I'm trying to step out a bit, and I felt like doing something with big eyes would be a welcome break! I'd like to enter something in the Chibi contest at ReaperCon, although looking through last years entries leaves no illusions about winning anything - there were some absolutely jaw dropping figures in there. Anyways, I've been trying to apply more of the lessons from Anne Foersters tips, and I think it's helping my blending considerably. I still can't decide how much lighter to go with the hair, it's just at first level, and I'm toying with pushing it up to something like a snow shadow. Anyways, I'd love to hear comments, criticisms, suggestions on color palette and the like!
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 as in the photos. #121 Galladon: from the Smallworld Heroes Chibi subset in the Bones 4 Core set: #121 Galladon from the Small World Heroes subset in the Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Gene Van Horne (?)
