I'm no expert, Oberst, and I'd guess everybody approches painting differently. I would do what you feel more comfortable with. Personally I'd go with painting everything and then do the source lighting. It's easier on my brain if I can see what colors I'm going to be lightening up for the effect. Also remember that the back view of him (where the magic light is blocked by his body) will be painted normally. Good luck!

I'd do the normal painting first, then source lighting on the parts that need to get lighted.
A few things to consider:
- keep the overall model fairly dark, it's easier to paint lighting on a dark model.
- don't overdo it, sometimes you see source lighting where a small light source illuminates half of the model, ruining the effect. It's easy to get carried away like that, here's one of mine where I went a bit overboard, especially on the chest area. :blush
- keep your reflected lights darker than the original light source, or at most equally as bright.

Good luck! :cheers

@Acid Burn: 1) The fingers are plastic rod chopped to bits to form the fingers. I used a Black Orc gauntlet, but those are all with fists closed, so I had to chop, and drill a bit to get the "open hand " feel. 2) The GS ball is indeed Waaagh energy, to represent his Zaaap/ Frazzle ability. I've started to paint t yesterday, hopefully it will become more distingable when I'm close to finishing. Thanks for your comments all :cheers

Well he's more or less close to a finished state now. Things that still have to be done though:

-Highlights in some areas, like gauntlets, beard, and uvva places...
-Flock with static grass
-Other stuff that you gits suggest(Destroying my model or mailing to somebody doesn't count :P)

I enjoyed the "source lighting" thing a lot. It's something new to add to character models and adds a new dimension to my usual painting technics.

On to the pictures.

i think the source lighting on the bottom of the hand is great. but the source lighting on and around the face is too "thick", i dono, it needs to be softer

Green source lighting on green skin'll be hard to nail, but I really really love what you've done with the poor sod! :)

Yeah,it's indeed hard to represent Green light on green skin, so I had to give it a harder contrast. In the beggining I toyed with the idea of giving him some kind of "red energy" but discarded the idea, as proppa Waaagh energy is always green(IMHO of course)

Thanks for the comments ladz!

Schön! As thick as the source lighting on his face might be...it still portrays your intentions. all I would do is feather out the edges with some really thin color. Other than that I would leave it alone. The hand, head, and staff are all wonderful, as is his aggitated pose :) :thumbs Nice n proppa job.

Yes, the light source on my face needs toning down and spreading out a little. Also the light on the mettle bits should look a bit brighter than the light on my skin. Whenever I summon raw warp-stuff the light always seems to shine more brightly off of mettle gubbinz. Whats up with people using my name for their models? This is the third time in 6 months :lol

I used yer name because it sounds suitably crazy enuff for a Wierdboy. Of course it's a tribute to yer person! ;) Thanks for the great comments, i'll try to smoothen the edges of the lighting a bit, but won't be edxpanding it, as thelight would be reflected on a lot of places and I don't want to screw it up.

A couple of comments. Firstly, watch out for larger than lifesize photos of models; unless you're painting at golden demon standard I find that these almost always make your painting look worse than it is. Regarding the painting, I'd recommend getting a very thin black line painted/finelinered on between the orange beard and the face. It'll help define both areas, and solve the problem of "which colour do I end where?".
