Iron Painter 2017 - OSL - "The Dreamer"


"The Dreamer" is a model I painted as a birthday gift for a brother of mine. He's wrestled with sleep disorders (sleep walking, vivid dreams, and night terrors) since he was young and has recently shown an interest in Malifaux. Seems like a perfect match n'est-ce pas?

I've long enjoyed the fantasy of this young boy who shapes and disrupts reality and wanted to use this model to portray that. Every step he takes wrenches the ground free (in the shape of handmade, cork puzzle pieces) and sends nearby objects (twisted wrought iron fence behind him was a model train fence purchased from China, so good as terrain!) writhing away until his passage is complete. I sorta imagine the pieces all settling back neatly into place once he is gone, but I think that is a little bit beyond the scope of a miniature haha!

I look forward to seeing the rest of your creations for round two!

no offence but its way to dark to see anything

No offence taken!

I really appreciate the feedback, and I already knew that I would have to figure out a different sort of "lightbox" for round 2, but I was hoping that this one might not turn out quite so dark.

It was illuminated by *cough* a LED headlamp *cough* haha

this one is so dark. it looks like you put a lot of thought and work into the detail, but it is hard to see it.

Thanks for taking the time to take a good look at it!
