DSM7304 - FEMALE MAGE WITH STAFF

I watched your WIP on this one and I love your color choices. The teal looks suburb with excellent blending. I love her hair and skin too. I will be looking for this one and the Con, and of course I hope to meet you too.

Looks fantastic!  I was watching your WIP on this one too.  It reminds me of how much detail we keep in our mind's eye for these projects in this hobby.  Your final product turned out awesome!  I particularly enjoy the deeper purplish blues and their contrast with the lighter blues that you have highlighted so well to a white.  The face and hair came out very well and you have a very good "fair" skin tone.  When I try for a fair skin tone, it often turns out chalky.

 

What were your paint formulas for the red-orange hair?

For the hair I used RMS red hair triad w/ a highlight higher using RMS sun yellow.

 

As for chalky paint use less paint on your brush and maybe a little matt medium. Hope this helps.

So shiny and bright!  She looks like a painted illustration, reminding me of one of those masters of the brilliance of gouache and watercolor.

I thought I'd post one of my RCon entry.  Here is Darksword Miniature's Female Mage with a staff.

 

Also remember to enter her into the DSM contest, they are running one that gives winners some store credit!

Great work on a lovely model, how did you make the base?

Doh, completely forgot to post that in my wip. I used a cork from a wine bottle. Scrapped the edges to break up the uniformity. Then glued down tuft of grass followed by some sand. Paint to color.

      Storm Giant. Or Blue Zeus if you will.
       

      Being from the first Bones kickstarter, this mini is in the softer material. That big sword there was a noodle when I received it. I repositioned it with hot water, and again, it is for the most part OK even if it is slightly bent, it is only apparent from certain angles.
      Also, it has a mould line indentation groove going down the front shoulder that I probably should have filled, as it became very apparent after painting.
      I based it on a 76mm bespoke 3Dprinted round lipped base.
       
       

      For some reason, the female is quite a lot smaller than the male. Say what you will, they certainly are giant sized when compared with humans!
      I chose to paint them as Papa Smurf and Smurfette, just because.
       
      In the third kickstarter Reaper started redoing the Giants, replacing them with significantly larger versions of previously released ones. These have not been remade (yet). I would expect them to do that in the expected-to-be-upcoming fifth kickstarter, as they have recently shown off a print of the same female figure in a different pose and at about twice the size.

      The second of the day's random bones is the Flesh Golem from the third kickstarter.
       

      Basically your Frankenstein's Monster. There was a flesh golem in the first kickstarter as well, but this one is larger, fatter and he has got technological bits sticking out here and there.
      I painted the different parts in several distinct fleshtones, but the subsequent wash with Druuchi Violet and Athonian Camoshade evened out the colour significantly more than I expected. The purple seams I painstakingly painted in more or less dissappeared! The ripped pants started out dark blue green, but ended up dark brown.
      Apart from the drying time I spent maybe half an hour on this mini.

      I have always found the concept of snakemen, with the heads, bodies and undercarriages of snakes, but arms like men, to be a bit of an evolutionary fluke. How exactly did these evolve? Of course, the answer is as always "magic" or "don't ask, don't tell".
       
      This one is from the very first Bones kickstarter and as such is in the earliest, whitest and most bendy type of Bones material. The weapons were a bit noodly, but nothing that could not be fixed with a spot of hot water though.
       

      I painted this as a coral snake. First the red, then the yellow, then the black.

      Hello everybody!
       
      So last night finally finished this little lady, a very petit mage sculpted by Julie Guthrie in the early eighties.  With this one, I kind of felt that her shoes were so petite that I didn't want to put neither grass nor cornmeal (for dirt) in front of them, as to not completely cover them up, so I just did a super simple base without anything.  
       
      I really like this figure and didn't realize how much detail she has until I got her primed and really started working on her.  I had no idea she had a rose on the top of her staff for example.

       
      and all the bangles she's got on and  with the chains on her left hand, couldn't really appreciate it in her unpainted state.  Before I primed her, she kind of reminded me of the Julie Guthrie Hill Giant I painted recently, where you couldn't be sure how her face was going to really look, but when you got her primed and painted she looked a lot more decent.  
       
      I thought the highlights on the cape were going to pop out a little bit more, but oh well. Next time I'll do deeper shadows and higher highlights!
       
      So hope you all enjoy!
