilt to the tip of the blade, one thin glaze layer at a time and making sure they were completely dry before doing the next.

 

If you have any other questions, please ask, and I'll try and answer them as best I can!

Supposed to be from the sword.

 

Thought so, sorry. I just finished one where the light was shining at a wizard who was holding up a staff so the SOL was shining on the staff but not emanating from it (if you get me).

 

I got to thinking the wraith was dodging a red fireball spell and it was shining off his sword and glowing on his cloak.. Looks great either way, seriously awesome effect!!!

The Spook is a WONDERFULLY painted, BEAUTIFULLY based creation. The lighting effect from the glowing sword is a SPLENDIDLY eerie effect. VERY WELL DONE!

This is good stuff to consider! It gives me a lot to think about next time I do something with OSL!

      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.

      This was a relatively quick (for me) paint job, experimenting with a very limited pallette. It was intended for an encounter in my Ruins of the Grendleroot 5e campaign, but we're having to play online due to the lockdown. I'm sure I can find a use for it in the future though...

      I'm really happy with the faces and the flesh on these little rascals. They also make me one step closer to having the whole 2018 Dungeon Dweller set painted, which is something that I hope to achieve someday, lol.

      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.
