Okay, I promise I'll finish one of these threads one day. But in the meantime I've started painting the Bones Sphinx. I've already painted up the wings, I've just got a few little things to do. I do want to thank @Pochi for the inspiration for the wings.

Did a wash on the wings to bring out the feathers a little more, need to work on the details on the "eyes" on the inside of the wings simce the was brought them down a lot more than I'd have liked it to.

Working on the highlights and shadows still but going to go ahead and do the eyes because I really don't want to mess up the face.

Elfed up the right eye trying to fix the face. Time for a break.

Slept on it and I think that the face is salvageable. But if I do too much more I will have to strip it and start over.

I think the eyes look great! They really look like the ones from hieroglyphics :)

Thanks! I accidentally painted over half of her left eye in trying to fix the rest of the face. So, I need to try to fix that before I go further.

I /think/ I've got them as even as I can. Also, now with eyebrows! Need to figure out how to smooth things out a bit so I really don't have to strip it.

I like it...but maybe make the eyeshadow either paler or brighter.  It seems to stark right now (unless you were going with a blue-back hair).

I put some eye shadow on and a little lip color. Not sure how I feel about it. Thoughts?

 

 

It's nice, although I think she might look nicer with darker lips. Like a dark reddish brown. It's subtle, but can accentuate the cat element on this specific figure. I googled for some images to kinda show what I mean. Although, if you are looking to give her a more glamorous look I think you did a nice job.

      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??"...
