02923: Princess of Hell as Vellexia from PF AP WotR #4 - Exchange Mini for Keianna

I like her a lot! I haven't seen that color scheme on a succubus really, except maybe watching Lost Girl. Well painted and well designed!

Always love a great painted Succubus! Those leathery bat-like wings feel more true to a human-skinned demon, I think. Looking at the module and at your work, I also think you've nailed some similarities down, too.

That's great! You can see the resemblance to the module art. Very nice mini!

No problem. I'm glad you enjoy her.

 

I of course looking at the photos see little imperfections. :lol: 

 

Like the chipped paint on her left most wing tip. Which I didn't notice after the wings fell off for the 3rd time. 

 

(I hope they didn't fall off in transit, and if they did, I did include that little bottle of crazy glue. :poke:)

Echoing the above, the wings and overall color scheme are very real feeling.  Again, I hope that you consider imitation the most sincere form of flattery.

Well done

I guess I could have gone more red on the wings. The wings were the last thing for me to get done. (Besides the base.) and by the point I was just rushing to get her done before we moved (last year). I wasn't successful, because my husband packed up my paints 2 weeks before we moved. (He want to be sure all the big furniture pieces were accounted for. So the movers could move them.)  So I didn't go back and look at the source photo again until I went to post her up here. (And by now, I just wanted her done, so I could expunge myself of the guilt.) 

 

So there ya go.

I don't use the triads for skin color. I feel the triads don't go dark enough for the shadow or light enough for the highlight. Also I like more of a color shift in the shadow. For example, I'm far more likely to use a tanned flesh or a tanned shadow for the actual shadow color (maybe even mixing in a ruddy brown). Then I'll mix whatever I've picked for my mid-tone and highlight up from there, and then the same for the first highlight color and then to white. I do not remember what colors I used here. Next time I do flesh I'll note them down.

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.

      Has anyone come up with stats for pathfinder for Ma'al Drakar?

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      Here's another recent paint.
      It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not.
      This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head."
       
      I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white.
      So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows.
      I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush.
       
      I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White.
       
      C&C Welcomed.

      Here's Kul-Inkit, a character from the fifth installment of the Pathfinder "Iron Gods" Adventure Path (#89: "Palace of Fallen Stars").
      I sculpted this figure in early 2017 and painted her last week (January 2018).
      She is a great warrior but unhappy in her role as consort to Kevoth-Kul, "the Black Sovereign", nominal ruler of Numeria.  (He is also Reaper figure #60189.)  Your characters might meet her in his palace.
      Numeria blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi.  A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there many years ago, and people have been plundering the wreckage.
      The overall color scheme is from the art in the book, but I posed her differently when I sculpted her, since the pose in the book wouldn't have worked as well for casting in miniature.
      The concept art reminded me of the model Linda Evangelista, who I think had this hairstyle at some point in her career.
      For the non-metallic metals (NMM) on the axe and shield and back-plate, I used several colors and scratchy strokes at various angles with very fine brushes.  Just trying something different.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek
