Well, this isn't the prettiest miniature I've painted, but I'd intended it more for practice in getting better at blending and highlighting than to be a fantastic final product, since I think my previous minis tended to have very stark transitions. Thought process and more photos at: link On the whole, while it has room for improvement, I kind of like how it turned out. The blending on the scythe blade could've been better, but I think it's a big step forward from what I was ending up with on previous minis. The white and yellow still jump out more than I'd like, but the greens at least seem to have a nice transition from about end of the notch to the tip. The skin could've used a little more highlighting, especially around the right knee, but at least I was able to get the sort of corpsy/sickly/necrotic look that I was aiming for. I tried to go for a kind of "cast in shadows" look on the face to go along with the hood, and I'm fairly pleased with what it ended up being, though I think the eyes look more like empty sockets than sunken shadows. The ribs are kind of janky, and I'll just have to live with that. I do really like how the cloth turned out, though, looking like a dank and rotten shroud that's been smeared with all kinds of dirt and crap. On the other hand, the base really didn't work out how I'd wanted. I tried to go for a sort of slate look with a dark blue-grey under some lighter bits, but I really needed to either highlight further or to darken/sharpen the recessed edges, if not both. Oh well, as I said, this was basically a practice/experiment piece, and if nothing else, I do feel like I managed to learn a little as I worked on it. C&C welcome. I'd especially love to hear any tips on how I could've gotten more of a "flowing magical construct" look with the scythe blade, as opposed to the current "colored piece of plastic" look.
I have for you two day both a commission ( the dwarf ) and a figure painted by a student ( the Necromancer ). I offer painting classes at my store and this was one of the first minis painted by a student with 0 prior experience I think all things considered she turned out amazing. One of my favorite part of the mini's hobby is getting to make custom bases and even though the base on the dwarf Captain may seem simple I feel it brings a lot to the character and makes them feel like they are on the deck of a ship.
These are a group of vampires I am painting up for Halloween. They include the Reaper Bones figures 77282: Vampire and 77283: Necromancer (painted up as a vampire, because why not), and the old classic Grenadier Set 606 "Vicious Vampires", now sold by Mirliton Miniatures in Italy (I had that set when I was a child, but for some reason I only remember the swoopy-caped male and the little female; the male in the "flasher" pose I remember not at all). The Bones figures are primed with a wash of Reaper's "Brown Liner", the Grenadier ones with a priming of Titanium White and a wash of Burnt Umber, both Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. The Grenadier female vampire is rather uncomfortably tiny, something I dealt with (you'll see).
Adept Legacy posted a topic in Show Off77283: Necromancer Bob Ridolfi I love this sculpt. Hopefully this paint job does it justice. Bone shadowing looks a little brighter than in person. Tricky lighting angles. There are more dark elves to come. I have an army to assemble.... today probably.
