Miniature Monday – Mister Bones
Hey there! What are you doing here? This graveyeard is sacred ground, and trespassers will be… buried!
After some “rest” last week (not really, but, you know… :p) we managed to paint a Mister Bones mini each. Yay!
Dirk chose a classic crypt keeper theme, with bluish greys and browns:
As you see, he used a very limited color palette, which works just great for such a gloomy project. Also note the lighting effect, which is very subtle but a good idea for this mini and its lamp! Dirk used the chance to try some OSL-techniques (mostly a brightness difference between front and back plus a lamplight-colored shine on the cloak here and there) and is happy with the result 🙂
My color scheme is even more reduced (as was my available time), since I painted Mister Bones as a (animated?) stone statue:
As you see, he’s just plain grey stone, grey base with drybrush and washes, plus a quick eye-glow effect… it didn’t take much time but has a nice look to it, I think!
That’s it for this week, but if you have pictures sitting in your phone or on your disk, feel free to mail them! We’ll just update this article 🙂
And to all our readers: What have you been up to lately? Did you have busy days, or are you rather enjoying (or enduring) the weather?
