Sylvaneth Test Model


While taking a break from painting I spent a lot of time playing World of Warcraft. The new Legion expansion featured its own brand of Treefolk which gave me some inspiration. I liked the idea of having a brown or grey barked tree with a red glow bursting through. It was also November and the leaves were turning, so I wanted a nice Autumn look.

At this point I decide that the fingers just aren’t going to work. I’m not yet skilled enough to get a good glow effect going Maybe in the future. For now We’re just going back to brown with the rest of the model.

Overall I wasn’t happy with it. The bark was too dark and the red loincloth leaves didn’t help offset it. The leaves looked alright, but didn’t really pop the way I’d hoped. I could have made adjustments, but I didn’t think it would work well for an entire army. Back to the drawing board!
