  1. Drys Dryad 77265 Did a paint Test here Images removed with forum complience
  2. Question, can a highlighter be used for miniatures? Short answer: NO Long answer: It rubs off when dry, even if mixed with mod-poge it rubs off. And even if it did not, when it dries it turns to normal light yellow and loses its hilighternessity. Fluor paints I have tried not only look better in normal light, but glow in that blue ultraviolet light as well. Finished model Images removed with forum complience
  3. Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year. He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.
  4. Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia! So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do. I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal. So here she is: and here is a close up of her eyes. Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly. From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology. I never had these issues back in the eighties. Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres. This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction. So back to the painting table! Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!
  5. So I’ve been painting for about a year, she is by far the best I’ve ever done and the 1st time I’ve felt confident enough to share. This is also the 1st base I’ve ever done. I welcome constructive criticism.
  6. So here is the latest finished mini. What I originally wanted was for her to have a pale-wood colour to her skin, as if she was the inside wood of the tree coming out through the bark. So I basically wanted her to look like bare lumber. Unfortunately she turned out looking like nicely tanned human skin and I didn't want her to look like a naked human lady hanging out in a tree. So then I tried to paint her a little darker and paint some wood grain on her but then she looked a little like a tiger. So instead of getting hung up on her and stalling out I decided to paint her flesh green and move on. So I like how she turned out and on this mini I did some highlighting instead of calling her finished after the Strong Tone wash because someone called me out on it recently. So this one is for you, @Sanael https://imgur.com/a/hpJ8P4x
  7. Warnings first, this image is linked for nudity. I would like to ask for advice on this mini. I might be finished or I might have to go back and paint her all over again. I wanted her to look like bare wood, like raw lumber because she is part of the tree. I wanted it to look kind of like she was the inside wood of the tree coming out through the bark but I think she ended up looking a little like regular skin. So my question is does she look okay or should I paint her green instead to keep her from looking human? Thanks for any advice you can offer. Please also be advised, it isn't the best image but it gets the idea across. https://imgur.com/a/5CNeff6
  8. Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro: which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?" Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady, and started slapping green stuff on. Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to the finished product. Both she and the lariat-wielding saguaro vaquero will have blunt, stubby feet and arms with little muscle or joint definition, both because that's how saguaros do and because I am...not a professional sculptor by a long chalk. C&C welcome; this is the rough draft of the first draft of each of them and I'll be doing a lot of trimming and repositioning, no doubt.
  9. Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out: Front Back Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad). Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift. I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks. All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.
  10. Now the first thing I might need to explain is what the Emerald Nightmare is, and why it's red instead of green! The Emerald Nightmare is a place from the game World of Warcraft, and it's a corrupted version of the wonderful lush Emerald Dream. The Nightmare is shades of grey and black with orange, red and pink, filled with twisted trees, mangled dryads and chtulhu-esque horrors. In fact, I think the loading screen to the Emerald Nightmare gives a nice impression: The models I painted in this style are a Chthon, a Dryad and a Treeman! All three of them together. Dryad is nude. The Dryad is nude. Back of the dryad, still nude.
  11. And here is 60067, Nyrissa. At long last. The base is from Micro Arts Studio. There's a WIP thread. I was trying to follow the reference art for this important Kingmaker NPC fairly closely. It turned out okay, although I just this second realized that her feet are supposed to be orange like her hands. Blast. Well, I don't think they're getting fixed now, because I am so done with this mini. The gradients. THE GRADIENTS. DEAR GOD, THE GRADIENTS! It turned out okay, but I think this takes my personal award for Most Annoying Mini. It just felt like a slog to get through it.
  12. I'm working on 60067 Nyrissa. She's a major NPC in the Kingmaker adventure path from Paizo. I'm trying to follow the reference art from the cover of the AP pretty closely, though I've checked other threads on the forums for inspiration too. So far I've got a base: The base is from Micro Arts Studio. I gouged a slot in it for the tab at the base of her wings. It's coming along okay, but it's awfully muted. It needs more contrast -- particularly brighter highlights. I've base coated her wings. The wings are 3:3:1 Pine Green/Linen White/Pale Saffron. The vines are in Formula P3 Wurm Green, and the interior petals are your basic Fire Orange. It doesn't come through in the photography very well, but in person the blue in the main wings is a LOT more noticeable. I need to push it more towards the yellow end of the spectrum -- I want them to be the pale, nearly yellow green of fresh leaf growth, before it's had time to mature and darken. I don't quite know what I'm going to do about that. I don't really have any pale green paints -- I generally like dark greens, and have a wide selection of those. I may need to mix something custom. The interior petals are off to a good start, but need to shift red in the deepest parts, and yellow at the edges. I'm less worried about those. I haven't even primed her body yet. I'm not quite sure how to handle it, frankly. It's a lovely sculpt, but difficult to work with. She has a little nubbin between her shoulder blades that fits into the hole you can see in her wings up above, leaving her hovering mid-air. Literally every other part of the mini needs to be painted -- there's no place to hold the part while I'm working. Ordinarily I stick the figures to bottle caps with poster putty (as with the base, above), and I just got that fancy Rathcore mini holder thing that I'm using for her wings. But neither of those will work, because any part of the mini I stick in putty isn't available for painting, and if I stick the nubbin into the cork, that leaves her back inaccessible. Plus I worry that the pressure of the cork might deform the nubbin and cause it not to fit its matching hole properly. So I may need to paint her body in two different phases, first her torso/arms/head, and then her legs. I'll take notes on painting procedures as I go so I can match them on the second half.
