The 'Mere is a Cruel Mistress

Recommended Posts

I do love that cape. And the eyes on both minis. You definitely pimped the pewter. ::D:

 

I always worry about offering criticism, but as you welcomed it, I'll offer my thoughts? I think your colors look good overall. I can only comment on two things:

  • The angle of the arm holding the flowers looks unnatural. I skimmed through your WIP post, I think it said that you bent the arm into position? Cutting it off and reattaching might give a more natural feel to it.
  • I'm having difficulty seeing highlights and shadows on the crown/tiara/whatever. It might just be the photos or lighting though.

I very much like it.

Thanks so much! 

I wondered if the arm would still look unnatural. I think the problem is at the shoulder, and not the elbow, so I'm not sure how I would reattach it? Totally open to suggestions on that. 

And you are 100% correct, I haven't finished her tiara! I got caught up in the 'done'. Lol. I will have to fine-toothed comb it once I can see it with new eyes. 

Thanks again! I really do welcome all comments, be they complementary or critical!

Oh wow, I'm so glad you showed us this, it looks great ::D: Love the cape and the way the tail looks through the resin.

I think it's a wonderful piece!

Great idea.

 

About that arm, it depends, to me it looks like he's offering the flowers and then when she gets closer he pulls away a bit, maybe he's trying to lure her closer?

This came out great; I completely understand the apprehension you had before the pour and I'm glad to see that it all worked out. 

 

As to the outstretched arm with the flowers I think it works if one thing is added. If a sheathed dagger were attached to his waist with the hilt pointed toward his left hand it would give credence to the idea that he is trying to lure her closer. Of course that would also greatly change the theme of the piece but might be worth thinking about.

 

As is I think it looks great and it was fun watching your progress with this project. You certainly gave me quite a few new ideas and things to try on my next project.

It is a LOVELY & IMAGINATIVE narrative creation. I doubt I would have the courage to pour resin over a piece I had labored on as long as you did your BEAUTIFUL mermaid. VERY WELL DONE!

      We just launched our campaign for awesome gargantuan dragons, they are 20 cm high, they will look huge compared to 32mm miniatures, the design of every dragon is also unique and different.

      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.

      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).









      You can also pick up the other Corvus Corax minis from previous projects as add ons


      I've backed the previous projects and been very happy with the results

      This is Scale 75's Ares Operator 03. It's a 40mm resin future soldier and apparently part of a gaming system. The package had some cards in it, but since I don't play the game, they're a bit lost on me... Anyhoo...
       
      The figure is four parts - head, upper torso/arms, lower torso/legs, and the rifle with molded on hands. Cleanup was taking care of the usual casting seams and the removal of bits and pieces of mold trash. I used the gray Stynelrez primer (brushed on out of the bottle) and Reaper MSP paints. I used a Dremel tool and ball/dovetail cutters to mark up/damage the armor and went with a splotchy green camo. While they have their place, I tend not to use bright colors on military figures because all they say to me is 'Here I am! Shoot me!'.
       
      The figure is mounted on a sanded/stained wood craft block with Aves Apoxie Sculpt groundwork, kitty litter rocks and somebody's weeds. I added a dripping rusty pipe coming out of the ground and a large putty teddy bear. 
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.

      Now that I have your attention...
       
      This is Percival, a one inch(ish) tall resin penguin from Scale 75. The piece is part a larger model in S75's SmogRiders line. It's not normally available separately, but I was able to score one when it fell off a truck. The piece originally had a WW I style Prussian spiked helmet. I removed the helmet and added a WW II British helmet from my spares box. The groundwork is Aves putty stippled with a stiff oil painting brush to give it a sandy texture. The sandbags are also putty formed with my fingers. I left my fingerprints on them to give the impression of coarsely woven canvas. The sign is sheet plastic and strip. Reaper MSP paints. Eventually, it'll have a name plate 'Why Am I Here?'
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.
