A couple of early holiday presents for a couple of good friends. Up first, Queen Ileosa of Korvosa, in fairly traditional holiday colors: My apologies to any Persians who I might've offended with the poor freehand rendition of the flag on the fan. That's the best that I managed to do it. Also, if you notice some little bits of red on the base under her dress, that's because I'd tried to go with kind of a red carpet look at first, before deciding that it was bad and just doing a sort of snowy base would look much better. And Baba Yaga, in a somewhat dingier take on the color scheme: Gah, this mini was horrible to work with. There was so much flash on the left hand that I thought giving her gloves would look more sensible than melting flesh, and I had to cut off most of the bar under the feet because it was too misshapen to fit into the base slot as it was (and even after that, she looks very off-balance). Then I had a mishap while gluing on the arm and ended up spilling superglue all down the back of it, but fortunately, that dried transparently enough that it only needed some minor touch-ups (plus some matte varnish to kill the shine, but I was going to do that all over it anyway). No blog link this time, since I felt like dissecting the process of making them as I usually do wouldn't be appropriate for minis that I was painting as gifts. C&C on the end results is welcome, though . The recipients both loved them, so feel free to be extra harsh to balance it out Oh, and sorry for the reflective glare in most of the photos. I'm still trying to work out the picture set-up.
Queen Ileosa, with a base made from countertop color matching samples. I figured, it's designed to look like marble / stone, so why not? I don't know whether to continue my sheer cloth attempt, or just give up and turn it back into red though, and I don't know what color to make her vest corset thing. Her back will be painted to look like peacock feathers. Yes, that is metallic blue in her hair. Perhaps too blatant. Should I tone it down? A conversion of Hannah Blackruby from a sorceress to simply a noble lady, involving twisting her hand sideways and epoxying in the rod from Sheila Heidmarch's weapon sprue (which I wasn't going to use). I have to say, I was expecting her arm to snap off halfway through; I now have a newfound respect for JB Weld, and I'm using it a lot more now. Her color scheme is more decided, and yes her gloves and coat lining will be white leather. I'm inclined to switch to a different color for her purse though; a white bag makes her right arm hard to read. Critique, comments, suggestions?
