2nd mini painted this weekend for Paint Club. I admit this one posed some interesting challenges that I'm not super thrilled about. Most of that is related to the lack of details to really draw out, but it also highlights my lack of ability to know how to help highlight that muddled scuplt. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Majority of Blink being armor made the choice for colors fairly easy. I once again used the combo of the Gunmetal and Aluminum as the pairing. I like it! * The purple and red seem to be an okay choice for the only real two tones in this model, but I'd like a bit more color. Still a win. * I really went back around 4 times to fix the skin. I found that there were some mold lines I didn't quite scrape off that frustrated me, but even so the colors seem okay. Reaper send me a SAMPLE color that's like THE COLOR of flesh that works in a pinkish hue that I love. LOVE. * The checkering I added to the helm seems to be a fun detail and helps bring out some of the helmet forward. * I used black ink to do black-lining which helped show separation between all of the plates. Win! * Eyes came out great. I wanted to go back and add that little sparkle in the corner of the eye, but I think we all know that one-step-too-far we all can take when it's good enough and then it gets screwed up. Holding back was the way to go. * Trying a lot harder to work the hair with highlights. Did a brown base, lined with brown liner between the strands, then highlighted with brown sand. Works? I think so. Misses: * The dark lining I end up with around the eyes needs to be drawn back further. I can't seem to get around that. It was really present around my Lysette work and shows up strong in this one, too. Wah wah. * I tried using brown liner to bring out the detail in the plates. Wasn't strong enough and too runny in its medium, so I had to swap to black ink. * Not sure I'm a fan of the shield mix of tones with Gunmetal and Aluminium. I think I need input there from y'all. * The horsehair helmet with purple and red...may have been a bit much. Color recommendations? * I liked using a pinkish color for that vial hanging on her belt, but is it too bright? Overall, this little model was not the easiest due to the carve of the model. I do think that this was a great test to see how I could add to it, but still so much to learn on improving things like this with more free hand. Any thoughts?
An older one, but I enjoyed the sculpt. This is a continuation of my practice with purples.... Not much I could do, except the hair... I toyed with the idea of making her much darker looking... but in the end, this is more likely to end up with the PC minis, instead of a villain. Thanks for enjoying my art.
