One of my favourite works: freebooter miniatures succubus.
Used a "slannesh" palette, mainly purple. I'm happy with the outcome. To give it a little more impact I tried a freehand on the wings. A pretty simple one, I think it looks cool, but it could be better if I dared to try to shadow/highlight it instead of using a plain color. There is more contrast on her skin & wings; here on this photo it doesn't look good because it was a pretty intense white light and it makes it all look the same...
I like to name my miniatures but I wasn't feeling creative here, so I just named her Lillith...
Btw lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
Pretty happy with this overall, but I would paint a 2nd one given the chance. The wings are weird in the back, almost as if they were not part of the original sculpt and it makes for an odd fit with the serving platter arm. She's got wrist warmers on each arm and, sorry, they're just ugly. Not happy with the face. Repainted it four times and finally just had to stop.
By Sophie was taken
Another older sculpt I wanted to knock out real quick, this was maybe three hours’ work (not counting stepping away to let paint dry, etc.). To be honest, it looked amazing when everything was just a basecoat, it’s the parts after that that throw me. Anyway, Sirithis (links for nudity):
Still haven’t found a nipple color that works. The search continues. Comments and critiques welcome.
So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr.
After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next.
As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan.
I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature.
So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her?
It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again.
As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use.
Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ...
... Sisters of Battle ...
hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly.
I'll take it!
Well then - primed her and started painting.
But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one:
Beginning my theorizing for ReaperCon. I originally liked the Incubus and was heading toward making it primarily focus around him but was having trouble finding something to work with other than just landing on something. Then I figured he could be in a duel with another winged being. Then I got to the point where I was thinking the Darkspawn Succubus might make for a good opponent for our teenage boy... so I ordered them.
So I could discuss this with my mentor, I took some approximate photos for a discussion point:
And by the time my lesson rolled around, I was thinking I could call it something like:
We talked about how to work around this and I have a better understanding of where and why I can and should do some things. And ways to show what I am trying to convey more clearly. This was very very helpful. As I get into dealing with the figures and bringing this to life, I'll try to show what we talked about and why I am doing them.
Let the countdown begin! 187 Days till ReaperCon...
