Stared work on this guy finally! 

 

I sculpted the base myself. I really like that he is slight bending at the knees which made him standing on the stairs i made look more authentic.

On to the painting!

Texture is the name of the game from this weekend. 

  • GW: Vomit Brown (which is like a yellow brown) on the tunic. Several coats until I could not see grey from the primer. 
  • GW: Vomit Brown & Leather White (my favorite paint bottle ::): ) [4:1] - To do some upper highlights on the all the raised areas.
  • Dotting or Stippling with a Mixture: GW Vomit Brown mixed with Walnut brown. So the color was a little darker than the tunic's primary color. 
  • Then stippled or dotted with Walnut brown over THE ENTIRE THING. 
  • After that I did some diluted brown washes pushing into the recesses 
  • and some re-highlighting, re-shadowing, etc etc.

The pants:

  • Painted in Leather White
  • highlighted in PURE White
  • washed in Muddy Brown (which is a green brown.)

The bag:

  • Painted Royal Purple, highlighted with Leather white then washed in Muddy Brown

Got a little more progress on him: Hair, Fur, Bow, Quiver, belt, knife

 

The front picture shows a better view of his tunic and the texture I attempted to add.

 

I tried for a bone handle skinning knife. I thought the quiver looked nice. It's one done yet but I like the two toned.

 

What do y'all think?

Oh Fir'a!!!!! Got more done last night. I've been cleaning my desk off and what not so I had plenty of space... what that has to do with this... You'll find out when the package arrives. Muahaha

 

So I decided to take a crack at the hair "shine" effect. I worked on the skin: Leather white, wasted in a Green wash, dried, Washed in a Reaper flesh wash (which is a red/brown tone) then leather white again with highlights of pure white. Not sure if i'm done but for a table top piece I think it would be fine if called it done.

 

Quiver and knife: added some free hand stitching. Makes the attempt at the bone handle look better in my opinion. What do y'all think?

Started working on the base a little while ago and forgot to post it. Turning our better than I thought. As it is I'm leaving but I will probably go back and do more on it later.

Additionally, I did some more detailing bits-n-bobs that you can't really see in the picture. 

________________________________________________________________

THE BASE

  • Steps are painted in a Terran Khaki which has this kind of green to it as well.
  • Progressive thin layers until it was solid
  • Vallejo Green Wash over the steps with a focus on pushing toward the "end" of the step.
  • Next, I took a Cloudy Grey and diluted it down and washed it into the recesses of the steps. 
  • Kind of using it as a blending color for the Khaki and Green wash
  • UPPER Steps Base: Cloudy Grey, VLJ German Grey (Reaper does not appear to have an equivalent but the closes match is Stormy grey)
  • Painted in Cloudy Grey then diluted down 3:1 the German Grey and pulled it back to the end of the circle base.
  • Highlights, which are not very visible in this picture: Leather White used to hit the tips of the steps.

I want to be able to refer back to this.

::): Cool! That reminders me. I need to put a break down of the process for the base. I will add that to the post above. :)

Alright, last photo. This piece is done but I wanted to put in the base.

 

I added some texture to it. sprinkled on some flocking.  This photo is not great as I want the final show-off ones to display it better.

      Who says elves have to be sprightly woodland-lovers? (Oh, and hey, @Beagle, I'm painting elves!).
       
      I spotted this recent Reaper release, sculpted by Werner Klocke, and thought he looked interesting.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.

       

       
      I usually start with the skin on character minis. A good mix for Caucasian-type flesh in the pale ranges is straight Burnt Sienna and Titanium White, which is how I started him.

       

       
      I laid in a wash of dark blackish mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna over his hair and shaded his skin a bit with of Burnt Umber in the skin mix.

       

       
      Went in and painted his face in some detail.
       

       
      Later: More!

      Paint by: Arc 724 Sculpted by: Geoff Valley  
      Title: Usidore the Blue
      The second figure done in honor of Hello From The Magic Tavern. This is Usidore the Blue. I was very pleased how he turned out. I got the red face of a wizard that drinks a lot of mead. Ha! As well as his staff that I sculpted in the rock based on the lore of the type of stone he has in it. Finally the bird is paint to be a sparrow - his favorite type of bird. The base is also sculpted.

      This is Hasslefree HFD104 Drya Lafhelgasdottir, sculpted by Tre Manor, and not, as I identified all through the WIP thread, a Red Box Games dwarf. I think I was confused because she was by Tre Manor.
       
      She is also the last, the seventh, of the dwarves I painted for the project "Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs," an effort both to get some dwarves painted up for general gaming use, and to make a group of Jadeborn for a game of Exalted.
