I once again am totally amazed by your skind painting. Great work so far. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks!

I still insist it's all down to the Flesh Wash, it's liquefied magic!

 

 

Finally managed a little painting today:-

Finished her skin with highlights of 1:1 and 1:2 Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh, I added a drop of Blood Red to the top highlight mix to paint her lips and managed some basic eyes (they're surprisingly small for such a large head).

Fought with her hair, it was based with Hexed Lichen, given a Black Wash, highlighted with Hexed Lichen, given spot highlights of 1:1 and 1:2 Hexed Lichen/Off-white, glazed with thinned Hexed Lichen, re-shaded with Black Wash and then I gave up.

 

Also painted her head thing (Lonestar Leather > Brown Wash > Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Ochre Yellow) and skulls in Bonewhite.

Decided Snows fur was fine (didn't want to risk using my unreliable drybrushing skills), painted her harness and things (Lonestar Leather > Brown Wash > Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Ochre Yellow), there was also Bronze moon charms, a Bonewhite skull and a Brassy Brass guild symbol.

 

The posing rock is a base of 1:1 Cold Grey/Olive Green so far.

Thanks guys!

 

 

More progress:-

Tried tackling her hair again, this time I went in a different order and applied more general highlights (1:2 Pure Black/Hexed Lichen > Hexed Lichen > 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Off-white > Off-white with a brushtipful of the previous layer > Black Wash > Violet Ink glaze). It's still not how I envisioned it, but I'm happier with it.

 

Also made a start on her cape. The yellow part is a base of Ochre Yellow with a Brown Wash and then drybrushes of Ochre Yellow and 1:1 Ochre Yellow/Iraqi Sand, while the red is just a base of Scarlett Red so far, plus some Dark Prussian Blue feathers.

Snow is all based up.

I'll do better pictures later when I make a show-off thread.

Been forgetting to take pictures again:-

This was done over lots of little painting sessions, so I can't remember what colours I used ::(:

Today's session was basecoating her shorts in Olive Green plus a Brown Wash.

I love her eyes. She really has a mean gaze.

Thanks! I always seem to have better luck with painting eyes if I paint them looking to one side.

 

Progress:-

Her tatty leg-warmers are done.

The cloth parts are Lonestar Leather and the fur parts are Cold Grey > Brown Wash > Wolf Grey.

 

Base time!

That is one of my secrets to how I paint eyes as well.

Started Ulfr:-

 

8cXaSS7.jpg

 

He's surprisingly weighty and a real wrist killer, so I didn't get too far.

 

7A1zhf2.jpg

 

Based his skin with Dwarf Flesh and gave it a coat of Flesh Wash.

 

If my wrist recovers I'll try and finish the skin tomorrow.

You know ... I just noticed ... he looks a bit like Captain Qwark.

I have this set, and haven't gotten around to them yet. So, this is not only glorious to watch, it's educational as well! *makes a note to retrieve larger or different bases for the worst culprits.. and be prepared to tweak some arms*

 

And, really nice job with the first two; love what you did with Skatha's hair. And woof! Awesome woof. ^^;

 

(I don't play Guildball. But I can, will and /do/ grab miniatures for their, 'ooh! That looks useful!' factors. And I appear to be collecting wolves, so this set is just full of awesome).

      Presenting Veteran Gutter from the game Guild Ball, a damaged young woman who used her trauma to transform into a rage-fuelled murder machine. Originally part of the Union team (haven't painted this version yet), this veteran version marks her move to the Butchers Guild team.
       
      As I said in her WIP thread, this mini had rather sever moldline and excess flash issues (she's a one piece mini and the areas between her arms, sides and chain were pretty much filled in) which has left the details in a few areas in a bit of a mess, despite that I think she turned out okay.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Veteran Decimate, a minor noblewoman turned sword for hire, who was originally a member of Guild Balls mercenary Union team (I haven't painted this version yet), however plot related shenanigans caused her to move to the Brewers Guild team resulting in this new 'Veteran' version.
       
      Really happy with this one, there's a few things I could do better (her bracers, straps and glove blend together too much), but I think overall it turned out pretty good.

      Yep, more Guild Ball stuff and a whole set this time.
       
      See, normally I choose which Guild Ball mini to paint by pulling a random character card out of the box I keep them in (I wish more companies still did character cards, makes it so much easier to add randomisation into the mini choosing process), but these girls didn't come with any, so rather than pack them away and potentially forget they exist, I thought I'd get them done now.
       
      Plus these are the Veteran versions of the characters, so it'll help having all the colour choices in one place for when it comes to painting their standard versions.
       
      Presenting the Exiles:-
       

       
      These are all characters who originally played for different Guild Ball teams (mostly the mercenary Union team) but for fluff reasons have moved on.
       
      We've got:-
       

       
      Hemlocke (ditzy hedge witch now learning the art of Spiritmancy) and Harriet the Hat (down on her luck engineering student possessed by a magic, and possibly evil, hat).
       

       
      Decimate (minor league noblewoman turned formidable sword for hire) and Minx (completely feral forest person).
       

       
      Gutter (formally a Stockholm Syndrome suffering princess turned rage-fuelled murder machine) and Honour (badly injured Masons team captain, now Farmers team coach and occasional goalkeeper, with assistance dog).
       
       
      Made a small start to Decimate today:-
       

       
      Couldn't figure out if she had a shirt on under her vest, decided she looked better without one, just a base of 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin and a Flesh Wash so far.

      Presenting Iron, a hard-hitting member of the Blacksmiths Guild Ball team.
       
      Managed to get stuck in a bit of a 'Paintings too hard, why bother' funk, so I needed an easy mini to get my groove back.
      I also painted up another bit of Guild Ball terrain, I think this one is a goal post.

      Presenting Angel, the newest member of the Fishermen Guilds Guildball team.
       
      Was pretty terrified of painting her fishnet leggings, but I think they turned out okay.
