For the January/February RPChallenge, one of the bonus challenges was:
I immediately knew what figure I was going to use but unfortunately she caused me quite a lot of trouble, especially her wings. Fortunately, Jessica Rich very kindly helped me out with some great advice and thus released me from my downward spiral.
The base is by Scibor miniatures and was a lot of fun to paint. I've been very pleased with every resin piece I've ever gotten from Scibor and this was no exception. There weren't even any mold lines to clean up.
Anyway, I hope y'all like her!
(Pics are a little washed out...I probably should've used a darker background. Oh well. .....and I just realized that the jar she's sitting on looks like it's part of the base....it's not, I just should've put the jar under the background fabric. I just paint things, man, I'm not a professional photographer. )
This wonderful set was a gift to me from a good friend of mine and they were very fun to paint. Only annoying thing is their bases are really rather beautiful but of course as soon as you put the dwarf on it you can't see any of that detail anymore. Anyways, they were a lot of fun and I always love quirky dwarves. Thanks for reading!
So this is the second one of these Scibor ornaments that I've painted. I started him before Christmas to have something to post for my daily painting challenge on facebook so that my mother wouldn't see what ended up being her Christmas present. As a result, I was painting it for too long and got to the point where I just wanted to be done with it, so it's rougher in some spots than I would normally like to leave, but, eh, gotta move on.
The skin got away from me... I don't think the highlights are too bright, but I do think that I made them too large so his skin ends up looking stripey instead of highlighted.
Anyway, C&C very very welcome, as always!
Well it has been three weeks since I last picked up a brush though I did work on some bases, so I figured it was time to start a new WIP. This will be covering more than a few miniatures that want to get done this summer, preferably before I go on vacation in August.
First up is Onufry the Ribald, a 54mm from Scibor. This guy is just for fun and I probably will enter him in a competition. I debated between doing a display base or using the one he came with. In the end I made one with some bark, a slate piece, a resin scenery dwarf head, and a resin tree trunk. I am really happy with it.
Next we have one of my planned entries for ReaperCon, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Goddess that was their freebie at last year's RCon. I am hoping to paint each year's DS mini up for the following year. She is going to be based among ruins of building in the forest which is right now just the walls on some cork. There will be a tree in the corner and lots of greenery. Basically the forest reclaiming the area.
Then I hope to finish my Zayna from Ares Mythologic's Draconia line. She was started last year but kept getting pushed aside. She is also destined for RCon.
Another fun one I hope to work on is Reaper's Blightfang which I am doing as a purple/blue dragon. I have just started the base which will be a forest pond.
Lastly we have Kabuki's The Hunter. Not much planned for her yet except I plan on keeping it simple. Her legs are so thin I did not want risk removing the base piece that she is on so I evened out part of a Secret Weapon base and now she will be standing on a rook in the swamp.
I know not much has been done yet but any input would be appreciated.
