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...

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
