Reference, Parts, and Unpainted Sculpt

I got off to a very good start with this due to the excellent work of a sculptor called Joey Callaghan. But I wanted to improve a couple of aspects. I wanted the ice-like horns and more glowing eyes, and the slightly Voldemort-y shape of his nose and mouth. So I used crystal shards and a bit of resculpting on the face and armour.

It was very tricky to make the eyes look glow-y. Not perfect, but I got a decent effect with silver paint pen, some pale blue paint on top and a black pen dot. I used clear nail varnish on the eyes to make them more reflective. I also used it on the horns to give the icy wet look.
