Pochi

Arathanel, Elf Ranger - Bones (Photo Heavy)

Recommended Posts

I like the color scheme, and at least to me, the skin is a good tone for a Drow. I love it when people give some background to their minis, it's always funnier, more interesting. So good detail with the scarf ^^ Great job!

I like it. I like the purple on his quiver too. It stands out as unique. As if it has a story all it's own. 

 

The copper color needs a bit of a bump up in my opinion. Maybe wash it down then use the same color to hit the mids and a brief peak of white to hit the highlights. 

 

Over all I really like it. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks all! I did like his Drowiness (haha). I don't know, for some reason he wasn't as fun for me to paint as the others so I rushed through. I did consider letting him take a dip in Simple Green but decided he was fine for gaming and he was my practice for Drow skin so he served his purpose.

Like him or not, I think you did a very good job on him. I especially like the bit of backstory you created with the scarf.:winkthumbs:

Just saw this - am planning on my Arathanel being a drow also (the whole party is going to be a bunch of evil's as Navatharr is a Gold in my DDS2) and didn't realize you had gone this route as well :)  I had even envisioned his bow done in bone shards like you did.. lol

 

He looks awesome!

Great minds, huh? Haha! Yes, I pictured the bow as bone and antler. It didn't really seem to be wooden to me so I think the bone colors work. Can't wait to see what you do with your adventurers!

      So I'm going to be repainting some D&D Minis for the DDM Guild's Prize support at GenCon 2018. Just really got started last night, but progress is progress. Sorry about the crappy phone picture.
       

       
      So, I'm gonna be keeping track of my progress here. My deadline is the first full weekend of July, the 8th or so. As I'll need to mail them to someone who is actually attending:(

      Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with):
       

       

       
      He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. 
       
      His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf.
       
      Also, this:

       
      Look at at that eye! It’s a halfway decent eye (even if it isn’t quite human)! Calling the whole thing a win on that basis. C&C welcome.

      We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge.
       
      For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/&
       
      The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
       
      Here's the long version of the rules:
       
      You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms.  
       
      On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together!
       
      My general plan is as follows:
      The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate.
