Mini! Human Wizard
Right, so this has nothing to do with crocheting, but I thought I would post it any way! Another hobby I have is repainting my minatures for D&D so that they look at least some what like my characters. Unfortunetly, though WoTC tries very hard to make awesome minis, a lot of them are painted too fast. Plus, for some reason I can never find one that looks like my character, hence my repainting so many of them.
The most recent one I have re-painted is one of an Elf Druid. I repainted her to look like my Human Wizard - Gwen. Gwen was basically zapped into the Elemental Chaos as a young woman after casting a ritual that went very wrong. She lived there for 40 years, fighting for her life and growing in power. etc. etc. etc. Finally, when she figured out how to get home she was in her 60's - but when she got home it was as if only minutes had passed.... Therefore she began her life as an Adventurer!
I wanted her to look a bit odd, strange clothing (for a wizard at least) and also like she lived a hard life. I think that was pretty much accomplished, not my best painted mini, but for a project done in an hour I am pretty proud of it.
The pic above is my mini repainted & the one below is a before picture.
