Amazon Army...Private Collection...Figure # 8

Recommended Posts

It may seem a simple thing but I like the matching 2nd colour that you added to her boots and clothing.

I also like the rock outcrop breaking up the greenery of the base, and your work on the stone tip of the spear.

 

I know these may seem like odd parts of the mini and base for me to comment on, but they are the parts that caught my attention first.

Hi Darsc;

 

As always, thank you for your comment(s)...I really enjoy that you have the keen eye (as you have done in the past) to pick out my subtle details in my vignettes...I am surprised that you made no comment on the green leaf plant behind her...It was made out of tissue thin cigarette papers...soaked in water...wrinkled up & let dry...cut into leaf shapes...stained with (4) ink colors...let dry...sprayed with a dull finish coat...added to the vignette base/one leaf at a time...I think that they turned out pretty nice (even if I say so myself).

Sorry Catdancer. I didn't comment on the plant, although it certainly is something that draws the eye, because I had thought it was something that you had bought and repurposed to use as scenery. I hadn't realized it was handmade by yourself. ::):

 

While I don't want to take focus way from the topic at hand, since I have you here I was wondering if we might see you return to your fantasy buildings and the market/fair booths anytime soon.

 

I know you had said you wanted to take a break from them to focus on other projects such as your amazon... But it has been a while and was curious. :;):

That is a SPLENDID piece of painting & basing. I love the beauty mark...it's attention to details that make your creation special for moi. VERY WELL DONE!

Darsc;

 

It is ironic that you mention/bring up the topic of fantasy buildings and the market/fair booths...my return to them had crossed my mind around my birthday...my current schedule has the following items/projects in the works and/or pending...I want to/have to get these done prior:

 

1. A commission project for a fantasy bordello/sporting house in 28-32mm scale...for a private collector.

2. Amazon female (Reaper #03303 = with club)...for my amazon army.

3. Amazon female (Dragonblood #DBM011...Princess of the Evening Star...for my amazon army.

4. Amazon female (Elmore Masterworks #DSM-1169)...Amazon with two handed sword.,,for my amazon army.

5. Bayou fishing wharf (scratch built = listed in my (WIP) list for the first 6 months of 2014...a major piece for my own collection.

 

So as to when I will return to the fantasy buildings and market/fair booths...I have no real idea and/or time frame.

Wow. You do have quite the project list Catdancer. Lots of variety in subject matter too. Looks like you've got your work cut out for you.

 

I expect you'll be posting pics of most of these. Any chance you'll be able to post pics of your commission piece once it's done before you send it off?

 

I'd also be most looking forward in seeing your Bayou fishing wharf once its done. There's something about your nautical themed work that I quite like.

I only post commission work...if my client gives me permission to do so...The (3) amazon figures will have to be posted off-site due to the topless nudity of each figure...The Bayou fishing wharf will be posted (but that is a few months down the line...at best).

      Recently finished this lovely mini from Dark Sword. Toyed with a few ideas but the winter theme ended up being the one that stuck. I wish I had had more time to spend on it but I am happy with how she turned out.

        Owlbear cubs The Baby Bestiary 7th Annual Calendar
      Each year, since the inception of the Baby Bestiary, we've put together an annual calendar featuring a new talented artist to illustrate to bring to life our adorable calendar.
      With a different artist, we can explore the adorable through their eyes, see them experiment with new styles and interpretations of what the Baby Bestiary means to them. With every passing year, we’ve had amazing pieces that have resonated with our community.
      Artist Feature: Kelsey
      Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey, also known around the internet as Keymonster or just Key. I am a full-time, freelance artist and illustrator working out of the Pacific Northwest. My creative passions center around animals, plants and the fantastical worlds they exist in. I love creating plant/animal hybrids and integrating botanical motifs and imagery into the worlds that I build as well as creating adorable little creatures of all shapes and sizes getting into a bunch of mischief.

      Presenting Tzandi, a member of Monkey's Troupe from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Been painting this one on and off for a while, as I could only work on her teeny tiny details in small bursts (She essentially feels like a much larger scale mini that's been shrunk down). I think taking my time paid off as I'm pretty pleased with the results.
      This also means I've actually finished a set of something for a change (At least until Long Ma the dragon comes out):-

      Presenting The Bride of Nurgle, the leader of the Nurgle warband in the game Warhammer:- Underworlds by Games Workshop.
       
      I don't usually post my Underworlds stuff here, but I felt this one deserved it.
      Annoyingly, I did a really good job painting her face but you can't see most of it once her fringe is attached.

      Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig.
      The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots.
      Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.
