By Lord of the Dish Pit
She was the most difficult mini I've come across in quite a while. The mold lines put up a stiffer fight than usual, and figuring out certain details was more difficult than I expected. (It wasn't until putting on the final touches that I realized the thing on her arm was a crab!)
I also made a point of trying different color mixes than usual. Her skin was a combo of Vampire Skin and Linen White with an over generous wash of Copper Verdigris that doesn't seem to be showing as much in the pictures. Her hair is a mix of various blendings of Dragon Blue and Christmas Wreath. Her squid friend is Icy Violet with a dab of Linen White. Her shroud is a mix of Rainy Gray/Linen White with a wash of Viper Green and highlight of Viper Green/Linen White.
Her belt is a combo of Leather Brown and Rainy Grey, with the leaves (?) Holly Berry/ Hearth Fire. The crab is a combo of Highlight Orange, Brown Wash and Hearth Fire. The base is Buckskin Pale and Brown Wash.
I'm rather happy with how she came out, having been nervous about a pale skin tone next to pale clothing. Her skeletal friends from the stocking assortment were much easier to deal with and have joined the ranks of the Pumpkin Guard.
Hello! I've recently started working on a diorama, and a friend of mine urged me to post here. The only thing that is missing from the pictures below is the kelp that will be behind the kraken (on the little pads on the back side of the base). It is some floppy aquarium kelp that I"m currently trying to figure out how to get it to stand up straight. Tips, tricks, C&C are all welcomed.
Here is the pre-primed coral wall in varying states of sand coverage. The coral is planned to be very brightly colored.
You can see the kelp pads in the pic above.
Base with Kraken for staging verification:
Here is the almost finished diver, who goes in the slot in front of the Kraken. This drab, dirty human looking down at his feet while the kraken looms above is one of my favorite parts, tbh.
Painted this guy while practicing my drybrushing and paint blending. I think he turned out pretty cool, although I accidently stripped a little paint off the base because I touched it too soon after adding the matte varnish! Lesson learned: let them sit a bit after spraying varnish. As always, I appreciate advice and critiques. Thanks!
I wanted to paint Mary for my oldest stepdaughter, she is into synchronised swimming and I believe part fish.
Since she is also a bit of a scrooge I added a bit of treasure.
Off to the start,
Sculpted a rock with millyput.
There will be more to follow.
