Khandish Warriors

Of the projects on the table, I figured I needed to start out with the Middle-earth figures, because a) I was feeling rusty, and these figures were simple enough to practice on, and b) I have a game coming up, and I needed them!

I also worked on this NPC magician figure. This was my first attempt at point source light painting technique, and I'm not happy with the result. I'm trying to get the glow from the orb to cast orange light onto the figure's cloak.

I'm going to have to read a few more articles on the technique and see where I can improve this lighting trick.

If anyone has a suggestion of where to go for a good article, please let me know.

'Til next time.

  1. I think that lighting effect looks fantastic. The globe does look a bit like a nice juicy orange, but the glow looks very believable. Perhaps it's a bit strong - which suggests that the figure is surrounded by darkness / underground, but I think it looks very good.
