Wow. Really good!

 

I am quite impressed!

 

I don't think it is a problem she is leaning. Makes her look dynamic.

Most Impressive. The OSL on her right hip is particularly good IMHO.

 

Thank you! That is one of my favorite parts as well! I think I got lucky. After shading and highlighting her skin, I decided to try glazing Reaper Clear Red over that part of her skin. (It is also what I used on her cheeks.) It worked great so I didn't mess with it anymore.

There is just a tiny little place to wedge her foot in the base. I couldn't see any other place for her foot to go. After the first glueing, I popped her off and took my hobby knife to the base to smooth it out thinking maybe there was something there. Glued her back in and nope, still leans to the right, grrr! It's not as noticeable in person but now it bothers me. Haha!

Thank you! This is the first time I have used a Reaper triad and I am very impressed. I am getting several of the other skin triads because the olive was so nice to work with.

Marvellous!

 

You leveled up on this one!

 

Great job!

 

Thank you! I am pretty proud of her!

Great work.  The skin triads are fantastic.  Olive is particularly great though.  I don't like the fair skin triad though - its *extremely* subtle. I usually use shadowed skin highlight as my fair skin shadow.

I love this!  Really beautiful!

 

I really like the OSL!  I like that it is subtle and doesn't dominate over the skin tones.

 

I really need to look into getting some of the skin triads!  They look really nice!

I am really impressed with the olive. I usually mix my own, which I have always liked, but I wanted to try the triads and the olive was the only one that I could find all 3 at Cancon.

 

My cart right now is full of flesh colors. It is so hard to tell by the swatches though, several of them in my cart look very similar. Thanks for the heads up on the Fair Skin. When you say too subtle, you mean the 3 are too similar to each other?

With the flame wrapping around her, it was hard to decide how much OSL to put on her. I actually printed a photo of her so I could look and see which part of the flame would be casting light since I painted her separate from the base.

 

I actually didn't know how much I would like the skin triads but I am now a fan! Can't wait to get some of the others, especially the dark skin and the dusky skin.

The mage is absolutely resplendent! Your precision is great, the color palette is outstandingly selected, and the OSL is well placed. 

For C&C, I think the fire itself needs work. There is so much amazing life in the mage that the fire seems almost static. Perhaps a bit more into the nooks and crannies on it would bring it up to match the mage. I really adore her!

What would you suggest for the fire? I did blending and drybrushing. The drybrushing could be the problem as I don't think I am very good at it. I had white showing through at the bottom but it looked a little weird so I used Clear Yellow to glaze over the white. This is also the first time I have ever done fire so it was a lot of experimentation! I'll take any tips to get better!

well since you asked... you painted the fire the right way, white brightest in center to yellow than red to finally black at the tips. The reason I think it looks "a little" and I do mean a little off is that you approached it as a "line" instead of a complete source. An example to what I'm trying to say is I should see some black tips in the center as well not just at the top of the figure. Fire spreads all directions, for a more three dimensional look. But still think it looks decadent!

      I was playing around with ways to build a translucent base for her when I thought, "hey, where would a Fire Mephit spend the Fourth of July?  Why, at the beach, of course!"
       
      (although not risqué, the model is partially nude, so there are only a few poses and viewing angles that I considered safe under the board's rules.  Other poses are visible at https://1drv.ms/f/s!AlVvpBv_HhuMzKVA9TEd-D0c1rTOSg)

      Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out.  This was a really difficult miniature to photograph.  The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base.  I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it.  I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange.  Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure.  In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure.

      03157: Garwin Greywand, Wizard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.  Continuing on with practicing OSL.  I started by undershading with dark brown and purple and highlighted up to linen white on his body and base.  I did the same thing but with black and greys on his staff.
       

       
      I then added the blue for his robe, using two sets of blues.  One set has no light effect colour added.  The other set has the yellow added.  I did the shading and highlighting on the dark side with the blues that didn't have the yellow added.  I used the set with the yellow added anywhere that I thought the light was going to hit, using the undershading as a guide as to where that would be.  The yellow I mixed with the blue is also used on the orb.
       

       
      Then I added the other colours (particularly the staff and the fleshtones) using the same approach of mixing up two sets of the colours to use side by side.
       

       

       

       
      Overall I'm pleased with the way it's turning out.  A few of the values seem out of balance though.  Particularly parts of the staff compared to the adjacent areas on his robe.  Some of the flesh tones that are further away from the orb need to be darker still.  The part of the staff directly below the orb seems too bright overall, especially right beneath the orb.  Still a work in progress.

      This is a teeny-tiny old Ral Partha dwarf. I don't know the SKU. Ratmaster2000 identified him as 01-070b, Dwarf Seer w/ Crystal Ball. I suspect he was sculpted by Tom Meier, given the delicacy and the anatomical accuracy.
       
      He is the first dwarf I have finished from the WIP thread Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs: 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess and a bunch of dwarfs as Exalted Jadeborn.
       
      As ever, comments and critiques are welcome.
