I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues for my Dragons Don't Share Ruins. My WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71651-dragons-dont-share-2/
I am still working on the overall but I was happy with how my "statues" turned out so wanted to share them in a Show Off!
I can't get over how cute these two little minis are. I had no idea they were so cute. I will be buying more to paint as "normal" but I think they make excellent statues as well!
Pictures of Virgo in first reply.
Medusa is easily among the most beautiful sculpts I've ever painted. My hat is off to Sebastian Archer, he really outdid himself with this one.
After I posted the first one, another client asked me to paint her up for him. I mostly followed my original color scheme, except this time I used true metallics in place of the non-metallic metals I used the first time around.
I'll need to paint one up for myself sometime. She really just screams to be in a competition.
I've posted her to coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
The translucent fabrics make me think I ought to go with links for her:
Quite large, painted this for my Dad's birthday. He brought me a rock broken away from the Coliseum (a trip he took years ago) and I wanted to do something special with it for him. He loves to collect hand painted knights, soldiers and such. So I think he will really like it. I could do more with the base, but the birthday is today and no time left. It took me about a month to paint and put together. I kind of like it the way it is, maybe it showcases the rock and the figure better if it is not so busy with other stuff.
The Shield was the hardest part. I am not so great at freehand and then deciding to muck it up with blood and dirt was a really tough decision. I read in quite a few places that the Pegasus was a popular figure found in Roman art (seen in pottery, mosaics and such.) Hopefully I am not too far off the mark historically, but my dad is more into the overall look than historical accuracy.
3inches 1/24 scale - hope you enjoy
