I haven't posted much lately.
Work and life have been busy.
We have been playing Reign of Winter.
The GM told me there would be some Snow Goblins.
I thought these Bones Gremlins look a lot like Pathfinder Goblins, so I gave them a wintry paint scheme and some snowy bases.
Kevoth-Kul the Black Sovereign. Am I the only person to have painted this? I usually like to take a look at other painted interpretations of minis that I'm considering to paint. I can't find a single one of this guy anywhere. I can't be the only one who likes it.
I painted this Karzoug, Runelord of Greed for a friend of mine to use as his climactic encounter in his campaign (yes that one). Tried to make him awesome, eventually chose to leave some of the freehand edges out, cause damnnn... Still I am quite pleased with him.
I'm playing in a World of Darkness campaign and we need a bunch of vampires.
I'm adapting Patrick Keith's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain to be a vampire, because not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
She's such a pretty and elegant figure! I left off her short sword and staff and filled in the slight dimples where they were meant to go with a little Golden Molding Paste applied with the point of a bamboo skewer. The stuff shrinks when drying, so I heaped it up a little.
This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. (I seem to be having a little trouble with it crackling just a bit in some areas, though.) It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers (even though, eh, with a vampire you don't necessarily want "warmth".)
I like to paint skin first as something of the undermost layer. After I have the skin more or less smooth and correct I paint the features.
I have been painting up vampires with stark white skin because I don't seem to have the knack to make them look undead if there is even a little flesh tone in their skin. Maybe I should paint them violet or something ...
Anyhow, this is almost the only time I ever mix grey from pure black and white, rather than a complex mix of brighter colors. The flatness of tone conveys something wrong with the individual, and the simplicity of color mix is very easy to shade.
I started with a thin wash of pure Titanium White on her face, neck, bust, and hands.
Then (close ups for a while now) I laid in the first pale shadows. All greys are mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black.
Darker shadows and some lights.
She's rather a mess now, but you can see how the skin shading is beginning to go.
