Darksword Tiefling Bust

Recommended Posts

I love the bright colors!  Her expression is soooo awesome!

It is hard to push through on the larger pieces and I find my stamina isn't always there.  I find working on other smaller projects and then coming back to it helps sometimes. Keep it up!

She's great!!!!

 

And I disagree, you DO have the skill..

 

I paint busts and always paint something smaller at the same time.

That way you can alternate.

Like Corporea said.

 

Very cool eyes!!!

Not sure if you were just kidding, but yes, there is a mini for this from Darksword.

 

Edit: Messed up the quotes, so removed them instead.

I really like the bright colors. As for (hopefully) constructive critisism my (vastly) uneducated guess is that a darker skin tone would have enhanced the contrast with the colorful clothing and made the bust pop abit more.

LOVELY! She is exotic & more than a little sinister...BEAUTIFUL brushwork & an INSPIRED choice of colors. VERY WELL DONE!

Well you've definately done well on this one.  I love your color choice for the skin.  I've yet to try anything that big.  Larges peice I've done is the Phoenix (and I'm sill working on it).

"Don't think she looks too bad, but I'm not sure if I'll get any more busts in the future though, I don't really have the patience or skill to paint this larger scale stuff."

 

 

That was sarcasm... right?

 

You are supposed to use PURPLE for sarcasm so the rest of us know although in this case it is obvious as the SKILL level is very high as represented by the results.

 

 

I love it and the photos with the the shadows actually work.

Thanks everyone!

 

I dunno though, to me she still looks very flat and rushed, despite all the work that went into it.

I might tackle another bust in the future, it would depend on finding another one that really inspires me, like this did.

Yep, there is a mini version of her, she's sitting on a stool though.

I love ::wub:: the colors you've painted her in! she looks great IMHO. I agree with the others, you might just need to alternate between larger and smaller models so as to not get discouraged.

I like her very much!  As others have said, some darker, deeper skin shading would have made the other bits stand out more.  I think you did a particularly good job on the fabric.  I have yet to try a bust, so I commend you for giving it a go.

      Converted Gregor the Wizard, who is a druid type character, well wrapped up with a bird as a familiar. I thought the model would look good as a female character and the way the coat bunches up means that a conversion looks OK, in my view. I just cut off the head with a razor saw and swapped it with a reaper bones head for Drys the Dryad. I just stuck it straight onto a blob of green stuff. I didn't need to do much texturing because the beard on the original male model just looks like a scarf following the sawing.
       
      The mittened hand holding the bird just got accidentally bent back while I was sawing the head off (is this forum externally monitored?). It wasn't an intentional part of converting. 
       
      Then a pretty simple paint job, have done the washes in these pics and need to do some basic highlighting and a winter effect on the base.

      Okay, so I may never go back to painting 30 mm...! JK, but I did seriously enjoy painting this bust. It's my first, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
       
      It's Joaquin Palacios' "Drogor" and it was also my first attempt at using the airbrush. I used it to do a shaded basecoat, and then brushed the rest using a combination of Vallejo, Master Series, and Golden acrylic paints. I wanted a strong directional light source, and I think I achieved it fairly well (comments and tips are much appreciated.) Given my 2D painting background, I use glazes pretty heavily, as you can probably tell.
       
      Anyone know of a domestic source for nice wood bases? I've ordered a few from Sockelmacher, but they will take sooo looong to get here. This is just a chunk of balsa I used to paint on and he needs something nicer. 
       
      Happy painting!

      Hey all, it’s been a little while since I’ve had time to paint anything.  The last couple days I finally got back to it and painted up Toruk for a one shot D&D game on Sunday.  I’m pretty happy how he turned out since I tried to go quick.  I really love this sculpt and it might of influenced my race choice a little bit :) C&C welcome!  Enjoy!
