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!
