Dragon Painting Competition WIP

Been working on a few items right now. The main attraction is a piece that has to be finished by the end of next month (July). The theme for the competition is to paint a magician of some sort.

I dug around my Orcs and Goblins army that I haven't painted yet and found an old Night Goblin shaman. After some sketches I decided I would make a small display for the miniature. RiRiWillow mentioned that I should somehow make it so I could use the piece for gaming too. So I made a stone that the goblin stands on that also can be removed and placed onto another base.

A Tiny Taste

The stones and base were made out of Sculpey. After I cooked the clay I whittled it down like a piece of wood, trying to get some neat edges and create a little story for the stones. I based the miniature with a mixture of two types of grain, which will mostly be covered by thick grass. I'll go into more details when the piece is finished. I intend to prime the whole ordeal quite soon.
