  1. Hey, it's really cool that you paint for Freebooter as well!! I haven't seen this miniature before, not even at the convention I was on yesterday (and Werner showed us quite a few new releases other than this one). I hope I can see it IRL in November when we go to Antwerp. By then I think I can show you the new release that I painted for Freebooter (I think it has to remain secret for now so I can't show it now And I like the dryad like this too, it's so tempting to paint her green. But you already did that

    So it has been a while since I've painted a Reaper model, but she is finished now! In all her greenness. I'm not quite sure if I'm completely happy with her, but I can't point out exactly what the problem is so everybody's welcome to nitpick Thanks! Link due to nudity

    Thanks again all, I;m gald you like her! Anne, you can send pictures to Jeremie, I haven't so far... About my face painting mojo, I'm glad I have it but after I've finished the face I often don't feel like painting the rest of the model anymore... the face is the best part IMO. Maybe we can exchange a bit of mojo?

    Sure, no problem! Base: VGC Earth + VMC Light Flesh Shades: VGC Charred Brown, Pegasus Burgund, VMC Deep Green, Pegasus Weinrot Highlights: GW Snakebite Leather + white I think the most important thing for this miniature was that I finally had enough patience to apply a lot of very thin glazes.That's how I achieved the depth of the skin (when I'm impatient I use too thick glazes which isn't very pretty...).

    No I don't think she's on Battlefield Berlin, but you can buy her directly from the Kraken store I think. I bought her on a convention last year. The tile work was indeed based on photos, but I combined a lot of them and changed some patterns to make it paintable on such a small scale. One of them was this one: Moroccan fountain

    Really is that resin? Very soft resin then. I'm not very experienced with resin, but all resin that I've seen was pretty hard... And Marikes version looks nice...

    It's from Kraken. Real plastic!!!
  8. So it was a while ago already that I posted the WIP from Rhymaïss. I have to admit I didn't paint a lot more on her, the base was enough work already Do you think there needs to be something extra on the base? Like a small pot or a tajine or something? Or is is busy enough already? Thanks! Brenda
  9. First a big thanks to everybody who took the time to nitpick I'm going to check everything you said on the real miniature, I suspect some tiny things might be caused by the photography, but there are certainly things that I agree on (the shading on the belt and the back side of the cloth for example). About that thingie next to her nose, I wasn't sure what it was (a flaw in the sculpt or not) so I decided is was a piercing. The exact location might be a bit odd, but I figured it might be just possible. I guess it needs more shading around it... I'm going to work on it! Thanks again!
  10. No don't feel awkward! It's those tiny things I want to hear! Thanks!
  11. So I don't often post WIPs. I actually don't know why... but this time I just want to paint this mini really good, I think she deserves it. I haven't painted such a nice mini in a long time (hooray for plastic it seems... ) So please comment every single thing you don't like and needs to be improved (hence the big pictures).
  12. @ dks: you exactly named the things I wish I had more time to work on... 1. the hair. It is too warm indeed. I was afraid it would end as one big grey mass, but this is not as I intended either. 2. the gloves. Because of the size of the right hand I decided to paint them as gloves. IRL the gloves are more different from the skintone, but I could have done better. 3. the flames. I was a bit confused I guess with the flames on a winter themed model... so that's what I painted last. I didn't mean to paint them as a light source (didn't have the time at all to paint OSL ). Then I made a huge mistake and painted them bright green (as in really bright bile green) which was horrible, so I covered it up with blue and felt she had to be finished. So all in all there are some things I quite like, but some areas could have had more attention. If only a day had 48 hours...
  13. Thanks for the kind words! The colors I used for the skin: VGC Steel Grey, VGC Electric Blue, VGC White and Burgundy from Pegasus Farben (a German brand). I mixed the first three to a pale grey shade, highlighted up to white and shaded with glazes of the steel grey and burgundy.
  14. Yes, a Fire Sorceress. In a winter contest. I can't help it, it was the only Reaper mini I still had... and as it was lying around way too long already I decided to paint it in a cold color scheme. I hope it's a bit credible, all comments are welcome!
  15. Here's my entry, it's Pharess the Fire Sorceress... I know it's a bit strange to enter a Fire Sorceress in a Winter Competition but it was the only Reaper mini I still had I hope I managed to hide the firey bits and create an icy feel. So I guess she's an Ice Sorceress now

    The base is the one that's included with the miniature. I have to admit that it was just a matter of priming white, use some different glazes. Some pinkish/brownish/greenish ones if I recall correctly. I tend to use colors that I already used for painting the miniature and mix them a bit. After glazing a little -forgive me- drybrushing. But this only works with a well sculpted base with a lot of detail on it, otherwise you don't create enough texture and depth with just glazing and fine drybrushing.
  17. Ah yes, I saw his hair was the same color as his arm and figured it had a purpose, but now it's all clear Maybe you could have given his skin a bark-like texture (in some areas). Although I'm not sure if it's possible to paint it like that without creating the idea that you just drybrushed it...
  18. This is (was) my entry for Wyrd's Rotten Harvest IV contest. It turned out to be Best of Show I have to say that was quite unexpected, mainly because I thought there were many other great entries that would get more votes than my little undead cutie. I hope you like her! CMON link
  19. Awesome. I especially like the metallics. It seems so easy to paint metallics, but I find it difficult to make it look realistic. There's only one thing I find a bit strange and that's the pinkish skintone. I don't know exactly what it is, but the color of the claw (or what it is that makes his left 'hand') looks so unnatural that the contrast with the pinkish fleshtone seems to be strange.
  20. Thanks all! I think it's funny to hear that most people like the skintones and freehands best... it clearly shows what I like the most about painting The time it takes me to paint one minis varies a bit. The demonette and Kujaku took a lot of time (as well as the Freebooter vignette but that's also a lot bigger), probably about 25-30h (painting only, the assembly of the demonette is a lot of work on itself due to all the separate parts). The other minis were a bit easier, but still took at least 15h. But I'm not really counting so it could easily be more
  21. So I was looking through my pictures yesterday and I found some old ones I never showed before. And a few new ones I entered in the competition on Crisis (Belgium). I hope it's not a problem that I post so many pictures, if so, I'll change it to links Confrontation Dream Warrior. Painted at least a year ago. I should have done more highlighting and shading on the skin I guess this one also counts as nudity warning, so link only! Dream Warrior Freebooter Demonette version #2 (link only, nudity warning!) Freebooter Demonette Anima Tactics Kujaku Hime. I truly enjoyed those freehands! Wargods Basti Priestess. Cats are cute. I guess I need a better photo editing programme (but that's on it's way!!) Freebooter 5th Anniversary Vignette. I never thought I'd finish it... Here's the pink fairy I entered a while ago in a contest on this forum. This is the original diorama before, well, I freaked out and ruined it Again link only! Frog and fairy diorama And the last one, a Freebooter special edition mini. Thank you all for your time!
  22. Wow, the colors on the cloak are awesome. I really need to try these myself soon. I can imagine it's fun to paint! And the hair makes it complete somehow, the highlights are very strong but nor overdone.
  23. Thanks all! The fairy is indeed a Freebooter mini, it's a quite recent one and I'm very proud to say I'm the first one who painted it
  24. Hey everybody, it has been a while since I posted anything here, but I have a few new minis to show you now. And indeed, two of them are male! It must have been a year ago or so since I last painted something non-female I hope you like them, all critics are welcome! Thanks!

    It took me a while to decide how to paint her... blue and green is so nice on this mini! But I really wanted something different, so here she is in goldfish-style. Including little Nemo ofcourse NUDITY WARNING! CMON link I hope you like her! Thanks!
