You did that in 4 hours? Including the freehand? And the basing? :blink:

 

She's fantastic! LOVE all the freehand work.

What part of VA are you in, MamaGeek? I'd like to come and learn at your feet. ^_^

 

But seriously, that's amazing for a speed paint. That's pretty bloody good for a slow paint. I hope this means you'll be returning to the forums more.

 

edit: added a y.

That looks lovely, especially as quickly as it came together.

 

And it looks like the paint crew version of a mini I recently entered in the RCon contest.

 

I am jealous of your very fast freehand skills.

Thanks, everyone! I'm trying to push myself to get faster, and all these Bones minis will keep me in practice. Last Knight, my participation on the boards varies, but I do admit I've been lurking more than anything else lately. Life is so busy! I'll try to get on more... and feel free to PM me if you post so etching you'd especially like me to look at. That goes for anyone!

 

Jab, I probably spent more time on the eyes in proportion to the amount of the mini they make up than I did anywhere else. The eyes are the focal point, so they're very important.

She looks great, I love how the paint scheme works on her. Although you did make the cloak a more feminine pink than the studio job.

 

I would love to see how you make your bases, I am terrible with green stuff and would love to see what steps you take to achieve that style of base.

I agree with everyone else, her eyes are her face look great! She certainly does look very cheeky. I adore all the freehand patterns on the various fabrics you have, beautifully executed, especially given the time you allowed yourself.

Thanks, again!

 

Marsya, you push a glob of green stuff into a rough approximation of the shape you want, then get a clean, nicely textured rock from your yard, wet it so it doesn't stick, and gently press it all over the green stuff. The texture transfers, and voila! a rocky base. The rest is just paint, maybe a leaf or some static grass.

Beautiful job Joy, this one is sitting on my paint table as well....I am using the Bones minis as a way to practice techniques without too much cost investment.

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?

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      (bigger pics on my blog : click the pic to go there)

      Hello forum family, as I already wrote in the WIP thread I just wanted an Aasimar but don't wanna buy one, so I decided to make my own converting the bones version of the Ghoul Queen and the Angel of Shadows.

      And this is the outcome:  Hi-res picture
       

       

      I really like how she came out, I really hope you'll like her too!
      Every c&c and advice is super welcome :)
      Thank you for watching!

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!

      Here's the bones Cave Troll!  I painted some of the pustules red with white-heads on them...very gross and troll-ey.  :)

      Ok, forum family, as the title says, I really wanna paint an Aasimar, but atm I can't buy any more mini (wanna paint what I have before!) and so I decided to make my own one.
      So I took this: 


      and this:


      to make this one:
