Otherworld Warlock

Hi All,

Finally finished another figure.



I decided to try my hand at blending my layers more so it was 3-4 colors blended between each other to bridge the gap. I think I blew it on the robe by being to hasty with the final highlight.

Similarly the flesh doesn't have enough contrast. It almost looks like I just color blocked it in the highlight color. I'm not sure if the blending itself is wrong or if I just slopped the final highlight over the previous layers.

I like how the Bronze mask came out and the ebony staff. I'm particularly happy with the Emerald eyes I painted on. It was a new Reaper metallic paint. Look for it more when i come back around to High Elves in the future.

And I guess I should mention that this is part of a themed thing for a Facebook Group. The Bazaar of Crooked Wonders.

Welcome to new follower Michael Dunnage. He doesn't have a blog listed and was put at the bottom of the list because he doesn't have an avatar picture. Friend Connect is also a little buggy today and I had trouble getting anything but the first page of followers to display.

I'm also in the process of sending off figures to Stevo of Stevo's Mini Soldiers and Orcyboy(Tartar Sauce) of Old Orcs Never Die because I read on their blogs or had a comment back that they could use some figures that are sitting in my leadpile.

People have given me things over the years and I really enjoy paying it forward. I also don't  see the point of holding on to figures that I've had for years and don't see myself ever using or had for a short time and don't have any real attachment to other than to horde.

Anyway, I'm converting another figure and thinking about how I want to paint some others. I need to get on finishing those Boar Boyz for Don. They've been in my possession way too long.

Cheers.

    1. Thanks a lot Blax. I can't take credit for the face mask, that's all Kev Adam's sculpting. I just tried to do a verdigris metal mask effect.
