Oh MY !

Corporea that is INCREDIBLE !!!!

That monocrome painting is astonishing.

I can't imagine what you will be able to do with any color now.

You have mastered black, what would you do with purple, green, Red, or Blue ?

You have just opened up a new world !!

Gratulerer !

yeah- I'm going to try to make it as easy on myself as possible! ^_^  I have some stonework elements in mind and I may or may not build a tree.

In the meantime, got just a bit more done.  I haven't done anything else with the highlights on the breastplate yet...


Wow just wow!

Ok, so I've been taking everyone's great advice and trying to push the highlights just a bit.  I haven't been painting much.  I just got over one of the worst cases of either food poisoning or evil GI viral madness.  Regardless, I lost 4 pounds in 24 hours.  Ugh.  ugh ugh ugh.  It took me about a week to want to do anything, much less paint.  But I'm back!




I really want to get started on the base but I'm trying to resist the urge.  I want to make sure I have the foot holes lined up right first.  I haven't done anything with the sides/face of the shield except a basecoat- I just wanted to get the underside painted before I attached it.  I'll do the feet after I attach her to the base.

Lovely work, and glad you're feeling better! The stronger highlights are really working on the breastplate, and her left leg especially is really reading well. If I had any critique, it would be that in these photos, her cheekbones look as reflective/shiny as the armor now, but I'd guess that it's not that case in the hand.

Thanks all!  Yeah.  I reached a point where I just sat in the bathroom waiting... I miss about 1 day a year being sick and this was definitely it.  I felt so fortunate though because the night I was sick I was on call.  I remember lying there praying no one would call me with an emergency because I wasn't really sure what I could do about it.  No one called!!! Small blessings, right?


And I think I may tone down the face with a glaze later- it's not quite as intense as the armor in person, but it is a bit more contrast than I want.  I was trying to decide what shade of skintone to go with at the time- lighter or darker.

Wow. This is really coming along.


I also love seeing your process; I don't know why I've never thought about not painting the feet of a mini that's being painted off-base. Totally smart.


Glad you're feeling better! Stomach woes are never a good time.

Corporea, KATHUD !


This is so delicate a work.

Its inspirational.

You are becoming a miniature whisperer. 

The quiet, sensuousness of this sculpt, and the deftness of your brush strokes makes me breathless.

This is a monumental signature work.

Its stunning in its simplicity.

Thank you for showing us that such a thing is possible.

Magnificent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The merfolk in Dark Depths sculpted by Bobby Jackson were one of the things I was most looking forward to in Bones 5.
      I chose the Mermaid Ranger for my RCL Q3 Large Group “Under the Sea”, and started work on her after ReaperCon.
      I've been trying to make bolder color choices, and thought this was a great mini to push myself in that direction.
      I’ve posted some WIPs on discord, but wanted to record the process here in a bit more detail.

      First I primed both rangers with Badger neutral primer, and then basecoated the tails and hair with 0963 Coal Black

      Then I tried to airbrush the tails with 09330 Wild Violet while leaving some dark shadows.

      Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
      They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

        This is my first post really on forums.  I normally post on Facebook. My wife and I paint models alot of the time side by side. Whilst I prep our quarterly contest entry we worked on these Storm Giants...  About half way done.
