Ice Ice Baby...

Here they are, my contribution to the Song of Baldes and Heroes Backlog Challenge on LAF. I think these turned out well. There are a few things loft to do. I want to string the bows and hit a few area with an extra highlight. I tried to keep the palette cool with a lot of blues and cooler grays.

I decided to sculpt some masks for the ice demons. I really like those Ral Partha orcs. They are easy to paint but are not too ridiculous in their proportions. I may go back and add some tattoos.

Here is a closeup of some of the characters. I'm still practicing source lighting on every figure I paint. I think the lighting on this one is a lot more subtle than my previous attempts. I think the trick is to use thin layers of paint that shade the existing painting, rather than covering it up.

  1. Really nice work :) I compliment your painting abilities and the theme of these figures. Makes me a little jealous.
