03784: D'Vandra Lukesia

12 posts in this topic

While I mentally work my way back to Saladin, I've been doing some small projects. I'm running a 13th Age game and one of my players is a necromancer. She was quite pleased when I produced D'Vandra for her to use during battles. I decided to paint D'Vandra for brush warmup and as OSL practice. Nothing fancy, however, as this figure will see some wear and tear as it gets moved around the battle field.

 

Here are the first steps. I basecoated using Solid Blue, then highlighted with Ashen Blue and Misty Grey. I may go back and push the highlights to a pure white. I'm not quite satisfied with them but also don't plan on spending a ton of time on this figure so we'll see. I then went back and put sold blue, corporeal shadow, purple shadow, and blue liner into the folds of her dress. Here she is now. The shadows have been a bit washed out by the direct light. :(

I agree with Loth, that color choice is lovely.

I got more, more, more. Found some time to work on her last night and made some good headway (ha ha! I started the hair). I decided I was pretty pleased with the blue so I started work getting more color on the figure. I put some Old Bronze on the rib cage chest plate thing, then I washed it with some brown and blacks to get it to look aged. My plan is to highlight and then put a patina on in some spots.

I started doing the skin in a grey color. This character is a Necromancer (we're playing 13th Age) and is mostly dead (forget the exact name of the ability). Unfortunately, the skin looked awful, kind of like I'd just primed it and left it so I painted over the few highlights I'd done with a mix of Maiden Flesh and a reddish brown.

 

The sash has been basecoated in Gothic Crimson. The hair with Vallejo Air Warlock Purple (I think), then shaded with a mix of gothic crimson and black. Look for some highlights next time!20170424_231546.thumb.jpg.b589d8881ddbab14e3ded2e09d62c08c.jpg

I am so glad I bought this mini as she is so pretty! Who knows when I will get around to painting her.

 

As for your little lady, I am really digging (no pun intended, just a happy accident lol) the colors you are using! Gorgeous!

The fuchsia hair is thrilling. You're making me want to add this figure to my wishlist. 

She may be used as a necromancer, but the themes are reminding me of the ocean. Kinda like an undertaker woman at a lighthouse.

So this figure is getting done all out of order. I have another figure where I'm working on the hair so I did the hair on poor Dvandra before doing the skin. I also started basecoating some of her accessories. The scroll case and the embalming jar will be bone(ish). The satchel is blackened brown right now. The ribbons have been highlighted but not shaded. I'm hoping the shade will raise the contrast enough to make them look good. Right now the highlighting is a little underwhelming. I see a couple places on the hair where I need to fix the blending. Such is the price of accidentally taking such huge pictures (with my phone, even, I need to figure out how to control that).

Time to paint has been hard to come by lately. I have made some more progress on D'Vandra. I've finished her leather straps and put some shading in to her ribbons. I darkened the shade of bone I'm using for the various vessels she's carrying and decided to do more bronze for accents. I still need to attempt the skin. I think I'll do that once I'm satisfied with her external rib cage.

So I did the skin. It's not my favorite but is slowly growing on me. It's very pale and probably won't show the shading until I bother to take nice pictures of her. In the meantime, I've finished the bronze. Still a bit of work to do. I realized, annoyingly, the bottom of shovel is wood, it's just covered with some geegaws. So now I need to repaint that. The roses will get brighter, I like the touch of brightness they bring.

Beautiful colours on this little lady. I really, really like how her skin looks - like one of those creepy evil porcelain dolls, so if she's meant to be mostly dead, then it definitely works.
