Mel the Necromancer by Cyr - Thoroughly Slytherin (Pic Heavy)

Recommended Posts

Ooooh a necromancer!  I love necromancers!

 

You're layering is awesome!  My favorite is the skin!  Oh wait the green!!  No no no the blue is the best! No the hair!  No the skull!  No the scythe! 

 

Heck, the whole thing is super awesome and she is beautiful!  You did an amazing job!

 

See this is why I don't go to the CMPA I wouldn't be able to keep up with you guys!  I have a lot of practicing to do!

Honestly, she isn't a figure I would have picked either. Sir Cyr picked her, and I decided to slap some paint on. She has a lot of pleasing-to-paint features. You got ample skin to practice that and tattoos, good cloth to work with (with holes to add detail), a few fiddly bits, and a fun weapon. And she is relatively open, so there isn't much contortion needed to get the brush where it needs to go. Only downside is her club foot. Instead of filing that, I painted the bottom to give the illusion of a nice foot.

She is a BEAUTIFULLY EVIL creation, sinister & lovely at the same time. Your work with brush & eye for color are as OUTSTANDING as ever. I love her skin tones. VERY WELL DONE once more!

Tattoo and fingernails. That's some detail there. Good to know about the foot. Amazing paint job.  ^.^

The nailpolish is to 1) provide a tiny bit of red on her right side to balance the skull on her left. It isn't much, but I thought it would help a bit. And... 2). Her fingers on the right have a hideous mold line through them, and I had no idea how to make it look decent by filing, and it was too deep to blob stuff into I thought. So I kinda hid the almost severed fingers by making the fronts look painted. If I took a photo from the side it might look like she has bloody finger stumps attached to the staff :poke:

I will echo the others on how nicely painted she is.  That bony piece on her chest is the oddest part to me, but that's not because of your paint.

Too deep for green stuff or some other putty?  I might try using putty, but it depends.  If a cast is so bad it would take lots of work to fix, that's the kind of thing to report to Reaper.  Sometimes it is a flaw in the mold, but it could just be a bad cast.  If the mold is damaged and hasn't been replaced with a new one, lots of people could be suffering the same issue.

I'd need to get finer sculpting tools than I have to deal with it. The finger tips are severed and shifted by about the spacing of the fingers, so it would be a mess to fix properly. They're sortof offset - it is odd. When I get back home I'll snap a photo. 

 

There is a fine mold line on top of her hood, and one visible on the inside of her cloak. I managed to mostly hide the one on her leg with some ardcoat. I wouldn't be too surprised if her cast is a little wonky.

      I painted this guy a while ago, and as soon as it was previewed in the Kickstarter, I was reminded of Slade from the old Teen Titans cartoon. His design worked really well as a basis for the paint scheme here.
       
      The pictures were taken on the painting table, as I never really got around to taking some in the photo booth, unfortunately.

      Hello again, friends and neighbours! 
       
      Several years ago, after the Bones I kickstarter, I made a thread to help people who had just signed up for a ridiculous amount of Bones minis get used to painting and encourage them to just jump right on in!  This thread was even more successful than I thought and, much to my astonishment, brings new people to our hobby even today.  I thought it was time for a fresh update that might be just as helpful, and maybe give us something to point new people to when they first decide to pick up a brush and become One of Us.
       
      Often when new people come by and have no idea where to start, the first general question is: what are your aims and requirements?  This basically breaks down to: do you need pieces done for a game, or do you want to paint just to paint?  The idea behind this WIP is to give us something to show people the difference in practice.  So with the able assistance of Guindyloo, I will be painting Thanis in my usual fast-but-decent method and she will show us how nice things can be when you spend some time on them. 
       
      There are, of course, many ways to paint a mini so this thread is just an example of our present working methods and by no means serve as the only way to do it, or the final word on the matter.  Those of you just joining our hobby may have your own ideas about how to do things, and by all means you should use your own best judgment!  All we do here is just give you some things to think about.
       
      So on to the mini you came in here to see, and I hope this thread proves useful! 
       
      Here's my Thanis, fresh from her blister pack:

      I've been collecting minis for almost 30 years and finally getting around to doing what I've been wanting to do which is actually paint them.  Started a couple months ago with a few Dark Sword Critter Kingdom minis and an old Grenadier dragon.  And now this, which is my first Reaper mini and an attempt at NMM.
       

       
      C&C welcome.

      I painted this lovely lady over the last week as my first project post-Reapercon. I wanted to apply some of the things that I learned but also have fun with her. 
      She was a really great learning experience, thanks to everyone who gave me great feedback in my WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77557-01450-all-hallow’s-eve/&page=1
       
      This was my first experience “flying blind” with NMM, as on previous attempts, I’d followed the highlighting of other painters’ examples. There is no painted example in the store yet, so I had to just wing it. @Kuro Cleanbrush gave me some much appreciated advice that I’m definitely going to keep using moving forward. 
       
      This was was my first attempt at OSL, it’s not perfect by any means, but I’m pretty pleased with it. 
       




       
      Let me know what y’all think, criticism is always very much wanted - it helps me learn and improve!
