77299 BONES Female Anti Paladin

Recommended Posts

She was one of my favorites! I like your color choices and the drow skin tone made her stand out. The skin also looks so smooth. She's a beauty!

The skin was RMS Dusky Skin:Twilight Blue 3:1,

Then highlighted with successive drops of Maggot White.

This was then glazed with Royal Purple in the shadows.


I was quite pleased with the skin.

Her backside reveals quite a lot of skin, and I think it may have come out better than the front.  Once I get around to taking pictures again, I'll snap some of her reverse profile.

Thank you!


As for more pictures:

Yes and no.

The contest was for your one best picture, so I have 20 or so of different lighting, camera distance, flash, settings: but all basically this angle.  When I pull out the photo rig again, I'll take some different angles of her.

She is a MOST ATTRACTIVE member of the Forces of Unpleasantness. Your BEAUTIFUL array of vivid colors &  WONDERFUL brushwork have produced a dazzling creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you for the praise.


@Tjrez That is the integral base which is part of the mini.  I tried to give it a worn stone look, but with an attempt at light coming from between the stones.


@Kuro Cleanbrush coming from one who is so good at vivid nmm, this is humbling.


For anyone interested:

The copper recipe: brown liner, mahogany brown, tarnished copper, new copper, linen white, and pure white.  Each layer progression went by 1/3.

I glazed in tarnished copper when things got too chalky.

      This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.

      This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.

      The third and final mini from the Layer Up! LTPK, Julie Guthrie’s Hajad the Pirate:

      Not gonna try for any better images, because then you would see how badly I messed up the eyes...
      Mostly by the book, but I skipped the lining as my little brush was becoming temperamental. Of the three minis in this kit, this is the one I was most looking forward to, as it has the most exposed skin of the three (one of my problem areas). Think I oversold the abs a bit too much though.
      Based on issues with the previous minis, I elected to basecoat both weapon blades with Ebony Flesh before applying the metallic. The Filigree Silver included in the kit was too watery to play nice with bare Bonesium, and in any case it was difficult for me to see where the paint actually stuck. Plus, it makes lighter metallics pop.
      It was nice to see darker flesh tones included in this kit. The darkest (non-dark elf) skin tone I had available before was Tanned Skin, but my attempts to mix in darker paints always resulted in a weird shade of sadness.
      All in all, this kit was a good learning experience. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and it was neat seeing the colors build up with each layer. The cartoons were cute too. I just hope that my technique improves moving forward. And that painting eyes gets easier.

      Ok so I had picked up both LTPKs with the intent of hopefully learning some new stuff. Now not that they aren't great resources for new painters, but I had already read most of what was presented in them through a variety of sources on here and through other blogs. So I sat on them. Then I decided they offered a good opportunity to try a few other techniques and decided to give it a shot. So in the basic kit, I'm going to try my hand at some NMM. We'll see how it goes. The Layer up kit I plan to use for OSL. Anyways... onto the painting.
      77042 - Orc Marauder
      I started with  the Orc Marauder thinking he'd be a little easier. Probably should have started with Mangu. I went ahead an documented all of my steps, in case anyone is interested in the parts before NMM. I tried to stick with the paints in the kit for the most part, but decided that once I get to the NMM I'm going to use 1 or 2 colors not included. Pics in the spoiler tag.
