  1. Ok, I didn't get as much done today as I had hoped. One, I am slow. Two, my friend and I decided we needed to go to FLGS and browse the paint section. To be fair, it was his idea. He was out of Soft Tone and I nearly was so it was an excuse to go have a look. $75 later (my part was only $12 Ha!) and lunch and we were back to painting. Anyway, the sorceress is nearly finished. I need to highlight the gold and the rocks and then I think she is finished. Her skin is (all paints will be P3 unless noted) Khardic Flesh Base with a touch of Army Painter Green mixed in. For shading I use Idrian Flesh with Vallejo Cam Olive Green mixed in. Just a touch, you don't want it looking green, just a subtle olive tone. For first highlight I use Midland Flesh with a tiny amount of AP Army Green again. For highest highlight I add a smidge of Mennoth White Highlight to my highlight color. She has some soft details and I spent a lot of time looking at other people's work to try and figure out what some stuff was. I like bright colors so my adventurers will probably be in pretty bright colors. I didn't want to go with a traditional hair color so she got ombre teal and purple which I thought complimented her clothing. I am not a fan of her giant hand. I plan on making a spell effect and adding that to her hand. I like her hand better now that she is painted than before but still, I think a spell effect will look cool. The archer....well, he didn't get worked on today so he is still just base coated except for his skin which is done. A couple things on him (scabbard, arrows) have only a wash on them so I could see them better. Having never attempted to paint a drow before, I didn't really have any idea so I winged it. My recipe for his skin is as follows: Base - 2 parts Coal Black, 1 part Reaper Clear Purple (09099); Shade - as above + Thalmar Black; Highlight - Add Mennoth White Highlight. If anyone wants to know what colors were used for any of their clothing, let me know and I will list them. Here are photos of where these two adventurers were left for the day. C&C welcome! Edit* Tried to do 2 posts with all the photos but it automerged so took out the sentence saying the archer photos were in next post. Ha!
  2. Wait, this is your first completed mini? What does that mean exactly? He is very nicely done. Nice skin tones, good shading and I like the axe too! Well done!
  3. Wow! He's beautiful! The colors are so vibrant! Ok...so if you don't usually paint people and he turned out so incredibly well, what do you usually paint? He is very nicely done, one to be proud of. Welcome to the forums!
  4. Lovely colors and the cloak's shading looks very nice!
  5. Wow! He's beautiful! Love the colors and the eyes are really nice!
  6. I am so sorry! Not sure how I missed your question. Everything is painted by brush, I do not have an airbrush or would I know which end was up with one! I don't think I used anything larger than a size 3 and that was for blending. Most detail stuff was painted with a size 2 with a nice sharp point. I have started working on the adventurers. So yay! I have basecoated the archer and the sorceress. They may be finished tomorrow as I am taking them to paint day. I wanted diversity in my group so am trying to use different skin tones for each figure. The archer is a Drow, the sorceress has a Mediterranean skin tone, the rogue will be Asian, the dwarf....well, I am having trouble with him actually, maybe tan caucasian, and the warrior/pally will be light skinned with red hair and beard. After the people are finished, I start on the dragon. I have been looking at lizard pictures for reference and have picked a few that I like so we'll see. I will try and get some photos of the people on here, hopefully tomorrow when I get home!
  7. He looks great! Love your color choices!
  8. I may use some of your color scheme on mine whenever I finally get my Bones 3. I never intended on painting her blue anyway and I love how yours turned out. She is absolutely gorgeous!
  9. That is super disgusting! I like your color choices. Really makes the grossness gross!
  10. Love the little pinstriped jacket! He is cute as can be!
  11. Blood & Plunder

    Those are really cool minis and you paint beautifully! They are lovely. Welcome to the forums!
  12. Nice choices for each pattern. They look great!
  13. I am going to have to take a miss on this one. Having some health issues that will hopefully be resolved so I can do Fall or at least Secret Sophie. I will still peek in to look at everyone else's goodies! Have fun!
  14. Love the face!
