My Secret Sophie partner is moving, so I needed to get mine done and in the mail ASAP. After spending a decent amount of time on the skin, the rest of it got pushed through fairly quickly. Quickly enough I probably missed something, but that's for my partner to find. The photos of Ollamiel are mostly color accurate, though I don't recall the red cloth looking so vibrant in hand. Taking these pics made me realize I'd missed the bits in her hair. Her clothing was something of an experiment. They didn't quite work as expected, but tropical fish come in all sorts of colors and there wasn't really time to redo them anyway so... If you ever purchase her be aware she is one of those minis with an unfortunate mold line across her face. It cleaned up well enough that she is ok from either side, but when viewed directly you can see the symmetry is a bit off.
Am painting up Stieg Brinegrog as a crewman/bosun and Sushanthe as either a warden or a pearl diver. Was a bit annoyed with the stieg figure as smaller than I was expecting. Had a go at tattoos just using a 0.4 black drawing pen. Will glaze back over them. Am deliberately trying to have brighter colours for the sea elf so went for dark skin as a contrast and will highlight everything back up.
I finally, finally finished this mini after it sat on my Shelf of Shame staring reproachfully at me for ages. Total time, start to finish: 1 year 10 months. Eep. There is a WIP thread from roughly a year ago where I got her skin done, which was honestly the hardest part, so I don't know why it took me another year to drag myself into finishing her sharkskin-leather and turtle-shell armor. The knife is supposed to be obsidian, by the way -- it didn't come out terribly well in the photos, but I painted it black with a layer of Realistic Water after the sealant went on to make it shiny and reflective like volcanic glass ought to be. The base is just a bunch of small rocks and glue. Plus some dried moss. I am super worried about that moss -- it's so brittle! I am convinced it's just going to snap off the instant someone grabs the base without positioning their fingers carefully. Over all, I'm reasonably pleased with the outcome, if not with the timeline.
