So while I was shopping at Ral Partha Europe (not the same as Ral Partha), I spotted some figures from Das Schwarze Auge which looked kind of nice in an Old School sort of way.
Das Schwarze Auge was apparently Germany's answer to D&D in the 1980s. It was (might still be) quite popular there.
I don't know the history of the figures.
Anyhow, this is Das Schwarze Auge 15500B, "Female Sorcerer".
I started this figure a while back, keeping it at the back of my painting table and adding bits as I painted other things.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
I already painted her face before I took a picture.
Oh, and I left the orb on her staff just primed white because that will make it look more glowing when I paint it later.
