Presenting Percival, a knight of renown from Kingdom Death.
Not massively happy with the face on this one, I was trying to give her a very pale complexion but it didn't really work. I also could've done a better job on her hair (I was just very intimidated by it for some reason).
I am pretty pleased with the rest of her though.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
I do declare her pretty much done. She's done unless I have a midnight burst of "oh my gosh I must fix that thing".
Not 100% happy with the chain, but I got it looking formidable so that's good. Not 100% happy with the hair. Highlighting just looked too cheesy, so I kept tweaking it overly. Mostly happy with her face; I got the character of it down well, but refinement is an ongoing struggle.
Very happy with her red shoulder pad and trim. Fairly happy with the shading on the metals, but I could still improve.
Other annoying thing: I literally cannot get enough decent lights to get good photography where I live. This is better than me taking pictures with a bunch of paint bottles around, but not like what I used to be able to set up at my old apartment. This house has atrocious lighting to begin, the lamps bulbs are too yellow, and when I do put in a nice bulb, the darn lamp has too short of a cord to reach any area that could be used for photography. The best I might be able to do is surround the area between the kitchen and the table with lamps, on the floor. And that would be in the way of my roommates and kinda gross. So I used daylight, despite the big ol' shadow, and my wimpy otlite (not bright enough alone).
Enough kvetching, onward to pictures! Rip her to shreds!
If you know of a way that I could get better pics without spending a ton on lamps, that would be awesome!
This guy has been a work in process for a few weeks and I finally got the time to finish him up! Quite pleased with how my third paint job turned out! Got some tips from a vet painter last night and also an idea that I might do later to have a bit of a glow effect coming from the visor. Will update if I do it
Here are some gnasty gnolls for your enjoyment!
Tried to do some work on groups with an army/matching uniform look...
... And some highlighting on raised areas (the gnoll's left knee).
The lighting isn't super great in these pictures (sorry!) but I promise you all they DO have spooky red eyes, as per the usual evil hunters.
Next post will likely be a return some bigger minis (I just can't quit my demon lords!). Until then, take care of yourselves!
