Pingo paints 62102: Numenera: Jack as an Alchemical for "Exalted"

13 posts in this topic

One of our players is playing an Adamant Caste Alchemical in a game of Exalted (2nd ed., heavily modded).  Info about them is semi-classified by the GM, but they seem to be sort of crystalline with interchangeable parts, a little like cyborgs.  The Numenera Jack with the crossbow (or pickaxe?) arm seemed a decent fit, as the character is supposed to be somewhat androgynous.

 

Here is the figure mounted on a fender washer for stability, primed white and washed with Burnt Umber.

I painted her skin a soft turquoise blue mixed from Phthalo Blue, Hansa Yellow, and Titanium White.  Normally I finish the skin before doing further layers but I didn't this time.  The blue is a bit of a placeholder until later.

I mixed a dull greenish from some Yellow Ochre and a touch of Carbon Black and slopped it on her base.

 

I mixed a violet from Ultramarine Blue and Quinacridone Magenta and lightened it with Titanium White to paint her hair, which is supposed to look a little crystalline.

I added more layers to the hair.

I always love hearing you talk about the paint mixing. :)

I mixed a soft mauve from Red Iron Oxide and Ultramarine Blue with Titanium White and painted her bodice.  Normally this combination looks terribly dull, but it seems to work here.

I worked it up with lights mixed with more Titanium White, and used it (roughly) on her boots too.

I put some glowy yellow on her base.  This is just Yellow Ochre mixed with a lot of Titanium White in thin washy blobs.

good color choice on the hair highlights

Looking back at the image in the store after painting this next bit, I think I was subconsciously influenced by Martin Jones' color choices.

 

Well, okay, so this is my take on them.

 

I painted her scarves and her inner leggings, the part with diagonal quilting, red.  This is straight Red Iron Oxide; any shading is the Burnt Umber showing through.

And then I painted her bolero jacket, outer leggings, the part with the ribbed quilting, and cap dead black (Yup.  Totally influenced by Martin Jones' paint job.).

Shaded her leggings and scarves with some transparent violet mixed from (if memory serves) Ultramarine Blue and Quinacridone Magenta.

I painted light gold stripes along her leggings and the edges of her cap using a primrose mixed from Titanium White, Hansa Yellow Light, and a touch of Yellow Ochre.

I finally painted her face and skin.  This is backwards to my normal method, where that would be painted first.  This skin color is a mix of Ultramarine Blue, Phthalocyanine Green, and Titanium White.  I also painted her crossbow and / or pickaxe.

I painted her belts and straps a layered blue, starting with a medium blue mixed from Phthalo Blue and Burnt Umber and a little Titanium White, adding Ultramarine Blue and more Titanium White to lighten it as I layered.

 

I'm also building up blue reflected light on her scarves and arm and side and base.

More blue lights built up with various mixes of Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, less and less Burnt Umber, and Titanium White.

A little more purple on the boots and I think she might be done.

      By itself this figure is 02863: Female Werewolf by James van Schaik, but to be clear I got mine as part of the set 03495: DHL Classics: Lady Lycanthropes. I have two copies, but of course they are sold singly.
       
      It's an evocative little figure, with a slim build and fur suggestive of long hair. The tail is a separate piece which was too thin for my pinning skills, so it is simply glued on.
       
      I decided to paint these two in realistic wolf style. - That is, colored as real wolves would be, though distorted.
       
      After cleaning up mold lines, I prepared them by priming thinly with Titanium White and washing over with Burnt Umber.

       
      I also threw a quick green on the bases mixed from Yellow Oxide, Hansa Yellow and a small amount of Carbon Black (yellow + black is a fun and unexpected way to make bright greens!).

       
      Those broccoli bases caused me endless trouble.  Note the tiny white specks on them?  Those are tiny pits where the paint didn't take. I will eventually come to spend all sorts of time poking with specially thinned paint and tiny brushes trying to eliminate those white spots.

      This started out as a series of posts in the Randomness thread as I was noodling about with ideas. But things in Randomness get lost fast, and people seemed interested.
       
      So here is how I developed a pen and ink drawing from a preliminary sketch to (hopefully - not quite there yet) a finished drawing.
       
      I'm currently involved in a game set in the World of Darkness combined with Exalted. My PC is a (former) vampire with a certain amount of mental baggage.  This drawing started as a tiny doodle in my sketchbook about The Beast Within, a major leitmotif in White Wolf's vampire games, as seen in the character's House of Memory (a sort of mental structuring invented in the real world in classical times to help people remember awesome amounts of stuff).

       
      The original sketch was about 4 by 8 cm.
       
      The text (if anyone is interested) is "... I could see what of my character was now imposed. Alien ways --" "You weren't frightened?" "They are only memories -- Diagnoses, if you will, of the actual thoughts. They cannot harm me."

      This is another of the PCs for the "Exalted" campaign set in White Wolf's World of Darkness which I'm currently involved in.
       
      This character was a medieval Persian vampire who reverted to human when she Exalted as a Zenith caste Solar.  Among other things, she has a sword which shines with the light of the Sun.
       
      The figure is from Hasslefree, HFA004 "Kat", sculpted by Kev White.  There's a WIP thread here.
       
      The lighting effect changes a lot at different angles so I included lots of pictures.

      This is a figure from the Goth set from the game "Wild in the Streets" by Slow Death Games.  Thanks to FishNJeeps for directing me to them when I needed miniatures of modern people in goth-punk wear for a World of Darkness game.
       
      I painted up the figure as a vampire.  It didn't originally have any facial hair; that's all painted on.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread.  So as a quick note, although I have seen people able to do wonderfully subtle and menacing vampires who still look like vampires, I find that unless I paint mine in stark black and white they look like regular people.
