Beautiful OSL. Both the lava and the spell effect look very convincing. I also love the skintone of the demon and his expressive slit eyes.

 

The only suggestions I have is to make the centre of the blue spell "hotter", so almost pure white, to make it look more like an energy sphere.

Thank you very much! 

 

That's totally the area I was most struggling with-- the color on the spell effect.  The object itself is largely Blue Flame with drybrushing of various cyans.  I wanted to create a "heart" of the effect, like the hot part of a fire. 

 

The problem (AFAICT) is that if the spell effect is a sphere (it isn't, but pretend), then I could paint the sphere's "center" as viewed from the front of the mini.  But then if I turn the mini in either direction, the "apparent center" moves, and what I painted now looks like a surface instead of the center.

 

Is there a trick to making this look realistic on a three-dimensional object, but still be viewable from different angles?

Love what you achieved with the osl on this,  both from the rock,  and from the lava!

      The current center-piece of my Demonic Army, a Balrog "Balor." 
       

       
      This is "Errtu, Balor" from the Legend of Drizzt D&D Board Game.  I painted him up about a year ago and he was one of the first huge minis I ever attempted.  There's a lot that I wish I'd done better looking back on it, but you have to make mistakes to get better!

      Here's a simple one for you today.  Filling out my Demonic Army, we have a Barlgura, represented by an Ape Demon (77260).
       

       
      He seems a little small, but it works.  Painted him up quickly the evening before a game sometime last winter.

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?

      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.
