60087 master spy (Pathfinder): sculpt & paint D. Schubert


Recommended Posts


@Corporea, @Pingo, @Kuro Cleanbrush: The pattern didn't take long and it wasn't very careful. The concept art shows a leafy pattern, but I abstracted it. I painted the dress all in Swamp Green (because what says "haute couture" better than Swamp Green? ::P:) and shaded with Brown Liner. Then I just scribbled Highlands Moss (cool gray-green) in a lot of small arcing strokes and dots. I touched up these scribbles, thickening or connecting some of them, to make a better visual balance between the marks and the background. Then I highlighted some of the marks with Olive Green (more yellow than the Highlands Moss), and some again with Pale Olive -- more highlights at the center (midline of the figure), fewer at the sides, to simulate a sheen in the fabric. It's similar to what I did when I painted Lem the bard and the dark elf sorcerer:








Thanks for explaining how you did that! I have a mini coming up to the painting table very soon that would benefit greatly from such a technique, so I'll be sure to give it a try!

Thanks for the props, Derek! This is a great example of why you are the master and I yet a journeyman...she just beautiful! It's not really been mentioned, but having painted her myself, your handling of the mask is amazing. Thanks once again for providing a piece to learn from. ::):
