I ve been working on a bright wizard for a short while now, trying my hand at some osl for the first time. The WIP is all shown below and the model is now at finishing touches stage and painting the display base. Please let me know what you think and what needs to be improved. You can vote on cmon for a WIP shot here if you like...
Not great photos by any stretch and of course it looks much better when you hold it in your hand, but thoughts and comments along with any tips would be appreciated.
Improve? What exactly? The bright wizard is marvelous, marvelous I say!
Keep up the good work and waiting to see more of your work!
How many days/weeks has this wizard took off your life?
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I am really liking your flame effects. The blending is great and the colors are awesome.
I guess the only place I would comment on would be the robes, they are very well done, but if you could deepen the colors of the shaded areas(folds) a bit more to bring it out some more it would give a little more depth.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Really nice! Only thing that bothers me is that the flames seems to be going in a wierd direction... Feels like they should point upwards...
Yeah I agree with the watcher, the flames look weird. Otherwise that's a brilliant paint job, especially as it's your first attempt at that style.

The only complaint I have is the cloud thing...it just doesn't look right to me. Otherwise, good job.
looks fantastic the highlighting is top notch, however the cloak looks odd to me, but thats probably because i dont like yellow, anyway great job!:happy:

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. I have continued painting this trying to touch up here and there where I'm not happy. The base is actually a stone/lave base and not smoke, although it does resemble smoke a little from the photo. The shape is slightly odd owing to the fact i wanted the square base to fit inside it but i have adjusted the sculpt a little to make it seem less squarish. As to the sword flames it is painted technically correct and I dont see the problem with the way the gw sculptor has made the flames they could be sculpted in any direction really. The hottest part (ie along the blade edge) is white and it goes into darker red and black at the bottom. I read in an article somewhere on fire painting that people have been painting flames upside down. Im pretty pleased with it, it has taken quite a while to do as i am a slow painter but that doesn't bother me too much as I am still very much a beginner with alot to learn. I'll put out some more photos fairly soon.
I'm not botherd with the colours of the flames, just the fact that they seems to be dropping down instead of flming upward, as a flames usually does... But if it's sculpted that way... Well then it's GW's sculptors that need to play some more with fire, to see how it actually works. But then again... He is a wizard...
