77096: Labella DeMornay, Banshee

Recommended Posts

So, I'm kinda stuck on this one. I followed the first several steps I did for my nightspectre. Where I'm stuck is what to do for the skin color. Do I go a greenish vampire, vampire, dark elf, copper tan, etc?

 

My flash makes it appear that there is more white than what there really is, also I didn't touch up the skin and definitive clothing bits so they still have a heavy white tone from the first few steps.

So I decided to go slightly more traditional on the banshee. Red hair and fair skin.

 

For the skin I added a touch of alien goo green to the vampire skin for a slight green tint. I added vampire highlight to the mix to keep the green tint theme. For the body of the dress I went with purple with green shadows, a reverse of the rest of the dress.

 

For the hair, I used carrot top red and auburn shadow. I then washed it with GW's baal red wash and picked out the ridges with highlight orange.

 

The face I went through three tries on the eyes and mouth. I had forgotten that the face in this one had come out very muted in the features. The eyes and mouth ended up nightmare black. The rest of the body I lined with GW's leviathian purple.

So I couldn't stand the face and decided to try my hand at trimming/recarving it. I cut the cheekbones down slightly to try and define the nose better. Unfortunately there really wasn't enough nose tip or lip to separate the nose from the mouth. After cutting the cheekbone, my wife said if looked like voldermort, cut the nose with snake slits then...oops too late. The left eye was almost non-existent so a little line cutting with a craft knife and reinforcing the new lines with a pin to widen and deepen the eye socket it looks better but not great. I'll take a pic of it tomorrow.

      It's the weekend - you know what time it is!
       
      This little monstrosity was sitting on my desk looking at me for the past 4 months.  I attempted painting it back in October and failed miserably at it.  I was trying a blue/white combo that just didn't come out well.  It also had a few issues with the fact I primed it with a black Vallejo spray primer that left it feeling tacky.  The first round was a dud, and I often find that redoing a miniature is not the wisest thing because it can leave me feeling like I have to perfect it over and over again.  
       
      However, this was not the case this time.  After watching the dreaded White/Black tutorial on RVE today, I found myself inspired to try again.  Thankfully I had stripped it last week and it was ready to begin again today.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      * Stripping this with Simple Green worked great.  Left it in for about a 4 days, brushed it with an electric toothbrush (which is a must in my opinion).  
      *  Sadly the tacky primer was not coming off, but it still took to the overspray of Stynylrez black over it without too many issues.  I then sprayed a white ink over it.  I did notice a slight 'crackling' of the ink over it, but I'll get to that later.
      *  Using the zenithal prime as my map, I starting by laying the darkest grey into the crevices and folds.  Following that wwa the next grey up and again with the light "ghostly white."  
      *  These were all close enough I didn't need to transition or mix much between the colors as the moodiness of this mini seemed to play well to the contrasts.  I did get a little carried away on the hood with longer streaks instead of just highlights and did a mid-grey glaze over that to hide it.  Worked better than I thought.
      *  The face and hands were using some SAMPLE that was sent to me in one of my Reaper orders that's this really, really, really lovely blue.  I used it to baselayer, then lightned up with white.  AWESOME.  I love it.  The blend between the ghastly skin and the robes really came out better than I hoped.
      * With the new confidence in getting to white, I felt pretty good using lighter colors and having a sense that this could be perceived as a white appiration.  
       
      Misses:
      *  Still the darkest grey wasn't dark enough.  Tried adding black and going back in, but it kind of made it more spotty than I hoped. 
      *  Used a Drakenshade wash to fill in some of the areas, but it's deeper than I wanted, but still does a decent job of not taking away from the other painting.
      *  Mouth - is there something else I sshoul have done?  Maybe make it glowing?  Make it dark black?  I wasn't sure.  Still need some help on that one.
       
      I'll have to make the tombstone pop a little more and lay some ground effects down on the final basing when I get there.  To say that this went from a total botched job to something I felt good enough about sharing, this is definitely a win.  Big kudos to the classes with RVE and getting to test it immediately to try my hand at something I was weak at.  WAY TO GO!  
       
      And as always - any feedback is kindly accepted.

      Once she was loved, then betrayed and murdered in cold blood.
      He got away with it and to keep up appearances he laid flowers on her grave.
      Thinking he could be happy with his new found love, keeping it a secret for now.
      In a while he would "meet a new girl" again and nobody would ever suspect the truth.
       
      One last time to play the grieving widower, he walked to her grave with some flowers in hand.
      Some other visitors looked at him, feeling sorrow for his loss.
      He smiled inside, if only they knew.
       
      The others left the cemetary.
      He laid down the flowers, no need to hang around if nobody was around.
      Besides he was longing for his new girl, one more look at the tombstone, a shame she wouldn't let him go.
      He had to free himself from her, too bad it had to end this way.
      Goodbye! He whispered and turned around.
       
      Oh, don't go yet! He heard a whispering voice say.
      A cold wind blew around his neck, he turned around and saw her ghost emerging from the grave.
      Two shiny daggers in her hands.
      You'll stay with me...forever!

      I had a lot of fun this this one, On top of making him fly, I really wanted to make it look like he was from a black and white movie. Doing that but keeping everything  distinct with such a limited color palette was challenging. I really enjoyed this project.
       
      I hope you like it.
