Nearly caught! (Reaper Ranger #2648)

There's my very first experiment with a light source on this mini by B. Jackson

I decided to go with light-effect painting mainly thanking to Jaycan who suggested me the idea and gave me some useful tips (and a lot of fun, too :-D)

The idea here: this Ranger is chasing some brigands at night and he misses them by few minutes: the campfire is still burning, but they're escaped... A thin wirl of smoke raises from the fire and the embers are still hot and lighting...

He'll catch them next time!

Here i used a little cork to make stones, static grass and sand for the terrain, small branches as branches, small pieces of balsa wood as embers and a very little cotton as smoke. I painted the mini completely, than started with light reflections first drybrushing slightly with orange, than using the same colour with very thinned layers where i drybrushed it before, than repeated the same process with red. Finally, I darkened the shades where fire-light don't shine.

I hope you'll like my experiment, as i'm quite pleased with it!

Comments and questions and tips are always welcome!

Cheers =)

Awesome! Great idea, and very well executed. I love the look in his eyes...

RePost it on a black background. The source lighting is a little strong on the rock to the left (my left) of the fire pit.
