Sturm Brightblade


Recommended Posts

I picked up some 3d printed Dragonlance models. Totally on brand for me, after all. The first one I'm doing is Sturm Brightblade. He's just got a look I've always liked (and the character grows on you quite a bit in the second book).

 

I figured he'd be a good chance to learn sky and earth non metallic metal. Seems like highly polished metal would suit him. Probably do his shield in the same style as I've seen a lot of Captain America shields when I finally get to it.

Nice SENMM!

Thank you both! First time I've really taken this technique out for a sponge since learning it at Virtual Reapercon. 

 

I managed to get a little more done on my lunch break, chiefly the horns. I also started blocking in the shield. Not looking forward to free handing a kingfisher. Never really gotten the hang of painting birds and it isn't a large canvas. I AM looking forward to doing the radial shiny bits on that. I've seen some killer nmm of that sort and I'm eager to give that a shot.

 

I'll try to get more armor plates done this evening. Totally unclear how much longer he'll take at this point.

 

Always happy to receive criticism and suggestions.

Made a small start on the Brightblade. Two issues: one, the shape of the thing is very flat and is a weird surface to work with. Second: having to paint and blend the backside of it through his legs is going to drive me nuts.

 

The first, I'll just have to fake some shaping (like the bit of shadow on his chin. Fun little trick for adding cleft chins to smooth models). The second will just take care, I suppose.
