Fishing.... watercolors... 

 

You catch a fish and use its tail as a paintbrush? ::D:

 

Their tails are so cool! And their scales! My father-in-law always laughs at me when I'm cleaning the fish because I get distracted. :lol:

I fully expect fishscales to be worked into the base of one of your models now. A small fish would have scales from a BIG MONSTER for a mini!

Omg like your peacock feathers??? I would lose my mind! :lol:

 

One of my sculpt ideas last year was a mermaid with a fish backbone whip - I'm sure her tail would have been plenty of work! I'd still like to make her one day, but I'll need better armature skills first. I'll have to dig around and see if I can find the photo.

 

A fishscale shield would be really cool though....

 

Edit: OH I thought you meant individually mini painted ones.

Ahhh. I'm on mobile, not signed into fb (I went off social media for a few weeks), and I'm not sure it's linking correctly, so here's a screenshot. And it was 2016, 2 years ago! O: where did the time go?!

 

Possible mobile link?

Well kinda, but like the literal peacock feathers - I used feathers as grass on the base! Use some fish scales for something cool, like pieces of a vanquished monster or shiny pebbles. Probably all sorts of fun stuff ::D:

Packing and life is so much work! I've left her out with my paints "just in case I had time." It's been a month, there's been no time....

I made time tonight so I didn't have to sit and think about how we're just in the waiting period before moving on Tuesday! Ahh! I also decided that I wasn't going to go too crazy on the painting. I'd rather have her done than never finished because I never got around to painting a specific technique on her.

I'll take an actual, properly lit photo of her one day. This phone camera is yikes.

 

I also made her in Guild Wars 2. First she was the relative of a D&D character to add backstory, then created in Sea of Thieves, and now GW2. It probably sounds silly to y'all, but I messed with the face until I could push the nose into having a bump in it. I hated my bumpy nose when I was growing up and I was excited to make a character that had it. She's cute, dang it! ^_^ I might need to make her head a little bigger though. I can't tell.

I have so, so, so many characters....

 

Honestly, it's the biggest reason I want to learn how to sculpt (and the feeling of amazement when something gets formed from a ball of putty)! Maybe if I can sculpt them all, I can make some space in my brain. ^_^

      I finished my Damaris Walmund, Duskwarden, yesterday. I painted her to look Elf-like, since she will be joining my Ghost Archipelago all-Elf crew in the role of a Hunter. I'm really pleased with this one; it's about as good as I can manage.
         The jacket is Folk Art Color Shift paint, which turned out pretty neat as a pearly metallic, but I don't see much color shifting in it.    I tried for a strawberry blond on the hair, but it ended up going more pinkish; not that that's a bad thing. 
         Her face was a challenge, particularly the way the vest collar partially obscures part of the mouth and the hair partially overhangs the eyes.  For some reason painting parts of things is harder than painting the whole...   And I noticed in the photos that here's a little bleb of dark paint over her left eye.  Oh, well, consider it a birthmark, as I am not going back in and repairing it at this point and risk messing up the whole thing! 
       
      On the base, I attempted to blend her integral cobbled base into a grassy surrounding by adding some loose cobbles around it, cut from a bit of Bones sprue, as if it was part of some ruined floor for path and slowly breaking apart.

      Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up. I plan on posting daily here - I might as well continue my daily art streak!
       
      Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot."
      Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)!
       
      Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!

      Damaris Walmund, Duskwarden.  Another project brought back from my shelf of shame.  I originally started painting her as a 'genasi' for the Princes of the Apocalypse campaign for D&D, but after I got done the blue skin I couldn't figure out what colours to paint the rest of her.  I think that is one of the main reasons I end up not finishing miniatures -- I can't picture what they are going to look like finished so I'm can't figure out what step to take next.  However, I just got the violet red triad in the mail, so I had to give the paint a try on something.  Here she is, ready to take on her enemies (aka the PC's in my D&D game).  Comments and criticism are welcome as always.

      Presenting Jakob Knochengard - Zombie Slayer, the first finished mini from my Dreadmere Begins WIP thread.
       
      I've been really taken with the minis Reaper have been producing for their Dreadmere setting, hopefully a few more of the ones they're doing for Bones 4 get released in metal.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hello art family! Y'all might remember my 2016 thread, where I focused on making a habit of drawing every day. 2017 was wild and I decided against a thread here, but I have continued that art streak through this year with a slight change - painting and sculpting was allowed to sustain that miniatures habit.  
       
      I'm getting a bit of a headstart with my 2018 thread! I'd love to learn some fancy traditional art school basics, and I think a lot of these things transfer over to most any type of art, like mini painting and sculpting.
      I see lots of friends here talking about color, lighting, and MORE CONTRAST, and I think we should check those cool things out!
       
      When I start a new subject, I will list (but not link) books, websites, or other references so you can follow along if you'd like.
