  1. Painted this for a friend who requested an egyptian eye to be painted on the standard. I don't do much freehand stuff, hopefully he will like it. I was going for a magic bottle containing maybe spirits inside, but could not make a ghost face on the bottle without it looking like Casper. :P Hope you enjoy
  2. Man, I hate learning things the hard way. This is Argia Tholos from Hasslefree Miniatures and the original figure is bald. Which she was up until I saw the result of my second layer of floor polish to varnish the figure. She had been hanging upside down to dry which had created a egg head effect when the floor polish collected on the top of her head. I tried to cut it off but eventually was forced to scalp her completely. That resulted in a mark down to the skull which would have been kind of neat if I had painted her up as a zombie. Since I wasn't doing that I was forced to break out some milliput and use my non existent sculpting talents to try and save the situation. It could definitely have been worse, but it could also have been much much better. Although there's nothing I can do about that now. Looking past the major varnish failure I was really happy with the result. The resulting miniature post "Project save face" is acceptable. Perhaps abit to much orange all around? Should I have gone for a different hair color?
  3. I was going for a Final Fantasy White Mage type deal.
  4. Ok, this one is all Ub3r's fault. During a Facebook conversation he talked me into attending and entering the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Show last month. I had just received an order from Dark Sword which contained this mini and I had to paint her. I pictured her coming up to a ravine in a forest that was not easily crossed with a creek or river running through it. Ub3r suggest a broken bridge and since I had already been thinking of doing an intact bridge, I went with it. So she was painted up and entered. I entered three pieces into their Advanced Painters, Fantasy category: this one; Albert from Hasslefree; and my Dark Sword Assassin from last September. As this was an open/medal competition, she was chosen as the piece judged and got me a Silver Medal, both of which means that my skills have improved since last year. Without further ado: ]
  5. Hey! I painted the model of wizard Leisyn, Mage Mercenaries! And HERE you will find a post on my blog!
  6. I finished up this project this morning. The staff/glaive is my second real attempt at NMM and I'm not entirely happy with the transitions. All part of practicing, though. She was a fun one to paint!
  7. Alright, first off this is all Ub3r's fault. We were discussing competitions, mainly a show that is local to me held by the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Society (SCAHMS). He was able convince me to go and while I can bring some of my older pieces, I wanted to do a piece specifically for the show. So my mind jumped immediately to the Elmore Female Mage/Druid that I just got in from Dark Sword and doing a forest style base. So, on to the miniature. I am not sure why, but I locked into painting her skirt a purplish red with a pink top. It took me a while to decide on the cape color but playing with the color wheel on my iPad got me to dark green. The colors in this mock up are a little off but it gives you the general idea. Here is the primed figure and the mock-up, the mock-up was done over the painted example from the web store so ignore the underlying freehand on the skirt. The design on the cape is a test for my freehand idea. And to the base. I wanted to do a forest base to test out some basing material I just got but I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do. So I went through Massive Voodoo's tutorials, hoping that something would spark an idea and it did. Their basing with cork tutorial made me think of the ravines/crevices in forests that have a river/creek running between pillars of rock. So I took that idea and ran with it. The first picture is the rough positioning, the second and third are where it stands now with some thin "trees", more cork, and sand added. There will be a broken wood rope bridge opposite of her and water at the bottom. Any input would be appreciated.
  8. I got back to the Bones 1 Kickstarter Necromancer set this past week, and painted the Leisynn, Mercenary Mage figure. I was apprehensive going in to this figure, as it just seemed so busy with all the horns, the ornate staff and book, and the huge shoulder pads and skull-decorated hangings coming off of them. I was further discouraged when halfway though painting him I discovered he has a mold line running down his face! I knew I had to do him, so the only way to finish a figure is to start with the first color, and just keep adding one more color after that. I actually grew to like this figure as I went along; and I think he turned out looking much better than I had expected. I'm now torn as to which figure to use as my Frostgrave Necromancer; this figure, or Malek,http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67797-malek-necromancer-77172bones/ , who I completed a couple weeks ago. As always, C & C welcome.
