Or spry under coat black, then use a white spry to spray down onto model and slightly to the sides to leave the recesses black. I saw this done to great effect recently.

 

I had not seen this lining technique before. I think I like it......

Base coating the leather and skin:

Edit: one thing I hope this helps is the back of the mini. Dearth of shots back there, lots of stuff. I could probably see that cylinder between his bedroll and scabbards as a vial, but I'm going with scroll case. Kind of stumped on the case-looking thing between the bedroll and his hair, so it's leather!

I'll start off with this statement: NMM is HARD.

Apologies for the blurry pics as always, autofocus doesn't like these WIP pics. I usually take a few so one might come out in focus...

 

So there's the steel and gold NMM. Easily the most difficult technique I've tried, purely from a theoretical standpoint. I'm happy with a few spots (the gold bracers). For something of this level of complexity, I wish the instructions had three WIP pics of each area to be painted as well as a couple larger front/back shots of the completed minis. I was winging it for most of the mini with very little idea of what I was supposed to be doing.

      I've been doing a lot of painting over the last few months but very little posting.  I'll probably do some image dumps at some point, I do like searching for other people's versions of the minis and I'm sure others would like to see mine.
      Anyway, when I went through my collection of painted minis appropriate for PCs, I saw very few armored women.  I did two from Bones III, and Anduriel from a Lean-to-Paint kit - he's almost certainly supposed to be male but honestly you put a person in that much armor and they're pretty androgynous.  🙂
      I did some minor modifications to Skara - if you're wearing armor no-one should ever see your cleavage (you keep your heart there!) and I suppose she may have been wearing a dress, but she had *&^! spaulders so I sculpted her a breastplate and gave her more-or-less-full armor.  She was wearing an elbow cop on her sword arm, but not her other, so I gave her one.  I also added a few more thigh plates to cover up a bare leg.  Not terrible, though a bit rough - I should probably have built the breastplate out more to make it look more angular.  Sculpting is hard!  As far as painting goes, I gave her a fairly normal skin-tone but blue hair.  I'm quite pleased with how the hair looks.
       
      Amusingly enough, when I started painting Mara I thought she had an angel on her shield.  I guess not. 🙂

      Some questions about the Bones 5 Learn To Paint Kit:
       
      1. The box says the figures in it are Bones, but those figures were all Bones Black in the Kickstarter. So is that a typo?
       
      2. Is there any new information in here that wasn’t in the previous kits or is it just a repeat of those lessons?
       
      Thanks.

      Just finished both learn to paint kits. First minis I've ever painted, pretty stoked how they turned out. I did take a couple experimental liberties just to see what happened. What do you guys think?

      I've had these pics on my camera for a few days, and keep forgetting to upload them...  Keep getting distracted by other projects, but nothing wrong with that I say...  ^_^;;;;;  These photos were taken using my previous way of doing things, and I definitely prefer the "newer" way even if it means a bit more work up front, but there's less editing, and my kit lens is a LOT easier to work with for such up close pictures.  Kind of can't wait to get that Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro that's on my wishlist, but right now it's a debate between miniature supplies and camera gear, and the camera gear isn't currently on sale, plus we really could use a wider selection of paints in the house, so..... 
       
      Ingrid was definitely an....  Interesting challenge to paint, to say the least.  She has a great deal of smaller details to her, aaaaaand she's pint shot glass sized, which adds to things.  Interestingly enough, the biggest issue I kept running into was with her gloves, boots, and especially belt.  Cloak also gave some issues, even having me somewhat frustrated at first that my initial shadow layer looked a LOT like vertical red and black stripes, I kept it as it was, and added additional layers on, which seems to have partially corrected itself, but looking at the photos, at the right angles it... Still kind of shows that way.  Oh well, we learn as we go, right?
       
      This was also the first mini that I attempted something resembling eyes, and I did my best to have it look like she was looking right at the gem itself.  It took a few tries, but I managed to get some sort of hazel-brown eye going, although with just the one colour hazel eyes have (not the brown-green mix).

      Couldn't resist the silly-ish title - it was originally going to be "Novice Painter, versus LTPK:Core!" but I changed it a touch at the end..  Bonus points if you read that as the Innkeeper from Hearthstone. :P 
       
      While I have painted miniatures in the past, I've first and foremost never shown such results to anyone, and secondly went in blindly with those ones, and while I was happy with them at the time, I wanted to improve.  Other things in life took over for a while, and then finally I said that's it, I'm either going to FINALLY paint my primered army of doom that was at Doom In June 2005 or I'm going to sell the minis I've had sitting in boxes for over a decade.  So glad I found out about the Learn to Paint Kits, because that pretty much solidified that decision right then and there :P
       
      Anyways!  At some point we were all at this stage, and while looking over the pictures I can see a number of things I can improve on (*cough* like my up close photography skills *cough*), but for most things...  I'm happy with them.  Especially the chain mail on the Orc Marauder.  I just might have to retake some of these photos, because I realize looking at them that, uhm, first and foremost f1.7 blurs half the model, and secondly, I didn't get a shot of the backside of the Marauder's Shield, which I was also happy about.  Oops.
       
      But before I ramble on for three pages......!
       

       

       

       
       
      Drybrushing feels sooooo weird, but it was starting to click once I got to Magnu, even if I wound up overdoing it in a few areas and it so wasn't a dry effect anymore.  But that's life, we learn from our actions!
