Thanks guys!

 

I rarely go back to something I called finished.

  2 options guys:

 1 - Freehand something on the scroll, or

 2 - Tell a backstory of frustrated wizard who is storming though the halls from his study to scald his young, and some would say foolish, apprentice for leaving a coffee-turk on the stove that boiled out and spilled the coffee on newly arrived fresh parchment scrolls staining them!

 

Vote now  ::P:

I vote for 3 - Waterslide decals from Ginfritters. And if not on this mini, at least now you know that they exist. 

 

I seldom comment on minis, and only rarely come with suggestions about how to make it better. 

If I do, it means I really like what you're doing, but also want you to take another step forward and produce even more awesome paintjobs in the future.

Brilliant work!

Honestly, I would vote for 2 - but I think you mean scold, not scald.

But keeping it as scald would humor my dark side... :devil:

 

Lolz, there are 2 options we have here.

Option 1 - admit I misspelled it, go back and shamefully correct the word.

Option 2 - Keep scald because Red/White Wizards are no joke man! they will kill you if in the right mood with who knows in what kind of other none scalding ways!

I like your style! Making your own options.

   That is a deal, I will checkout Ginfritters!  :)  Never heard of them before.

Looks great!

 

The scroll could written in moon-letters, and the wizard is just waiting for the clouds to get out of the way. ^_^

 

Exactly! I like this better than scalding! ty

      I am Working on my Adventuring kids. I liked the idea of having these Minis for my Kids.
      Currently it is the thief. Well, my Girls dont like thieves so much, so it will be more something else. We will see.
       
      I startet with some green. Looked a little scary.

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      Here is Lashana, bad-elf female warrior-wizard. I was inspired by a movie I saw recently.  Really enjoyed working with the red and orange colors.  I like how non-traditional and energizing the color scheme is.

      I realize it's not the weekend, but the week was quite busy and I'm happy to have got any of this done at all.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      This little wizard's focus for me was going to be brighter colors and trying to do skin and hair better.  I think it came out pretty well.
       
      Wins:
      *  The base color of red tone and highlighting upward to flesh tone seems to be a good mix.  
      *  Keeping to adjacent colors on the color wheel made for a pleasing, eye-catching combo.  I have to say using the reds, oranges, and browns was pretty fun.
      *  I did as much highlighting and avoiding washes as I could.  This has been my practice over the last number of models I've done.  I don't get how the videos show people just splashing it on for amazing results.  I don't get it, can't seem to do it the same, so I resort to taking more time on starting dark and going light.  Much like Dr. Faust's painting videos.  I've learned much from watching him.
      *  Mixing paints is getting better.  I used like colors to lighten and highlight and I'm getting a better balance and understanding of how they may look really different wet, but getting to know how they dry and differs greatly.  
      *  The eyes worked better going in order of black first, white second, black third.  I was doing a white, black, white and it made the eyes look weird.  @Inarah pushed me to try something different and it's been working better.  
      *  The brown hair with little highlights came out good and I'm trying to be very light in my touch to get subtle look versus stark.  Win!
       
      Misses: 
      *  The staff is okay.  I tried to give it like some kind of weathered look or cool effect at the end, but it just didn't sing like I had hoped.
      *  On the back of his cape, there's a part that I tried shading inf that just didn't look believable to the eye.  I tried to hit it a few times to catch the light and how to lighten the edgest, but it was lost on me.  Fail.
      *The skin on his hand held out has a funny look to it up close.  I tried to bring out some of pads of his fingers and palm, but it doesn't look as good as I had hoped.
       
      Overall it's another win, and I'm happy with the results.
