Darth Mantis (CMON Contest #4)

My CMON Contest #4 entry, a Sith apprentice. This is the first mini where I've used a cork base, and it's also my first attempt at object source lighting. I even threw in a little NMM on the buckles for good measure. I'm not entirely happy with the sabers, but I've found it's almost impossible to paint a solid rod to really look the way lightsabers do on film. My source lighting method follows Victoria's tutorial in the annual - coloured glazes over a finished paint job. Pre-source lighting paintjob pics are here.

Excellent idea for this figure. The painting looks very well done, but the image quality takes away from the overall effect. I'd consider your first cork experience a success. Nice job.

7.5, Cool conversion. Nice work on the lighting. This is a style I am trying as well. I agree with your comment on the light sabers. I would blend two side of the rod, layers from light (center) to dark outer. Its hard to do on a round object though. Nice work. Cool base also.

gave this a 7.5 (cos I worked out how to do it) - very cool conversion; blending on the sabres could be smoother, but the OSL works very well! Nice one!

Cool, the conversion is incredibly fitting for the miniature. Good job overall, the pics are possibly a bit dark, but help with the atmosphere. Nice base! I think in terms of criticism, the lightsabers look a bit like used lollipop sticks....
