  1. Hello all you Reaper people! So, Bones V will be hopefully arriving in the next few months, and one thing I told myself was that before I got my package, I wanted to finish the smaller Yephima sculpt before the new and larger Yephima shows up at my door. I really love both versions, and I just wish this Yephima would be available in metal. I tried painting her already years ago, started even a WIP in the forum, which I'd have to hunt down. My original thought was make her a very, dark dusky color and blonde hair with pinks and oranges, but at one point my inspiration w
  2. I'm trying to improve my flesh tones, and for some reason it helps me to do it with inhuman tones to get the technique down before moving to more realistic stuff. I'm not quite sure how it's going so far. If nothing else, Yephima's proving that I need to practice some blending and feathering. Still need to highlight the Wereboar. I love the muscularity of this guy, he was fun to wash!
  3. Howdy, She's from Cloud Nine... Kev! P.S. She's not big boned, she's fluffy! P.P.S the tags are acting weird... limit 4, no caps? P.P.P.S It's cotton ball material on the base
  4. I'm participating in the Thanksgiving paint challenge. Here's my first figure. I really wanted to do better with the gems and her crown. There's a large seam line through her hair from side to side. I thought I should get some 22 gauge copper wire and create a circlet for her to hide it. The white fur on the edge of her armor isn't wonderful either. So much to learn! I've run out of steam on the figure so that will have to wait for later. Thanks for looking 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant
  5. I'm painting this mini myself, and was wondering if you had any tips for the finer areas like the garter & eyes.. Or (and just as importantly) how to correct a mistake like her eye.. Just paint over, or do you remove & repaint? Todd
  6. I'm super in love with this mini. It was so much fun to work on. And I'm VERY happy with how the eyes turned out because that's something I struggle with a lot. The lighting here is not great, I have misplaced the power cord to my light box, and somethings are off color from what it should be.
  7. So I'm going to try to keep up with a new WIP. I started painting Yephima yesterday and I hope to finish her by the end of the month. Here is my progress so far: I first put down a thin layer blue liner and then based her skin in MSP Ashen Blue and her armor and hair pieces are MSP Ancient Bronze. I missed a couple of bits of armor that I need to go back and do. I haven't yet decided what other colors I want to do on the rest of her. I'll normally plan this out ahead of time but when I went to my notebook nothing was written down on her page. Oops. Any suggestions are greatly appr
  8. I had a lot of fun with this, but I think she looks more like a storm giant, so I painted her how I thought she would look. This is a better photo pair than the last Reaper quarterly contest (which I photographed and took a not-as-good photo of her). Her basing is made of the Happy Seppuku "Splintered Wood" stamp, the sand/asphalt stamp, and a resin railroad rock I cast myself to look as if it were "un polished marble." The pink/purple armor was a decision by my daughter, who wants everything to be pink and/or purple. As always, C&C welcome!
  9. Yephima, painted up as some sort of ice giant instead. Second try with the "snow" (just did one test base first) so it's a little rough. It migrated up the silver paint, unfortunately, but I'm actually okay with how it looks like it's sticking to all the exposed metal.
