(This is my first WIP post. If I get something wrong, please let me know.)
I've never painted skin before. (BattleMechs don't have skin.) For some reason, I decided olive skin would be a good place to start and I'm starting to regret that. Oh well, I started it, I might as well finish it, right?
This is where I am so far:
Basecoating is done. I have done shadows and highlights on her skin, robe, and yellow ribbons/accents. I know I missed some mold lines but learning to paint skin was the goal here.
So far, I believe I'm doing "okay" but I'd like some outside opinions (and constructive criticism), especially on the blending of the skin and fabric. I know some of the yellow shadows/highlights need to be smoothed (and possibly redone).
I'm not completely sure what to do with the front of her belt or whatever that's supposed to be. I'll see how it looks when I've added shadows and highlighting.
I'm happy with how her eyes turned out (first time doing those too) but her left eye always looks odd in the left shots. I'm sure it's just an unfortunate angle but it reminds me of a muppet's eyes (or a Fendahline's). I believe there's not much I can do about it. (And, at this point, I don't want to touch her eyes. It took an hour to paint her eyes and 77073 Freja Fangbreaker's eyes (future WIP, I hope). Let's not open that can of worms again, shall we?)
Would it be helpful to anyone to know what paints I've used so far?
I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked.
I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe.
Mold lines really weren't too bad.
I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try.
Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details.
For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.
Reconstructed and redesigned in response to your input, Stronghold on the Borderlands has been reimagined as a MASSIVE digital, infinite fort design for 3dprinting. This Design will offer more than SIX TIMES the digital content for the SAME PRICE as our initial launch! Original resin options will also remain with many NEW add-on options.
Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
I have read through 80% of it.
I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.
