The Apprentice, or Holy Crap! He's showing something!

Recommended Posts

So, I painted this guy up and gave him to a party member for her birthday. I'm not entirely sure what she's going to do with him, but I had painted him up, and have now decided everyone gets a painted mini for their birthday... whether they want it or not! :D

 

So, without further ado, something I've painted! C&C welcome/requested.

 

-Dave

Cool miniature, he need a bigger base and a hole (a open gully with its cover lying aside) in front of him. :devil:

 

I like what you did.

I agree with Teskel, he's just begging to be dropped into something unsuspectingly! I do have to say that I love the paint job you did, the books are fun colors (which is why I love props, you can play a little bit with them) and his face is awesome! He looks so worried ::D:

Thanks! I may have to put together a custom base for her now.... Hmm.

 

I did have fun with the books (though the paper was weird for me). I got to use my ancient RPP Plains (a lovely mint color). The skin has a few shades of highlights, but it's hard to tell (in person or in picture, lol). The shirt was just several really thin Sapphire Blue washes, but I like it a lot.

 

As for the expression, that was totally unintentional... I hate eyes, maybe as much as Argentee.... I personally am very happy with my first ever eyebrows!

Bob Ross would be proud of your 'happy accident'. The expression with the eyes and brows is amazing!

I originally purchased him for a (fantasy/magical) library diorama/HA build I'm planning for the future. I'll have to get another one now. He will be joined by Jolie, and I'm not sure whom else yet....

 

@Dave: Nice name. Also, I considered it, but didn't,and now it's hers. I'm pretty sure I'll add titles or something next time, just gotta build up those calligraphy skills.

I was just thinking banana peel but a hole works well too :)

      While watching Ks Bones V, I was painting in front of my PC. 
      Here, the second one I painted.

      I took this idea directly from DMGInfo and put a couple small twists to it based on what my home game players might like. Plus, I think they make pretty cool props for a dungeon that might be a library or wizard tower or whatever. It's an experiment, so the execution is a little sloppy on some of them, but I learned a lot so if I ever decide to do a new set (which I likely will) I can take what I learned to make a much better finished product. 
       
      I started with craft sticks(popsicle sticks) cut into 1cm x 7mm pieces and used a cereal box for the book covers. On some of them, I cut up bits of the cereal box to add dimension. Superglue to keep it all together. 

       

       

       

       
      In hindsight the cereal box I used was pretty cheap and wanted to warp and split into layers. Next time I may use a thin chipboard, or card stock.
       
       
       

       
      Here they are all primed up, ready for paint. 
       

       

      Some of the designs are just decorative, while others are leather straps and buckles that bind the whole book, metallic corners to help "protect" the covers' corners, etc.

       
      I apologize for the dreadful lighting on these. I used the same acrylic paints I use on my minis. Next time I'll use craft paint because craft paints are thicker and go on thicker, which you definitely want. Spent a lot of time waiting for layers to dry. 
       
      I used metallics for the raised bits on the finished ones above and I am pretty happy with the first set. 
       
      The second set will have some more ambitious designs such as reptile scale book covers and:

       

      an eye sculpted out of green stuff! The more I use it, the more I love it. It allows me to add all sorts of little details to things as well as fill gaps.
       
       
      I'll post the finished shots once I get the last of them painted up. 
       
      I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to craft your own props for your dungeons/games. Happy Crafting!

      Saw about this via Black Magic Craft.
      31 Euro shipping for rest of the world will probably rule me out. I'm not sure I can find value in 85 euro all in for books and templates. That's a lot of supplies (I dont have room for).

      There's a patch of wasteground on Beechwood Avenue where the old primary school used to stand until destroyed by a bomb on the afternoon of April 11, 1941.
       
      Locals have long said that spot is haunted. Pedestrians say there's a cold patch as you walk past it. Kids dare each other to touch the walls, although few actually will. Dogs shy away from the area.
       
      Some people even claim to have seen a small girl wearing a gasmask.
       
      This is all obviously rubbish.
       
      But Rose is still waiting for her mummy.
