  1. Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini. 30001 Lysette, Elven Mage
  2. I tried to spend a bit more time on the Bones USA minis of the month. More time on highlights, and more painted shading (rather than just washes). I tried a Yennefer theme for Lysette, due to choices I made in Witcher 3. Just need to buy a unicorn...
  3. Hello everyone, I enjoyed painting the new Bones USA Lysette. I think on this one I tried to go for glowing Irises with a yellow green color, but perhaps against a white eye it's not as noticeable until you zoom in. I''m happy to see the other Bones USA so far seem to have quite high detail. especially the Leprechaun and the mouse on Darius the Wizard, so I look forward to painting those as well.
  4. Got another one in, but still some work to do. BATTLE REPORT! This is the new USA Bones material. I found that the texture of this plastic is really nice to work on. A bit stiffer, which I prefer akin to the Bones Black more than classic bones. Cleaning it was not as fun as it seems to shred more than peel away. It doesn't take well to scraping, but if you're cutting into it, it's fine. Areas that were difficult were the hands, under the arm, and the staff. Overall the model was very clean considering how little flash was on it. Definitely liking this new stuff.
  5. I must admit that from all the Bones 4 core set minis, the Chibis were the ones voted "most likely to stay in their bags" when the KS shipment arrived, as superderformed/ chibi models like these are not really my cup of tea. They are way out of my comfort zone to paint, with all that skin, hair and large surfaces needing somewhat smooth transitions that I am not really any good at. But they have grown on me somewhat, especially since I decided to do them even more cartoony in style than I usually do. Themselves being very cartoony and all. They do look much smoother IRL when not magnified
  6. After almost a month of working on it, I finally managed to finish this one. Whew! It was fun to try to push myself further with blending colors using glazing (and the sheer cloth look turned out decent, too), but I really underestimated how much trouble it'd be when I started on it. As usual, more pictures and my thought process are on my blog: link I could've done with a bit more red glazing on the front of the skirt, but otherwise, I'm rather pleased with the results that I got from the parts that I really put effort into (I took the lazy way out on some parts toward
  7. I got a bunch of these with my last order, so I figured they'd make some good practice. Bonus points for having a major cloth area, so it'd be a chance to make up for the poor job I did of blending the layers on the cloth of my last mini. As ever, more pictures and my thought process are on my blog: link All in all, I'm very happy with how this one went. The cloth is MUCH better than what I did last time, I think the hair looks good for my first time doing an orange-leaning brunette (though I should've pushed the highlights further; a recurring p
  8. This was a piece done for another friend of mine. It's based off one of his characters, a sorceress named Allana. He told me she was pale, even for an elf, and had long red hair. Other than that, he left the rest to me. All I really knew about the character was she was from a noble family, and that she dressed nicely. I though the yellow and green made a good look, contrasting with her red hair. The ruby in her staff was meant to further the contrast. Hope you like it! EDITED slightly - used a different light set up to snap the picture. CAH
  9. These are two figures I did for table top. I started Lysette awhile back before I learned a different way to do eyes. When I picked her back up, I decided not to redo the eyes so she has a "deer in the headlights" look about her. I tried several different things on her - glazing, a little "what happens if I add purple and yellow to her red hair?", and a touch of two brush blending. Alastriel also got to be a guinea pig. She got my first dark skin tone, two brush blending, and freehand. It was a good lesson in what worked and what didn't and how to improve on the next one. Alastriel isn't b
  10. Hi everyone, This is the Bones version of Lysette that I got with my Kickstarter. Started her last November when it was cold and thought "Let's paint her in a winter theme." Well, now it's no longer cold, but she's done. I painted the metal version of her long time ago for my Warlord Elves, but that was sort of a green Spring theme, so I had fun taking her in a different direction. Feedback welcome! Thanks for looking.
  11. You know, no matter how hard I try to get smooth blends on the face, I just can't get away from the stippling effect. Anyone have any thoughts? I rushed the end of this, so in hindsight would have put more definition into her corset. I went for an autumn theme, given the season. I think I google imaged autumn colors- there's an awful lot of fashion info out there that is very useful for palette planning. Enjoy! Colors- flesh is fair skin with some pure white, blood red and intense brown. Eyes/eye makeup are IMEF olive. Hair is ruddy brown, blood red, saffron sunset and sun yellow
  12. Finally finished Lysette (Bones 77076), who were meant to enter the beauty pageant, but she got lost on my work table... Also finished Lindir (Bones 77021) at last, he was lost on that same workbench for about 9 months...
  13. You can see her entry in the appropriate thread for the contest here. She's been a bit rushed. I joke about the covered tattoos, but as a Kagonesti I intended to put a sleeve on her exposed calf. I may very well do so, but life got in the way of painting her more than this. So here she is, to the standard of "done," and there are things I'm happy with. The color palette I like, although the skin comes very close to being the same color as her skirt. For as quickly as I did it, I'm actually quite happy with the wood on the staff. As always, C&C welcome and encouraged.
  14. Lysette (sounds like Norwegian "Lyset" literally "The Light") became Murkette (sounds like Norwegian "Mørket" literally "The Darkness"), and my entry for the Bones Beauty Pageant 2013 found her direction! Murkette To’ken represents the Beneathdark in the Beauty Pageant, being the official Miss Beneathdark and sole survivor of the preliminaty Beneathdark pageants. The other contestants mysteriously suffering strange, and completely unrelated, series of accidents and illnesses. Several dying of natural causes (coming down with particulary violent cases of the stabbings). Indeed th
  15. Hello forum folks I have not been painting anything the last half year or so, as my left elbow and lower arm have not been working properly, ligament problems leaving me unable to hold anything small still for any length of time, or at all. But it is getting better, and I have been getting a lot of prepwork done on of alot of the masses and masses of minis that have arrived, fulfilling the last years kickstarters. The Kings of War and Reaper Bones has been delivered and are now complete, and the third and last Dreadball shipment is probably in the mail, leaving me with more minis than spa
  16. I'm still fairly new to this hobby, and I've decided that my impatience is harming my paint-jobs. I've therefore decided to jump on board Inarah's challenge and paint Lysette. I'm hoping people here can help analyse my process and identify why, precisely, I suck :) Just some shadow coats for now: Vallejo Yellow Olive, Auburn Shadow, Fair Shadow and Flesh Wash: The eyes aren't quite working for me at the moment. Any suggestions?
  17. The Bones version of Lysette, painted for Inarah's 1st Reaper Beauty Pageant. WIP here
