Black is always hard to do on a miniature, but she looks great already!

This is a little further progress.  I painted her necklace and cross gold, her rosary silver, and I added a lot of other colors to her habit. (And I realized her pointing finger was off so I bent it down a tad.)

Then I painted her face and hands.

Development of different colored highlights and shadows.

 

Highlights in a soft blue-grey and shadows in a translucent dull red-violet mixed from Mars Red and Phthalo Blue.

Modeling worked up with a neutral grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened with Titanium White.

Then I glazed a deep near-black made from Phthalo Blue and Burnt Umber over the entire dress.  This pattern of building up highlights in one color and then glazing them darker with a different color is pretty common in my paintings.

I painted her ruler a dull, gungy yellow mixed from mostly Yellow Oxide and Burnt Umber and Titanium White.  There may be a few other browns and black mixed in here and there.

Picking out the deepest shadows in a glaze of Carbon Black and Phthalo Blue.  By this time there are a lot of different layered colors.  They are a little easier to see in the close-up.

excellent!  Your friend won't have to use the ruler on you when you present this to her.  It is very obvious you have been paying attention in class and practicing your art skills :devil:

      Merry Birthday to one of the most awesome sculptors around, Patrick Keith aka @Sculptdude!!!

      By itself this figure is 02863: Female Werewolf by James van Schaik, but to be clear I got mine as part of the set 03495: DHL Classics: Lady Lycanthropes. I have two copies, but of course they are sold singly.
       
      It's an evocative little figure, with a slim build and fur suggestive of long hair. The tail is a separate piece which was too thin for my pinning skills, so it is simply glued on.
       
      I decided to paint these two in realistic wolf style. - That is, colored as real wolves would be, though distorted.
       
      After cleaning up mold lines, I prepared them by priming thinly with Titanium White and washing over with Burnt Umber.

       
      I also threw a quick green on the bases mixed from Yellow Oxide, Hansa Yellow and a small amount of Carbon Black (yellow + black is a fun and unexpected way to make bright greens!).

       
      Those broccoli bases caused me endless trouble.  Note the tiny white specks on them?  Those are tiny pits where the paint didn't take. I will eventually come to spend all sorts of time poking with specially thinned paint and tiny brushes trying to eliminate those white spots.

      This one I painted a few years ago.
      I'm pretty happy with the stones on the base.
       
      I wouldn't trust her when I got sick though.
