Dorva, Female Dark Elf, #03004, Sculpted by: Werner Klocke

Here is my latest. I had this one based and primed sitting on my table since spring of last year and just now got around to painting her. I tried a few color schemes before settling on this one. The photos were taken prior to adding a few brighter highlights to her skin, but other than that, this is pretty much how she looks finished. This was one of the toughest sculpts I have painted for some reason, but I am happy with the end results. This figure proves that I still have some areas of blending technique that I need to master. All in all though, not a bad miniature for one that is going for sale on eBay.

 

Some of you all might think it strange that I really do not collect or display my own miniatures, but either sell them all on eBay, paint them for commission, give them as gifts or painted for the forum exchanges. The only miniatures I have on my display shelf are ones received in exchanges form other Reaper members. Since I do not game anymore and I already have collected way too much stuff over the years, I figure that I have the photos for memories or a portfolio, so I am good.

 

C&C welcome.

Okay, So it doesn't rhyme but it's still very apropos.

EDIT: But actually, I love your treatment of this mini, and the freehand on her loincloth thing is amazing.

Thanks everyone for comments. I really was not please with he photos, but since she was an eBay piece I decided not to retake them.

 

@MonkeySloth - Good thing you mentioned it. I did not know until just now there was a new contest going on. I am not sure Dorva here is worthy, but we will see what I can come up with by the deadline.

 

@Mercius - I miss having you around more often, buddy. I also miss seeing your work. Hope you start showing off some more stuff soon.

      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.

      Presenting the Gladiator, part of the Echoes Of Death series from Kingdom Death.
       
      Another one rescued from the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things. My Kingdom Death minis always turn out fairly hit or miss, and I think this one falls a bit on the miss side, but I like the job I did on her shield.
      Just wish they'd stop with the dramatic dust clouds, can never figure out how to paint them!

      Presenting Lysette, a mage from the Bones USA line by Reaper.
       
      Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things.
      Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand.

      On her I wanted to see how far I could lighten my drow skin with it still looking like a drow, don't know if I succeeded or not. I do know I picked the wrong model think yea alot of skin showing but after I did the skin and took a look at the armor I was at a complete lost on how to proceed.
