  1. I'm working on 60067 Nyrissa. She's a major NPC in the Kingmaker adventure path from Paizo. I'm trying to follow the reference art from the cover of the AP pretty closely, though I've checked other threads on the forums for inspiration too. So far I've got a base: The base is from Micro Arts Studio. I gouged a slot in it for the tab at the base of her wings. It's coming along okay, but it's awfully muted. It needs more contrast -- particularly brighter highlights. I've base coated her wings. The wings are 3:3:1 Pine Green/Linen White/Pale Saffron. The vines are in Formula P3 Wurm Green, and the interior petals are your basic Fire Orange. It doesn't come through in the photography very well, but in person the blue in the main wings is a LOT more noticeable. I need to push it more towards the yellow end of the spectrum -- I want them to be the pale, nearly yellow green of fresh leaf growth, before it's had time to mature and darken. I don't quite know what I'm going to do about that. I don't really have any pale green paints -- I generally like dark greens, and have a wide selection of those. I may need to mix something custom. The interior petals are off to a good start, but need to shift red in the deepest parts, and yellow at the edges. I'm less worried about those. I haven't even primed her body yet. I'm not quite sure how to handle it, frankly. It's a lovely sculpt, but difficult to work with. She has a little nubbin between her shoulder blades that fits into the hole you can see in her wings up above, leaving her hovering mid-air. Literally every other part of the mini needs to be painted -- there's no place to hold the part while I'm working. Ordinarily I stick the figures to bottle caps with poster putty (as with the base, above), and I just got that fancy Rathcore mini holder thing that I'm using for her wings. But neither of those will work, because any part of the mini I stick in putty isn't available for painting, and if I stick the nubbin into the cork, that leaves her back inaccessible. Plus I worry that the pressure of the cork might deform the nubbin and cause it not to fit its matching hole properly. So I may need to paint her body in two different phases, first her torso/arms/head, and then her legs. I'll take notes on painting procedures as I go so I can match them on the second half.
  2. I hope the leaves are covering enough. I tried to make her look like she's made of wood anyway.
  3. This past week I painted the Drys, Dryad, figure from the Bones II, Sylvan Creatures set. Since I was in kind of a Frostgrave frame of mind when I was thinking about painting her, I decided I would try to paint her up in winter colors, like a dryad that has been unexpectedly awoken from her Winter sleep, and is not happy about it.

  4. Microbust for the Jab/Feb 2017 painting challenge. Had a lot of fun with this. I think the pose lends itself very well to the microbust concept. Since I chopped off her legs, the bigger challenge was how to base. Decided to just keep it on the cork holder. I was inspired by the studio paint job. I hope I did it justice.
  5. Another grouping of minis from the batch that suffered sealant malfunction, comes a grouping of ladies from the Sunkissed Vale, Dryads/Nymphs/Warrior Queens of the fungal persuasion. All are from Ganesha Games "Fightin' Fungi" line for "Song of Blades and Heroes" The Queen herself: An Amazon Fungus: The Mitkityad Forest Nymph: The entire growth: And a very confused Goblin, pulling rank for this and the Gobblydegook (Hey, it came in the same set!)
  6. My first miniature done with airbrush, so it's more testing than anything else. Hope you will enjoy it. I still have to finish the base a bit, with some fallen leaves. And because of the tree nudity, I'm posting only the link. Any C&C's are more than welcome. http://pipek.drd.sweb.cz/dryada.jpg Pampala
  7. This year I got Leopardpixie as my Secret Sophie partner and part of what she put down for inspiration was high fantasy with vibrant colors. I had just seen Nyrissa the dryad queen in the Reaper store and thought that she would be perfect. I really wanted to play with color so I went with bright green and purple. In all, I am very happy with how it turned out.
  8. Here's the Dryad and Pixie for Cal's Pathfinder game. Thanks for looking! 14552: Sylph Julie Guthrie 14479: Drys, Elven Dryad Werner Klocke
  9. With my collection being rather "large" these days, I've been trying to knock out tabletop quality work, and have shown a few here lately. Was time to slow down and enjoy the process more. I wouldn't say these are contest level, but hopefully better than tabletop! Anyone else find themselves speed painting far too often? (Shaman needs some basing still.) Mini numbers for those that might want to paint one of these themselves 02711 elf 14479 dryad 2805 shaman
  10. Okay I admit to being a bit proud. I decided with RCon going on to see if I could push my painting a bit more so I finally started to work on some shadows and also drybrushing. I finally am getting the hang of drybrushing! So happy now. She is linked due to the forum rules about nudity. So you are now warned these pictures contain nudity. Back Front Side
  11. Here's my second completed BONES 2 mini, the Dryad. I'll be picking her up in metal at some later date, this one's just not cutting it. Since I was on my way to [CLASSIFIED], and it's cherry blossom season over here, I decided to go with a Spring theme. The cherry blossoms were created using some clump foliage, sealed with super glue and painted. It's difficult to tell, but they're lavender, drybrushed in pink, then a light drybrush in white. It got really washed out in the photos. [Linked for Nudity] Front Side Back Side As always, C&C welcome!
  12. This is the DGS Games Dryad (100010) that I got in one of their Kickstarters. A fun, quick paint job.
