03507: Collin Coalshadow, Thief by Cyr

Recommended Posts

I should have taken some pictures before the beard went on. 

 

The face was BEAUTIFUL. It looked rather like my fairy lady's face. He was gorgeous. The most feminine face I could have possibly done... on a dude. A dude with a twisted smile, but still. 

 

So I tried to cover it with some stubble. Looked a bit off at the lips. So to conceal that his lips are a bit funky, I went "heck with it" and gave him a twirly mustache and a goatee along with the five o'clock shadow. 

 

Did it work? Or does he still look like a lady with a stick-on beard? Nothing wrong with androgyny but that isn't my intention with this figure either. How can I get him to look like a young cocky dude thief? More eyebrow? AHHHHH Painting dudes is difficult.

The original face before beard was so good I could have done Youtube make-up tutorials for women off it. Great... but that wasn't the plan.

He actually reminds me of George Michael and certain other guys who, though being less than typically masculine feature-wise, have strikingly thick/dark beards.  The guy from The Office (maybe) who was also in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Maybe a less thick stubble would help--just a light wash of beard-color?

I glazed over the stubble with the skin tone color to tone down the sidebeard. I like it - makes the goatee stand out more. Thanks!

He brings to mind a few Guys who were more pretty than handsome. Davy Jones, David Cassidy, & Michael Smith come to mind; Michael Smith is/was my Brother in Law. When he was a young man he looked like David Cassidy's better looking kid brother....now he looks like Jackie Cooghan (Uncle Fester). All that aside, there is something swashbuckling handsome about the Guy that brings to mind the Three Musketeers. This has UBERCOOL potential. OUTSTANDING WORK!

      Following the conclusion of Storm King's Thunder, our group has started The Curse of Strahd, and I decided to play a thief. Going through my collection of minis, the River Widow mini from ReaperCon called out to me. As usual, after cleaning the few bits of flash and mold lines, I paused... How did I want to base her. I've made extensive use of the Ruined Temple Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku... but for this game I decided that I was going to use the Fishscale brick pattern which I'd picked up during their Black Friday sale. I clipped the tab connecting her feet, leaving only 2 spikes from each foot to anchor her into the greenstuff. 
       

       
      Once the greenstuff had cured, I glued her in place, and after waiting for the superglue to dry, I primed her with Reaper's Brown Liner. I then immediately tackled her eyes, trying to mirror what Derek did on his.  Seriously check this out, it's amazing... 
       

       
      So... I didn't quite achieve this, but it's probably the closest I've ever managed. Also I don't have a camera (or the skill) to capture a pic of this quality. 
       

       
       
      I basecoated her flesh with Ruddy Flesh, and then used Tanned Shadow on top of that. The bodice is based with Rich Indigo with Burgundy Wine over it. Her hair and lips are Auburn Shadow. 
       


      So far, so good, but I've got a lot more work to go.

      Enjoy another rendition of 01608: Reaper 25th Anniversary - Diva the Blessed. Part of the Autumn palette series with NMM, Texture, and Effects. I know it's a great sculpt when I want to paint it again.
       
      Enjoy!

      Greetings!
       
      I felt that "Dub" had something of a "Sinbad" feel to him so I painted his baggy pants & shirt in vibrant colours & contrasted these with a blue/green cloak. I kept his skin tone tanned but in retrospect, this does seem to be a little too close to his leather armor & braces for my liking.
      He does have a mold line right down the middle of his face which is unfortunate as it makes his nose & mouth look a little strange......
