Thanks guys!

 

Got a little bit more done:-

Found a little bit more torso so this got painted up the same as his skin.

Then it was tentacle time (1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green/Bonewhite).

 

Starting to realize this one doesn't work on his fancy resin base as well as the others do, he really needs to be slightly buried in the dirt.

 I ended up sculpting a bunch more tentacles around him. A combination of that, plus some water/slime effect could help him look less like he's hovering over the fancy resin.

That's a really neat idea, thanks!

 

My greenstuffing skills are very basic, but I should be able to plug the gaps with a few tentacles.

I'll try and get the skullz painted today, get everything varnished and give it a go.

Had fun playing with my Greenstuff and he looks better connected to his base.

 

Letting it dry overnight now.

Made a little progress:-

Painted his new tentacles to match his old tentacles.

Painted his book.

The cover is Scarlett Red with Bronze detailing, the pages are Iraqi Sand shaded with a touch a Brown Wash, a Magic Blue bookmark and squiggles!

Thanks guys!

I know they're the most basic of mods, but I'm rather proud of the job I did making him extra tentaclely.

 

 

Little bit more progress:-

Started on his staff.

The staff itself is 1:1 Leather Brown/Cold Grey with a Brown Wash, and I've started on the fleshy worm part (It's Dwarf Flesh with Flesh Wash so far), but I don't get what the balls on the spines are supposed to be.

I'll have to give it some thought.

Progress:-

Finished off the fleshy tentacle with a highlight of Dwarf Flesh, the spines and teeth are Iraqi Sand with a Brown Wash and the mouth and orbs are 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Dwarf Flesh.

The final orb I did as an eyeball, I don't think that's how eyeballs work but I think it looks kinda neat.

 

Just gotta do the base, although I have made that a much harder job for myself.

As suspected I did have to repaint several tentacles that got in the way of base painting, but he's done:-

 

Just the cute, little necromancer left.

Then I going to have to buy some more Dreadmere minis.

      Here are the pictures of the Grudge all finished. While there were times that I hated how things looked, in the end I am extremely happy with how he turned out.

      Never did get round to finishing his base.  Was needed for a campaign.

      Hey there!
       
      This is my first post-ReaperCon mini, and I'm using her to practice the various techniques that I learned in various classes. I'll be posting stages along the way, and feedback is very much appreciated!
       
      For starters, I've gotten most of the base coats down, and the first thing I practiced was two brush blending on her orange cloak.
       
      My plan is to do a bit of freehand along the trim in the light orange of the front skirt, and then use the same trim along the skirt in the dark orange of the cloak. It makes sense in my head, anyway!
       
      The chest armor is done with the new Dungeon Dwellers color "Kobold Scale", and I love it. It's got a deep maroon/brown thing going on.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Since the piece does contain some nudity, I'm only showing back/side views here to respect the forum rules. More angles are available at my website, https://www.lightminiatures.com/come-back-to-me-my-love/.
       
      I also have a bit of a backstory and a LOT of work-in-progress photos of both the painting and some of the sculpting work I did for the resurrection effect and other parts of the diorama. It's definitely worth checking out. :) For anyone who was at ReaperCon and didn't get a chance to check out the booklet (I know how cons can be), the blog post is basically the same thing.
       
      The main figure is 03784: D’Vandra Lukesia by Bobby Jackson. The resurrection effect is constructed using 03639: Bella, Succubus by Patrick Keith, and Secret Weapon’s skeleton kit. Everything else is scratchbuilt out of putty, plastic card, parchment paper, cork tile, and wire, apart from two resin vases I got from somewhere I can't remember.
       
      If you have any comments, questions, or constructive criticism, that is always welcome!
