77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much everyone! As many layers as it took, I really enjoyed seeing my idea take shape. Strangely, working on a large 'mini' seems much harder than a small one. My C'thulhu may have just moved a little further back on my To Do list.

 

Yes, the staff is not ideally positioned. I am relieved to hear that it's not just mine though. I hadn't realized how bad it was until I was highlighting her skin and using the excellent examples in the store as a reference. At that point, it was too late for a trip to the boiler, so I just left it alone.

 

The secret to her hair, by the way, is to use Ultramarine Shadow for the basecoat. I really wanted some of the blue-purple undercoat to show for this piece, but suspect that if you add more layers of red, and are less sloppy on the yellow highlights, it would make for a very nice dark redhead. In fact, I think that's going to be my go-to for dark red hair now.

      Another result from my 4th of July Paint Binge. A couple of creepy crawlies for the players to encounter down an old mine shaft:

      For your consideration I present my take on the Golan, Hill Giant. This was painted by me as part of a contest for a Twitch streamer I follow. The challenge was to push your boundaries and do something you had never done before. I chose this model because I had never worked on something with this much skin before and I really needed to practice my skin tones. I went with a more earthy look in the color pallet and am pretty happy with how it turned out. C&C welcome

      Working on the Stone Giant. I'm looking for any constructive criticism but especially of the highlighting on the flesh. Not sure if I am finished or if it needs more highlights on the flesh. Everything else just is base colors and has not been worked on other than that.  He came missing the the left hand and club.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I'm pretty excited about finishing this guy. Stone giant (HT8c) from Otherworld Miniatures. I used Badger's gray airbrush primer, Reaper 09086 Stone Grey and 09087 Weathered Stone 09476 Woodland Brown, Army Painter Dark Tone wash.
