  1. So I'm working on a really small figure a newish Tom Meier Halfling Druid from DarkSword Miniatures. I painted the eyes and was kind of satisfied with them but one seems to be bigger than the other, which means I think I painted the black first outside of the target eye that was sculpted. One eye is okay the other one it too big: so when we get really close to the figure I can see how uneven she is, but she is really, really small: So my first general question is, would this be enough to frustrate somebody to repaint? So
  2. My son's DM wanted a purple beholder with red eyes.
  3. I painted an eyebeast for the D&D Painting class I was teaching One of the techniques we were working on was blending so I wanted to make sure that I chose colors that the techniques would show well hence the bright green and pink. The class was fun and everyone's eyebeasts turned out great!
  4. (apologies for large sections of text- I like trying to explain what I'm thinking as I'm going, but I promise it will have lots of pictures!) Right, so I need to get started on a few new projects and one of the things folks expressed an interest in after reapercon was busts. I went and bought this bust: …planning to see if I could use it for a class. And when it came, I realized it was a bit larger than I expected, even with the description. Also, the mold removal didn’t seem to go very well for the sender, so I wasn’t as happy with it as I might have been. Howe
  5. So I am working on a batch of vampires. Up until now I have generally painted vampire eyes either like regular eyes, but red or kind of glowy red-gold. I felt like I wanted to try some other options. So I gessoed a piece of bristol board and painted a patch of grey on it (I paint vampire skin grey and white) and added some black blodges to represent eye sockets. From the centimeter scale, you can see that these are way bigger than mini eyes. That is because I am not a masochist where practice is concerned.
  6. Since I can't for the life of me get the seam lines and fuzzies off my Bones Succubus, thought I would use it to practice eye painting since I've only painted one mini so far. Here is my attempt from last night. Deck tan for whites, black brown for liner. Nevermind the Skin painting, was just for cutting in the liner. I used red oil paint on a pin to make the iris. I think it turned out great, but seems to me there has to be a way to cheat at this. The anxiety and anguish of trying over and over and having ruined it at various steps is frustrating. This one took me 3 tries. Anyo
  7. Hi All, So for those that pay the least bit of attention to what I paint, you may have noticed that I paint mostly Ral Partha figures, which is a brand I really do enjoy quite a lot. I've been painting figures for their online catalogue for a number of years, and I just recently tried my hand at my first little tutorial, which was posted over at their site. If you are at all curious, you could find it here: http://www.ralpartha.com/index.php/blog/119-painting-guide-eyes-and-faces It is by no means the end-all, be-all of painting eyes, but just shows the way I ty
  8. I started this figure for my friends celebrating this month. I have had the figure for many years, and the one I have isn't the best cast, but she'll be beautiful. Plan is to have brown outer dress, darkish hair, and rainbow wings. Tried a new eyes technique; I mixed Schubert's method with the Bette Davis method. DKS's guide has the eyes after shading up the face, and the Bette Davis ones are at the start, then cover the edges. I used DKS at the start instead of the end, so I can still meet the eyeliner as I fill in the face.
  9. http://figurementors.com/method-for-painting-eyes-on-busts-and-smaller-scales The amazing and generous David Powell (bailey03 on this forum) is back with another tutorial to help us all be just a bit more awesome! Great read, very close to the method I used for my Nocturna bust last year. https://cashwiley.com/2015/12/27/scottish-highlander/
  10. Hey all! I posted a few days ago about being new and now I'm back to painting my fourth figure. I tried tackling my biggest issue, which was eyes. And honestly i was kind of happy with the product until i took the picture for this thread and now i hate the eyes :p. I think I'll just leave them as is to save me my sanity. But here's my progress as of now. Ideally I'd like to get the figure done in one sitting but I got out of work late and spent almost two hours on just the face so that's probably not happening. I'll keep painting and post what I've completed whenever I give up for the nigh
  11. So always have fun with eyes (not) and anyway, I'm wondering how, or if, I would go about adapting the lining the eye technique for a dark skin tone? Or if anyone has any advice on painting eyes with dark skin tone, that'd be awesome too! I'm terrible with eyes anyway so all the help I can get is awesome thanks :D
  12. This was supposed to be a quick tabletop paint. The eyes and teeth are so numerous that this is a bit of a pain. Not to be taken lightly. Has anyone separated the mini to paint it in pieces and then re-glued it? It would probably be easier. There were places I couldn't get to at all. I'm pretty happy with how gooey and alien this turned out. I wanted to do the eyes in full black (I did blue liner instead) and something about the lack of pupils really works for me. I had real problems painting over the pink at some points. For whatever reason it was on pretty thick. You can see a few of
  13. I hate eyes on miniatures. There...I got it off my chest. I'm not bad at painting eyes. Some of the FAQ's on these boards are top-notch concerning the subject. And when I see what the pro's can do, the first thing I think is "Wow, what talent. Those are amazing peepers." Which is usually followed by "And I don't like them." Maybe it's because they look too cartoony. Maybe it's the scale. Maybe it's the flat or amorphous features around the face, or the size limitations, or maybe (most probably) my brain is broken. But I seem to gravitate toward implied eyes with shading, glasses, goggl
  14. I'd posted this comment under one of my current WIP's, but figured it would be better served here: Eyes! Brush or Sakura Pigma Micron Pens? I've been experimenting with attempting colored irises, but I'm not sure that I still have (or at least haven't developed) the manual dexterity to pull them off. I'm 37, so I'm not sure if that's still an option or not. I think I'm okay with Jazzy's Liriel, but with Vic, her eyes are so tiny I'm going to have to suffice with the standard Walnut eyes. I've heard some people use Microns, so I'm curious about that option... So, who uses brushes, who u
