Hello all you Reaperloogans!
So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress. I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her. She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base. She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish.
Hopefully she turned out okay!
Good evening Reaperhoochagans!
So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies:
and here they are together:
This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights
So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!
EDIT: adding a link to the original set of fairies:
The Eye Beast (77043) by Julie Guthrie is finished.
In the end this almost counts as a speed paint, as it only took me around three evenings.
The central eye really caused me headaches. First it was green, then I decided it needs more contrast. So yellow it was. I also tried out a layer of UV resin to get the glossy cabochon eye look and I think it worked well.
What really helped speed up the process was establishing the base colours via airbrush. Everything else was just glazes with dark brown, turquois and orange.
Good evening Reapertons!
So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986. She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook. Anyway, showing off new to old:
and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
and here they are all together:
So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme. There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief. One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing. Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!
