I rarely see this mini painted. I can't imagine why, it's a great sculpt. Anyway this is my version of Adowyn and Leryn. 

 

 

It's probably because Reaper has so many great sculpts. There's just no end to the selection. I have boxes of great Reaper figures still in their blisters and I probably only have 5% of the best ones they make.

 

These really are terrific sculpts and you did them justice with your beautiful work. The paint job on that wolf is downright awesome.

I picked up a copy of these last month.  They really are a great pair.

 

I love the nuanced earth tones on your painting of the wolf and on her garments, contrasted with her flaming red hair.

Definitely going to put this on the list for the future when I work through some of my backlog. Your rendition of the wolf is incredible.

This one is on my list! You painted them beautifully! I love the red hair, the furry boots, and the wolf's fur so much. Really well done!

I really like the subtle color transitions on arrow feathers, the bow, the white fabric and the wolf fur.

After having seen your version, people are just scared they can't do the justice to it that you did! That's why you don't see so many painted of these.

good paint on both of them but I think the wolf is one of the best I have seen in a long time.

They are really amazing sculpts and you made them come to life with your brilliant painting. I love her hair most, it pops out at you.

      Hey all!  I've been away from the forums for a while, but I've been able to get some hobby time back into my schedule and I'm happy to be back!  I'm starting out by clearing up my Shelf of Shame (as much as I can anyway), starting with Michelle here!
       
      Edit to add: I had a pretty handy little photo setup at my old house, but haven't been able to set anything up since moving last summer... I'll see what I can do about that so you don't all have to look at my grungy thumbnail in every photo.)

      Here is a very familiar face. I painted this guy up for my Brother so he could use him to represent his character in our Dungeons and Dragons games.

      I finally finished this guy up.  Im fairly happy with how everything turned out.  But I feel like I need to work a lot more on my hair and maybe next time try NMM to see how that goes.

      Only had about 45 minutes to paint tonight so I decided to finish the Warg I'd linered yesterday.  So another speed paint, but I'm pretty happy with the result.  
       
      Was thinking of gmork from Neverending Story while painting it.

      While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game.
       
      This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested.  He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale:

       
      This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics.  I left the base white in order to paint it as snow.
       
      Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here.  First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly:


       
      Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail:


       
      Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again:


       
      And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws.  Oh, well, next time.).  I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier:


       
      He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.
