Metal Townsfolk Courtesan
Iridil posted a topic in Show Off: Painting
For a while I've been meaning to do a couple of character minis up, but I've been avoiding it since people are hard. Also, I don't have that many character minis, honestly - I turned most of them into melt last Reapercon to get more monsters! But I do need to fill out more general character minis, both to give me more options for one-shots, and to lend to my players. First off, I decided to do a fire sorceress, since that's a common enough thing to come up. Convinently, I have a faction of Phoenix-worshipers in my campaign world, so there's not a bad chance she'll see use as an NPC at some point, too... I used Bobby Jackson's great Courtesan mini, a nice simple figure with lots of great lines! I'm really pleased with how she turned out, especially her face! I'm trying a new technique for eyes, and while it needs a little fine-tuning, I think it came out really good. They look wonkier in the pictures than IRL, and I got them both looking in the right direction, which I'm very pleased with. I tried to use the same effects as for sheer cloth to give it the effect of this iridescent cloth I once had, that shifted from red-orange to a shimmering gold, and I think it came out well - certainly bright enough! I used a pale blue for her highlights, and her eyes, the same color for both - I wanted to give a little contrast to her cloths and warm skintone. Next up, Horace "Action" Jackson. I love this figure's afro - I wish there were more figures with that style of hair, especially in fantasy. I'm pretty pleased with how he came out! I based his cloths on a bard I painted ages ago. He's going to be a CoC character I play from time to time - a FBI undercover cop in the mid-1900s. The pictures make it obvious I need to go over his hair again, I can't see the irregular bits IRL. Very pleased with his eyes, though - he's got great focus down his sights! And to tease what I'll be finishing up tomorrow, the Pathfinder Venture Captain as a different, more specific fire mage: I decided to do her like a meteor, with strong black sections to break up a ombre from red to nova-white. The dress is just about finished - just the head and arms, and a few more details, to finish up tomorrow, and then she'll be all set. At some point, I'll get these all set up and based, and probably post them again at the end of the month or in February as part of a larger group-shot of everybody I do in the next few weeks - I'm planning to really clear out my PC minis as best I can, since I did so many minis in December that it basically hit my goal for three months in one.
