This isn't Raistlin Majere from the Dragonlance series of books and adventures. Honest. He just looks quite a bit like him!
This is actually Anirion from Reaper but he holds such a resemblance to the complex magician from the Dragonlance books I couldn't resist painting him to match. I didn't quite go as far as giving him pale gold skin but he has similar robes and shares the same white hair and crystal topped staff. I did a lot of blending on the robes both on the red and blue sections prior to adding the gold runes. It started with quite a dark Scab Red then progressed through Blood Red all the way up to Lava Orange, needless to say there were quite a few layers between the three colours.
Once the blue hem was finished I debated whether to add the gold runes or not as I was a bit concerned I'd mess it up and ruin all that blending work but I think it worked ok.
