This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest.
The Angel of Shadow. She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)!
For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that.
Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying.
Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome. My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A cross-looking weapon from the BONES 3 Weapon Sprue), and sculpted my take on Acid Arrow, painting it green as the only color on the model, like those stunning black and white photos with colored flowers, etc. I would say I'm a much better painter than sculptor
Her paints used
As time wore down, I had to abandon thoughts of OSL, so I made it seem like her lantern had died out and the spell didn't cast much light.
Here are some other photos against an out-of-focus rug to show some tighter details.
I tried to put some texture into the fabric of her dress, which was another first.
Have painted up some half orcs. They are from Mark Copplestone, who made them for Grenadier Games many years ago. They are still in print from 2 or 3 different small sellers.
I used Vallejo leather brown Air primer (with a brush though) and Army Painter Strong tone. This covered the whole mini and made the process of highlighting and building up the base coats much quicker.
