The hair looks amazing - you really nailed the double highlight (white on top of brown) that is characteristic of brown hair.

This looks really good. I agree with everything the others have already posted.

 

Stupid question time, but what colours did you use to paint the overcoat? I can't quite tell from the pic.

It's my favorite neutral mixed grey and painting secret: burnt sienna mixed with ultramarine blue, lightened as needed with white.

 

Perfectly balanced, those two colors produce a semi-transparent naturally matte near-black that makes richer and more subtle shadows than straight black. With white added it becomes a nuanced neutral grey.

 

It's not quite perfect for glazing on minis scale, because even high quality ultramarine blue has a gritty texture in washes, but it makes for lovely deep shadows.

 

The mix can be tilted towards either brown or blue and mixed with white to make warm or cold greys which harmonize perfectly with the neutral one and blues and browns that also go together naturally.

 

I have painted entire paintings using only those three colors. I don't know that I would recommend that, but it is an interesting exercise.

By comparison, her catsuit and boots are pure black, highlighted with simple greys mixed with black and white.

Thanks for that detailed reply. I was thinking it had an almost burgandy grape look to it. I didn't pickup on the blue at all.

 

I quite like it as it sets off the rest of your blacks nicely.

Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine blue. I use those two colours a fair bit by themselves, but I would never have thought blending the two would come out like this. Learn something new every day, and seeing how I have a dark elf on my plate next, something immediately useful.

I really like the warmth in your shadows, and the clear sense of directional light you've got going on here...

Wait you haven't seen at least the trailer for Underworld to get the joke?

Still one of my favourite movies. MMMmmMMmm Kate Beckinsale in latex with fangs.

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
      However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
       
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
       
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
       
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
       
      Enjoy! ( or not)
       
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
       
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.  ( Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon) and the Egyptian ones are in Shifting Sands Project)
       
      EDIT - Asked to merge my Undead Threads into one.
      Now Lords and Ladies of Death.
       
      This is for all the Ghotic Undead and their friends like Werewolves/Witches/Demons etc etc..

      So I started 3D printing and one of the models was a female Vampire, I scaled her down to size since she was actually a large model.
       
      I was inspired to paint her like Elvira.
       
      Elvira:
       
       
       
      My Lady:
