I like her and the little bot. You did a great job with the purples on her skirt and the free hand on her blouse is nice. I like the first back drop better for her as the second one really does wash out her face. As a Victorian lady her skin should be pale and delicate though and you've captured that.  Also your basing is excellent.

Kharsin, they both look fantastic! I think the ruffles turned out great, the purple dress is awesome and I love the gold shading on the bot. You can easily make your own light box from a cardboard box, some light, white cloth, and 3 identical light sources.

Thank you all so much! Yes, the ruffles drove me nuts, and probaby added a couple of days to the process. I'd get them almost finished "try" something, then have to start all over! Lol!

Very nice work. I like the freehand on her blouse. Great ruffles, too. The metal on the bot is well done. The glint on the eye piece goes a long way to showing the difference between the glass of the lens and the metal of the body.

Thank you very much! I don't think I shall be attempting any more ruffles for a while. The metal on "Clunk" was an experiment using Vallejo Glazing Medium. I also used it a lot on the half buried gear as well. I went glaze crazy for a while, but I was happy with the results.


Again, thanks to everyone for the comments! I'm definitely trying to improve, and hope to get better!

As they say, the third time is the charm! I've tried posting this twice already so... here we go!


My lightbox finally came in and I've used it to take pics of my exchange mini, but as I can't post those quite yet, I went ahead and took a few pics of "The Picnic" to see how they compared to the non-light box versions. The results are below. I do believe that they cut out some of the harshness of the lights, and make them look really good! Of course, the box ended up being a LOT bigger than I thought it would be. It's a 2' box and covers up our entire tiny dining table. Maybe I should've gone for the 12" box, but I think the results are fine with the 2', although I have to crawl inside to take my pics...  :upside:


You can see how big this thing is. I can fit my Ott light inside, which is a good thing as I don't have a light source strong enough to light the entire box from above.





Here's the first pic with the light box:

Second pic with light box:

At any rate, they look more warm to me, which I like. It should also be noted that I'm taking the new pics with a Galaxy s5, while the old ones were taken with my old Casio digital camera. I'm pleased with them, even if I do have to crawl inside of the thing... LOL!


I'll post the pics of the Exchange mini when my exchange partner receives hers and gives the okay. They came out really nice! 


Please leave comments and ideas, and thank you so much for reading!

Amazing job on the whole thing! I love the whole steampunk picnic concept with her robot friend. She looks perfectly Victorian. I really like the cog/gear they they are standing on, love the touch of the mushroom, and the plants look rather nice as well.

      Presenting Alfredo "The Dandy" Francini, a low level mobster with a love of brightly coloured clothes, he's part of the Scylla faction from the now defunct (I think) game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio.
      This guy has been sitting in my 'to be painted' pile for far too long, so I worked on him for the last couple of weeks in between other projects.

      I went with saturated colors on this one.  Enough of the black and brown, this Sascha is from a dimension where the future's so bright you gotta wear shades.

      Before the known ages, the ancient gods, who were traveling through time and space, between galaxies and systems, between planets and moons, finally reached this small blue planet and its light gray moon. Millions of years ago, searching for the force on the dark side of this moon, they found the crystals that emitted enormous energy.
      They took it with them and returned to the blue planet. With the use of the power from other dimensions they try to warp the crystal and use it for their own dark plans.
      It quickly turned out that the crystal emitted too much power, a power that did not harmonize with the forces of the Ancient One. The symbiosis caused conflict and damage to the ancients. The warped crystal had been abandoned by them here... and for millions of years, it had lain, covered by layers of earth and sand in the darkness and silence...

      Greetings from Andrzej (Ater), Jakub (MiniaturesArtTeam), and Pawel  (PJG_sculptor). For some time we were working together on something on the side which finally became a big miniature project. We plan to put it together in a board-battle game!
      But let's take small steps and start gently. In our first project, we want to offer you some miniatures from the world which were shown to us in the dreams by one guy, who calls himself Cthulhu (we know... it is quite weird, but the dreams were really cool).
      Inspired by these visions, we create a new universe in the dark, steampunk/dieselpunk climate. Now we want to show you our project and we cordially invite you not only to participate in the project itself but also to create it. Please, share your thoughts and opinions with us! Please come closer, sit down and hear a story about the Crystocracy.

      WIP HERE:
      Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
      Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
      Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
      People no longer believed in the supernatural.
      Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
      When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
      He would show them!
      He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
      Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
      And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..

      Presenting the Shrike Urchin, this sewer wader is part of Twisteds Dickensian faction.
      Really struggled with this one for some reason (the fact he's very unstable didn't help), but I think he came out okay.
