Completed Octavius, The Wizard

    Dear Planeteers,

    I am currently working on this wizard bust by Black Crown miniatures in 1/12 scale. It might appear almost completed, but it is not. I am playing with multiple light sources: a primary (sun) light from above, a secondary (reddish) light beaming out of his spell book, which he holds in his left hand, and a third (blue) light source from his stick from the right next to his hat. There is still a ton of work. The hardest part will be to combine all the different lights in a convincing way. It just have to look right.

    I hope these pictures can better explain the "composition of light" I have in mind for this piece. I am impressed how colourful this bust develops despite the rather dull main colours I used.

    Happy painting and stay safe!

    Beautifully subtle, and those flasks attached to his arm are excellent in their transparency (y)
