Added three levels of highlight to the faces and I'm not sure they look much different here. Might be a bit too subtle, I'm often too cautious with contrast.

Not 100% sure about the brown dirt here, I think it'll break up the grey a bit but I'm not 100% sure that's what I want. I'm going to splash it onto the mountain diorama and see what I think of the overall look.

Cliff face work in progress. I think a lot has been done since I last showed a picture of this!

 

Left hand picture is after adding in the brown dirt colour, it's fairly unobtrusive with the unifying grey-brown drybrushing over the top of it.

 

Right hand picture is with some bare trees and non-giant critters added. There are six live animals in total, can you spot them in this picture?

 

Next step is to break out the tufts and clumps and lichen and add some more plant life and colour to the scene.

Looking good!

I can see 5 out of 6 critters for sure, and have a good guess about #6.

 

If you think you can see one near the middle, then you probably can... 😉

I think this is pretty much finished! I could go on adding plants forever without substantially changing anything, so I've stopped. I will go over it and touch up a few flaws and gaps, and I might paint the outside "cut off" edges in black to tidy it off.

 

Quite hard to photograph because of the size and depth of it, lots of shadows. If you'd like to see any particular detail in close up let me know!

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.

      Hey everyone, here's another sarcophagus I painted for an upcoming D&D session. This one is the 77632, Sarcophagus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

      Hey everyone, here's a two-piece model I painted for my current D&D campaign. Strongly attached to the Halloween theme 77540, Large Sarcophagus sculpted by Kevin Williams. A place of eternal rest, unless there are ghouls around.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.
