The Pirate Life suits the Girl; she will never have to worry about drowning. She certainly is a BEAUTIFULLY painted creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks for the kind comment Jasonator.

To be clear it is ONE bust, I left the hat and bustier off for the first set of pics, the bustier is not glued on the final version either.

I loved the options and didn't want to choose..

 

I still need to improve on things, but I'm happy with her as is.

Thanks Al!

 

She was a lot of fun to paint although I had to skip my first idead for painting the bustier sheer.

I need more practice to pull that off.

The bandana was freehand which I think worked.

The rust effect on the plinth is from the Vallejo Special Effects Set.

She's just stunning! I've been following the WIP so I know how much work you put into her and it was well worth it!

 

 

Thank you!

I learn a little bit more every time I paint a larger mini or bust.

I love painting busts, I've already got the next one lined up!

Especially impressed with the Macaw, headscarf and rusty base.

 

Thanks!

The macaw is copied from a picture, I already painted a smaller version for my 54mm Maria Roseblade.

Headscarf was freehand and the rust is Vallejo Rust, Dried Rust and P3 Pig Iron.

Captain Scarlet came out great. Wonderful work on her.

 

I have got one remark though: One of her eyes looks out of place.

 

But maybe that is absolutely understandable. Of course she is suffering from paranoia. A long life as a pirate lets you have your eyes just everywhere. Enemies, bouys, shallow waters ... always have an eye checking your port side and one on the starboard side.

      Converted Gregor the Wizard, who is a druid type character, well wrapped up with a bird as a familiar. I thought the model would look good as a female character and the way the coat bunches up means that a conversion looks OK, in my view. I just cut off the head with a razor saw and swapped it with a reaper bones head for Drys the Dryad. I just stuck it straight onto a blob of green stuff. I didn't need to do much texturing because the beard on the original male model just looks like a scarf following the sawing.
       
      The mittened hand holding the bird just got accidentally bent back while I was sawing the head off (is this forum externally monitored?). It wasn't an intentional part of converting. 
       
      Then a pretty simple paint job, have done the washes in these pics and need to do some basic highlighting and a winter effect on the base.

      I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking. 
      I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking. 
       
      So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind. 
      I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome. 
       
      BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla

      Okay, so I may never go back to painting 30 mm...! JK, but I did seriously enjoy painting this bust. It's my first, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
       
      It's Joaquin Palacios' "Drogor" and it was also my first attempt at using the airbrush. I used it to do a shaded basecoat, and then brushed the rest using a combination of Vallejo, Master Series, and Golden acrylic paints. I wanted a strong directional light source, and I think I achieved it fairly well (comments and tips are much appreciated.) Given my 2D painting background, I use glazes pretty heavily, as you can probably tell.
       
      Anyone know of a domestic source for nice wood bases? I've ordered a few from Sockelmacher, but they will take sooo looong to get here. This is just a chunk of balsa I used to paint on and he needs something nicer. 
       
      Happy painting!

      Quick paint job on this one so I could use it in our current rpg as a time and dimension travelling psionic character.  It is by DGS Games, from their Eclipse Sisterhood KS.  It's technically a fantasy mini, but could be used in any genre that you'd find swords. Might even be able to paint it as some kind of energy blade. 
       

       
      Sorry for the fuzzy image. Think I may have dropped my camera one too many times. :(
