Finally finished(ish) my players' PCs for our ongoing game of D&D. They all still need bases, and there was one latecomer whose mini I'm going to start in earnest now, but the figures themselves are done so I thought I'd show you guys. (All are in Bones.) First is Daughter Ren, human cleric of Broxin, homebrew goddess of motherhood and honorable combat. Her face is a little wonky, in large part due to a botched facial-reconstructive surgery on my part, since she came without a nose. Still, I'm pretty pleased with how she came out. A good experiment in highlighting red, into orange on her coat and into white on the gemstones. It's a pity they discontinued this mini; I'd really like another go at her in another color scheme but can't see myself getting the metal one anytime soon. Next is Kaida, eladrin rogue. Pretty simple, but I do really like her face and the color-shifting(?) on her cloak. The sealer turned out too shiny on her; some of those highlights aren't actually paint. Perra Bloodbane, dragonborn fighter, was relatively simple, by comparison. I'm not thrilled with her little cloth thing, and I need to learn how to shade yellow better (though I'd sort of figured it out by the time I did Ren). Pretty pleased with the flaming sword (which I added from a spare paladin after she got one in-game), and my light OSL on the armor, where I used a mix of silver and copper paint to indicate the reflection of the fire. Next is Lillith, elven druid, who was quite an adventure to paint (you can find a partial WIP here). I don't like the sculpt very much to begin with, the cast is weird and bumpy, and then my initial attempt to paint it turned out alarmingly garish. Pingo's suggestion of a unifying colored shadow sorted me out though, and I ended up pretty pleased with the final result. She's pictured here with her "animal companion," a dog whose name I don't remember. Last up is Lalopan Maxia, half-elf Star Pact warlock. I'm really proud of him. I got a little drained towards the end, so some of the fiddly bits are a little rougher than I'd like, but for the most part I think he's one of my best minis to date, especially in the face area. I also really like his sword blade; it was a pretty effective study in shaded metallics. Comments and criticisms welcome! (Yes, I know I need to do something about the bases and also that I need to dust my minis before I take pictures of them.)
So I'm painting up this mini to represent an elven druid for a PC in my campaign. She has a focus on winter and ice powers, so I thought I'd paint her up in fall colors (green, through yellow/orange/red, into brown, plus some icy blue/white). Unfortunately, this ended up being a really horrible and garish looking motley. I'd really rather not repaint her entirely, in part because I think that from the back, she actually looks pretty good, and I really like the almost gem-like quality of her robe-thing. Also, I'm just frustrated and want to be done with this mini. She's definitely the worst Bone I've painted yet; I don't like the sculpt to begin with, and then she's covered in these weird bumps and stuff (though at least she had her nose). Anyway, it seems to me that there are probably way too many different colors on her, but I'm not sure what to simplify to get the most bang for my buck in terms of redoing work. Thoughts?
