I very rarely bother to do Show Offs of my work, partially because getting good pictures is a hassle and partially because my painting isn't all that amazing. But I'm trying to put together a collection of useful miniatures for the Savage Tide adventure path and this was one of the things I painted for it. It's supposed to be Harliss Javell, but I got a little carried away before I realized that she is not a recurring NPC. In the end I decided that I'd already spent way too much time on a single piece so any awesome reflections you see are likely the result of real light and are not paint. (The photos are actually a little bright, but I figured that was better than too dark.) I'm not going to give away too much description of the character since @Wise Kraken and @GodOfCheese are both players, but she's an imposing ship's captain of unknown reputation.
So, a looooooong time ago, I painted this as a gift to my then-girlfriend (now wife), known to a few around here as Nissiana: Then the 54mm "Master Series" came out. Nissiana picked up the Monique DeNoir figure and painted a stellar monochrome version as a gift for me. Around the same time (shortly after the model was released, so early 2008), I picked up the 54mm counterpart of the above figure, Maria Roseblade. I intended at the time to paint her as a gift to Nissiana...and I started painting her. Got a few basecoats, even. Then, other projects for games, contests, etc. cropped up and Maria was sidelined. It's been a running joke ever since, as Nissiana knows about the intended gift. So, before mid-March 2018, I want to finish this up. Here's where we are: I want to follow the oxblood leather/blue top ideas of the original figure, but the light blue piping is getting replaced with ivory lace. I'm also happy with where I left a lot of the skin, so I don't need to repaint much. But there's plenty left to do! The white patch on her thigh is greystuff, required for some gap filling. Here we go!
