Thank you! So funny you both comment on the base. I hate basing! It is a piece of bark glued to a round base. I painted it brown and then dry brushed with browns and greys then sloshed with a wash. The rest is tufts and vines glued on with some real leaves that I used a leaf punch on (dried and coated in matte sealer). So thank you for thinking the base looks nice too!

It looks awesome!

Maybe you hate doing basing and did a quick job on it..but it works.

The items are placed in a convincing manner and it really enhances the mini!

Awesome!  I am always amazed at how small you can paint!

 

Like others have said the base is super cool!

Wow. Great work.

 

Ahh - it somehow makes me want to watch or play Silence again.

 

The basing, the figure - everything works perfectly together.

 

Thank you for sharing it with us!

You know honestly, the more I've started going down this hobby rabbit hole, the more I like basing in large part because of what you said right there. It doesn't often take much to really make the mini standout. I might spend a few weeks (mainly because I don't paint every day) working on a mini and it looks decent (for me) but then can whip out a base in less than an evening (once its been primed) and suddenly it looks loads better. One of my goals for this year is to start expanding my basing options more just to provide more flavor to my minis.

Funny thing is that when I looked at the unpainted miniature holding what looked to be a hockey stick, I figured it was a Little Boy. Be that as it may she is a WONDERFULLY painted AND based (bases are my thing) creation.

Your eye for colors & flowers are FANTASTICVERY WELL DONE!

That is one of my hobby resolutions for this year as well. I want to figure out how to make nice bases. I have to force myself to base things otherwise I would just have a ton of painted minis stuck to corks and Tropicana lids! Haha!

I think I originally thought it was a little boy (and it could be used for one) until I read her background story for Pathfinder.

It is a combination of good brushes and holding my breath! Haha! On paint day, my friend teases me by yelling at me to breathe and asking if I have passed out yet. He also brings me cups of coffee and says it is to help steady my hands. Funny guy!

 

I was cleaning out my laundry room the other day (which is where my shelving unit is that I store my hobby stuff) and my husband picked up my little container of bark and was going to throw it away. I practically tackled him!

Very nice.

 

I know she's cute and all, but I can't help feeling like I'm being lured into a trap...

 

She may make an appearance in the game I run. I haven't decided yet who I want her to be or how I want to use her. She does have that look of, "Oh, thank goodness I found someone. Can you help me? It's just right over this way....."

      Also to go along with our Reign of Winter campaign.
      This is the BONES Winter Wolf.
      I had the most fun with the eyes.
      Some of the pics came out a little dark, despite 3 lights.
      It must be a camera thing...
       
      C&C Welcome.

      I haven't posted much lately.
      Work and life have been busy.
       
      We have been playing Reign of Winter.
      The GM told me there would be some Snow Goblins.
      I thought these Bones Gremlins look a lot like Pathfinder Goblins, so I gave them a wintry paint scheme and some snowy bases.

      Kevoth-Kul the Black Sovereign. Am I the only person to have painted this? I usually like to take a look at other painted interpretations of minis that I'm considering to paint. I can't find a single one of this guy anywhere. I can't be the only one who likes it.

      I painted this Karzoug, Runelord of Greed for a friend of mine to use as his climactic encounter in his campaign (yes that one). Tried to make him awesome, eventually chose to leave some of the freehand edges out, cause damnnn... Still I am quite pleased with him.

      I'm playing in a World of Darkness campaign and we need a bunch of vampires.
       
      I'm adapting Patrick Keith's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain to be a vampire, because not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress.
       
      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.
       
      She's such a pretty and elegant figure! I left off her short sword and staff and filled in the slight dimples where they were meant to go with a little Golden Molding Paste applied with the point of a bamboo skewer. The stuff shrinks when drying, so I heaped it up a little.
       
      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, eh, 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. Maybe I should paint them violet or something ...
       
      Anyhow, 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 something 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, neck, bust, and hands.

       

       
      Then (close ups for a while now) I laid in the first pale shadows. All greys are mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black.
       
       
      Darker shadows and some lights.
         
       
      She's rather a mess now, but you can see how the skin shading is beginning to go.
