Witcher: Old World - School of the Manticore

This Witcher from the school of Manticore was somewhat of a challenge for me to paint.  The very dark reference art got me a bit lost on browns on top of browns, on top of browns.  Straps, cords, and bits here and there added to the confusion.  That being said, I eventually got things mostly sorted out into something that looks decent enough to put on the table.  

While I appreciate the extra color the mushrooms add, I'm not sure this particular miniature matches up with mushrooms after consulting the game art which looks a bit arid.  I guess the corpse bits are from some sort of temperate scorpion - or maybe it is a frightener in the game art?  In any case, I still like the look of mushrooms, they fit in the storage slot, and they don't cover up too much of the figure so that is what I went with.
