She's awesome! 

 

Question! What methodology do you use to do the striped pants like that? Those are very uniformly spaced stripes and still shaded so darn well!

Thanks!  ::):  The way I did her pants was to first paint them their off-white base color and shade and highlight that.  Then, once the pants were finished in that way, I freehanded the lines with a very dark red.  Once the lines were in place, I went back over the portions of the lines that were to be lighter with increasingly bright reds until I felt that the stripes were suitably highlighted too.  The big thing to keep in mind is that, while the stripes look fairly uniform, there is actually quite a lot of error there.  I have been happy to discover that textures and simple patterns are actually quite forgiving to paint!  I'm not sure if our eyes just "filter" a little based on what we expect to see or what, but I do know that it has been so freeing to realize that I can just have fun with some of these patterns without worrying about making them 100% even!

I love this. I really enjoy your painting style. It's not a way I would ever think to paint, but I love looking at it. Thanks for sharing your work, as always.

Absolutely amazing!  You are truly a hero to me! I know I can't achieve your level but I hope to one get as close as possible!

 

I look forward to seeing your next miniature.

 

Oh, one question.  Is the base made just using some Green Stuff and carving it to look like wood planks?

Great job! There is a lot to like on this mini. My particular highlights are the blades and gold tones. I also love the roughed up black leather.

Ahoy matey!  Right on time for talk like a pirate day's month!  She's adorable!!  Great work on the skin- I think the highlights work well and it still retains warmth. It's hard to keep that sometimes with highlighting.  Awesome work!!
