This figure is next on the agenda.  I cleaned up mold lines, cut off the “base” part of his integral base, washed him and mounted him on a Reaper 1 inch base.

Managed to get him looking somewhat like he is looking where his hand is.

This is the stage that can be frustrating.  When I am checking the outfit, this wizard has lots of layers.  His right arm has 6 distinct layers: Glovelet, bracelet, billowy sleeve, outer cinched sleeve, strap, and cape.  Ugh!

 

Painted a base of Stormy Grey on the beard.

Now I’m using a Life Line to poll the audience.  I painted the cape Oiled Leather in an attempt to use it as a good shadow color to build up a rich bright orange.  But it is less brown than I thought and much more desaturated (I think that is the term for when it goes on looking pastel or washed out).

I wanted to do something with him that I haven’t seen others do with a bright orange cape.  BUT this color keeps whispering to me to try a Sunset Sky-to-Twilight blend.  I have seen some cool ones like that, but haven’t ever tried it.

 

So, what do you all think?

I like your choices of colors on him, gives him a kind of 70s-80s animation vibe. 

Thanks, I can see what you are talking about.

A little more progress.  This enough base coating to start working up individual sections.
