Mother and Children (Bones 77087) celebrate Norwegian Constitution day

Recommended Posts

Hah, great stuff, very interesting take on them! I like the bunad.

You could just give them some Norwegian flag lapel pins :;):

 

Or something like this if you wanted to: http://www.ingebretsens.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/265x/e5c3f25dbe2a3021345b55270d5894a1/s/m/sm153.jpg

I know we used to use those way back when.

Thanks all, your kind comments made my day  ::):

 

Araziel, yeah I though of making a flag lapel pin, just didn't think I would be able to make one small enough.  Mom's jewelry ended up being pretty clunky  ::P:

I had forgotten to post the photo of the green stuff mods I did. Someone might find it interesting or useful.post-4115-0-13448900-1393270144_thumb.jpg

My mom figure would have needed some greenstuff for her jaw, as well, but I just painted some big lips to distract people. Yours look great, and the greenstuff really helps fill in the gaps! Love the dresses and the free hand. These look beautiful!

 

As for a flag, would it be overly patriotic to just put a flag behind them? Like war banner style?

Great freehand!  Especially those stripped tights- perfect!  I love that you've used your traditions and culture in painting- it makes them very special and unique.  The modifications are excellent!  Are you gifting this mini to any family members? ::):

@Jasonator, thanks! Painting this made me really homesick. Last year I visited for 17th of May, which was really awesome. Alas that is not happening this year.

 

@Thes Hunter, I thought of having a flag pole behind them, but I decided this way I can use them as townsfolk in rpgs if needed.

 

@Corporea, I am keeping this one on my shelf :-)

 

Since the contest due date isn't until March 3rd, I might go back and try to reduce the black around their eyes and add more shading around the noses, to make the faces look better. For some reason I thought the due date was yesterday.

I decided to try to improve the eyes, and I think they are slightly less terrible now:

Fantastic job, I loved all the detail on the dress and the green stuff "work in progress" shots really show off your sculpting efforts. The base is a nice touch too....

      Here are a couple of quick paints I did to support my fondness for dungeon dressing - looks better than white bones on the table!

      Howdy,
       
       Inspiration came from the Reaper Quarterly Contest...

      Can't seem to find these guys.  It says they're from Bones 3.

      Last up in my recently finished miniatures are a set of Animal-Folk from Reaper, all part of Bones 3.  I believe some are Lyncanthropes and some from the Savage Avatars sets.

      The pack:



      The Gorilla King, with hat:



      And without:



      The Were-Gorilla:



      Werebear don't care:




      A rather standard Werewolf:




      Wereboar gotta go fast:



      And a Water-Buffalo-Man.  I realized I painted him after a Yak, then remembered that's not the animal he was meant to be.

      This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest.
      The Angel of Shadow.  She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)!
      For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that.
      Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying.
      Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome.  My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A cross-looking weapon from the BONES 3 Weapon Sprue), and sculpted my take on Acid Arrow, painting it green as the only color on the model, like those stunning black and white photos with colored flowers, etc.  I would say I'm a much better painter than sculptor
       
      Her paints used
       
      As time wore down, I had to abandon thoughts of OSL, so I made it seem like her lantern had died out and the spell didn't cast much light.
       
      Here are some other photos against an out-of-focus rug to show some tighter details.
      I tried to put some texture into the fabric of her dress, which was another first.
       
      C&C Welcome!
