Hello all you Reapertonians, tonight I've got a few Ral Partha figures, originally sculpted back in the eighties by Tom Meier and no re-released by Ral Partha Legacy. With these two by pure coincidence I've also painted these quite a many years ago, so I've got a new version as well as the old version that I painted probably almost a decade ago. So here are the new ones, the female thief I liked how her face came out, hence the close up, but that inside space between nose and hair was a pretty rough cast. And now the Mage: and because I painted these way back when, when I was first getting back into painting (I might even have some of these somewhere in the Reaper Forums archives if I looked hard enough) here are the older versions, which way back when I thought they were pretty decent, but now I at least feel like I've gotten better: and for even more fun and jubilation, some straight off comparison shots: There was a part of me that wanted to replicate the original colors in the new models as well, and maybe some day I'll go back and do that, but for now wanted a bit of variety between the older ones and the new ones. So anyway, hope you enjoy!
Good afternoon Reapercochlians! So here's one I just finished, a female elf mage, with wand, sculpted by Tom Meier for the last Ral Partha Legacy Kickstarter As always no idea what colors I wanted but something light and pastel. As Mr. Meier is rather infamous for, it's so hard to hit his eyes properly, they are so small. So from the collective hive mind, when you have small eyes on a figure, do you try to keep within the actual confines of what has been sculpted or do you go outside of the boundaries? Anyhoos, here she is: and here's a close up of her face with the eyes: Besides eyes, I'm finding my new favorite hard and horrible thing to paint are the eyebrows. With this one, I almost didn't want to add eyebrows, thinking she's blonde, maybe you wouldn't even see them, but then of course I started looking for blonde elves on line and they are all presented with brows. As you can see, one is a bit different than the other. Sometimes just impossible to get them to look the same. Anyhoos, enjoy!
