"Sword in the Stone" hommage

Recommended Posts

Superb!  Great details, especially all the writing in the books.  I can read most of it, but would like you to share the rest, if you wouldn’t mind.  Your OSL is a very nice touch.  You should definitely find a contest to enter this in, if you hadn’t thought to.

 

I just noticed the goblin holding up the book!  That’s wild.

Wonderfully done and Archimedes is especially nicely detailed.

 

Now might I recommend going and reading the original book? (The Once and Future King" by T.H. White.)

Thanks! I will try to add some more photos about the writing; but most of what's not already on the photos is just gibberish, either because It wasn't gonna be visible or bc... i Just didn't know what to write lol 

On the book leaning on archimedes, its the formula that Merlin uses on a very well known scene on the movie: "Higitus Figitus..."

Thanks! 

I know it, read it, the full series; always felt robbed by that later revision by White that left out Mdme Mim, to be replaced by a new scene with Morgana. It made no sense :(

This is splendid - both the fell and composition with all the details and the execution! It really conveys the way the room looks. Wonderful writing in the books!

I agree with the others: Great scene arrangement, awesome detail s, great contrast and muted colours. You can really focus on the different set pieces without it getting "muddy".

      After going back to Darius and repaint him I decided to do the same with Domur. Like I did with Darius, I'm posting both versions, the first I painted and the current one. I kept both since I had two or three of them.
      For the first one I tried a scheme similar to the official one: on the second, a more conservative fire look. 
       
      First Domur (2018)

       
      2nd Domur

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      In 2018 I got one of my favourite 25th Anniversary miniatures, Darius the Blue. I actually have all three of Darius sculpts, the latest being my favourite too. 
      First I tried to paint it with the same mosaic pattern Reaper used, without any success, so I settled with... kind of a freehand that I didn't like at all and a very excentric color palette. 
      That (in my opinion) failed attempt got stuck on my head and recently I bought another one to paint it again, and I'm a lot happier with the results. This is my only "1 year improvement" pic, and I thought on sharing it here since being the exact same miniature I would love some feedback. 
       
      Here the 2018 version 
       

       
      And the 2019 version that I just finished today

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

      While watching Ks Bones V, I was painting in front of my PC. 
      Here, the second one I painted.
