Last shots with the black background, he is getting too dark for it now. Oh how I do love the way it never bleaches reds..
Mithril has been slowly dyed down to a really old bronze with a lot of layers of sepia, chestnut ink, purple wash, and badab black. Each layer was painted on carefully to make sure it pooled around rivets etc to give them extra detailing.
Bronze will get a very thin mithril highlight and a little hand finishing, then it’s time for his mouth and bone/hooves tomorrow. I’m really happy with how he is progressing.
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. Look at the reds Look at the detail on the red Look how fucking gorgeous that shade of red is

I’m not going to sit here and say this artist is so talented that theres no point in me even trying, or that they are blessed to be gifted with such skill, or any of the other things people say when they see work like this that is actually more offensive than they mean it to sound, but I will say this.
When I see someone put out work of this quality, I don’t feel defeated, I feel inspired. I want to work harder and improve quicker and one day be able to create something that makes me think “I did it. I reached the skill level I set as my goal”
Final shot of small Everblight commission, all tabletop standard bar Lylyth who is character.
Great fun to work on, awesome scheme chosen by the owner and I really enjoyed painting these guys. Sealed up with a protective matt layer and the bases should be near indestructible as they are a solid pva/snow mix.
SO MUCH YES!!!!! These look amazing! Best money I’ve spent in a loooooong time. I can not wait till they get here and I get them on the table! this also means I need to get the display case up and ready to go…
Character standard Lylyth to match the big bads posted earlier, she uses the exact same scheme bar with the added bonus of crazy fire hair which really sets her off and gives a tiny bit of contrast colour to the little group of bastids.
She’s still totally open to changes though, PM me and let me know what ya think dude, if you want anything changed inc hair colour, just say so.
Will get group shots soon.
Edit: Oh she also appears to have a hair stuck on the metal part of her cloak, GG SARAH WELL DONE. I’ll remove that now.
That hair looks great! I was really curious to see what you would do with it and I think it looks great. A whole lot better then the gray/black hair that most give her. I can’t wait to get these guys on the table. Oddly enough that hair colour is the EXACT same as the head spines my wife did for my kroot like 6 years ago.
