    Very nice. Especially nice result on some seriously TINY eyes!

    Very smooth! I like her little pops of color.

    Great work. They look like you spent a great deal of time on them.

    Despite Inarah’s success with Sepia Liner, many on these forums have had poor results with Sepia Liner for Bonesium first coat primer. If you don’t mind starting with a darker canvas to paint from, it might be safer to go with Brown. You can also mix Liners with a little White Brush on Primer. I have done that when I want a little lighter background than Brown, and have not had a problem with adherence. It did end up as a sort of pinkish color, though.

    It came out great. The wings are fabulous, and the eyes are super-menacing.

    Darcstaar vs. Bones 1 ep. 3 Oxidation Beast

    Haven’t had much Painting time. Here is some progress. I feared it would be hard to get to the medial surfaces of the antennae once glued on, so I painted that surface prior to assembly. I also painted the eyes prior to assembly: Green Liner, Peacock Green, Grass Green, 1:1 Grass Green:Alien Goo, Pure Alien Goo, then a dot of Pure White. Post assembly. Ugh, the lower surfaces of the antennae are really close. Painting these will be tough.

    Great work. Excellent use of paint to add elements beyond the sculpt/cast.

    Great job. I like the little red reflection on the blade. It’s a great bit of realism.

    Thanks! Black and red are always good together.

    Added Solid Black stippling. I used my “liner” mix which is water, retarder, and flow improver to thin the paint, and use a good 0 size brush with a sharp point. I’m quite pleased with the look: I was worried it would be a little strawberry or ladybug-ish, but it came out pleasantly surprising. And that’s it for today.
