So, I've been painting for nearly a full year now. When I first started miniature painting, I didn't know what I wanted to get out of it besides some fun. Now, I'm thinking that I want to (eventually) try my hand at some light commission work, possibly. Who knows? Anyway, four months ago, I painted this 60036: Visbaronetess Delour Aulamaxa. I used this miniature for nmm gold practice, skin, makeup and facial painting practice only. The rest of the miniature--the dress and such--I didn't care as much about. I have already gotten comfortable painting cloth and such. I really wanted to focus on skin, makeup and nmm gold. Since, my nmm gold has progressed. But seeing as I haven't been here in nearly 8 months, and my camera is currently acting up, I'm using this as my one-year-anniversary-of-painting post. I went for a pale, powdery skin-tone--a 'made up,' fair-skinned, porcelain-esque look. Unfortunately, the harsh lighting in the picture (didn't use my light box at the time) drowns out a bit of the detail, as it IS very fair skin. For instance, there are some rosy tones in the chest area that are viewable from a distance, but are nearly entirely washed out in the close-up pictures. Also, the shadow tones I painted on the folds in her neck and around her eye makeup DO show up, but the shadow-tones in her cheeks and her cleavage are mostly washed out by the harsh lighting. In the FIRST picture, you can see the washed out shadow-tones a bit better. The cons of not having good photography skills. Unfortunately, these pictures were taken BEFORE I painted her eyebrows on. Anyways, please feel free to leave critiques, comments, questions--any input or opinions are welcomed, and help me greatly. I've only been painting for (almost) a year, but I DO want to do something with my painting (I don't think I'll ever try for anything more than commissions), so the more feedback, the better! Thank you!!
