  1. Hello all you Reaper people! So, Bones V will be hopefully arriving in the next few months, and one thing I told myself was that before I got my package, I wanted to finish the smaller Yephima sculpt before the new and larger Yephima shows up at my door. I really love both versions, and I just wish this Yephima would be available in metal. I tried painting her already years ago, started even a WIP in the forum, which I'd have to hunt down. My original thought was make her a very, dark dusky color and blonde hair with pinks and oranges, but at one point my inspiration w
  2. I'm trying to improve my flesh tones, and for some reason it helps me to do it with inhuman tones to get the technique down before moving to more realistic stuff. I'm not quite sure how it's going so far. If nothing else, Yephima's proving that I need to practice some blending and feathering. Still need to highlight the Wereboar. I love the muscularity of this guy, he was fun to wash!
  3. The female changed from being a Storm Giant to being a Cloud Giant between the kickstarter and the retail release of the miniature. Whatever the subtype, she still gets a case of Smurfette syndrome. The pose of the female is a bit strange, and she does have a certain supermodel-vibe going on. Reaper has explained that the pose was meant to illustrate her bending down to talk to someone human sized, and as such it is not too bad. But taken out of context it just comes off as a bit cheesecake-ish. Reaper has acknowledged that the pose did not work as intended. The swimsuit-like
  4. So now that the contest is over, here's my Giant entry. I was short on time (and may go back and highlight and drybrush to finish), so I did not do as well on her as I wanted. Hope you all like the use of breast cancer pink:)
  5. I had a lot of fun with this, but I think she looks more like a storm giant, so I painted her how I thought she would look. This is a better photo pair than the last Reaper quarterly contest (which I photographed and took a not-as-good photo of her). Her basing is made of the Happy Seppuku "Splintered Wood" stamp, the sand/asphalt stamp, and a resin railroad rock I cast myself to look as if it were "un polished marble." The pink/purple armor was a decision by my daughter, who wants everything to be pink and/or purple. As always, C&C welcome!
  6. Got this guy from the by the ounce boxes at the ironwind booth at Gencon a few years ago. Just got him together and started just before this past gencon. He's my first attempt at greenstuffing a min to make it fir smoothly together. I don't think I did so hot on that. I tried to make it look like pieces of leather that were part of his loin cloth. Other than that I like how he turned out. Comments and critiques welcome. I'm fairly pleased with his face. Sorry about the mostly similar pictures. The Ipad and my lighting were being finicky together.
  7. I've been painting up a few batches of minis for a client out in Oregon. This happens to be the 2nd Cloud Giant (by the wonderful Julie Guthrie btw) that I have painted. The first was my own. My client told me to go nuts on him, so I decided to bust my butt on him using nothing but NMM for his weapons and armor. She has since seen the pics and told me it was, in her words "Magnificent" and "Fantastic". So, having already had my ego stroked, I shall toss him to your critiques and judgments O Reaper Forum Folks! LOL He took me about 10 hours to paint, most of them spent on the "bronze" of his
  8. So looking around the forums and I found the Year of the Giant painting contest. Since I was in an inspired painting mood I decided to break out Yephima and the male storm giant. I went and looked at alot of the other submitted giants in show-off, WIP, and Inspiration gallery. I was really inspired by Pragma's Storm Giant, especially the lava cracks on the shoulder. I decided to try and go the literal 'storm' giant route and went looking at photos of lighting strikes. I saw lots of blues, reds, purples, and whites, then I saw this one, I love the blue/green-teal highlighting the greys of th
  9. Figured that since I have been lurking so long then I might as well post my most recent learning experiment. I started painting miniatures in September at Dragon*Con and have sense fallen in love with it. I'm still learning a lot of techniques to see what works best for me and what just doesn't work at all....example: I'm terrible at glazing. @[email protected] That's my first bit of work, not sure if its a Reaper miniature though, but sense then I have achieved this sort of quality. She's only half way finished but so far I think she's pretty good. I can tell where I have improved b
  10. Yephima is one of my favourite new sculpts from the KS1 set so I decided I would make her my second bones paint. First I had to fix her left foot though - the last three toes and part of the left side were simply missing, so I used some liquid green stuff to create some new toes. You can see the result here. There was also a weird, sinuous, flash mark along the ground between her left foot and the edge of her skirt where one side of the ground was a little higher than the other so I couldn't really file it off. Since I was mucking around with the liquid green stuff in the area anyway I
  11. So I've finally finished my last of my Ral Partha giant quartet. Just got the grass put on about thirty minutes ago and might need a slight non-giant break for a wee bit. With this one, figuring he was a cloud giant, I actually used rainy gray, then cloudy gray as his main colors and worked from there. It's a little monochromatic with whites, greys and black, but added just a tad bit of color with his shield belt buckle (it's supposed to be a cloud with a lightning bolt in case anybody's wondering). I also tried giving him some pink eyes as I could just kind of see some adventurers pick
