  1. Beautiful work. I agree about her nose. Perhaps the line between her nose and cheek is too stark?
  2. I just started using that app a few weeks ago. I didn't know you could use it to help do the actual color scheme picking. (just been using it for cataloging which paints I use on a figure)
  3. That pink-purple with the green is excellent!
  4. You are too kind. This is the first project where I feel like I've begun to grok using the airbrush for more than priming and basecoating.
  5. Got more work done on Harmony. Hair is mostly there, as is the edging on her wings. Did a purple wash on her body, but still need to pick out some details. Colors: Hair topmost highlight: 09276 Vampiric Highlight Wings edging/hands/ears: 09163-09165 Dark Elf Skin Triad + a small amount of 09021: Snow Shadow
  6. I forgot to ask in the post, but does anyone have recommendations for what to use to shade and highlight Redstone? I have the full triad, but I'd like to bump up the contrast a bit more.
  7. Some more airbrush work on Harmony's hair. Colors used (thanks PaintRack): Body: 09266: Violet Light 09267: Sunset Purple 09296: Malvernian Purple -9024: Amethyst Purple Hair: 09025: Burgundy Wine 09026: Violet Red 09027: Pale Violet Red I did a little bit of airbrush shading on Misery's tabbard. I then switched over to brushes for the green bits and some more shading. Colors used: Tabbard 09224: Redstone 09070: Mahogany Brown Green bits: 09082: Jungle Moss
  8. Did some more airbrush work on Harmony's body and based the "hair". Unfortunately, I forgot to get a good picture under my light. I did notice some overspray on the right top wing. I'll fix that up when I switch to brush work.
  9. Great job on your first minis - I love the wood grain on the orc's shield. You've also got nice clean lines already. If you are interested in a more worn look for your leather, check out some videos on stippling. Pretty easy technique that gives a really nice effect.
  10. For the devil girl, what about a dark green bustier painted with a leather-like texture? It would set off the tone of her skin. I like the Pale Khaki idea for the Ringmaster's pants. Rainbow lollipop on the clown would be really unsettling (i.e. good :D) Using Cheetara from Thudercats as a reference for your Lady Tiger could work.
  11. I haven't gotten it to the table for a play yet (just came in from Kickstarter). However, from the rules, it appears to be a really heavy crunchy area-control/card play strategy game - which is the kind of game I really like. Here's a link to the BGG entry for it: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/218479/cerebria-inside-world
  12. [Warning: lots of images incoming] Next up on my table are the miniatures from Cerebria: The Inside World, a boardgame from Mindclash Games in which the forces of Bliss and Gloom vie for control of an evolving personality. I'm going to try to do these two at a time (one from each team); the first two will be Harmony and Malice. Session 1 - prime + zenithal highlight Harmony Malice Session 2 Harmony With the airbrush, I did base+shading of the wings and base of the body. Colors used: - Twilight Blue - Snow Shadow - Surf Aqua - Violet Light - Sunset Purple - Maggot White Malice For malice, I'm starting with the NMM-bronze-ish body. I base coated with Khaki Shadow, then used Ghoul Skin and Moldy Skin for initial highlighting. Shadows are Woodstain Brown and NMM Gold Shadow (which I am not that fond of for Gold, but seems to work well here). Any other color recommendations? I finished up the session with basing the skirt in Redstone.
  13. Thank you. I most certainly will (as soon as she is based). Thanks! You are most welcome for the colors. I did forget to note that I used some 09018: Sky Blue in the highlight - I couldn't see too much of a tonal difference between Brilliant Blue and Cyan Blue.
  14. Annndd... She's done... I think... I'm still not sold on the glowing rune on the shield. However, I think she is ready for varnishing and basing.
  15. Tabard and skirt done. I tried out a little bit of damask effect on the hem of the skirt. I think I will try the effect on a full cape on an upcoming figure. I tried out some runic symbol freehand on the shield and completed most of the leather work. Final steps are some NMM that I missed, amber gem for the wolf eyes, shading on back of the shield, runic glow effect, and final leather cleanup.
  16. wonderful skin tones and general color scheme. Great work!
  17. Finished up the gold work. Now on to the skirt/loincloth/totally-not-sure-if-has-special-name part. This is my first time using the vivid blues triad (Ritterlich Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Cyan Blue). I am really digging them. Out of the bottle, they seem to be a little more translucent, making for some easy blending. I did end up adding in some sky blue and LED blue for the highlight (I think I put both on my palette and just sort of used a little of both. Shadows are currently a bit of Burgundy Wine mixed with Ritterlich and then I put down some Corporeal Shadow. Now sure which I will end up going with. Thoughts?
  18. More Gold work on the sword hilt and back. Until now, I had never used my Russet Brown, but I have been really impressed with it in my NMM Gold. I was using NMM Gold Shadow (09301), but I prefer the soft warmth of the Russet Brown. Still really dig the rest of the NMM Gold triad, though.
  19. Session 2 of Gold NMM work; got a good bit of the front almost there. I tried out Glitterwolf's suggestion for the wolf's nose and I think it works really well! Thank you for the suggestion.
  20. I really like how his skin is coming along.
  21. That seems like it would gel well with the amber gem eyes I'm planning on trying. Thanks for the suggestion. To mimic that, it seems like I would go with a slightly more orange palette than my other gold and then keep the highlight area really small compared to the rest to keep the dark effect.
