Hosilla by Andantonius Hosilla by Andantonius
Here's a character I did for Pathfinder RPG by Paizo Publishing! Since Adventure Paths 73 and 74 have been released I can show them now and will be posting a couple a day for the rest of this week! :)

Despite being a simpler design, I think this is one of my favorites from the set. In contrast to the Baphomet Cultist, with this one I played with a much more traditional process, starting with a textured canvas, painting loosely on top, gradually refining, and painting the white background over top of it all at the very end, and there's some things I really like about the little hints of texture it left across the character.

How did you do the chainmail? it came out really well, but it seems like a fool's errand to do it all by hand.

It's a mixture of textures and hand-painted. I used a texture to create the pattern of chainmail shadows, then duplicated it and warped it in to perspective numerous times until I covered the whole surface of the chainmail. Then the rest was hand-painted using dodge, burn and opaque painting to render the form and create some variety and texture to it so it wasn't so sterile looking.

Man, that sounds intensive, but it really looks good.

Very cool on all counts. Though I'm curious, what would you call that weapon? Reminds me of Loki's Chitauri sceptor. Light halberd? Battle spear?

Thanks! And the weapon is a Glaive with some extra embellishment for cool factor. =P

I would deem it a light halberd =)
