That is AMAZING!

 

Not only a fantastic paint job but an an awesome story being told in the diorama as well.

 

Someone needs to add an "I'm not worthy!" emoticon to this forum!

 The position of the gun against the skellie's head and its open-mouthed expression are perfect, lol... ::D:  That moment when you've just discovered someone's jammed a really big gun up against your head...

 

 Although, it may just be the lighting in the pic, but in the back view it kind of looks like she's not wearing any pants...

*** This woman seems to attack any of them on sight, just because of their condition!***

 

*** It is not their fault!, they're Undead, a condition everyone of us could be suffering from at a given time***

 

*** I would like to know what cause of action will be taken against this spiteful individual who keeps harassing the poor undead***

"I warn you. I rarely miss at this range." Peter Lorre. That's what passed through my mind immediately after the "Oh my, but that is BEAUTIFUL!". The narrative composition,  brushwork, & basing are WONDERFULLY IMAGINATIVE SPLENDIDLY executed. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

beautiful!

My only thought is that she looks out of place on the base because her colors are not echoed anywhere else.  What are your thoughts about working some of her browns into the ground and the tree stump?  i think that would do it.  otherwise, it seems like she's Dorothy in a nearly monochrome skellie land (which is cool, btw.) But I'm wondering if she wouldn't fit better with some hints of color around her (other than the cool green, which helps a bunch for contrast!)  At any rate, that's my only idea.

You hit the nail on the head for this. I was thinking the same thing, it's a gorgeous piece, but not very cohesive.

 

I'd even recommend a light brown wash on the skeletons to "dirty" them up a bit as they are coming out of the ground. They could be yellowed bones this way and REALLY tie the whole piece together.

First of all, thank you so much to all of you for your super kind words!!!  ::):

lol, in that case, she might want to wear some sunscreen 'cause those are some seriously burned cheeks!

These are very valid points and caused me serious pause partway through the mini.  I attempted to address them by changing the rim of the base from pure black to Brown Liner, and that helped ever so slightly but not fully.  However, in the end, I think that I'm going to leave things as is for two reasons:

 

The artsy reason:  I do kind of like the contrast between the warm tones of the fiery heroine and the cool undead.

 

The lazy reason:  I reach a point with every mini where I'm done and ready to move on, and I've definitely hit that point with this one!

 

In the end, my laziness is probably the driving factor, but I want to learn from that astute critique and be more cohesive next time, so I thank you both!

      Taking a break from army painting to finish up Victoriana.  Next step is to finish up the NMM on her various brass tools.  Then painting the lenses on her hat.  After that, its time to do a freehand pattern on the carpet bag and plaid on her suit.

      Speed painted to send off to a Niece who really like rabbits.  Hopefully she likes these!
       
      Doom Bunny from Bombshell Miniatures:


      and a Vorpal Bunny.  I've had these guys for a very long time.  Made of resin.  Came in a bag with about a dozen or more in it.  Long forgotten who manufactured them:
      Sorry for the pics!  Finished the wash on the Doom Bunnies Axe and then snapped a few quick pics before packing them up to go in the mail.

      This fun little guy is from Bombshell's Kritterkin line and is the first one of them that I have painted. I started him at our paint group last Saturday and finished him up over last few days. I wanted to go for more of a pirate type look than naval officer so I decided to play around with textured leather. It was a challenge keeping all the brown from not looking the same but I am happy with how he turned out.

      Bombshell Miniatures 10050 Celeste the Sorceress, sculpted by Kev White.
       
      I wanted a simple mini with few accessories to paint up as a quick little project, so I picked Celeste for her clean lines.  As a bonus I used some of the Breastcancer Awareness Pink I have multiple bottles of.
      Spent maybe 3 hours on her.

      I've decided on the figures I'm using for this project now too, they changed since last time. I want to enter it into this year's Reapercon Diorama category (of course) and I want it to qualify for Bombshell Babes diorama, so I'm picking out 5 babes to battle the keeper (RBG) and his summoned demon (reaper glabrezu): 1) Celeste - Sorceress/wizard, 2) Khai the Huntress - ranger, going to weapon swap her to give her a bow, 3) Thorga Half Orc - Barbarian, Astrid Thunderhammer - Cleric, and Sister Vasha Fane - Paladin.

      This piece will be 2 stories tall, it will have a lot of details and a lot of action, with a summoning circle that the Glabrezu is inside of at the time the heroines come rushing into the Keeper's Sanctum. 
       
      The badelf adventuring party!
