Wow! This model is in the same scale as Reaper minis?

 

Well, blow me down. That IS a reaper mini. Those eyes are incredible.

You should see what Derek did with the iconic Gunslinger mini, post-production. :blink:

That's a stunning job you achieved. Both the sculpt and paint job are very faithful to Johan Grenier's original illustration, really beautiful.

Thanks, everyone!

@Pingo: I like seeing the closeups of your figures' faces, too!

@Glitterwolf: This was the first time I had done a dark-sclera, light-iris eye to this level of detail.  It's an interesting detail of the character design.

@hotdogthebarbarian: Welllll, "same scale" but slightly exaggerated.  The character is supposed to be tall, so the figure would be 35mm (=7', if 30mm=6') if he were standing straight.

@haldir: Yeah, I rolled out a few spheres of putty for the globes of the bombs, then after they hardened I stuck them on and added the string and necks/corks, so the whole mass would be suitable for casting.  And thanks for remembering the gunslinger!  Her eyes still follow you everywhere ...

@Metalchaos: Now that you mentioned it, I looked up Johan's contact info at his website, so I just emailed him with a link to this forum thread and the photos.  Sometimes illustrators like seeing their work translated into 3D.  

@Darcstaar: Yes, I make most of my figures' noses and ears rosy, especially when an inhuman color like this needs to look a little warmer/"natural".  Many of my past figures seem to have colds or be drunk....

@Clearman: My size 0 Kolinsky sable brush by Escoda holds a very fine point.  I could probably touch up the sides of the lines to make them even thinner, but ... there are other projects on my desk awaiting paint!

Stunning work!  I love so many things, including the scabbard, the leather and the free hand throughout the mini make it look incredible

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      Here's another recent paint.
      It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not.
      This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head."
       
      I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white.
      So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows.
      I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush.
       
      I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White.

      Here's Kul-Inkit, a character from the fifth installment of the Pathfinder "Iron Gods" Adventure Path (#89: "Palace of Fallen Stars").
      I sculpted this figure in early 2017 and painted her last week (January 2018).
      She is a great warrior but unhappy in her role as consort to Kevoth-Kul, "the Black Sovereign", nominal ruler of Numeria.  (He is also Reaper figure #60189.)  Your characters might meet her in his palace.
      Numeria blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi.  A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there many years ago, and people have been plundering the wreckage.
      The overall color scheme is from the art in the book, but I posed her differently when I sculpted her, since the pose in the book wouldn't have worked as well for casting in miniature.
      The concept art reminded me of the model Linda Evangelista, who I think had this hairstyle at some point in her career.
      For the non-metallic metals (NMM) on the axe and shield and back-plate, I used several colors and scratchy strokes at various angles with very fine brushes.  Just trying something different.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      My current project. Pretty happy with how her skin came out.
