  1. I recently painted the two rakshasas, sculpted by Christine Van Patten (Rainbow Sculptor), for a second time. The first time (two years ago) was for Reaper's collections. The Forum post for them is here. I saw them in the display cases of the Reaper Game Store when I was down for ReaperCon in September. These were for the sculptor's personal collection. They didn't have item numbers two years ago, but now they are 20902 and 20945, so I added those numbers as tags to the earlier post. As with the first renditions, I painted her with cheetah colors and him with tiger colors. I wonder whether anyone else has painted them as different big cats, such as a white tiger or a leopard or a black panther. I tried some different colors and patterns for their clothing. His trousers are somewhat simpler this time, for example. I also used a different style for their eyes: red with black pupils and yellow-orange glints this time, rather than the pupil-less red glow like last time. Enjoy! Derek
  2. If you bought the Bones V "Fan Favorites" expansion, you probably expected the female rakshasa (#902) ... but didn't expect to get a male, too. Surprise! Pics and then words: Christine Van Patten (Rainbow Sculptor) sculpted them, from art by Izzy "Talin" Collier. Both have the creepy reversed hands with sharp claws, human-feline monstrous bodies, and big-cat heads. I painted his head as the expected tiger, but for variety I painted hers as a cheetah. (Indeed cheetahs are native not only to Africa but also to Iran/Persia and India, where nobility used to train them for hunting. But humans hunted cheetahs to extinction in India in the 1940s, and lately the Indian government has proposed reintroducing cheetahs into the wild.) Anyway, rakshasas are mythical fiends of the material world -- diabolical sybarites and hedonists all. These figures already have fancy outfits and jewelry sculpted on, so I made sure to paint the fabrics extra-fancy. Enjoy! - Derek
