So back to reposting my minis after the account crash.
This is Freebooter winged Vampire Raven, sh swoops down from this ruin to attack Hasslefree's Gen.
I removed Gen's horns, I wanted her to look more human.
Gen's pics are linked cause, nude...mammal parts,
I like the wings, but overall I'm not so proud of this.
Around this time ( years ago) I noticed my eyesight getting worse.
Nowadays I use a visor.
Starting a new WIP for a mini I'm working on for one of the players in my D&D 5e campaign.
One of her characters is a Tiefling Eldritch Knight, so I have selected the glaive-weilding S'Kara to be the starting point for this project...
As you can see, I have just begun. I have primed the mini, and used a pair of pliers to slightly curve her horns, to achieve a more ram-like, less devil-like look.
I'm currently in the process of selecting colours for the cloth portion of her outfit. Any suggestions or ideas? (Fyi, she will have dark brown hair and olive skin).
As always, comments and constructive feedback are always welcome!
Here is a painted Ogre Guard done mainly in washes and glazes of Liquitex inks. I really liked this sculpt and Bobby gave the model some real character. The Bones model was also really solid. There was a strange bit of miscast on the skull on the front of his belt so I made it into a jelly bowl for some squashed hobbit jelly.
(Note: I actually started these a while back, though they are not done yet. This is a bit less of a WIP thread than a how-I-got-here-so-far thread, which I will update as I get my old pictures organized. Questions and comments and critiques are, as always, welcome.)
Last summer Bad Squiddo Games hosted a brief Kickstarter, "My Last Sunrise," of an assortment of Gothic horror minis centered around vampires. These two stood out to me as a little beyond the Hammer horror ethos of most of the other figures. While I was painting them I thought of them as "Feral Vampires," although when I just rechecked they are called "Vampire Thralls."
I dunno. They don't look very thrall-like to me.
Their tag line in the Kickstarter was "Float about in my night dress cooing for scraps? No way. I hunt my own meal."
Anyhow, they have a fun, odd, lady pirate or highwayman look.
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 a slight deviation from how I prime figures. Normally I prime them with Titanium White (which I did here) and then wash over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These I wanted kind of cold-looking, so I washed them with a cold dark grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
That's them on the left. For a while I was including Bad Squiddo's "Dracula" in the photos, so you get a free peek at that too.
And as per usual, the first thing I did was their skin. In contrast to the skin of living humans, I have been painting vampire skin in stark black-and-white mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. The very first layer is thinned Titanium White, then pale shadows of the lightest grey.
