  1. That's awesome. If more people watch Ronja because of this thread then I have done my job.
  2. Yes, thanks for the extra info! Those stories may be out of fashion in the outside world, but not in our house. I vaguely remember reading Pippi Longstocking as a kid, but I don't think it really grabbed me. Though I think it just might appeal to my very independent-minded daughter.
  3. Cool! The jar looks like it's filled with a pinkish liquid, how did she get that effect?
  4. The skin, headdress, and the freehand on the cloth are all superb! The spell effect doesn't really stand up to the rest of the piece though. Compared to all the colorful parts it just looks unfinished.
  5. Nice verdigris, especially for a speedpaint. What color is that coppery orange? It doesn't look metallic.
  6. I haven't used cork before, but lately have been having a lot of success with a combination of bark and filling in gaps with putty and clay (green stuff & sculpey).
  7. What can I say, I know how to steal a good thing when I see it :)
  8. What a cool and unique model. The OSL looks great, at least from the angles you show here - it looks like glossy specular reflections from the metal of the cauldron.
  9. My family and I recently watched a lovely tv series called Ronja the Robber's Daughter. It was co-produced by studio Ghibli and based on a novel by the author of Pippi Longstocking. It was a really sweet show, thoughtful and gentle, with a strong young female protagonist. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyway, one of the antagonists that featured prominently were harpies, and I really liked the design. Here is an example: So I was inspired to try to reproduce it with my own harpy. Unfortunately reaper's version is not suitable for the board due to bare breasts, but I can include some pictures from the back, and a link to a 360 degree view: Here is the NSFW LINK to the 360 degree view. Comments welcome and appreciated!
  10. Also, just because I can, here is a 360 degree shot that shows her off a bit better (though the face is in shadow)
  11. Beautiful metals, what's your recipe?
  12. Adorable! I like the way you highlighted all the little gems. I second the request for some closer pictures.
  13. Is that a good thing? I'm pretty sure if you said this to her face, Mari would challenge you to a duel :)
  14. Well I am not an expert by any stretch. But I painted a kilt pattern on my storm giant with some success, and that is not too unlike what you're doing here. What I did was to first paint and shade the background color with washes layering etc. Then I blocked the freehand pattern over top (this took a lot of passes because it was red over blue). I may have done a dark wash at this stage to sort of tie the two colors together and make the shadows match up. Then I added highlights to the pattern. There were a couple of "oops" moments along the way, though not as many as you might expect -- you just have to be willing to go back and fix them up.
