    The Summoning by Glitterwolf

    77636: Death Shroud and Ironwind Metals Female Necromancer. A Micro Art Studio Base and Table Top Art Book and Candle. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-grave-by-glitterwolf/&page=7 Taletha knew she was ready, she had studied the grimoire, practiced the ritual over and over again. She would call upon the Spiritworld and ask for a champion to avenge her parents. Power surged through her when she spoke the forbidden words, a cold wind blew her candle out and suddenly the spirit appeared.

    77098 - Spirit

    As a test of the clear paints, I am attempting to work on some of the green and purple translucent figures. Here is the Spirit #77098. I used the Clear Green for the main part of the body. The head and hands were done with Skeleton Bone & Sepia Wash. I'm not sure if I can call this done or if further detailing needs to be done with the "body". Suggestions?

    Spirit of Summer

    I figured we could all use a little bit of Summer about now.

    Lost But Not Forgotten, DS Lovers

    I'll call this one done as well, though I may touch up a few areas. I love this sculpt. It's so full of life and happiness. I just had to rain on the parade... I added some faint OSL from the spirit on the surroundings. At the last minute I decided to go ahead and use the flower. My WIP is here. Enjoy! C&C always welcome! See y'all at Reapercon!!!
  5. Okie dokie, I have a new idea! See, I love the SL Dark Sword sculpt The Lovers. It's just so sweet. Normally when I look at a sculpt I try to accentuate whatever emotion I imagine the artist trying to evoke and build on that with my paint choice, basing and composition. This one reminds me of a wedding. I get all teary-eyed just thinking about the happiness. Lately though, I'm in the process of killing off my main protagonist in a story I'm writing. Don't hate me. It's necessary to drive the character arcs for my 3 main supporting characters. Plus, I feel like a story always means more when great sacrifice is involved. So I've got this sad ending ticking in the back of my brain. While pacifying my fitbit the other day I was struck by a bolt of figurative lighting! Why not use the above sculpt for a bittersweet story of eternal love. Meaning, I'll paint up the male as a spirit and the woman at the funeral remembering him. Yeah, I know. Depressing. Sigh. But, I betcha no one else has taken this tack, so at the very least it will be unique, the complete opposite of what the artist intended and it'll give me an excuse to play with Hard Colors. Yeah. That's when it hit me. White. Black. Sigh. I took the opportunity to try some experimentation while waiting for the primer to dry. I grabbed a bunch of colors I thought of as potentially working well to depict a spirit, knowing I'd need to use something fairly warm in the woman's palette to offset. I figured the warm white in the last pic wouldn't work, but I'd go ahead and paint up a bones victim in case I needed it another time. So, here's the result of my puttering. It might as well be useful: Now, before I painted them up, I'd have picked the green as being the most spirit-like and spooky. Plus I could go pink fleshy on my lady and get some red-green plus warm-cool contrast (which is usually a win-win.) As it turns out though, I like the blue example best. Hooray for experimentation! I'll add that these are very simple, done in about an hour overall (stupid paint-drying time) and usually with white it needs to be a bit more complex to look right. Remember that white is essentially a color of pure reflection. it's only highlights and shadows come from its surroundings. That's why I painted myself a bit of intense color around each of the "white" cloaks- it gives my a "reflection" to paint into the cloak. Normally, reflections are more complex, so it wouldn't be so one-note or flat. I'd use other colors in the mini or the base to add some depth. Then I chose my other colors: I took a pic because lately I'm leaving a lot of time in between painting sessions, so I'll forget otherwise. hah! So, base coating, just to make sure I like it: And painting! I forget sometimes to take in progress. Took about 3 hours or so. I wanted to tear the opposite head of the one I was working on at least twice to get to a corner. Sigh. worked less on the back, but here it is: Here's a closeup: the hair is coming along nicely! I'll try to get back to it soon! I'll be making a little vignette using the bones sarcophagus and some walls with fancy gothic-type windows. the floor will be a simple mosaic and I want to put some swirlies coming from the sarcophagus to the man. I'll try to figure out how much blue OSL to put on the walls and on the woman without it being too forceful and overwhelming her colors.
  6. More from the realm of Rokugan! The kumo are tainted spirit creatures that are wickedly evil. They are spider-like, large, intelligent, highly magical, man eating shapeshifters - the stuff of nightmares. I completed these during my recent "staycation" paint binge. those legs were impossibly difficult to get in to place, even with pinning as they were very brittle at the joints. The kumo are probably among the rarest pieces in my collection.

    Ghost, Reaper Bones

    This is the Ghost from Reaper's Bones miniatures line. I got started on it last year with a few quick runovers with green ink. Since then it has been collecting dust on the shelf but I figured I might as well finish it. So I did some highlighting on the face and hands and painted the headstone.

    77184: Spirit of the Forest

    Attack of speed painting!! 90 minutes.

    03673: Wendigo

    Some of you might have seen the WIP shot I posted of this particular figure on the Reaper facebook page, but here is the final result! One goal was to show off the creature's ability to blend to it's environment, and thus you'll notice the correlation between it's lower legs and the stream across which, it stands.

    Drowned Spirit (03727)

    This week I painted the "Drowned Spirit" figure to use as a wraith in my Frostgrave games. This figure was newly released when I was planning my Frostgrave harbor terrain build, and something about it just made it seem like the perfect fit to be a ghost to haunt the old harbor. So, I ordered it during the12 Days of Reaper promotion, and just now got around to painting it. To help convey the frigid Frostgrave look, I added a Water Effects icicle under the rocky outcropping and used snow flocking n the base. Also, I went with a glossy finish, instead of my usual matte, to help bring across the wet look. It is just intended for game use, so I probably didn't devote enough time as the figure deserves, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out nonetheless. As always, C & C welcome.

    Nakos' 77099: Nightspectre

    This weekend I got into a painting mood and finished several pieces, a great worm and a stone golem, and started several skeletons, ghouls, and golems. I started this one and the Banshee last year and wanted to try something different. I started out with a white wash base coat from Apple Barrel white and Reaper's flow improver, took two layers to get a good coverage. I then washed it with GW's Thrakka Green and proceeded to leave them for months. This weekend I finshed this one. I did a heavy drybrush of Meadow Green to knock down some of the green glossyness. For a different spectral theme I decided to throw some purple into the color scheme so I used GW's Leviathian Purple wash. To tone down the glossiness of the wash I then finished it off with a drybrush of Mossy Green. At this point I'm not sure if the original green wash is contributing anything to the palate. For the skeletons, my wife suggested a tarnished penny look. So I mixed some Meadow Green, Ancient Bronze and Redstone. The Redstone made it too red so I added a bit of Mossy green and a touch of brown. It looked ok but didn't really make them stand out so I hit them with the tarnished brass. Not the tarnished penny look but I like it, again it's a different direction. For the base I layed down GW's Charadon Granite and followed it up with a drybrush of Noir Black. I intended to do a light drybrush of Maggot White but it came out too heavy so I did a light drybrush of Noir Black and another light drybrush of Maggot White. I think it made for a nice depth look. My phone camera's flash makes it look like there is more white showing through then is really there but in the base photos you can get a better idea of the look.
