Speedpaint Schmeedpaint, that's still a better paintjob than I could give her even if I spent a month.

Love the cloak and the Marike-ish eyes.

I'm quite jealous of your speed paint skills--she looks great! With freehand to boot...I'm doubly impressed. Any time-saving tips for us slow, methodical painters?

Not really, other than forcing yourself to do it. I used to work one section at a time, obsessing over it until it was just right. When I speed paint, I base coat most of it, then work wherever. If I start to get hung up on something, I force myself to leave it, move on to another section, and come back to it later. And I allow myself to be happy with "good enough," which is the hardest part for me.

I think you've identified my biggest hurdle right there! Thanks for sharing a bit of your process.

Is that an Orc god in the background, I really like the way you painted these especially the big guy and the spriggan well done. That's a good Orc boss mini there.

No kidding MamaG! This one took me about a week total, basing included. Yours looks awesome and I thought I recognized the paint job. Love it! (I'm sending you Super Dungeon Explorer so you can finish it in a day! Lol!)

I have to confess I am totally baffled as to how this ended up back at the top of Show Off.  I posted her back in April of 2013.  :blink:

 

Well, maybe Reaper newcomers can glean some inspiration from my humble efforts.

 

And thanks again for all the (new) compliments. :blush:

Looks really nice! that cloak is to die for! What is in her other hand?

 

 It's a crossbow that she's holding behind her back.

Cough.

 

Some of us occasionally trawl the old posts for subjects of interest, or worthy things for people to see anew.

The resurrection is MUCH appreciated. This is one of the coolest halfling paint jobs I've ever seen. I added her to the cart right after seeing this. Reaper needs to add these photos to her product page. I never gave the sculpt a second look until I saw this thread. The white Bones photos don't do this figure justice.

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Had a lot of fun painting this one, even if he came rather close to being over-detailed even for me.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.
