03667: Nonalla Ellinad, Elf Wizard

Recommended Posts

Forgive the poor quality of this; I'm both getting back to painting after a bit away and am taking pictures with my cell, so they aren't going to be super-pretty. Not sure how I would make them look less terrible with what I have available, but I would happily accept pointers!

 

Anyway, this is my attempt at Nonalla. I really like this sculpt, but I like less what I did with it. Very monotone. I may strip and repaint her and try making her more colorful.

From What I can see, she's not bad at all . I wouldn't strip her so that you can look back at her later and see how far you've come

I also really like this particular sculpt and painted her up last year for a friend during an exchange.

 

Vegascat has good advice there, keep her and look back on her and see how far you've come in a year or two after you've been painting some more.

 

Also, I'd suggest a neutral background so that your camera can properly focus on her, more information about taking pics of minis can be found here.

 

Just keep at it, have fun and ask for advice!

Looks good to me so far.

 

Some minis can get away with a monotone look.

 

Also, what Vegascat said...True

      This one was super fun to paint 
      This is the first time I tried to do glowing effect on a mini, I think it could have been better but I like how it turned out!
      Comments and criticism are welcome

      So I painted her as my player character in an upcoming game, the tricky thing was that she had some pretty bad burn scars. I tried to paint a burn scar on her shoulder holding the wand, I am not sure how well it came out.
       
      As always let me know what you all think of her.
       
      I feel I should also apologize for the photo quality, I am trying to get something set up for decent pictures.

      Recently finished up this mini for a 5e character I made recently (Wood Elf Rogue). The slot base connector snapped during the prep stage, so I decided to rebase the mini and add some leaves as custom terrain (painted birch seeds).

      Started working on this guy today for one of my player.
      Since I'm a "newbie" and have no experience in working with skin, I was wondering if Reaper's Flesh Wash would look ok with the Elf Flesh base-coat for the skin.
       
      For the hair, the player want him to be carrot-top with a touch of grey. The could prove to be interesting. 
       
      I'm also looking for suggestions for his clothing. almost anything is fair game, all though the campaign setting is in a desert/desolation area.

      Good evening all!
      So here's my last Hackmaster endeavor, another Jim Johnson figure (really enjoying painting his sculpts), an Elf Magic User with a staff throwing a fireball. I think he was sculpted around 2003 like the previous female elf magic user, and the figure it all kinds of fun.  As always I didn't know what colors to use. I ended up making him blonde, after deciding on lilac for my female mage, and then started painting him from the inside out. I grabbed his shirt as a bright yellow, pants orange, and then I started thinking more autumn colors so red inside of his cloak and the cloak itself an earth brown.
       
      Pretty straightforward figure, didn't have lots of dingly Dangley items going on.  Hackmaster figures either have a lot going on or they are simply elegant.  With them as well, they are larger figures, not the classic 25 mm from early Partha, but this is a line that they acquired not too long ago and in itself was sculpted in this century so a bit of size creep will have occurred. You can see the size difference in these and other figures Jim Johnson sculpted for the Partha brand. 
       
      Did a green flame, now I've done a couple magical green flames instead of just normal fire color, and I'm still way too chicken to do OSL.  Maybe someday. In the meantime, hope you enjoy him!
