The last entry from my Learn To Paint Kit: Layer Up! I am very pleased with this mini. It's not perfect, and there are some parts which didn't come out like I had hoped, but I learned a lot and I think some parts came out very well. I tried to focus a lot of attention on the little details. I would really like to hear what you all think, I am trying to improve with each mini. The parts of this mini which I think I struggled with the most were the True Metallic Metals. I don't like them. I really want to try to learn how to do NMM, as I think those look so much nicer. Thank you for your advice!
The Steampunk Busts Girls by Scale75. A innovative project for collectors, painters and even gamers with desire to paint.
Large picture of the individual ladies behind the spoiler:
This is a catgirl pirate ( "Nyamaunir-Piratin"), figure #15503C from Das Schwarze Auge, produced under license by Ral Partha Europe (which is not Ral Partha).
She is a wee bit on the small side. Here from left to right are a cat person (Khaliman) from the French "Alkemy" game, our little kee kat pirate, Reaper's 77340: Avatar of Sekhmet, and Reaper's 03478: Tawny Firehair, Cat Girl.
Here she is up close. She has some nice details and a more fuzzy appearance than most of the cat people minis I've seen.
This is my standard priming: A thinned coat of Titanium White allowed to dry for a full day, then a wash with thinned Burnt Umber. It's related to Renaissance painting techniques and I find it gives a good warm foundation to start from.
I was painting her at the same time as some wolves, for economy of paint. I figure I'm going to paint her like a grey cat.
The first coat of paint is a light grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened a good deal with white.
Here's a back view:
It may be noticed I'm a little casual how I apply my paint. There are bits not covered and the paint has been thinned down and it isn't always the same opacity because of that and the under-brown shows through.
I mixed a slightly more translucent, darker version of the same grey and added some more.
Then I took some matte pure Carbon Black and indicated in her eyes, nose, mouth, and claws. I put an undercoat of black on her sabers as long as I was at it, since I find it looks very good under silver.
Tune in later to find out what's next ...
I saw amazing French sculptor Gautier Giroud posting up WIP pics of this amazing bust and knew I just HAD to have him, picked him up from Cinemodeles-creations. He's jumped up in my queue today while I'm home from work on a personal day.
Here's the the cast in resin pieces, held together by some blue tack so I could take the pics of the resin -
I've used my airbrush for the first time today, primed up Deadpool and 4 giants (the giants first to get the hang of the airbrush).
Here's where he's at now -
I drilled holes in his nose so that I can do the smoke sniffing scene as it's meant to be from the movie, which I'll probably use cotton or some other material to complete the effect.
Going to get started on some painting of him now.
