Seriously digging the freehand on the shield! Nice transitions and highlighting on the robe (love that desaturated green, too). As for improvement, I'd have taken the shadows for the hair a touch darker. Maybe down to Mahogany Brown. Also, the splint mail looks great, but more shadow on the top 2/3 of each splint might be a wee bit more dramatic.

 

Seriously though, I'll be stealing a lot of this for my attempt at her.

Thanks everyone, I am glad you have found inspiration in her.

I had to do something on the shield. It was driving me crazy to leave it plain. The green is actually Reaper's Moss triad highlighted up with Linen White. Thanks for the tip on the hair, I am using the same colors on my next one so that is a timely tip.

Agreed

 

 

 

Both of you can steal away!

 

 

Love it. I want to give this one a go but have yet to figure out how to fix the sword blade. Top notch work here. Thanks for sharing. 

 

The sword was a pain. It was really thin and flimsy so I shaved to much off when cleaning it up. I looked up old viking swords and saw that many were flat bladed so I did not need to shape it too much.

Great mini.  The red-green-brown combo is excellent. Natural and realistic.  Good to see a red-headed valkyrie for once.   Love the shield.  I'm going to have to try that pattern somewhere.  A broken blade might have been more dramatic!

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!
