A couple of early holiday presents for a couple of good friends. Up first, Queen Ileosa of Korvosa, in fairly traditional holiday colors:
My apologies to any Persians who I might've offended with the poor freehand rendition of the flag on the fan. That's the best that I managed to do it.
Also, if you notice some little bits of red on the base under her dress, that's because I'd tried to go with kind of a red carpet look at first, before deciding that it was bad and just doing a sort of snowy base would look much better.
And Baba Yaga, in a somewhat dingier take on the color scheme:
Gah, this mini was horrible to work with. There was so much flash on the left hand that I thought giving her gloves would look more sensible than melting flesh, and I had to cut off most of the bar under the feet because it was too misshapen to fit into the base slot as it was (and even after that, she looks very off-balance). Then I had a mishap while gluing on the arm and ended up spilling superglue all down the back of it, but fortunately, that dried transparently enough that it only needed some minor touch-ups (plus some matte varnish to kill the shine, but I was going to do that all over it anyway).
No blog link this time, since I felt like dissecting the process of making them as I usually do wouldn't be appropriate for minis that I was painting as gifts. C&C on the end results is welcome, though . The recipients both loved them, so feel free to be extra harsh to balance it out
Oh, and sorry for the reflective glare in most of the photos. I'm still trying to work out the picture set-up.
I recently got my ReaperCon goodies from my convention buddy. Since I caught a cold right before coming home from Kuwait, this mini felt especially relatable to me.
I looked over Buglips' and Guindyloo's versions of the mini, and they informed how I went a bit. Guindyloo's eye in particular was something I wanted to try replicating. I think I did an okay job. I should have picked a lighter color of blue, though. The pupil doesn't really stand out from the iris.
My tissue box's lines ended up not being quite as clean as I would've liked. I need to practice my freehand more.
