60013 Merisiel, Iconic Elf Rogue (Pathfinder)

Like Xanesha the lamia matriarch (my last Show-Off), this is another Pathfinder figure previously released for Paizo under Crocodile Games and now rereleased by Reaper, so I wanted to provide a painted example.

 

Here's a link to the concept art: Merisiel at Pathfinder Wiki

 

I changed the face slightly, because I don't like painting female faces that have sculpted eyebrows. (You can compare my rendition to the image of the primed figure in the Gallery.) I cut away the eyebrows, allowing me to paint the eyebrows where I wanted, and I cut away part of the upper eyelids to give myself a rounder eye area overall to work with.

 

Merisiel's skin is very pink -- the base color is Porcelain Rose, and the shading includes Violet Red -- but her red leathers make it seem less so by comparison. The armor was also a new red for me: Mahogany Brown, plus a mix of Rust Brown and Carnage Red, highlighted with Rose Shadow.

 

Enjoy,

Derek

Oi Derek, quite well done and very true to the original art.

 

Sort of OT -ish I suppose..... You remove the eye brows to be able to paint them where you want them. I think you did a great job, but I wonder ( as I am NEVER satisfied by my own sculpted eye brows ) is it actually easier to paint them in than it is to paitn the sculpted features? I have wanted to just leave them off of my own female sculpts but I worry that people may find it too difficult to paint htem in rather than to paint on them.

Dang Derek! I think this is one of my favorite pieces now. You never cease to amaze me. I agree with you about the eye brows and of eyes in general. I wish that many female sculpts and even a few male Eleven sculpts did not have brows. I also like sculpts with a flatter/larger eye area to paint. Too many make it really tough on us non-professionals to create good eyes.

Looks wonderful. Just looking at it helps me become a better artist and painter, just imagine what watching you paint would do. ^^ your painting is simply amazing, and I love your pieces.

(I'm not a fanboy >.> <.< ok maybe I am)
