Medusa is easily among the most beautiful sculpts I've ever painted. My hat is off to Sebastian Archer, he really outdid himself with this one. After I posted the first one, another client asked me to paint her up for him. I mostly followed my original color scheme, except this time I used true metallics in place of the non-metallic metals I used the first time around. I'll need to paint one up for myself sometime. She really just screams to be in a competition. I've posted her to coolmini for anyone who cares to vote. The translucent fabrics make me think I ought to go with links for her: http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-1.JPG?i=1414459205 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-2.JPG?i=1968411908 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-3.JPG?i=239197043
I feel like there have been many renditions of Medusa in miniatures. She's even become a species according to some of the older Dungeons and Dragons stuff I have around here. They even had pictures of child medusas (and it isn't like I haven't painted a cute little medusa before). Well, Arena Rex has some brilliant artwork and sculpting behind their line, so I was very happy to get to paint up their wonderful Medusa. The client really let me make the decisions on this one, so I got to create the pallet as I see her. Here's a link to her CMON page for anyone who cares to vote. She's not exactly naked, but I painted her clothing with a sort of translucent effect, so I figured it might be best to just link her. http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Arena-Rex-Medusa-3.jpg?i=1111592939 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Arena-Rex-Medusa-2.jpg?i=1470265540 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Arena-Rex-Medusa-1.jpg?i=310168408
Here's a Euryale that I got to paint up for a client's Arena Rex game. I really love the sculpts from the whole line- Arena Rex has some outstanding sculptors working with them. Anyway, here she is (you were warned that she's topless). And here's a link to her CMON page for anyone who cares to vote. http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Arena-Rex-Euryale.jpg?i=871108513
I just received my figures from the Arena Rex kickstarter so I put my other projects on hold and began working on one of the gladiators, Otho Mentulus. The sculpt has a lot of great detail so it's a fun one to start with. I do a lot of 54mm figures, so it's a bit of a challenge working on this 35mm scale figure. So far I've focused on the skin. I'm using Rosy Shadow as my base and then mixed into Chestnut Brown and Mahogany Brown (3 parts brown to 1 part Rosy Shadow) to create my darker shadows. For highlighting I mix the Rosy Shadow into Fair Skin and finally Fair Highlight. The way he's hunched over blocks a lot of the light from his front. He here is tilted up a bit for a better view.
