Give me a rainy day when I have had the chance to prime a Miniature, and I am OFF to the races.

I was lucky that the Norwegian news had a whole lot of stuff I was interested in, or I would have gone nuts

on this Miniature.  The Froggy Queen is sculpted by my favorite sculptor, AND it is 28mm.  Kathud.

So I have the best of both worlds, Tom's sculpt and a larger size to play with.

I am thinking of doing a Norsk Bunad style gown on the Queen.

(I think I have gone insane).. but we shall see.

Here is where I am at with the Froggy Queen. 

I am just going to play, and enjoy this piece of incredible.

I am done for the evening.

Tomorrow I have a busy day, which includes an hour walk in the forest. (It will be cool enough to restore my soul).

I am planning on a deep blue skirt, with freehand decoration.

I'm just building up the blue base, so I have something to paint on.

I'm really enjoying this figure so far, and the blouse is going to be a mind blower to do.. !!!

Yay! Looks good so far.

 

I just started the prep work on my prince. I'll start a WiP once I have him on a base. Such fun!

 

Looking forward to seeing your freehand on thus one!

I have to admit that sometimes; as I step back, and look over more than an hour's work on a miniature;

I am shocked at how much time I spend putting elements BACK into shadow.

The next series of photos deal with the dark blue skirt (I keep on making it darker and darker), layer by layer.

I then made the shadow pleats darker and darker.  They went from green to a wine purple, I think I'm happy with

that.  I also set the back of the skull into more shadow, getting the head at a color that I can paint the ruff and make it and the

back of her skull look natural, and set myself up to pop that Tiara into view, with a dark foundation around it.

(translation in one sentence:  you can't show light without dark behind it).

 

Enough philosophy... here are some photos about what I am yammering about.

If I don't stop laughing I will never be able to get this miniature finished !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every darn time I start getting serious, I laugh when I see it, and then I start getting wild ideas

about color mixtures.  I've decided that since there are NO RULES about how this Frog Queen should look;

I might as well have a good time painting her, and experimenting.  So with that in mind, I'm off in another

direction than I originally had planned. 

I really like this ! 

 

Here is Her Maj as she looks now.

If I don't stop thinking of Elizabeth I as I paint this thing, I'm going to choke to death laughing.

I have been adjusting colors, and painting that Ruff around her neck.

and the one under her chin, and getting the shadows back in.

 

That's it for today, since I have to prepare dinner this afternoon.

 

Here is the Froggy Queen.

Glad to hear you're having a blast painting her hoppyness! It's always easier to paint when you're having fun. :)

      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.

      And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
       
      So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
       

       
      His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
       
      My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro.
       
      The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi
       
      You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here:
      http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/
       
      We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well.
       
      Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!

      Winter Salutations to you cold weather Reaper ptarmigans!
       
      So I'd mentioned in a previous post how Ral Partha Legacy, a sister company of Iron Wind Metals, has recently opened up and one of their ranges they have acquired is Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.  So here is one of them a Wood Elf Lady:
       

       
      I really love these miniatures. I'm used to painting Ral Partha stuff, but these are quite a bit different, as the detail is so fine and detailed.  The eyes and some of the jewelry is so small and hard to paint.   Even though they are 30 mm, they are quite realistically proportioned so lots of the details aren't exaggerated.
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy, and if you've got a few moments check out the Ral Partha Legacy page!
