  1. I'll call this one done as well, though I may touch up a few areas. I love this sculpt. It's so full of life and happiness. I just had to rain on the parade... I added some faint OSL from the spirit on the surroundings. At the last minute I decided to go ahead and use the flower. My WIP is here. Enjoy! C&C always welcome! See y'all at Reapercon!!!
  2. Okie dokie, I have a new idea! See, I love the SL Dark Sword sculpt The Lovers. It's just so sweet. Normally when I look at a sculpt I try to accentuate whatever emotion I imagine the artist trying to evoke and build on that with my paint choice, basing and composition. This one reminds me of a wedding. I get all teary-eyed just thinking about the happiness. Lately though, I'm in the process of killing off my main protagonist in a story I'm writing. Don't hate me. It's necessary to drive the character arcs for my 3 main supporting characters. Plus, I feel like a story always means more when great sacrifice is involved. So I've got this sad ending ticking in the back of my brain. While pacifying my fitbit the other day I was struck by a bolt of figurative lighting! Why not use the above sculpt for a bittersweet story of eternal love. Meaning, I'll paint up the male as a spirit and the woman at the funeral remembering him. Yeah, I know. Depressing. Sigh. But, I betcha no one else has taken this tack, so at the very least it will be unique, the complete opposite of what the artist intended and it'll give me an excuse to play with Hard Colors. Yeah. That's when it hit me. White. Black. Sigh. I took the opportunity to try some experimentation while waiting for the primer to dry. I grabbed a bunch of colors I thought of as potentially working well to depict a spirit, knowing I'd need to use something fairly warm in the woman's palette to offset. I figured the warm white in the last pic wouldn't work, but I'd go ahead and paint up a bones victim in case I needed it another time. So, here's the result of my puttering. It might as well be useful: Now, before I painted them up, I'd have picked the green as being the most spirit-like and spooky. Plus I could go pink fleshy on my lady and get some red-green plus warm-cool contrast (which is usually a win-win.) As it turns out though, I like the blue example best. Hooray for experimentation! I'll add that these are very simple, done in about an hour overall (stupid paint-drying time) and usually with white it needs to be a bit more complex to look right. Remember that white is essentially a color of pure reflection. it's only highlights and shadows come from its surroundings. That's why I painted myself a bit of intense color around each of the "white" cloaks- it gives my a "reflection" to paint into the cloak. Normally, reflections are more complex, so it wouldn't be so one-note or flat. I'd use other colors in the mini or the base to add some depth. Then I chose my other colors: I took a pic because lately I'm leaving a lot of time in between painting sessions, so I'll forget otherwise. hah! So, base coating, just to make sure I like it: And painting! I forget sometimes to take in progress. Took about 3 hours or so. I wanted to tear the opposite head of the one I was working on at least twice to get to a corner. Sigh. worked less on the back, but here it is: Here's a closeup: the hair is coming along nicely! I'll try to get back to it soon! I'll be making a little vignette using the bones sarcophagus and some walls with fancy gothic-type windows. the floor will be a simple mosaic and I want to put some swirlies coming from the sarcophagus to the man. I'll try to figure out how much blue OSL to put on the walls and on the woman without it being too forceful and overwhelming her colors.
  3. I'm looking for a photo of a vignette that was made with Darksword's miniature "The Lovers". Here is the stock photo from their site, for reference. http://www.darkswordminiatures.com/shop/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/330x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/7/6/7617_f1_p.jpg What I am looking for is a vignette made using this model, with a wall/archway modeled in the background, and some garden stuff around it (IIRC). I saw it on Facebook last year and now cannot find it. It is masterfully painted. Unfortunately I don't know who did it. I cannot believe there aren't thousands of copies of it floating around on mini painting sites for people to goggle over. If you have seen this image and can point me to it, I would be very happy.
