Ok my daughter has painted a few things since Reapercon and receiving her Vampire box from someone (who I don't think is on the forums yet or does not visit much) and her paints from @Harrek. The first one she chose out of all the minis in the Vampire box was 77137: Sarcophagus: Next she chose a mini that she had painted from my set 2 years ago. 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant: Can you guess which one was from 2 years ago? Today she painted 77067: Virina, Female Demon and wanted to base her so I got out the supplies received at Reapercon. I did the glue work and she did everything else. Front | Back | Alt Front View Any tips on what to do with the based mini from today and protecting it from losing the basing materials? Would the spray on sealer I have help in any way or just mess it up?
*deep breath* I'm trying something completely new here. Actually, not so much one thing as several things. Okay, what I'm really doing is hurling myself at full speed off the cliffs of insanity. Let me explain. Ever since the 2014 Year of the Giants contest was announced, I've had it in my head to paint Yephima as though her exposed skin was a starry night sky, and her skirt like a sunset. This idea has grown until now the following is my plan: - Skin: starry night sky, complete with a few galaxies, a comet, and a few planets. - Hair: Clouds, perhaps as a partly cloudy sky? - Skirt: Either an actual sunset, or just sunset colors. The former is quite likely beyond my skills, given all the folds in her skirt. - Breastplate: stormy sky with the trailing ivy pattern on her left side painted like lightning - Club: Contemplating painting it to look like a crashing waterfall. Haven't decided on this one yet. - Assorted armor bits: Probably silver and gold metallics. Because I need to have some shiny in there! :) - Crown: Bright sun colors, or possibly mimicking the sunset theme from her skirt to draw the eye to her face - Eyes: I was originally considering starry gems, but I just realized they'd get lost in the other stars. Perhaps as nice turquoise cabochon jewels instead? - Base: Either cut her off her current base and attempt to sculpt a cloud-sorta thing, OR find some fine fluffy stuff that can mimic clouds and glue bits all over the included base to make it look like she's standing in/on clouds. I'm more inclined toward the second option, for reasons I'll explain in my next post. Is most of this slightly (or in most cases, a lot) beyond my current abilities? Yes, yes it is. Am I going to go for it anyways? You betcha. I will most likely end up scaling some of these things back, given that I've only got about a month to do this in. But I at least want the skin and the skirt to end up like I'm envisioning. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
