  1. I spend less than 2 hours on this guy. He was the practice mini in James Wappel's Advanced Glazing class at ReaperCon this year. The brush that is pictured is the brush used to paint him. Wappel likes using cheap craft brushes since they are affordable and since he gave one that is what I used. This fellow was based and primed whitish by Wappel before class and we spend the class mostly applying glazes or glazes mixed with some thicker colors for things like spots. It was a lot of fun. For those interested in the base, Wappel has a blog post with the process. He also has two posts showing his process on the example minis that he prepainted for the class.
  2. This is an aquatic beast form I'm painting up for a shapeshifting PC. I primed it last year and started painting it last week. My creature had a tendency to topple over backwards, so I glued it to a one-inch fender washer, then primed it with a light brown mixed from Burnt Umber and Titanium White and washed it with thinned-down Burnt Umber (I have since last year changed my priming technique to using straight thinned-down Reaper Brown liner on Bones; much simpler, and obscures less detail). The first thing I did was wash over it with a transparent deep green mixed from Phthalo Green and Burnt Sienna. The color is pretty intense, but it's so transparent it lets the brown show through. I also left the creature brown in some areas. Later I brushed a fairly complex medium green mix (iirc, Phthalo Green, Hansa yellow Opaque, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Iron Oxide, and Titanium White) over parts of the creature, rather roughly, and laid in a sandy yellow color over its base. Later I glazed a very, very little Phthalo Blue (it's a color that overwhelms if one isn't careful) over parts of the creature. Most recently I took a pale mixed green (Phthalo Blue, Hansa Yellow Opaque, and Titanium White) and started laying in more careful highlights and shaping.

    DSM7304 - FEMALE MAGE WITH STAFF

    I thought I'd post one of my RCon entry. Here is Darksword Miniature's Female Mage with a staff. Thanks for any C&C you feel like giving. For those of you attending RCon I hope to see you there.
  4. This is one of numerous aquatic creatures I'm painting for some oceanic-themed adventures. This one is for a PC. He's from the original Bones Kickstarter. He had a serious tendency to fall over backwards, so I glued him down to a one-inch fender washer. I primed him last year (before I seriously took to Reaper's Brown Liner) with a medium brown mixed from Burnt Umber and Titanium White, then washed pure Burnt Umber over him to pick out the details. The first thing I did was wash over him again with a deep green mixed from Phthalo Green and Burnt Sienna. Then I mixed a paler green from that with an addition of Hansa Yellow Opaque, Yellow Iron Oxide, and Titanium White, and brushed it lightly over the creature as a sort of basic highlight placement. I also washed over the base with a sandy yellow color.

    Kyrie, Female Barbarian (01531)

    The first of my 12-Days bonus minis to see paint. Julie Guthrie's Kyrie, Female Barbarian. Totally beautiful sculpt. I had a blast with her and was glad I didn't ruin her (any worse than I did, lulz). More of my home-cooking flesh tone on her. I decided to run her to the pale side. Seemed fitting. I tried real eyes, and they turned out terrible. I was pretty happy with how her fur turned out. Thanks for looking. All feedback welcome.

    92621 Bear Familiar

    This little fella was a ton of fun. I chose him to practice fur, I'm reasonably pleased with it. The base is from secret weapon. Very nice bases. As always comments and criticisms welcome.
  8. The title says it all I decided to try sheer cloth. I have wanted to try some since I took Rhonda's class for Painting Sheer cloth at Gen Con two years ago, but haven't felt brave enough to actually do it. Well if I want to get better I have to try more things, so here we go. Since this is new to me I figured I would post a WIP for advice and encouragement. Not to mention if I completely mess it up (which I likely will) maybe someone can learn from my mistakes. I already had Sleeping Beauty primed and ready to go I managed to prep her back in January. So last night I painted up her flesh. While my flesh tones were still in the palette I blocked in her sheet with flesh. Here are the photos which since it isn't actually showing any naughty bits I hope they are ok to post. So tonight I grabbed her and glass of wine, and took a photo in true Dontfear fashion. Then onto painting some cloth color. Since I used Burgundy Wine for her skin shadow I felt it would work for her cloth as well and Auberon's Dark Sword Sorceress inspired me to use purple. I mixed in a touch of pale violet and a tiny bit of linen white for the base coat and then took to blocking it in. At this point I googled purple sheer lingerie to get a feel for how purple looks against the skin and took my basecoat and mixed it with fair skin. With a fairly thinned down paint I used this to cover the skin parts to make it look as if a layer of fabric was over it. After this step it figured I better try to blend my mess so I mixed a few steps in between and also a higher step with linen white added to try to bring out the flesh parts a bit more. Here is as far as I got with her tonight. She needs more blending around the flesh parts then I am hoping working shadows and highlights onto the purple will help convey the look of sheer as I am worried now the cloth just looks highlighted rather than sheer. Thanks all for reading and hopefully helping me on this journey of sheer cloth.

    Tiik Champion

    03354: Sarah the Seeress, Feb 2015

    Hi again all, Just sharing Sarah, painted by me over the last few weeks. Tried out a simple light box to get a better shot than Agramon (cardboard box version from the link in the Shutterbug forum). I guess we need a better camera. She is sitting on a plastic shot glass (what we mount things on to paint them) simply to fit the angle of the camera better. I must give a shout out to nomad_grrl for the method on the crystal balls. Primer, Sky Blue and a coat of metallic medium was the trick. Thanks in advance for any feedback etc. Cheers!

