I am trying get the -in my opinion- less enjoyable player character-type minis out of the way, which will let me do the more fun monster minis when finishing up the core set, hopefully letting me keep up the motivation to actually get the entire set done as I have wowed to do. #51 Belle the serving wench 25mm base.
Trying my hand at speed painting. This was not done in one sitting, but total time was about 2.5 hours, which is less than half the time it normally takes me to paint a thing. Not perfect, but pretty darn good (for me, anyway) for the time spent. Here is the Wench: Didn’t plan anything out beforehand; color selection was spur of the moment. Her dress is Royal Purple with Nightmare Black shadow, and some BCA Pink mixed in for highlights. Top and apron are Lantern Yellow up through Candlelight Yellow. Tanned Skin triad was used for her flesh, and various leather colors for her hair and accessorizing accessories. Highlights didn’t really work out around her backside, but there was no time to fret over it. And you can’t really tell from the awful photo, but I finally managed to paint a decent eye. And forgot eyebrows. Whoops. C&C welcome.
This lovely lady was a lot more fun to paint than I'd expected, and I let myself slow down a bit and really experiment with improving my shading and highlighting. I'm super happy with how her dress and apron turned out! Her face...not so much. I'll explain why below the pictures. Oh, and when I was trying to figure out what color to make her hair, even though I think brown would have looked better, I decided I couldn't resist making her a redhead. Yay pictures! I'd put the basecoat on her skin and was about to start highlighting when my right eyelid starting twitching pretty badly. It would go for awhile, then stop, then go for a bit, then stop again, etc. It seriously messed with my ability to focus on close-up work, so I decided to just make a stab at her mouth and leave the rest alone. I'm not super happy with how it turned out, but at least I didn't end up with a Joker-faced bar maid in the end (she was looking kinda scary for awhile, lol). I also didn't get a chance to reduce the lining around her eyes; it's pretty heavy right now. Once I get back to my painting desk on Sunday, I'll tidy it up, highlight her skin, and fix a few little fiddly bits (such as the rag in her pocket that I totally forgot about, and adding shine dots to her eyes). I'm actually really wishing I'd taken the time to remove the mold lines from her; I didn't originally expect her to be more than a 1-2 hour quick paint job. Lesson learned!

Naptime's over! Lady McGee is kind enough to bring over the beeeeeeeeest hot chocolate in the land! (you probably thought I was going to say beer, didn't you? ) Hot chocolate with whipped cream on top is one of my favorite winter treats! Peter spider isn't interested, though. This is the figure I painted for Day 10 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge. Link to index thread: http://forum.reaperm...ay-in-november/ Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