  9. Painted this guy up to be my hubby's new illusionist character. I had a love/hate thing going with him (Seltyiel not my hubby) for the past couple of days. He has so many little fiddly bits and it was hard to tell what some things were. Even looking at painted examples in the Inspiration Gallery didn't always work so I guessed at a few things. I am also not a huge fan of the spell effect thingie. There are some things I am super proud of and some....not so much. He is for playing with though so I tried not to stress too much about the mistakes. So, here he is just in time for tomorrow's game, Seltyiel who from now on will be known as Finagus the Illusionist who is also an archaeologist.
  10. This is a PC (oracle, half-elf) from a campaign we finished last November. I altered (made less "poofy") her hair and changed out the top of her staff. Not happy at all with the face but this is the Bones version and it was slightly miscast/wonky. I was quite happy with the gradient on her robes which doesn't show that well here. Table Top quality, but I do take a bit longer on PC models. Phone pics suck, sorry.
  11. This commission ended up not being a very tall order. I made short work of it.
  12. I am trying to pick up painting again after a very busy time. This female mage is a bit of a test with OSL. Not really sure if I pulled it of to my liking. The fox is from another set from dark sword. Now I see the pictures I can see some more damage from when I dropped her. The tree I made myself.
  13. So, just got the bases finished up on my Stonehaven elves. Out of the five I've been working on, got four of them done and here they are! I'm in a pretty good mood because even though the initial photographed seemingly turned out yellowish and odd, I was able to just hit the Color button on the editing function and they cleared up to very close to their actual photos. I've been painting Ral Partha figures forever and a day, and this was the first time in a while I've moved over to a different brand, and I really enjoyed painting these figures. One of the nice things about these were the size. I'm not going to lie, bigger is easier. I've got another elf I'm working on, still in the WIP, and once I get him done, I'll go back to painting more Partha stuff. But in the meantime, enjoy!
  14. I've had this little fella close to finish since the end of last year. He had a couple of accidents in the process of getting finished. Yet, I finished him. Here is an example of why I can't paint table top. He was started with the idea of creating a warband for Burrows and Badgers. If I keep at this rate I should have one finished by the end of the year. That being said, I enjoyed painting him up. I am also enjoying finally finishing him. I hope you enjoy looking at him. Thanks for any looking and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  15. My last topic on this forum was a Brandle Birchstaff and I liked him so much that I decided to paint another!
  16. I finally painted up this mage, which I've had since the first Bones Kickstarter. Doesn't look like the non-metal version is for sale anymore, and I'm guessing that's because the mold is a little messy (the left side of her face and her pointing hand were pretty mangled and I couldn't entirely fix them). Still, I really like the robes since it gave me a nice place to practice simple clothing trim.
  17. This was the mini I painted for Siri, 02835: Jolie, Female Scribe. Also added to the vignette was the Imp w/Book from Familiars II (14087), the Crystal from Kal'Valanis, Lich Queen (03187), and a couple of books I had in my bits box. The vignette is on a (Foundations 2 sample) 50mm flagstone base from Forge Prints. I don't have the part numbers for the Reaper parts, since the Boneyard is down right now. In her request, Siri stated that she liked purple, so purple she got: As always, c & c welcome. EDIT: Apparently, I like to take pictures before I finish things. The books have writing in them now.
  18. Finally got around to finishing up the base for this figure. I've had her finished for awhile now, but I wasn't sure how to finish off her base. Here is what I finally ended up with. PS: I plan to take better shots with another camera since I feel she deserves better shots. But I just wanted to post her since I was so glad to get her finished. Edit: different camera with other's shown beside for difference.
  19. The freehand is supposed to be of a nebula. It's the first freehand I attempted and I think it worked out pretty well as long as I preface with the proclamation that it's supposed to be a nebula
  20. With my old combined Reaper WIP thread rendered useless by Imageshacks ineptitude, I've decided to resurrect it as a series (hopefully!) of single WIPs. Starting with the Diabolist:- I've done the skin:- Based with my new Vallejo Elf Flesh, Flesh Shade Wash and highlights of Elf Flesh and 1:1 Elf Flesh/Off-White. I also mixed a drop of Vallejo Hexed Lichen into the final highlight mix for a touch of lipstick and eye-shadow (she also has teeny tiny Vallejo Wolf Grey eyes). Also did her hair:- Based with LED Blue and then washed with GW Gulliman Blue Glaze. I tried putting some white highlights on it, but it kept leaking into the grooves, so I gave up.