    Kyrie, Female Barbarian

    I tried to use Rhonda Bender's excellent paint job as a guide for my version of Kyrie the Female Barbarian which was a special edition mini from the RAC. I acquired her during the 12 days of xmass. I still have no idea how Rhonda manages to paint those itsy bitsy eyes! Without further rambling I give you my lame attempt at this lovely mini from Julie Guthrie! Comments are always appreciated!
  14. Next up, an old Grenadier mini from the Julie Guthrie's Personalities line. I really love this mini. I wish I could've done it more justice. I imagine this guy as a dragon slayer, for whatever reason. The grungy sort, though, rough and perhaps of noble connections somehow but rather crude. Mean. Not much better than an evil dragon, perhaps. I gave him a mustache. It looked like he was supposed to have a mustache. Anyway, second attempt at basing. Used some flock LittleBluberry sent me in my Secret Sophie package and some rocks I'd gotten a while back. Super simple, but yeah. Thanks for looking!

    14528: Rageclaw Slayer

    My Rageclaw Slayer. For some reason I wanted a black lupine in shining armor.
  16. I was photographing something else yesterday. The something else ended badly. I was documenting it. Anyway, the Fire Elemental was nearby and the lighting setup looked promising so I let the camera have a try even though the LFE is notoriously hard to photograph. The Raw Image My phone has a small app on it from Adobe, and it has a selection of preset "effects" filters it can apply. I tried several, saved a few that looked fiery. The Filter That Looked Like Lava A Kind of Spot Lighting? Similar to Above But Darker Hope these are at least fun to look at or maybe inspiration if someone is wanting to paint fire.

    77190: Nethyrmaul the Undying

    Well, here's the big Dracolich from Reaper. His base is a CD- I sculpted some rocks to match the rocks that the mini was already standing on. I'm really quite fond of this mini- dragons and zombies go together quite well,a nd his rotting flesh was a real joy to paint. You might not be able to tell from the photos, but the red areas are glossy, making him seem more fresh. Also, I posted him to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.

    72moonglum's vacation WIP

    Hi all, so today is my official first day of a two week long vacation. Where my wife works she has to take every year two weeks straight and I'm more than happy to accompany her in those two weeks of non-work, AKA vacation. My wife's sister and a friend have come to visit this year and we're going to spend five days in Estes Park but the rest of the time we'll be home, so I'm also going to try to get as much painting done as possible, mostly before everybody wakes up or when the ladies go shopping. One of the things that happened was our spare room is being used, where I normally paint, so I've been sent to the dungeon otherwise known as the basement, unfinished and with only one electrical outlet.

    Ral Partha Chimera

    So finally got the base finished tonight for this great Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties. I'm kind of miffed about the actual base, it's one of those transparent red Wyrd bases. When I went to the game shop, they didn't have any this size in black, so I had to grab red, prime and paint over it. Anyhow, this is I think the last in my series of leonine beasts. I've done now two lions, two manticores, and this chimera. I think I'm going to give the lions a rest for a tad. Anyway, hope you enjoy him, took a few pictures! Thanks, Mark
  20. So I'm considering in the near future painting an old Ral Partha chimera sculpted in the eighties by sculpting goddess Julie Guthrie. Here's my dilemma: should I paint each piece of the beast according to its natural color ( lion part tawny brown, goat black/white/grey, and dragon red/green) or do I take an approach where I would paint the whole figure red with a black mane? Opinions from the peanut gallery would be extremely welcome! Thanks, Mark

    Ral Partha lion and lioness

    Hi all, So here are the last two I've painted up, to nice little lions sculpted way back in around 1982 ( or at least that's what the bottom of them say ) by painting legend and goddess Julie Guthrie. I'm kind of on my lion- colored kick with my manticore before these and the next one is my chimera also by Julie Guthrie that I'll be trying to finish up next. The bases were literally one millimeter too big to actually set on one of the middle-size bases, so I ended up putting them on large bases. I really did just a quick bit of dirt and grass, didn't want to bother with any stones or anything like that. I ended up finding that the poor Winsor and Newton Series 7 size two brush that I'd given up for detail work works really nicely for base coats and bases and general coverage, so that's inspiring. Anyway hope you enjoy them! Mark

    Harpy

    I painted this Reaper Bones harpy as a quick fun mini for gaming. Hence no fancy base, and very simple metals, etc. I didn't even carve off the mold lines (though I probably should have done at least that!) She's topless, so here's a link to more photos on my website.
  23. Here is my version of the Bones Harpy. This is my second artistic effort in the past 14 months and I'm working hard to shake off the dust. Input always appreciated. Please scroll down a few posts for links to the other images!

    Ral Partha Clerics

    So it seems like it's taken forever, but I've finally got these all finished. Upon retrospect, I should have probably used less grass on the bases, but oh well, too late to cried over spilled grass.

    Ice Eye Beast

    Project: Ice Eye Beast Reaper SKU #: 77043 Sculptor: Julie Guthrie WIP Thread So I failed to enter this guy in the contest by a few days, but I still wanted to put him up for everyone to take a gander at. He was pretty rushed (and not my best work) as I was trying so hard to get him into the contest before the deadline, but the basing of him took longer than I expected. Anyhow C&C are welcomed and appreciated.
