Nerali Bust - ReaperCon!

Recommended Posts

Quick hair tests. I don't actually want a natural red, so I'm not really sure which to do.


Left: Natural red hair

Middle: Natural red hair with red wash

Right: Fire colors



Edit: Hair Colors. I'm liking the Fire Red/Cinnamon Red wash the most in the middle.

Not pictured, black hair: Nightshade Purple, Stormy Gray, Spectral White.

The middle one gives the most surreal impression to me. The red seems to be reading more actual red, than natural red-head on that one, imo. The others seem like they're natural red-heads with black dye. All are pretty. :poke:

I love all the testing you are doing! I probably need to try this. Also, your bust turned out amazing (I almost asked you where you got it, before I remembered you sculpted her). Good luck on the continuation!

      Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up. I plan on posting daily here - I might as well continue my daily art streak!
      Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot."
      Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)!
      Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!

      Hello art family! Y'all might remember my 2016 thread, where I focused on making a habit of drawing every day. 2017 was wild and I decided against a thread here, but I have continued that art streak through this year with a slight change - painting and sculpting was allowed to sustain that miniatures habit.  
      I'm getting a bit of a headstart with my 2018 thread! I'd love to learn some fancy traditional art school basics, and I think a lot of these things transfer over to most any type of art, like mini painting and sculpting.
      I see lots of friends here talking about color, lighting, and MORE CONTRAST, and I think we should check those cool things out!
      When I start a new subject, I will list (but not link) books, websites, or other references so you can follow along if you'd like.

      I've had a chunk of antler sitting in my drawer of basing materials for years, waiting for the right figure to use it on.  I recently acquired the Bombshell Miniature Morihalda bust, and inspiration stuck!  The antler was cut at a weird angle but I was able to use a hacksaw and a miter box to square off the top.  I have the dilemma of trying to figure out a) the right orientation of the bust to the base, and b) if I want to fare in the bust pedestal to the antler using green stuff.  I plan on putting a couple of pins in her base, and then matching sockets in the antler.  I figure I can blank off the top of the antler with shrink wrap and then do the sculpting work (if I choose to pursue that) which would enable me to separate them again for priming/painting purposes.  Anyway, I've come to you brave forumites for advice!  I've got four pictures attached showing the four possible orientations of the bust/antler.  Let me know which one you think is the most appealing choice!  I'm partial to #3 myself, but my wife likes #4.

      (Holy moly, I haven't done a WIP since Spring 2016)
      HOLY MOLY, how have I never painted a dragon??
      I went through my stuff - I have a BOX of unpainted dragons. Thanks, Bones III. We're fixing that right now!

      My rolls from this morning (also here):

      I actually got some really lovely rolls here. Even though one of them is pure black, which limits me to 4 colors instead of 5, the heather blue and cloudy grey look nice together.
      Unfortunately for contrast, they sort of... blend? Together? Learned artists, what's the word?
      If I were to take all the color out of the heather blue, it would look exactly like the cloud grey.
      I did check to see if my eyes were learning - they are!

      So here is my dragon. My 3 rolled colors on the right, and my liner and white on the left. He's pinned but I still need to do some quick green stuffing!
