Below is my spring exchange sent to Fanguard "the god of exchanges" so the pressure was on. he wanted something,, and I quote "Maybe something inspired by "Fairy Tail" the anime/manga" So after doing some research and watching a number of Anime shorts online, I selected one of the main characters to emulate along with a background character. Of course I did not choose one of the "good" "guys", instead I went for one of the bad girls! Using 60129: Chelaxian Infernal Binder as the mini I give you Minerva Orlando of the Sabertooth guild! I tried to imitate her power build up magic vortex in her casting hand, which always happens just before she casts a spell. The colors overall are loosely based on the character including her signature whites scarf. I , of course, had too add my own signature color (orange) as well. Then I added the background Palace guard character. The guards show up in the series in the last episode I watched,,, just cause! here is 14407: Crusader Templar Ironspine as the guard in his dress palace colors! I hope you enjoy and all feedback is appreciated!
With all the black on the model, contrasted by the stark white hair, this was very difficult to photograph. I need to dig up a good mid-grey backdrop for something like this. edit 12/15/13: new pics! Damn that speck of dust on the shoulder. I'll take another round of pics once I get a better backdrop. The blacks really do go right to Pure Black and the hair has some interesting blue shadows that are pretty much lost. I think I'm also hobbled a bit by my ancient camera, the dern thing is 8 years old now! I'm quite happy with how it came out overall. I feel my gold getting better, I'm starting to get a feel for where to lay in the highs and lows. A few stumbles here and there, but as usual I learned a lot painting this one. I think it does a pretty nice job at portraying Storm, too! [url=WIP]http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47459-60129-chelaxian-infernal-binder-ororo/]WIP thread here
Hey kids, here comes the WIP thread for RPG's current paint challenge. I wasn't going to participate because I had my next several projects pretty well mapped out...but I'm an old comics geek from the 70s/80s. So I started poking through my Reaper box for something that jumped out as a hero (or villain) from that era and though I had three or four options, this Chelaxian just screamed Ororo Monroe, Storm of the X-Men. Reference pics of this mini painted by Martin and a pic of Ororo.
