2002 Christmas Sophie

Recommended Posts

Well, I wasn't going to do a WIP. Wasn't even going to start this until Monday, but like in a lot of things, I blame Buglips.

More than that, I blame how his was coming which is why I went ahead and after primer slobbered on brown liner in a very Goblin-like fashion.

 

As I said, I wasn't going to do a WIP, but the sun was getting in my eyes at my work table so I had to take a break anyway, and decided to snap a few pictures

and two more, showing the base red, and a bit of green. I went green on her boot to try and tie in more with the green on the presents, and the green band on the jingle bells on her arm, but I think that's gonna go back to being a brown leather, it just looks silly to me. The little critter in the bag is going to become a tangerine coloured goblin dolly. Three guesses who inspired that

that roof is brown liner with oiled leather drybrushed over it, and a bit of ruddy leather shadow. That's all. nothing to it, but it does look good don't it? I give the full credit to the incredible Sandra Garrity

well, got some good painting time in this morning. Chimney bricks and mortar base coated, and the base on all the leather bits done. Next step, details and highlights. Wish me luck.

yes, yes it would. You really should. And get the Santa and Helper Mouslings too, have an awesome assortment of Holiday minis to display. That's my plan anyway

I quite like the lighter coloured mortar between the bricks.

 

Really makes the chimney *pop*!

 

Will you be adding any snow to the roof?

to the roof itself, probably not. I am considering snow around the base though. I think it's supposed to have a sort of step sided edge around the base, but that seems to be miscast somewhat, so I have thought of hiding it in snow

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead.
      This thread will be dedicated to all the beautiful female vampires/necromancers/ghosts and apparitions.
      I will also include all my Sophie minis..
       
      Here are the girls I have painted before to show what this is all about, soon more Undead / Evil Sisters will follow.
       
      EDIT - Changed the Name of the thread from the Alluring Death to Ladies of Death since not all are actually Undead.

      This one I have put off painting since way back when. In it's unpainted form I thought it had soft details and was a bit crude. As soon as I started painting it now, the drybrushing revealed another side to it, so to speak.
      It turned out much better than I expected, mainly as the faces are easier to read than when unpainted, and the details are not as shallow as I had thought.
       
      Again, I use a big brush when painting big bones, this one was mainly painted with a 15mm wide flat and a 5mm flat. It was painted mainly with drybrushing with no washes used at all.
      I started over a black undercoat, I painted the entire thing with new Citadel Incubi Darkness, and drybrushed this heavily with new Citadel Kantor Blue. Next was a heavy drybrush with old Gamecraft Olive Green on the top half and Vallejo Game Color Dead Flesh on the bottom half.
      The stripes are in an old dark red I think is Leviathan Fire Dragon Red. I am not quite sure, as it was poured over into another pot at some point, and I did not write what it was on the new pot. I drybrushed the stripes with new Citadel Wazzdakka Red.
      The back ridges, horns and claws were done with new Citadel XV-88, Bleached Bone and Reaper Splintered Bone. The mouths were painted Kantor Blue followed by Citadel Screamer Pink and Wazdakka Red, and a mix with yellow at the edges. Eyes in bleached bone, Yriel Yellow and Wazdakka Red. Teeth in Reaper Splintered Bone.
       

      I printed out a base for it, and built it a little up on the front end to make the beast stand a little taller. The cracks and edges were hidden with clumps of tufts.
       
      Many of the miniatures in the first Bones kickstarter were based on metal minis already in production. Might this be a factor for softer details on those than on the newer ones?
      This was a paid add on on the KS.

      This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days.
       
      The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon):

      From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale
      (Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.)
       
       
      There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free.
       
      Quick ground rules:
      1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one).
       
      2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol).
       
      3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters.
       
      4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly.
       
      5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier.
       
      Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot.
       
      Alright, now let's get this party started!

      When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and  saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with how it turned out.

      One of my favourite works: freebooter miniatures succubus. 
      Used a "slannesh" palette, mainly purple. I'm happy with the outcome. To give it a little more impact I tried a freehand on the wings. A pretty simple one, I think it looks cool, but it could be better if I dared to try to shadow/highlight it instead of using a plain color. There is more contrast on her skin & wings; here on this photo it doesn't look good because it was a pretty intense white light and it makes it all look the same... 
       
      I like to name my miniatures but I wasn't feeling creative here, so I just named her Lillith... 
      Btw lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
