Every Dungeon and town square needs statues. And some of us don't have all day (or a deep enough silverware drawer) to spend on each one. I don't have a use for a lady carting around several hundredweight of Draconic Head Cheese, but the sculpt's just too nifty to leave in the box of shame. So, a commemorative statue of Lady Janan of Elmoria it is.
77039: Janan, Female Dragon Slayer by Julie Guthrie
Just so we all know where we're starting.
Start with a Dark brown basecoat. This one's raw umber, but Reaper's beloved brown liner will work a treat.
Drybrush with just about any relatively opaque light blue. This will look terrible. Just go with it. If you really loved this figure it wouldn't be getting turned into terrain.
Draw the rest of the owl. A glaze of something seafoam green and somewhat translucent. This is something called "Bayberry" in Folkart's catalog. Seal with your favorite flat acrylic. Now I've just got to build a fountain to stick her in.

Title: The Merchant of Backwater
This piece was one of particular interest for me. I remember the first time I saw it I just had to paint it. It seemed so odd but had so much personality.
The very last picture: The last picture is of the bottom the base. I used this wood chip from a woodcrafters store. I'm fairly certain my grandfather - who lived in Tulsa OK until his death - went to this store all the time. He was Sales me by Trade and a craftsmen by... other trade. I thought it fitting to use this chip on the Half Orc Merchant.
Thank you all for the support. I have procrastinated photographing this for various reasons but he is finally done. Hope you enjoy.
This bones mini came attached to a rectangular base, like a coffin-top. The base was larger than a standard grid, so I chopped it off and stuck the mini on this base instead. I figured it would give her a fun windswept look, like she was glaring down at the battlefield from a height. :-)
The TMM globbed in a strange way on this mini that wasn't obvious to the naked eye. I'm wondering if some of this is glare...?
Next problem: the base made her too tall to fit into my miniature storage...
Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!
