Sparrow paints Isabeau Laroche as Captain Marvel

Recommended Posts

Husband has asked me to paint up Isabeau Laroche as Captain Marvel. He saw some pictures of it done on Tumblr a while ago and thought it was the neatest thing. So I am going to attempt to recreate it. When I was initially asked I didn't think I was nearly good enough to pull it off but I think where I am now I can do it. I'll be using this photo as reference:

The emblem on her chest will go onto Isabeau's shield as seen in original mini photos.

Currently working on shaving the decorative bits off of the shield which accidentally broke off at the arm joint when I pulled at it a bit to hard to inspect her torso.

  I'm not the least bit sure why, but I've always had the urge to paint her up in Joker colors... :wacko:

After much difficulty I got the decorative bits off. Didn't mangle the shield too badly. Got a rough sketch of the emblem on the shield. Not sure if I'm going to redo it or not yet, this was my...4th? attempt.

Had top stop drawing on the shield. I was getting small cuts into it. I think I feel comfortable painting it on now though. I sketched it out on paper. So maybe after a few more attempts at this I'll be totally ready to get in with it.

 

I anticipate that the shield will be the most time consuming. So I'm tackling that first. Still trying to decide on a good skin color and highlight and shadow colors for it once I decide.

      Howdy,
       
       Inspiration came from the Reaper Quarterly Contest...

      Can't seem to find these guys.  It says they're from Bones 3.

      Last up in my recently finished miniatures are a set of Animal-Folk from Reaper, all part of Bones 3.  I believe some are Lyncanthropes and some from the Savage Avatars sets.

      The pack:



      The Gorilla King, with hat:



      And without:



      The Were-Gorilla:



      Werebear don't care:




      A rather standard Werewolf:




      Wereboar gotta go fast:



      And a Water-Buffalo-Man.  I realized I painted him after a Yak, then remembered that's not the animal he was meant to be.

      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.
       
      C&C Welcome!

      So I'm going to be making a diorama for a friend soon. I have a pretty solid idea of what I want to do but no idea how to go about it. I've never worked with cork before and am going to be using quite a bit of it. I want to pour water effects(?) into it but don't want the cork to soak it up. My questions are (photos to be added below for reference):
       
      How do I seal the cork so it won't absorb the resin water effects? Do I need to seal the wood I am basing it on as well? If so what is the best way to do that? What is the best glue to put the cork on the wood, sealed or not?  
      ETA: 
      How do I fix the small hairline cracks in the cork (not sure if they're visible in the picture)? Kind of related but what is the best glue for plastic to wood (I'm going to be putting the wood on top of a painted Tropicana lid)?
