Grenadier Monster Manuscript Vol III: Efreeti

Part of the Seesholtz collection, this is an Efreet (incorrectly called “Efreeti,” which is plural of Efreet.)

Since Efreeti are much larger than humans, I put him on a large base. I used Vallejo White Stone paste to try to texture the base. I discovered, by accident, that using a small putty knife, I could make a spikey texture that would look like flame. So I ran with that. I think maybe I painted the pool of flame incorrectly though; I made the flame tips bright and the pool dark. I think flame is brighter closer to the fuel source, and gets darker and smokier farther away. Oh well.

I’m also a little frustrated with the OSL (Object Source Lighting), which I don’t think I pulled off very well.
