I got a chance to work on Human mage again today.
Finally I decided to start on the base. I was kind of leaving it for the last moment :D
The client asked for the base to resemble a lava pit with some flames and magic ball in the middle.
The ball is a grass bead from craft store. I painted it the same color as Mages outfit.
The base is painted with oil paints. I am very happy how it turned out, now I just have to wait until it dries.
