Bold Miniatures: Vesha. Self-inspired.
Cyradis posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI still don't have a great photography setup, so despite efforts, this is fairly washed out (pinks in the cheeks aren't as apparent as IRL, and the hair is dulled in the photos). But until I can get figures in for a photoshoot with a friend, these will do. Sloppy selfie with the inspiration for the figure setup, before I try to dye my hair back to normal. Been teal for 9 months now, and I miss my blonde. I painted the figure roughly as myself, instead of with ideal artistic combinations. The patch on the back isn't really the coolest, but that's our work group's logo (and a diagram of part of my PhD research). So it is a personal design, distinctly not artistic. Also dragon instead of weasel.... heh. Project was part of the Season 3 for the Vancouver Mini Painting Club TADA.
Demigoddesses Don't Wear Panties - Pic Heavy
Cyradis posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI got half decent photos! Aside from a little lint and not being 100%... but they're better than what I did before! I needed my dress pants for a usable backdrop, and I had to get my finger in the photo then crop it out for color balance, but it is okay! This is Aeon Trespass's Knowledge Nymph, as a demigoddess character in my world - The Watcher. Aletheia, former Loremistress who sacrificed herself for her library, and was raised as a demigoddess, then given the job of recording the history and stories of the region. Although she is strictly lawful, she doesn't really feel the need for undergarments. She likes her pajamas, and doesn't get many visitors in her "nest". Of Interest and Learning: First time painting sheer cloth. The super fine wrinkles on the small of her back made this tricky, but the rump was good for testing it out! I tried to paint the floor and her console/podium to look like marble stone, with simple paint on it. I tried to use desaturated colors for the books, so that the viewer would see them but focus on her instead. Open books shouldn't have nothing in them, so I popped on diagrams and scribbles (some roughly in Greek characters). Comments and critique are welcome! RED PEN ME.
Demigoddesses don't have undergarments
Cyradis posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI love this figure. It is Aeon Trespass's Nymph of Knowledge (thanks @Paradoxical Mouse!) I decided to make her an NPC in my D&D campaign. So... I created a demigoddess in the world. She is a guardian of history and truth. She was elevated to being a demigoddess for her heroic sacrifice. She was the loremistress of the best library on the material plane, but the library was destroyed in civil wars. She managed to shove the most precious knowledge in the library into a small pocket dimension, but fell to the fire herself. Upon being reassembled as a demigoddess, she'd gotten merged with her kestrel familiar, and now she's partially feathered. She lives in her pocket dimension, seeing what happens in the world, recording significant events and pointing significant people to their appropriate deities (or the deities to them). And.... she really doesn't have a need for undies anymore. Not done but getting closer! First try at sheer cloth. The rump part isn't too bad on that, but the wrinkles in the cloth are so fine that it is super tricky! I don't think she quite violates the nudity rules... barely. I'll make links if you need me to due to buttocks. Please feel free to give me critique!
This is Marshalla Sylvie from Freebooter Miniatures. In my Lost World she is Bonita, Half Pirate / Half Snake. I gave painted her base as if she was on driftwood in the water. Had fun with the Snake part and tried a little sheer on her blouse.

77175: Ghoul Queen
djizomdjinn posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI like painting sheer fabric, so the Ghoul Queen seemed like a mini to do more of that on.
It's been quite some time since I posted some minis here let alone a WIP. And joining the google hangout reminded me I really should ( thank you for that) . I apologize I switched jobs a few months ago and my life had been a little abnormal since. I also am kinda moved to Lancaster, Pa so if any fellow forum members are out this way, give me a shout I'd love to meet up to paint, game or just chat. Anyway on to the mini. I started Jahenna months ago to use as a test piece to try out a new mix for flesh. Since I finished up everything else on my desk, I figured I'd give her some more time, and quite possibly finish her who knows. Here are some photos that should be safe for the forums of how she looked when I picked her up a few days ago. (Please forgive my cell phone pics, I do not have my photo setup and light box with me yet during the week) So basically I was testing color mixes and hadn't even completely blended it but that's ok as most of it will be covered anyway for the cloth. I slowly started to block in some cloth and began my intermediate mixes to help make it look sheer. I also upped the highlights on her skin a bit. Here is how she looks now. These photos are linked as the front is considered nudity. The back http://wp.me/a26YPy-6r And front http://wp.me/a26YPy-6s Now I still have lots to do to make the cloth look right and blend better, as well as go back to her skin and fix that but I hope it's starting to read right. And hopefully with everyone's motivation possibly get her finished rather than leave her sit on the shelf of shame. This weekend I will attempt to take photos with my light box and camera as well. As always thanks everyone for all the awesomeness on these forums. And of course comments, critiques or just general rambling always welcome.
