Pingo, I am stealing this palette for my Bones bathalian. It is amazing. What did you mix in for highlights?

 

Edit: I was so focused on the skin that I didn't even notice that fantastic green OSL. God it's a pleasure to look at your work.

Still, the scale creep doesn't seem too bad in this case. I have a couple Ral Partha elves that look seriously like halflings when compared to the models from the Warlord Elf faction.

Oh yeah!  That's a fantastic purple!  You know, you're wearing me down- I'm eventually going to break down and get some golden liquid acrylics! I even went to the website and put a few in my cart just to check prices the other day...

 

Great blending!  I love the striped... corset? Doublet?  Anyway- nice stripes!

Thanks!  Here are a couple of detail pictures of the green bottle.

(And now you can see how sloppy my painting is up close.)

 

The skin is a series of mixes of Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta, as I mentioned, in varying percentages (which is why some areas look bluer and some more purple).  I lightened it with pure Titanium White.

 

At times I glazed a bit of the purple mix over paler to keep things from looking chalky.  That's also how I got the green of the bottle so vivid: an intense transparent yellow-green glaze over spots shaded from green and pale green.

The remarkable thing about your work is that up close, it looks like the sorts of textures and blends that you'd see on a canvas painting. Most of us don't have that training, so we don't default to that mode of thinking, which is why your work is so, SO interesting and impressive for those of us that are perhaps more "hobbyists" than "artists".

I'm going to link to tbroadwater's lovely Sea Captain here because it's the same figure with a completely different approach but it doesn't have any tags and wouldn't be searchable by its name or SKU.

 

I love seeing how other people paint the same minis I've painted.

      This is the very first mini I painted this year! :D

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello again!
       
      here are the other two that I just finished, two elven fighters that Ran Partha did a while back.  They had a couple neat ideas, one was to have a male and female version of a race and class, and these two are the miniatures that are for the Male and Female Elven Fighters.  Not sure who the sculptor is on these, should probably find out.  
       
      I did them both with more or less identical color schemes, partly in the thought that it's the same adventurer just in a different male or female version and then also because it made my life easier with one color scheme instead of two.
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.
       
      CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!
