I started this figure for my friends celebrating this month.
I have had the figure for many years, and the one I have isn't the best cast, but she'll be beautiful.
Plan is to have brown outer dress, darkish hair, and rainbow wings.
Tried a new eyes technique; I mixed Schubert's method with the Bette Davis method. DKS's guide has the eyes after shading up the face, and the Bette Davis ones are at the start, then cover the edges. I used DKS at the start instead of the end, so I can still meet the eyeliner as I fill in the face.
Right then, I've put together a list of some paints from Reaper that I plan to order this month (so that I can get that sweet, sweet 25th Anniversary model on the down-low). This is my first serious plunge into their paint line as I've really only ordered some paints for red hair - both natural and unnatural - and for a failed project in the distant past. The question is as follows: does this list of paint below encompass a fairly large scope for creating pale skin tones?

So I just dropped nearly 100$ at my FLGS on reaper master series paints, only to discover upon closer inspection that they are actually pigments. I'm a beginner/moderate painter, so I didn't quite realize there was a difference. After conversing with one of my more hardcore painter friends, i'm even less sure than I was before. He tells me that the pigments are different from the paints and that pigments are usually only used to tint paints, but then i went to the website and saw that everything there comes in the same kind of bottles with all the same names. It seems strange to me that reaper would sell only pigments and not paints, and now I'm very very confused. So let me just pose this simple question:
I purchased this bottle, and many others like it:
Can I paint my Bones minis with this and some water?
and as a follow up question:
Did i just bone myself out of 100 bucks?
So hear is a loaded cannon for every one; How do you paint fabric to make it look realistic. I personally tend to build up many layers of highlights and shadows and that how I do fabric, I may free hand a designee on but that really about it. I've notice wile going threw some of last years winners for reaper con that some of the fabric was painted in a almost stippled effect and it look more like a hand stitched/hand made dress or tabard. I have been trying to replicate this with no avail what so ever and going back threw old work I seem to have gotten something close back when I was learning to paint and I have no idea what I did to get that textured look. Any advice out there on how to get this look?