Dark Sword Muse Euterpe "Spring of Music"
Marsya posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI really love the Stephanie Law line from Dark Sword Miniatures and Euterpe may be my favorite from the Kickstarter. She was among the first three I prepped and after ReaperCon I started to put some paint on her. I did post a couple pictures in the WIP group thread for the Stephanie Law pieces, but wanted to be careful as I planned on taking her to Gen Con and their rules ask that you do not post finished pictures prior to the show. Her foxy friends were already seen in this thread http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62924-dark-sword-standing-kirin-and-a-few-foxes/ prior to basing of course. Without further ado here are my best photos I could manage. I spoke with DixonGrfx at ReaperCon about Euterpe and was toying with the idea of painting her with sheer cloth, I am glad I decided to go ahead and try more sheer as I feel it worked much better the second time around and worked well on her. Her base was custom built on a wooden block that I took a hacksaw to the corner and added modeling paste, cork, putty and dental plaster rocks. Overall I am quite happy with how this piece turned out and I look forward to painting up a few more muses. Comments and Critiques always welcomed.
77086: Townsfolk: Strumpet
terminalmancer posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingA fellow player in a Reign of Winter game has been "tooling around"* with an unpainted strumpet miniature. I offered to paint it if she told me what she should look like, and so I was given an unpainted Bones mini and a quick watercolor sketch to work off of. This is the result, after a couple hours of work! Overall, I'm pretty happy with her! She is not great, but I'm improving. This is also some of my better work on hair, ever. That Jessica Rich DVD from the kickstarter is starting to pay off. However, I still did just a quick paint up (probably 2 hours...) and the quality needs to be higher. Things I know did not go as planned: The blending on the dress was incredibly subtle--not sure what I was thinking here, exactly, but the contrast should be way higher. The blending on the hair highlights looked so much better before it dried. Oops. So mental note: esp. for a display piece, let it dry and then really check it out before you seal it. The transitions are way too abrupt as it stands. General smoothness of blending everywhere could be improved. Still on broccoli base. Sad. Any additional C&C? Beyond the paint scheme, I suppose, since I'm working with a player's desired colors, anyway. * as the kids would say it ** ** back in the 50s, maybe... Note: this is a repost! It looks like three posts, two of which I finished writing, all ended up with the same post ID, which caused all sorts of mayhem. Attachments only worked on one of these posts at a time and it looks like all of the tags got thrown together. This should fix the problem...
50188 Sleeping Beauty "Waiting for prince charming"
Marsya posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingAlright so I finally made time to take some photos of my beauty. I must give a big shout out to all the forum members who helped me even those who helped cheer me on in the WIP thread. Thank you all. The sheer fabric was a tough one for me and I think she looks a bit better in hand than the photos but alas that is typically the case. Here is the link to the WIP with some photos that show the sheer effect a bit better for anyone who may have missed it.http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60313-marsyas-first-attempt-at-sheer-cloth-50188-sleeping-beauty-warning-lots-of-pics/?hl=%2Bsleeping+%2Bbeauty And here are a few pictures of the finished piece with a few of Reapers Critters as well. I plan to bring her to ReaperCon even if just to show Rhonda Bender as her class at Gen Con inspired me to attempt the sheer cloth, and of course for her critiques. You can kinda see the hedgehog I hid on her base in this shot but only his snout. Once again Thank you all for your input and help and I look forward to meeting some of you in just a few days.
The title says it all I decided to try sheer cloth. I have wanted to try some since I took Rhonda's class for Painting Sheer cloth at Gen Con two years ago, but haven't felt brave enough to actually do it. Well if I want to get better I have to try more things, so here we go. Since this is new to me I figured I would post a WIP for advice and encouragement. Not to mention if I completely mess it up (which I likely will) maybe someone can learn from my mistakes. I already had Sleeping Beauty primed and ready to go I managed to prep her back in January. So last night I painted up her flesh. While my flesh tones were still in the palette I blocked in her sheet with flesh. Here are the photos which since it isn't actually showing any naughty bits I hope they are ok to post. So tonight I grabbed her and glass of wine, and took a photo in true Dontfear fashion. Then onto painting some cloth color. Since I used Burgundy Wine for her skin shadow I felt it would work for her cloth as well and Auberon's Dark Sword Sorceress inspired me to use purple. I mixed in a touch of pale violet and a tiny bit of linen white for the base coat and then took to blocking it in. At this point I googled purple sheer lingerie to get a feel for how purple looks against the skin and took my basecoat and mixed it with fair skin. With a fairly thinned down paint I used this to cover the skin parts to make it look as if a layer of fabric was over it. After this step it figured I better try to blend my mess so I mixed a few steps in between and also a higher step with linen white added to try to bring out the flesh parts a bit more. Here is as far as I got with her tonight. She needs more blending around the flesh parts then I am hoping working shadows and highlights onto the purple will help convey the look of sheer as I am worried now the cloth just looks highlighted rather than sheer. Thanks all for reading and hopefully helping me on this journey of sheer cloth.
