I haven't had the opportunity to do much painting.  Last night was my first real chance.  I spent the evening working on finishing her staff and starting work on her orb.

For the work I did, I feel the larger stones need more work, especially the one at the top of the staff.

 

I think I'm afraid of working on her face.  Since I have other skin touchups that need to be done, I should really just go ahead and do it.

 

Especially since I'm on a deadline now.  Three weeks and change to ReaperCon.

Well, I did some work on her face.  I think I now know what I need to do.

Her face is mostly Fair Highlight at this point, which just doesn't look right.  The picture on the left looks better because her left arm is blocking some of the light.

 

I need to bring most of her face back down to Fair Skin, or maybe 1:1 Fair Skin:Fair Highlight, so her face has actual contours.  (Or I suppose I could add lining around the edges of the highlight and pass it off as a mask...)  

 

Also, it looks like I should lighten her lower leg slightly.  There's a little too much contrast there.

 

I also realized why the stone in her staff doesn't look right.  The highlights are placed as if the stone is translucent but it's not.  It's supposed to be solid.  As a polished stone, it should have sharp highlights (although not as harsh as metal) and the highlight should be a flat horizontal line.

 

Two weeks to go.

I would also add a tint of other colors into your mix as well, what do they say forehead to eyebrows, yellow; eyebrows to tip of nose, red; lips to chin blue or gray (but mostly for males) and I would dot the tip of your nose with ivory.

I was thinking of using Linen White instead of ivory for her highest highlights but that's a later step.  First, I need to fix her face.

 

I haven't been able to paint since I took those pictures.  I'm hoping to paint some tonight.

I do really like where this is going it's looking very smooth.  Do you want to blush her cheeks, you can add a little rosy skin to your flesh tone and apply a thin coat then wash over with it your fair highlight to blend.

If I may the chin really seems to blend into to neck it may benefit from som shadow (darker skin tone around the neck below the jaw line to add a little distinction and frame the face more making it pop to the eye

Blushing her cheeks is also on my todo list.  I've gone over her cheeks with layers of Rosy Highlight and I think I can see a slight difference in hand.  Again, this is something I'll work on once I've fixed her face.

I spent my hobby time Monday night glazing Fair Shadow and Fair Skin on her face.  I think there's an improvement but there's still more work to do.

I worked more on her face last night and on the stone atop her staff and basing tonight.

Her bottom lip needs a little cleanup work.  Darkening the shadow under her lip should do it.  Otherwise, I'm willing to call her face done for now.

 

I think the stone on her staff looks good.  So, from here, the orb in her hand and then cleaning up her hands.

      So I was looking at my minis box yesterday and decide that it may be wise to get them done ! haha , like kid who want to cake and mother saying you will get another one when you finish the first one haha.
       
      Anyway I though I just do an ongoing wip, self motivation ( well actually I am quite motivate to get those in shape ).
       
      Primed couple minis so they are ready for paint ( minus the 2 Cmon one since I need to get some putty on those to cover the obvious seam du to the assembly ).
       
      And I am going to start with those bad girls...actually Raging Heroes box I ordered , finally get onto glue all those parts , they are really super small ! Kinda like Wizkids size if not worse lol , well for those at last.

       
      The darksword frogs are for a new scene / vignette but I will paint the figure first this time and worry about the vignette after :D..
       
      Have to think about my color scheme for those lust elves now , I and I think I will get onto dark purple / blue tone for clothings and more pale skin / wolf grey kind of mix maybe for the skin..
      This time since that's a set I will try to paint them in batch so I keep color somewhat homogeneous between them.
       
      Well I guess I have a paint schedule for couple week coming :D...

      Hi guys, so just because I love touching everything haha and to cut a bit form painting ( though almost finish with the reaper beast champion paint :)...)..I started to mess with clay stuff ..quite fun actually haha.
       
      I have no idea how this will end up anyway and that's ok for me to fail , that's just for practice and such and get a feel for it.
      I started trying to do some kind of carnivore plant things ( also looking at a thread here  for a step octopus like sculpt so just trying to avoid the "anatomy" things for now..)
       
      I may have some trouble with lower jaw..did nothing to support it but hmm will see xD..

      Hey so this is my first post, I’ve only been painting since Christmas and I don’t have many friends who do it. So this seems like the best place to get some advice. I’ve been working on this fire demon for a while now and I finally finished the main body, but just wanted some advice for the base and what I could go for. I had a lot of difficulty with the runes on the sword as I really don’t have the skill yet to do it. If you see anything else that’s rough with it let me know please :) the photos are just a few progress pictures. Thank you!

      Starting a new figure, from AoW this time.
      Currently worked on the skin parts...and I could not skip the eye on this one haha 

       
      Just for reference and info , I put the color used for this part ...( at least that will be a reminder for me what I used haha ).
       
      Skin : Mix of Vallejo model color olive green and lime green and Reaper Heather Blue.
      Nails and Teeth, Gum : Vallejo model color purple, Reaper Desert Sand and Bleached Linen
      Also a pass of Army Painter Dark Tone Wash to renforce a bit shadow.

      So I posted these sketches for new sculpt ideas to my social medias and got some good feedback. Everyone seemed to be a big fan of the Raccoon and since he was one of my favorites from the pack also, I decided to sculpt him!
      I didn't have my phone with me to get pics of the initial wire frame and GS layer but I went over that with some Fimo clay and baked an underlying structure now and I'll start layering my Primo on top of that.
