I'd like to begin by saying Thank You to everyone who stopped by and commented on my post yesterday. That first post back with a figure was an important one for me and I am touched that you took the time to welcome me back and to encourage me to continue to paint. As a painter, a sense of shared community has come to mean a great deal to me.
Today I have another figure for my story "The Wyrm of Connemara". His name is Dez for my friend at The Hollywood Spy and his role in the story is Top Secret. I will reveal this much, he's on the Irish side of things.
He's from Dark Sword, is 32mm scale and was sculpted by Jeff Grace.
I remember my initial frustration with painting the folds on cloaks. The struggle to find the mid-point between the low points and the high points was a difficult thing for me. I think I have finally achieved something I can be pleased with on this cloak.
I also tried to improve my freehand skills by painting a pattern on the hem. While not perfect, it is more complex than the last scrollwork I did.
Finally, this figure has a twin. I have painted this figure twice, one as you see here all light and bright and another, darker version. I'll get around to posting his twin sometime in the future and will post them side-by-side.
Well folks it's Tuesday and in Bloggerland, that means a slow and quiet day. So kick back and enjoy the day. I know I will.
