    An ax grinder, a pile driver

    Knocked out my first Dark Sword figure as a commission for a friend. It's also my first try at sketch style.

    DSM5012 Lannister Lady in Waiting

    DSM5012 Lannister Lady in Waiting sculpted by Tom Meier. I'm not sure how long this one was on my shelf of shame. I had originally intended to attempt a sheer fabric effect. Once I got the basic skin tones done, I couldn't figure out her eyes and she got abandoned. Because I am forcing myself to clear my shelf of shame, I went looking for other finished versions of her. Turns out, her eyes are closed and she has long eyelashes. I put my effort on this one into blending on the orange dress, her skin and her hair.

    Desert Ranger: Dark Sword Female Ranger

    This was my entry in the Miniature Monthly End of Year Competition. It is a beautiful sculpt that was fun to paint. I had to do a desert theme due to playing Assassin’s Creed Origins inbetween painting sessions and I couldn’t get the light brown with blue color scheme out of my head. I am really happy with her skin although her left thigh looks really flat in the photo. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    DSM5075 Margaery Tyrell

    Darksword Margaery Tyrell DSM5075 sculpted by Tom Meier. I struggled with this miniature quite a lot. She was on my painting desk for several years. The reduced size photos make her look a lot better than she really is, so I've added a closeup of the face so you can see where I had challenges with details and blending. Comments and criticism would be gratefully accepted.
  5. This little guy is going to a friend. The example on the Dark Sword website has his hat as a weird helmet and the dagger as metal. I saw the hat as a silly hat, and the dagger as a pair of porcupine quills. I attempted to get the fur/prickles roughly accurate for a hedgehog, which means that the back has really severe shading - the base is dark on their prickles, but with pale tips. I also freehanded a little slogan on the hat strap. Oh! And his knapsack strap only extends across his front. No cloak for it to be under in the back.... and there was no strap. So I attempted to green-stuff a back strap for his bags so that it made sense. He was fun and cute.

    Tiny Cherub by Cyr

    While I was sick, I was painting some stuff that wouldn't stress me out. I am not all that into cherubs and the like, but Sir Cyr's mom will love this little guy. I used him to practice painting pale colors (pillow and wings). Not totally happy with the wings, but whatever. He's about 1/2 the size of a standard figure, being a seated kid. I was having trouble with photos today. So.... meh. Whatever on that!
  7. Rescued from my shelf of shame. WIP is here: Glenraven WIP Any comments, criticism or suggestions are welcome.
  8. Darksword GlenRaven - Female Rogue with Sword and Dagger DSM3103 Dennis Mize. Any comments, criticism or suggestions will be gratefully accepted. Continuing with my exploration of lighting, I have retrieved GlenRaven from my shelf of shame and I am sending her striding across a grassy knoll at sunset. I had already added the skirt a few years ago when experimenting with greenstuff. First step in rescuing her was to repair the base (I previously tried and failed to remove her) and build a slight hill. Next I marked where I wanted the light to be coming from. The top of the arrow on the cork is aligned with a mark on her base. When I have visually lined up the mark and the arrow, I am looking at her from the lighted direction, which I find helps me be more consistent with light direction. Then I marked the shadow position the same way. And viewed from the front you can see where I have marked all the shadows in a first coat of walnut brown. I also did a very light wash of oxford blue to bring out some of the fine details. Then the eyes, which were very tough to paint. I'm not totally happy with them and may yet repaint them. They are far too big and incorporate both the sculpted eye and her upped cheek. I am finding them very hard to get at. I made lots of progress on the colours tonight. I have added the deepest shadows on the back of the cloak and the back of her hair. I've highlighted the skirt and boots, but I think they need to be brighter and yellower. I haven't yet shaded/highlighted the flesh tones because I want them to match the colour and brightness of the other lighted areas when the sunset colours are added in.
  9. Taan#3 DSM1203 by Clint Staples combined with face and tail of Ral Partha Animals Puma from Ral Partha Wild Animals Blister Pack. A player character litorian for a game set in Monte Cook's Diamond Throne Campaign Setting.
  10. So when my PC found a magic torch, of course I had to have a new miniature for her. This was for the same character I posted as Hosilla earlier. Hosilla converted to archer. She eventually came to a bad end... as I will show you shortly.

    Deadly Grace: Dark Sword Elf Warrior

    Finally got around to taking photos of my ReaperCon entries for 2017 and this was one of my entries in the Painter's category. This is Dark Sword's Female Wood Elf Warrior and I wanted to paint this one up for a long time but could not decided on what color scheme to use. All I knew was that I wanted to do something different than what you would expect for a wood elf but I did not know what. It finally came to me, use mainly purples and greys and make her a drow. After determining that, the base plan came to me pretty quickly, place her in a cave with natural crystals and spiderwebs. The webs were created using UHU glue. She ended up being my entry that was judged for that category and I was very pleased to receive a gold medal. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    DSM Sitting Mage

    I managed to finish this miniature just before I left for RCon 17. While she wasn't the one that got judged, I though she came out ok. Though the photo not so much.

