Skull and Sorcery

This is another one of those figures that you run across which has been hidden behind something on a shelf for years.  A little while ago I finished off this half painted figure from Dark Sword Miniatures.

In addition to having fun with the marble and the object source lighting, I treated myself to a touch of freehand.

I thought that the curved lines of the freehand would help pull the veins of the marble up into the cloak, adding some interest.

These types of details are much easier to accomplish when you have finely sculpted and cast figures, which Dark Sword will always supply.  That's why they are a favorite of mine! :-)