  13. One of my players bought this figure to represent her sylvan druid. She wanted her painted like a Sylvari from Guild Wars 2. I used her description from her backstory to determine her skin, hair, and eye colors. She said she thought Lily would wear "natural" colored clothing. I initially thought greens with some purples (my favorite colors) but with her hair being bright green as requested, I didn't think green leaves would show up in her hair. I decided to go with autumn leaves for her hair and wrists. When deciding on how to do her clothes, I thought of doing them like an autumn leaf. Her corset/vest and her sandals were painted bootstrap brown but when I used brown ink over it, it made it look like red leather. I really liked how it turned out a lot! I am so bad about finishing painting a figure and wanting to move on to painting the next. I have to make myself base things. A local guy here was advertising some leaf punches so I bought some from him to create leaves for the base. I painted them up in autumn colors and added them to the base. I painted a little Monarch butterfly and put it on her raised hand. The only thing I am not totally happy with is the staff/spear/whatever it is. I want to paint this figure again for myself and if/when I do, I will be modifying it and getting rid of the staff. She's a little shiny because I haven't sprayed her with Dulcote yet. C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
  14. I hope the leaves are covering enough. I tried to make her look like she's made of wood anyway.
  15. This past week I painted the Drys, Dryad, figure from the Bones II, Sylvan Creatures set. Since I was in kind of a Frostgrave frame of mind when I was thinking about painting her, I decided I would try to paint her up in winter colors, like a dryad that has been unexpectedly awoken from her Winter sleep, and is not happy about it.

  16. Microbust for the Jab/Feb 2017 painting challenge. Had a lot of fun with this. I think the pose lends itself very well to the microbust concept. Since I chopped off her legs, the bigger challenge was how to base. Decided to just keep it on the cork holder. I was inspired by the studio paint job. I hope I did it justice.
  17. Another grouping of minis from the batch that suffered sealant malfunction, comes a grouping of ladies from the Sunkissed Vale, Dryads/Nymphs/Warrior Queens of the fungal persuasion. All are from Ganesha Games "Fightin' Fungi" line for "Song of Blades and Heroes" The Queen herself: An Amazon Fungus: The Mitkityad Forest Nymph: The entire growth: And a very confused Goblin, pulling rank for this and the Gobblydegook (Hey, it came in the same set!)
  18. My first miniature done with airbrush, so it's more testing than anything else. Hope you will enjoy it. I still have to finish the base a bit, with some fallen leaves. And because of the tree nudity, I'm posting only the link. Any C&C's are more than welcome. http://pipek.drd.sweb.cz/dryada.jpg Pampala
  19. This year I got Leopardpixie as my Secret Sophie partner and part of what she put down for inspiration was high fantasy with vibrant colors. I had just seen Nyrissa the dryad queen in the Reaper store and thought that she would be perfect. I really wanted to play with color so I went with bright green and purple. In all, I am very happy with how it turned out.
  20. Here's the Dryad and Pixie for Cal's Pathfinder game. Thanks for looking! 14552: Sylph Julie Guthrie 14479: Drys, Elven Dryad Werner Klocke
  21. With my collection being rather "large" these days, I've been trying to knock out tabletop quality work, and have shown a few here lately. Was time to slow down and enjoy the process more. I wouldn't say these are contest level, but hopefully better than tabletop! Anyone else find themselves speed painting far too often? (Shaman needs some basing still.) Mini numbers for those that might want to paint one of these themselves 02711 elf 14479 dryad 2805 shaman
  22. Okay I admit to being a bit proud. I decided with RCon going on to see if I could push my painting a bit more so I finally started to work on some shadows and also drybrushing. I finally am getting the hang of drybrushing! So happy now. She is linked due to the forum rules about nudity. So you are now warned these pictures contain nudity. Back Front Side
  23. Here's my second completed BONES 2 mini, the Dryad. I'll be picking her up in metal at some later date, this one's just not cutting it. Since I was on my way to [CLASSIFIED], and it's cherry blossom season over here, I decided to go with a Spring theme. The cherry blossoms were created using some clump foliage, sealed with super glue and painted. It's difficult to tell, but they're lavender, drybrushed in pink, then a light drybrush in white. It got really washed out in the photos. [Linked for Nudity] Front Side Back Side As always, C&C welcome!
  24. This is the DGS Games Dryad (100010) that I got in one of their Kickstarters. A fun, quick paint job.
