Bones Strumpet

Recommended Posts

Very nicely done.  However, her look reads to me as less "come hither" and more "get over here so's I can stick you with the stiletto I have strapped to my thigh."

Hi Silvervane;

 

You did a great job on this miniature figure...The flesh tones are outstanding, the wardrobe is subtle and delicate and I love the color coordination between the dress & corset and the hair color and shading is outstanding...Again you did a great job on (in my opinion) a great female figure.

 

I have painted (6) of these figures for varied clients and never get tired of her.

Pink and red, quite a fashion statement! Love the paint job, but the eye looks too frowny. could just be the sculpt though? the menacing look still works for this figure though!

Wow, amazing!  Especially love the hair.  It looks real.

 

Thanks,  I think I am finally getting a handle on highlighting hair.

 

She looks lovely Silverane! Great job.

 

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Hmm, since when do those have to be mutually exclusive.  Especially if I use her for an RPG encounter.

 

way to finish strong.  looks great!

 

Thanks, I appreciate the input you gave me.

She does have a certain flair to her. Thanks, I did get a lot of advice on color coordination in my WIP.

The figure's face is a bit of a challenge.  I have a metal of her, and might try paint her again to see if the face is the same for her.

Silvervane;

 

I just realized that this was a (bones figure)...it looks even more outstanding! All the ones that I have painted have been the metal versions. In fact, I have never been asked to paint a (bones figure) of any kind, by anyone.

Thanks, catdancer. I've been mixing it up with both metals and bones. After painting up the last couple bones I have to say once you get used to the medium, you can produce some good results. I still like the metals, yet bones have grown on me as well.

I have seen the prices...bones tend to be a great money saver...but I am very reluctant to paint (plastic type figures). I have heard both pro & con in regard to these (yes, you can prime and paint them just like you do metal figures)...(no, you can not prime and paint them the same way you do metal figures). 

 

So I really don't know the true story. That is one main reason that I have never bought a bones figure and/or painted a bones figure...and as I said, I have never had anyone commission me to paint a bones figure...thus in my mind, I have the question (Why are all my clients sticking to metal figures?)

 

But as I stated prior...this bones strumpet that you painted is really outstanding and looks as great as the metal ones...I have seen painted and painted myself.

Paul, message me sometime, I'd be happy to toss a few bones your way to paint up and see how you like them. I got in on the first KS so I have well over 200 of them sitting around to be painted.

My money is on the weight factor. You pick up a bones and you think toy. Pick up a metal and you think paper weight. (Then again I've told I think strangely.) The metal just feels like you are holding something.

 

That or tradition. Flip a coin.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