  10. So looking around the forums and I found the Year of the Giant painting contest. Since I was in an inspired painting mood I decided to break out Yephima and the male storm giant. I went and looked at alot of the other submitted giants in show-off, WIP, and Inspiration gallery. I was really inspired by Pragma's Storm Giant, especially the lava cracks on the shoulder. I decided to try and go the literal 'storm' giant route and went looking at photos of lighting strikes. I saw lots of blues, reds, purples, and whites, then I saw this one, I love the blue/green-teal highlighting the greys of th
  11. Ok my daughter has painted a few things since Reapercon and receiving her Vampire box from someone (who I don't think is on the forums yet or does not visit much) and her paints from @Harrek. The first one she chose out of all the minis in the Vampire box was 77137: Sarcophagus: Next she chose a mini that she had painted from my set 2 years ago. 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant: Can you guess which one was from 2 years ago? Today she painted 77067: Virina, Female Demon and wanted to base her so I got out the supplies received at Reapercon. I did t
  12. 8th times the charm, right? (my pictures actually attached facing the right direction after about an hour of work. Blah!) So, last night at 8pm I decided to start a WIP on Yephima, because I love her. Aaand, I finished her a little less than an hour ago. So, I'm just gonna show her off, and do the wip on my blog at some point when my computer screen isn't full of blue. Alright, I got sick of seeing blue skin. They're beautiful but I was tired of it. So I decided, if girls can cosplay as lady loki and whatnot, I could make a female Neptune.(Edit:duh!) . I tried some new things, and I think sh
  13. Continuing to post from my latest latest photo session, here's the unnamed male storm giant and Yephima. Both loaded up on NMM, and a fun attempt at an aqua glassy armor on Yephima. The storm giant's face has a wicked moldline I don't think I've ever seen before until I got this picture linked up and previewed. I didn't notice it while painting, nor have I noticed it when handling it later... oh well. Next time I'll get them all. I promise. Maybe.
  14. Yephima was one giant experiment for me. Not only did I have a new skin recipe to try out, I ended up with a new hair recipe, blued TMM steel, learned a bit about TMM gold, practiced blending, frosted her then damaged the varnish on her arm and got to practice defrosting and repair all at the same time. Oh, and I decided to see if cotton would sell as clouds. For the curious, most of these trials can be found right here, in our own WIP section. To start, the full rotation: Just in case the clouds didn't work, I took a shot before I started to make them. And finally, the acti
  15. Okay, just because it's kind of fun to record this kind of stuff, plus if I know I'm posting progress, I actually have to make some progress, I'm going to start up a new WIP. With this one, it's going to be a chunk of figures so it will probably last forever, but I've really got no hurry, so we'll see how this all goes. So I've got nine figures I'm going to put on this WIP, eight Ral Partha figures, and Yephima, my only and favorite Bones figure, so I'll also give my general impressions perhaps with some base of experience behind me, even though not too much for just as single figure.
  16. Here, for your amusement is my very first WIP thread. The plan here is to show 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant having just put down a dwarf intruder. I figure she needs something to justify that smug look on her face. I plan to pose her with her victim (Stonehaven's Unconscious Dwarf SHD20) underneath that massive club of hers. In order to do this, I will need to cut her club away from the rest of the model. The leaves me with two surfaces (one on the club and one on the loincloth) with no detail. The loincloth surface isn't a big deal; I'll simply remove a small prot
  17. Yephima is one of my favourite new sculpts from the KS1 set so I decided I would make her my second bones paint. First I had to fix her left foot though - the last three toes and part of the left side were simply missing, so I used some liquid green stuff to create some new toes. You can see the result here. There was also a weird, sinuous, flash mark along the ground between her left foot and the edge of her skirt where one side of the ground was a little higher than the other so I couldn't really file it off. Since I was mucking around with the liquid green stuff in the area anyway I
  18. So for two straight Kickstarters I've shown the restrain necessary and didn't end up getting any Bones and I'm still reasonably okay with that because I like metal, I won't lie and I really appreciate the detail metal provides. But those dastardly Reaper people put out a few that couldn't be gotten in metal, like Yephima, so I ordered one from my hobby store and sooner or later, actually probably later or sooner, I'd like to think about painting her up. Here's my dilemma: after giving her a sudsy bath and letting her dry, I think I really would like to prime her, even though everybody says
  19. Figured that since I have been lurking so long then I might as well post my most recent learning experiment. I started painting miniatures in September at Dragon*Con and have sense fallen in love with it. I'm still learning a lot of techniques to see what works best for me and what just doesn't work at all....example: I'm terrible at glazing. @[email protected] That's my first bit of work, not sure if its a Reaper miniature though, but sense then I have achieved this sort of quality. She's only half way finished but so far I think she's pretty good. I can tell where I have improved b
