Lady skin is super tough.

Is that a goblin-lady thing? The ladies that I know have rather soft skin.

 

 

 

You and your grotesque non-pustulant hooman women. Ick.

 

 

Hair turned out real nice, Malynor.

Base coat for clothing.

 

Not sure if it's been too long since I primed or not, but the paint didn't really want to stick to the primer, almost like watered down paint as a first coat on bones.

 

I got there eventually though:

Cloth Highlights

 

I didn't really notice a big difference on Tsuko, but for Laurana cloth seems so much easier than skin. Just got the fiddly bits left, I'm hoping they bring it all together, because so far, I'm not really keen on how she's turning out.

 

EDIT - I noticed on the picture that I didn't highlight her blue bracer - fixed that.

And here we are - almost finished, just need to figure out basing (I'm thinking grassy field?), and then post her in Show Off.

 

Fiddly bits weren't nearly as hard hard to do as I feared, the highlight from the instructions didn't really highlight that well. I'm absurdly happy with the scroll, broke out my 00 brush for that.

Close up of the scroll - it's not perfect this close, but better than I was expecting.

There was a lot (and I mean A LOT) of me thinking that I'd ruined her, and that she wasn't turning out right at all, but in the end it's not nearly as bad as I had feared. Definitely a good learning experience.

That's how I feel about every mini I paint. "Oh god this is turning out awful, I hate my painting, why can't I just...oh wait, this looks pretty cool!"

 

That scroll is indeed awesome, good idea painting the angular runic alphabet.

just adding a note so I can find this thread again. I have too many bones and paints already, to buy the LTPK, but the techniques look worth trying.

Personally I don't care for the bare midriff style on this mini But having said that you did a great job shading the abs.

Thanks, and I'm not on a fan of the bikini top either. I don't plan on using her for game, so I figured I'd give her more skin, since that's the reason I picked up the learn to paint kit. I picked up 2 and 4, I think I'll try to a few more figures before I start #4 though. Edited by Malynor

good plan imo 4 is a bit of a nightmare on details, I haven't started my dwarf yet (can't remember his name) and it's been months and I'm happily painting away.

Dain Deepaxe. Yeah, he's got a bunch of fiddly areas that seem to go on forever. But I found it a really good progression as I hadn't painted such a detailed mini before and having a bit of guidance from Anne was nice. And he's the first mini I painted that I actually liked.

      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.
