Two copies, primed with Titanium White and a wash of Burnt Umber: This is a Kitsune figure Reaper offers only as part of a set. I got mine from two copies of 03495: DHL Classics: Lady Lycanthropes (which also includes a werewolf and a weretiger). She also comes in the set 02900: Beastmen of the Wyld (which also includes a boar-man and an elk-man (American elk or wapiti, not European elk or moose)). I will confess, I had seen her around in the store and thought her sculpt only okay and kind of flat looking. But then a couple of gorgeously painted examples changed my mind: So I got two copies of 03495: DHL Classics: Lady Lycanthropes, since I knew I was going to need lycanthropes for a game soon and there aren't too many females out there. Just to get a sense of place I sloshed a little drab green, mixed from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, and a dab of Phthalocyanine Green, onto their bases. I decided to paint one up as a silver fox and one as a classic red fox. Using my standard method of slopping some beginning colors on, I mixed up a neutral grey from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna plus some white and daubed it on one of the figures (plus some pure white on the tail tip). I took some of the straight Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna mix -- which is a transparent dark near-black with violet overtones -- and laid it on the silver fox in the standard places. If you Google silver foxes they are beautiful, almost like Siamese cats, with silver heads and backs and black legs, tail, ears, and face. I did similar things with the reddish kitsune. I mixed a dull rusty red from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a dab of Titanium White, and a minuscule amount of Phthalo Green to grey it down just a hair, then I daubed it on the parts of a fox that would be red. I washed her darker bits with that same Ultramarine Blue-Burnt Sienna near-black, and a light brushing of pure white on her tail tip. Then I took some pure Carbon Black and laid in their eyes, noses, and lips. It's really hard to see on the silver fox, but there is a difference between it and the "black" on her face. So they are a real mess right now, but there should be some interesting developments as we go along.
Hi folks! Now that Flamehawke's received my Secret Sophie box, I wanted to share the miniature I painted for her. She enjoys mythology so I painted this mini based on the markings of silver foxes (which have darker leg fur patterns). It was really fun to find & paint something that matched with the "kitsune" theme of the Secret Sophie gift. This werefox archer is one of Reaper's "Lady Lycanthropes"in the 03495 pack. I had a bit of a snafu with the top part of the bow breaking off while cleaning which halted the process for over a week, though thanks to some advice from the Reaper Sculpting part of the forum, I was able to sculpt & patch it back up-- hard to tell, huh? She was a lot of fun to paint and I'm so happy to hear she's going to a good home where she may see some game time!! --Mocha
Hey, I'm new around here and would like to share some WIP pictures of a custom miniature project that I've been working on lately. This is the first time I've done anything like this, so suggestions are appreciated :D I recently created a Kitsune Sorcerer character for Pathfinder and have been driven crazy by the complete lack of suitable miniatures to represent him with. After doing a lot of searching and some research I finally decided to attempt some 'miniature surgery' to create one of my own. The pictures below are of the best 'prototype' I've been able to come up with so far. I'm planning to eventually redo this once I've perfected my methods (hopefully with nine tails instead of three, but I'm not sure if that will work out too well). Basically, I took two Reaper miniatures (a werefox and a "Piers, Young Mage"), cut their heads off with a jewelry saw, and glued the fox head to the mage. I made a few mistakes here: the mage's pony tail wasn't cut off properly and I didn't use the same metal types for the minis, but I'm hoping to correct that in a final version. After that, I coiled three copper wires together, drilled a hole for them (set so it looks like they come out from under his robe of course), and glued them to the mini to serve as a base for the tails. Then I used some Procreate putty for the tails themselves. Yea, someone with more experience could have done a better job with the fur and shape of the tails themselves, but I'm relatively happy with how it came out ;) I'm going to prime and paint this mini to serve as a placeholder until I perfect my methods. I'll post the finished pictures at some point. The main thing I need to figure out is a way to remove the ponytail from the Piers mini without creating a messed up area on the back of the 'robe'. I'm currently trying to shave it off with a dremel, but the thing skips around way too easily on even the lowest setting. Maybe I'm using the wrong type of dremel head for this kind of metalwork?
