Ruddy Leather is a little brighter than Mahogany, but not a lot. Its a reasonable base for leather but you really need a 50:50 mix with oiled leather as a minimum between it and oiled leather otherwise the jump is too big.

Got to work more on Laurana today. Base-coated her hair and painted her dress. Instead of doing the usual green top and blue bottom from the tutorial I thought I'd try and blend the two together with a peacock feather design:

Not sure how successful it was, it's been a learning experience at least.

darn artist types. Always with the practiced skills, and trained vision. You make us mere mortals feel lesser, somehow incomplete.

 

Which is just my way of saying. I like it a lot

She's beautiful, Cassu! The qualm I've always had about that sculpt was that I just couldn't picture the kind of spellcaster who would wear the outfit as it is generally painted. That I can see. And would cosplay. (Or, heck, I'd wear the dress to the beach as-is, or around if the side splits weren't quite so cheeky.)

Happy with the base, and had sooo much fun with that scroll and painted some non-metallic-metal on the gold thingies on her book and her belt buckle. Want to go back and do more with her tomorrow.

Augh yes those accursed mold lines! That one on her leg I completely missed when I was filing down the mini and it's been haunting me every time I look at it.

HAH your not perfect after all :upside: I feel your pain though it seems like you always find those when your halfway done.

      After wanting to learn how to paint minis for a long time, I was finally encouraged by some friends to take the leap. I found the Reaper 'Learn to Paint' kits and have found them an incredible resource for a new painter. While I know my work on these minis isn't perfect, I'm really happy with how they came out for the first models I've ever painted. Working through these has given me a lot of confidence, and I like it a lot more than I thought I would!
       
      I will say that I struggled more with the layering technique in the second kit than I did with the wash/dry brush technique from the first kit. I'm happy with the progress I've made, though.
       
      Now that I've finished all of the minis that came in the kits, my next project is to paint the minis in my Fury of Dracula game.
       
      I'm really happy to finally be exploring this side of the gaming hobby!

      I haven't seen this posted anywhere else on the boards and did not find anything by searching, but RealmSmith has posted an interview from GAMA on YouTube with Ron and Ed. If this has already been posted, please feel free to nuke this post with extreme prejudice. As YouTube is a commercial site, no link but searching RealmSmith and Reaper will get you there.
       
      Here are my notes:

      About to order reapers second learn to paint kit layer up. Who all had used it and can you post you results afterwards?

      Hi all,
       
      I have been helping out at a monthly "learn to paint miniatures" class at a local games cafe.  It has mostly been brand new painters who have never painted a miniature before.  We are using the Reaper Learn to Paint starter kits as well as the miniatures that were provided by Reaper.  We recently ran out of miniatures, so the cafe order a bunch of new ones.  I convinced them that we should get enough of one miniature such that everyone in the class can paint the same one at the same time.  That way people can follow along with an instructor who will show what they are doing on a screen.  We are getting a lot of repeat attendees now, so some of the participants are ready to do more than just slap a single thick coat of paint on the figure.  So far, they have been hard to convince to try any shading or highlighting.  Even washes and drybrushing are meeting resistance.  So, I am looking for advice. 
       
      The figure we are going to do this month is 77396: Olivia, Female Cleric by Werner Klocke.  I am going to paint one plain purple and show them Derek Schubert's monochrome class sample so they get a good sense of what highlighting/shading will do for their miniature.  Olivia Purple Monochrome
       
      What I am looking for is suggestions on a colour scheme that looks appealing, will be relatively simple to paint and where the effects of highlighting and shading can clearly be seen.  I am not good at picking out colour schemes, and I have already scoured the internet looking for ideas.  So, your ideas, please!  Any suggestions you have on colour or on conducting the class will be welcomed.
       
      Geoff

      This little fella came out alright I think. My first successful attempt at painting human eyes at this scale.
