  1. 77167 - Ingrid, Female Gnome

    I've had these pics on my camera for a few days, and keep forgetting to upload them... Keep getting distracted by other projects, but nothing wrong with that I say... ^_^;;;;; These photos were taken using my previous way of doing things, and I definitely prefer the "newer" way even if it means a bit more work up front, but there's less editing, and my kit lens is a LOT easier to work with for such up close pictures. Kind of can't wait to get that Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro that's on my wishlist, but right now it's a debate between miniature supplies and camera gear, and the camera gear isn't currently on sale, plus we really could use a wider selection of paints in the house, so..... Ingrid was definitely an.... Interesting challenge to paint, to say the least. She has a great deal of smaller details to her, aaaaaand she's pint shot glass sized, which adds to things. Interestingly enough, the biggest issue I kept running into was with her gloves, boots, and especially belt. Cloak also gave some issues, even having me somewhat frustrated at first that my initial shadow layer looked a LOT like vertical red and black stripes, I kept it as it was, and added additional layers on, which seems to have partially corrected itself, but looking at the photos, at the right angles it... Still kind of shows that way. Oh well, we learn as we go, right? This was also the first mini that I attempted something resembling eyes, and I did my best to have it look like she was looking right at the gem itself. It took a few tries, but I managed to get some sort of hazel-brown eye going, although with just the one colour hazel eyes have (not the brown-green mix).
  2. I bought the Learn to Paint Kit 2 some months back and I finally got to paint the 3 minis. I learned a lot from the techniques in the kit and overall I am happy with the results. Group Shot Anirion Ingrid Hajad C&C welcome!
  3. Ingrid the Gnome 77167

    Hello all! I got a lot of advice on the last mini painted and I tried to incorporate it into this one. This one is Ingrid the Gnome from the second Learn to Paint Kit. I really wasn't pleased with how she was turning out, but I think I salvaged it a bit in the end. This is my 4th mini, and it was my first attempt at eyes; it was frustrating and horrible. I tried several techniques, and it took about 4 tries to get them to the state they are in. I stopped fussing with the details, particularly on the base because frankly, I just want to move on. Hopefully it's not a step backwards. Comments and Critiques are greatly desired. Thanks! PS: Once again, I apologize for the poor pictures. I'm going to build a light box soon.
  4. L2PK:2 Ingrid

    I decided to flip through my ReaperCon purchase of the Learn to Paint Kit 2: Layer Up! and was inspired to actually get started... This is the result of a couple of hours of effort. Still working on the shadow stages, but so far I'm a fan of both the instructions, the paints, and my work. I'm not a fan of the brush that came with the kit. According to the instructions, it's supposed to be a size 1, it's a size 0. Not that big a deal... but the fact that it's bristles are splayed out like an abused drybrush? Does not match the quality of the brush I bought at ReaperCon and have been using regularly since.
  5. 77167: Ingrid, Female Gnome

    The Little People January Bones Beauty Pageant inspired me to try to paint some of my halflings and gnomes. This one, 77167: Ingrid, Female Gnome, is now done. I tried to do some OSL to make it look like the stone was really glowing, including between her fingers. I painted the base with lights and shadows. I didn't add anything to her except paint.
  6. Bones rogues

  7. Sammie Two-Drinks

    Here is Sammie Two-Drinks. An NPC for my game. I really appreciate all of the feedback I've gotten from people so far. In the short time I've been participating on this forum, I really feel I've started to improve. Now, I need to go paint a bunch of monster as fast as possible. I've spent too much time on Sammie. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/53732-ingrid-female-gnome-convesion/
  8. I'm gonna try to do a WIP and implement some of the excellent advice I got in my "show off" thread. I run a D&D 4e game for some friends. Since I like painting minis I'm trying to populate their world with a variety of characters. I don't want their poor characters to live in a world where everyone is always running around with swords drawn, so I wanted to add some unarmed NPCs to the campaign. I was thinking about this the other day, and one of my players who is (among other things) a photographer. He had been working doing party pictures and he told me the story of a comely young woman named Sammie who always seemed to have 2 drinks whenever she was captured in his photographs. Reference photos linked below. Warning: these photos are PG-13, but there are some R-rated photos on the site linked. http://jedsblog.com/galleries/let_go_august/content/_1000721_large.html http://jedsblog.com/galleries/2011_indy_500/content/_MG_5149_large.html http://jedsblog.com/galleries/letgo_may/content/_MG_3096_large.html http://jedsblog.com/galleries/fri_13/content/_MG_3560_large.html She was then given the nickname Sammie-Two-Drinks. I thought it would be fun to introduce Sammie-Two-Drinks as a character in our campaign. And the Ingrid I received in my bones Christmas stocking seemed like a good candidate. I used the photos above as "inspiration" more than strict references. Here she is post-conversion, base coated and lined. I'm still struggling a bit with the close up photography but there's not too much detail work done yet. I flipped her arm around and cut off her sword. Then I rolled out a tube of green stuff and fashioned it into a mug. The idea being that the hilt of the sword would become the handle of the mug. I struggle quite a bit with the green stuff, and finally got it "close enough." I also applied a little green stuff to the seam in her right elbow where I reattached her arm. this ended up not being as smooth as I would have liked after the GS cured, so I went back over it with some extra heavy gel. She had what appeared to be a gem in her left hand. I added a neck to it and tried to cut down the sharp edges some. I think it reads like a bottle now.
