Monday Miniatures: Damien
How appropriate that the week of Halloween we should find ourselves painting. Painting a demon, well – hellborn wizard, whatever that is. Thank you for all the suggestions that were put in the comments last week. I’m running terribly short on time this weekend, and will add them to next week’s post.
I thought red would have been a popular (if cliché) color scheme this week, but was only half right. I decided I wanted Damien to match the succubus we painted in the early part of the year. I am particularly happy with how the staff came out. When I couldn’t make the yellows pop, I went with a white highlight and a yellow glaze to knock it back down.
Arjen split the difference between the color scheme Dirk and I used. I really like the palate, and think he had great results considering the limited time he spent painting this week as he was ill.
Grognard is just showing off here. I mean, look at the blending on that cloak, or subtle color highlights on the staff and necklace. Just out of curiosity Grognard, how much time did you spend on this mini?
Dirk never misses the opportunity to do some freehand painting, check out the epaulets on this guy; he not only stole my jacket color scheme, he one upped it! I love the blotchy effect of the skin on this guy. Dirk has somehow managed to make pink and purple look sinister.
