So, a looooooong time ago, I painted this as a gift to my then-girlfriend (now wife), known to a few around here as Nissiana:
Then the 54mm "Master Series" came out. Nissiana picked up the Monique DeNoir figure and painted a stellar monochrome version as a gift for me. Around the same time (shortly after the model was released, so early 2008), I picked up the 54mm counterpart of the above figure, Maria Roseblade. I intended at the time to paint her as a gift to Nissiana...and I started painting her. Got a few basecoats, even. Then, other projects for games, contests, etc. cropped up and Maria was sidelined. It's been a running joke ever since, as Nissiana knows about the intended gift.
So, before mid-March 2018, I want to finish this up.
Here's where we are:
I want to follow the oxblood leather/blue top ideas of the original figure, but the light blue piping is getting replaced with ivory lace. I'm also happy with where I left a lot of the skin, so I don't need to repaint much. But there's plenty left to do!
The white patch on her thigh is greystuff, required for some gap filling.
Here we go!
I'm painting a Rageclaw Warrior and I'm trying to figure out what this thing is. He has a leather strap wrapped around one of his hind legs and there's something hanging off it. Can anyone tell what it is? It's a package or a letter maybe? I don't know what color to paint it.
Hey there, I'm very new to sculpting, and i was hoping for some advice in removing the "seams" that show up when you add a new blob of greenstuff onto your model, I've been using Vaseline, and a small slightly rounded steel dental tool for the bulk of my sculpt, i can get most of the height difference to go away, but the seam is still visible, I'm mostly trying to blend it into other soft green stuff underneath it, i don't have too much trouble blending a soft layer into a cured layer, any advice, tips or techniques
Also, I appreciate all the great tips I've already found on the forum, its saved me from having to do a lot of trial and error on my own
Time to get the crew together, starting with the Heritor and Warden!
Tonight was all about cleaning flash and mold lines, and there was a fair bit to do on both of these ladies. Also the Heritors swords were both really bent. They'll both be cut from their bases tomorrow and attached to new textured bases that all of the crew will be using.
More on that tomorrow!
Another quick update! I've just finished adding hair onto Deva. I love this sculpt, the only thing that i didn't like was that she was bald. I wanted more of a Valkyrie descending from heaven look for the model as i'm going to need it for an upcoming campaign. So, out comes the greenstuff. I'd previously experimented with adding beards to models and i figured that hair couldn't be much different could it? Turns out it's really different. Hair flows in different ways to beards, particularly if you're wanting long flowing locks of the stuff.
Still, i'm very happy with how it came out even if it took me most of an afternoon just to do add strands into the hair locks.
As far as colouring goes, nothing to controversial, while dress, silver armour. I added alot of blue highlights to the base of the dress, trying to go for an ethereal summoning vibe.The wings caused me a little grief as i was going for more of a pigeon white colour, until i realised that was really understated, so I added a touch of gold and silver and that really brought out the highlights. I thought the effect was so good, i gave it another coat. In hindsight the second coat of silver may have been a mistake, but still. Live and learn.
Anyway guys, As always comments/critiques are appreciated, but please be gentle i've only just picked up painting again and i'm still trying to learn the ropes :)
