Wow, I really like those bright colors. So much life from the base to the figure. Well done!

She really is LOVELY. I love her bronze complexion, her beautiful eyes, & her green hair...unusual hair colors are something I have yet to try. The Autumn colors are GORGEOUSAND the details like the leaves & butterfly are WONDERFUL touches that make the piece unique. VERY WELL DONE!

As always... Beautiful!! 

 

Every time I see you are posting new pics I get super excited!!  I truly truly love everything you do!  Amazing work!

 

Did you see that your Geisha is on the Reaper store as an example for that sculpt?

 

Although I am still waiting for more of the DDS2... but as long as you are posting something I am happy! 

 

Any chance you could do a WIP for when you are creating one of these beautiful bases?  As a newbie to miniatures I have only focused on painting but I am wanting to do some basing.  I would really like to see what materials you use and how you use them.

Thank you! I think she would be fun to get 4 copies of and do them up as the different seasons!

Thank you! I was very happy with how her skin turned out. This is the first time I have tried very dark skin. I can't take credit for the hair color, it was what my player asked for - "bright green" she said. As for the base, I didn't feel like spring flowers would look right on the base with the autumn leaves in her hair and on her bracelets. Luckily I got my hands on those leaf punches and they ended up working great! I should maybe not have used the largest size leaves but I have seen some really big leaves in the fall so.....

You are too sweet! Thank you!

I was very flattered to see the geisha made the store!

I have a couple things left that I need to paint before I get back to DDS2. I am anxious to start on the dragon. I've been thinking of how I want him/her to look and now it is just see if I get it from my imagination to the model!

I actually still have the materials out that I used for the basing and will need a couple more bases made so I will see if I can get a WIP up soon. I am a base procrastinator so doing a WIP would maybe help me out!

The whole color scheme is gorgeous! I like the large leaves. They give the impression that druids help to make the forests grow stronger due to their care. Such a beautiful paint job.

Thank you! It is autumn here so I gathered up some leaves and use my new leaf punches on them and then brushed them with matte sealer. Not sure if it will work. Giving them a few days to see how they look but they look so cool right now! Not sure if they will turn brown.

Did you sculpt the butterfly?  It came out well, and your colors on the whole figure are very nice. ::):  If you didn't sculpt it, I'm curious where you got it.

She looks great!

 

And the base looks amazing.

 

I too share your sentiment on basing. I'd much rather move on to the next figure. However, bases do make a big difference in the visual impact of a figure. So I can't say I hate basing. 

 

I like all the leaves you added to the base.

      Been trying to do so much. Get back into woodworking/pipe making, both kids have baseball, son has scouts, and I've been wanting to paint some more.
       
      So here is a figure I started a while back. I didn't take any before pics but I started to repaint the old areas I had painted.

      Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out:
       
      Front
      Back
       
      Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad).
       
      Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift.
       
      I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks.
       
      All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.

      Dark elves are fun to paint. This came out just so classic looking to me, love it.

      Here's my version of Aurelio Endrino. 
      I feel that there's a certain disconnection between the fact that he is obviously a druid, with a ragged cloack, with a racoon on his shoulder... and his perfectly groomed hair & beard. I guess beeing nature's paladin doesn't mean one should look like Radagast from "The Hobbit" trilogy. 
       
      I tried a very similar look as the one reaper used. Leathers could be blended better I think...

      Opened this one up and got it primed when I noticed a very significant case of mold-slippage. The details on her right side and left arm just didn’t line up, and I don’t have the skill to file/green stuff it away. So, rather than weep and save the mini for a melt table, she became practice! This ended up being a combination of speedpaint, demimetallic experimentation, and basing attempt, 3-4 hours total work including lots of futzing with paint mixes on my palette. The results:
       

       
      Oh, and I made her a Dark Elf to try more white hair.
       
      The purple metal is Royal Purple and Filigree Silver, mixed in varying degrees. Other metallics tended to un-purple the mix too much (except New Gold, but that’s a different look). I think she’s supposed to have gauntlets, but due to the casting issues these became cloth sleeves.
       
      In the end she turned out far better than expected, so I’m glad I didn’t give up. One less potential resident of the shelf of shame. Comments and critiques welcome, as always.