    Critter Kingdom figures

    It all started with a D&D group forming. That's when I started up the painting minis in June. And having trouble finding figures that we felt represented our characters, I opted to have some fun and use some anthropomorphic Dark Sword critters. Plus, I admit I was a little scared of doing human faces on my first go. What they represent in our game, from left to right - A Half Elf warlock, a Goliath warrior, an Elf swashbuckler, and a Dragonkin cleric of Talos. And the badger's weapon is a conversion because the original mace head broke off and my friend's character carried a glaive. I bought one of the Reaper weapon packs and used a piece from that for the conversion. I also got a surprise and found that I had already bought the badger a long time ago, so I had two! So I painted both up and call them "The Brothers". I love their furry cloaks.

    SG's Summer and Fall WIP

    Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald. Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to take pics.

    DSM-1187 Sitting Female Mage

    Not much, just a photo of the figure with some primer.
  16. This one has been sitting on my desk begging to be finished for awhile now. After taking the pics I fiddled with the face and changed the color of the stained wood to a walnut which I like better. I'll try to get a photo of that up at some point. I had a wip on this with all my colors and process but the evil empire of photobucket ate the pictures. I used some of the bright skin triad and for the shadow colors corporeal shade. The basework is made from the firm sculpey (the gray type,) a stick and etched brass foliage. The spider shield and barrel are from reaper's bones line. The crystal I did with a few real ones and then just made the rest out of sculpey. I had fun with the idea of someone emerging from shadow so painted the back with the shadow colors and then blended the front to back which gave me a very nice green I used also on the foliage. I made that using a combo of chestnut brown, corporeal shade and linen white. Enjoy! C&C welcome and feel free to ask any questions! I can try to dig up some of the old photos, but having lost my hard drive, it may take time to find the right SD card. Also, I have clearly been playing too much Skyrim...
  17. ^^ Link to the WIP. My Stephanie Law Kickstarter loot pack had their first goof up! Lucky for me, they rectified the situation immediately. At any rate, I had a spare necromancer body and a spare bard arm. I decided to do my first ever conversion and connect the two! I told my friend about this, and we came up with the idea to make The Necrobard an emo-punk rock musician, with heavy influence from My Chemical Romance (specifically The Black Parade). See inspiration: Instead of a summoner, we settled on a "everything hurts" idea of the stereotypical depressed musician/comedian who has very high charisma, but hides a lot of pain. And he wears a lot of black. My friend is indeed going to play this character (his initials are hiding in red in the crook of the lute). Bardic party buffing plus necro debuffing of bad guys. I attempted to make it look like he was casting a necromancy spell by freehanding his hands to have the skeleton glowing through the gloves, and the lute glow where he holds it, and out of the center. I picked "The Punisher" character's logo for an easy skull to freehand on the back. The red stain is because the character beat his brother over the head with the lute as a backstory. I added the skull to the base for the heck of it. If you look closely at the bard-arm, it doesn't line up perfectly... but good enough for a first conversion, yeah? My epoxy was being a butt, so I settled on pins and super glue. If not for the inspiration being bleach blonde, I likely would have given him dark hair. But hey, crazy pale was an adventure to paint. As was the absurd amount of black/gray. The photos I think are over-bright, so I will be tweaking them in the future; I think less light but longer exposure (if I can hold steady) would do wonders - better ones to come in a week or so when I can pin Doug down with my camera. Comments, critique, musical expressions of sadness or joy - all welcome!
  18. I got my Stephanie Law KS pack from DSM. Its awesome. There are many more pieces to glue than in Reaper figures so I'm kinda worried about that. Anyway, onto the not so pressing but very fun matter. I had the honor of being the first one to get a goofed up package in the kickstarter. I got the male necromancer (arms and body), the arms of the male bard, and a second male necromancer body. DSM swiftly sent out a replacement bard, complete with a body and arms. Goal: The Necrobard Now I have spare bard arms and a spare necromancer body. Dilemma: the arms are well, arms. The body needs a single arm. The socket is also not perfect due to slightly different clothing but it is darn close. The arm and the arm-hole that are needed are both at the elbow joint. How would you recommend taking the right hand off the lute so that the male necromancer can be holding a lute in front of him in his left hand? Thus he would become the necrobard, who would sing the dead back to life.
