So I'm in this black metal band, and our mascot is Sam the NecroGnome. As you may have guessed, Sam is a gnome. He's about 3" high, so bigger than the average mini, but with many more possibilities on the paint. I wanted to go with a devilish look, obviously having the main color as black.
Suggestions? Tips? Advice?
When I steal him from the band leader, I'll post some pics (he's been sharpied at the moment).

I would suggest a pale skin tone to contrast with the black clothing this thing will likely get. Consider hair colour too. I think that you should use black on only one part of this thing. If you give it balck clothes and balck hair it will simply be a dark and very uninteresting lump. Grey hair could work or some outlandish colour such as green. On a gnome green may look like friendly forest dweller, that may not fit with a metal band. Blue hair would make it look rather cold. Blue hair and maybe luminous green eyes.
Alright, thanks Leech. I've talked to him a bit more, and he wants a rather limited color palate, which is black and white. He's agreed to let me highlight Sam in similar shades of grey, but other than that, no. We've decided to place a white rune on his back, and I haven't exactly had much practice painting that kind of stuff, so some tips on getting a smooth image would be appreciated.
If you are going to paint a rune like that onto his back an easy way is to paint the white on first. Painting all the black and then trying to get the rune just right is hard. Instead paint the rune on and then use black to correst any errors with how the rune was applied. A small brush can be used for this to apply black over the white where the white is wrong. It is much easier and less streesful to just fix the white rune than try to apply it perfectly.
I'm rather pleased with myself for attempting to paint the rune on his back. Unfortunately, his highlights did not show up as well as I had hoped, but that's okay
I'll probably paint the symbol shown on the earlier photo. Comments on how to make him better would be appreciated.
