BEAUTIFULLY painted as the Warrior Babe is, it is The Shield that makes the piece. That is a WONDERFULLY expressive EVIL visage. Your color choices for Shield, Babe, & base are OUTSTANDINGVERY WELL DONE!

Very beautiful paint job. I especially like the marble base and the shield blind eye. Your nmm and the skin tone came out pretty nice as well.

Gratitude for your love and appreciation, brothers and sisters. I am enjoying the trend of color theory, though expect more effects on the horizon.

 

May your blends be smooth. :D

      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.

      (Note: I actually started these a while back, though they are not done yet. This is a bit less of a WIP thread than a how-I-got-here-so-far thread, which I will update as I get my old pictures organized. Questions and comments and critiques are, as always, welcome.)
       
      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games hosted a brief Kickstarter, "My Last Sunrise," of an assortment of Gothic horror minis centered around vampires. These two stood out to me as a little beyond the Hammer horror ethos of most of the other figures. While I was painting them I thought of them as "Feral Vampires," although when I just rechecked they are called "Vampire Thralls."
       
      I dunno. They don't look very thrall-like to me.
       
      Their tag line in the Kickstarter was "Float about in my night dress cooing for scraps? No way. I hunt my own meal."
       
      Anyhow, they have a fun, odd, lady pirate or highwayman look.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is a slight deviation from how I prime figures. Normally I prime them with Titanium White (which I did here) and then wash over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These I wanted kind of cold-looking, so I washed them with a cold dark grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
       
      That's them on the left. For a while I was including Bad Squiddo's "Dracula" in the photos, so you get a free peek at that too.

       

       
      And as per usual, the first thing I did was their skin. In contrast to the skin of living humans, I have been painting vampire skin in stark black-and-white mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. The very first layer is thinned Titanium White, then pale shadows of the lightest grey.

      This is the classic Reaper 02551, Monique Denoir. There are some gorgeously painted examples of her out there.
       
      Some of this post is quoted from an earlier post, since I find that giving information in each thread is useful, even if in the big picture it's redundant.

      Monique Denoir is a Werner Klocke scupt. Her face is classical and lovely. She's certainly popular, and there are many beautifully painted versions out there.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. (I seem to be having a little trouble with it crackling just a bit in some areas, though.) It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers (even though, as I've said before, with a vampire you don't necessarily want "warmth".)

       

       
      I like to paint skin first as something of the undermost layer. After I have the skin more or less smooth and correct I paint the features.
       
      I have been painting up vampires with stark white skin because I don't seem to have the knack to make them look undead if there is even a little flesh tone in their skin.
       
      This is almost the only time I ever mix grey from pure black and white (rather than a complex mix of brighter colors). The flatness of tone conveys that something is wrong with the individual, and the simplicity of color mix is very easy to shade.
       
      I started with a thin wash of pure Titanium White on her face, bust, and hands (I got her right hand wrong, I see in the photos. I missed her right thumb and painted up part of the sword instead. Be assured Werner Klocke's sculpt is much less clumsy than that. I will correct it later.).

       

       
      The first approximation of shadows are added, mixed from simple Titanium White and Carbon Black.
       
       
      And some darker and lighter greys. At the moment the shading is very stylized.
