Thanks, all.

 

@fieldarchy: For straight lines, I have long-practiced hands, I turn the figure so I'm always painting vertically (easier for me to get straight lines up-and-down than side-to-side), and my brush lays down so thin a line that it doesn't matter if I wobble a bit -- as long as the first line is somewhere within the final desired line/bar/band, I can then widen the line to one side or the other, and then the result looks straight. :;):

[EDIT: Oops, I misread your question.]

 

@SIGIL: Tre', my man... um, yeah. Remember not to respond on the Forums right after you've been sculpting for 12 hours straight! ::P:

 

@Jubilee, chipchuck, et al.: I agree, variety among miniature physiques is good. I was just mentioning the point that I had heard. Good luck with your male "Kyra", chipchuck!

 

@LadyArgent: The grass is my regular non-clumped static grass, applied with Elmer's glue and then highlighted with some yellow-greens and paler yellows. It just happened to form especially nice tufts this time.

 

@Hot Lead: Thanks, Laszlo! Using the picture in the Pathfinder RPG Rulebook as my reference, I set the midtone as Ultramarine Blue, the shadows Deep Amethyst, and the highlights a mix of Pure White and Ultramarine Blue. But the same image as printed on the cover of the Pathfinder Adventure Path #4 has blues that are less violet, so I redid the upper values in True Blue and Sky Blue. I kept the highlights subtle (i.e. not very light) because I didn't want to interfere with the values in with the tan/yellow freehand. I had to darken the highlights on the blue sleeves after adding the freehand anyway, because the yellow didn't stand out enough.

what size brush do you use then?

I use a 2/0 W&N miniature series 7 and that gets most really tiny things but lines this fine . . . thinkin' not so much.

 

Sorry, Meg; I read your question and then answered it as if you had asked about "straight lines", not "fine lines".

My detail-brush is a Vallejo 0 that I've been using for almost two years, so it has lost a few bristles. It's now about the same size as a new Reaper 5/0.

Remember, if you can't paint a fine enough line, you can paint the line and then touch it up (make it narrower) from one or both sides: this process leaves a finer line than you could ever paint.

Derek,

 

Congratulations on your kubla best of show, well deserved!

 

She looks great, and I think the femininity is apparent, just not the fantasy buxom standard.

 

The even symetrical circular pattern is insane... really really really.... really.

that is a very fine brush. I guess I should try my Raphael 6/0 then ::): I usually do touch up my freehand after laying down the general pattern in the area I want it. That's how I got that shield on Isabeau as detailed as I did.
