Sanael Posted June 10, 2012 Share Posted June 10, 2012 Well, I'm back from a looooong hiatus. We finally got the paint room set up in a usable condition (Air Conditioning! Not a crap-filled junk room!), and over the past few months I've managed to paint a few things. First batch for show-off: a few minis for an upcoming campaign set in the "Firefly" 'verse. All of these were an interesting challenge to paint: I wanted everyone to look like part of a group without being "in uniform," so limited the palette pretty severely. Of course, since this was the first time I'd picked up a brush in years, I also wanted to make life as hard as possible; the palette involved black, red, and white. Please, comments/critiques, etc. are all welcome. Here's Sascha, who will take on the captainly duties of the crew. Very pleased with her coat, although my first attempt at OSL is somewhat...meh, especially as it's hard to tell the pylon behind her is glowing. Also sad the photo is washed-out on top, as I'm very proud of her hair. Next, Andrew Lane, the crew's doctor...more specifically, a veterinarian. He was a fun, simple sculpt to paint. I see in the photo I need more contrast between his boots and the ground. A Privateer Press mini, Gamak Redhammer, obviously pressed into service as a mechanic. Fairly pleased with his Blue Sun shirt. Displeased by the goopewter on the side of his face, but otherwise a very fun mini to paint. And two Wyrd minis not actually seeing play in this game. Perdita was a possible PC at one point, and I've always wanted to paint her in white (the reason for that part of the palette). Very happy with her skin. And quite happy with both ladies' hair. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
