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.

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.

      Hi all, I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, but does anyone know if Reaper has ever discussed/considered making the Bones ground sculpts that support the miniature the perfect circumference to be flush for 1" or 2" or 3" for RPG bases? Even for just the smaller miniatures that would fit 1" or 2" bases and not the large-sized ones?
       
      It seems like there would be a big portion of the market that would love a miniature you don't have to do special basing for besides supergluing it to a base considering how great some of the sculpted ground looks already. Basing miniatures by removing the nice ground sculpts from Reaper or trying to figure out how to obscure/blend in the sculpted ground is one of my biggest pet peeves about this hobby and I feel like there must be others who feel the same.

      I picked this up to paint for my girlfriend as Lon reminds me of her dog Erebus. He was fun to paint, although looking at the photo I can see a lot of flash I missed. As Erebus is female I probably should have done Lon's trousers in pink or the same teal shade as Erebus's collar and leash.

      Went a bit crazy and felt the call of the mini. Painted this in a single afternoon. Starting to get a hang on wet blending.

      My girlfriend's been fascinated by Antarctic exploration for a few months so when I saw that Reaper make an Antarctic Explorer figure, I had to get it and paint it for her. Here he is photographed in front of a porcelain iceberg she picked up at an art exhibit. She was really happy that I'd painted it for her but it took her about 30 seconds to say, "Isn't that the main guy from that Thing movie??"...
