Shadowraven reworks a witch

Recommended Posts

So, I did her for a Halloween contest last year, but I wasn't happy with her, and being the season again, I decided she needed a redo, with my somewhat improved skills. So I stripped her and started again. Because of her...limited choice of clothes, and the season, I've come to refer to this figure as the queen of Pumpkin Cheesecake in my own mind, hence the file name.

Primed and lined, and more or less sitting properly on her base. Going to add a few things to clean up the look when I finish her, so ignore the bit of tab sticking up.

Heather blue slobbered on her main clothes. Just for a covering layer under the purple.

Even with the heather blue, it took a couple of layers to get the base of imperial purple. Lovely colour, but it suffers from poor coverage. The black however didn't. and only took a single thinned coat to cover in most places.

Some more work. Probably be the last update for today.

Did some work on the eyes. One day I will figure out how the pros do it.

And lastly some rosy skin. Yes that's skin on the stockings, I am going to try a highlight +glaze technique I've seen to good effect to try make them look sheer, If it fails, well, they are black, easy fix.

Are you going for NNN on the the stockings?

something like that yes, though somewhat simplified. Trying to push myself, and the stockings are something I can fix easy if I screw up.

I can never seem to get NNN right. I always end up with just a few layers of a glaze over the fully shaded and highlighted flesh tone. Some of the NNN tutorials I've seen are just layers and layers of the flesh tone and stocking color mixed in various amounts.

Yeah, I'm not really really hopeful about this. It's such a hard technique, and hey, I haven't gotten OSL down yet, this might well be beyond me, but it's fun to try new stuff, and when it works, it's great.

This is what "a few layers of a glaze over the flesh tone" gets me. (Not my best work, and a couple, er, several years old.)

Non-Naked Nudes. Shorthand for sheer fabrics through which you can see skin. (Because SFTWYCSS is so unwieldy.)

      Fairly quick mini... Needed something fun to give myself a bit of a mental break over the weekend. Probably 3 hours total - yes, I'm slow!

      More from the Bones 4 core set: we have arrived at the subset "Hungering Dead":
       

      Yup, these are your archetypical ghouls. Flesh eating horrors out looking for some nosh. Gnawers of bone, eaters of the dead. Which begs the question: do they count as cannibals if they no longer are human?
      Here is my very fast method of painting ghouls and similar effectively:
      These started out with a solid black undercoat. Then each was drybrushed several times with different beige tones, such as Citadel Ionrach Skin and Karak Stone. Then they were given washes on the undersides with shades such as Citadel Athonian Camoshade and Team Yankee Ordnance Shade. When dry, they were lightly drybrushed again with lighter fleshtones up to almost pure white, keeping to the top surfaces which leaves a kind of zenithal effect. The base rock were done in dark greengrey, drybrushed with yellowy sand, and then lighter drybrushed with offwhite. Black eye sockets with a white dot for the eye lends a sinister look to them.
      Dot in some details here and there, bases and done.  I did these ghouls and the Grymwatch in a single sitting, taking breaks for drying time only.

      He brought his very own packed lunch.
       
      #124:

      Subject #B4C-124 displays elongated limbs on a gaunt frame, and a foul disposition when peckish.
       
      #125:

      Obviously the hero of the group.
       

      A little too fresh for our tastes...

      I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. 
      Dominant paints used:
      Punk rock pink 09286
      Marid blue 89526
      Clear magenta 09098
      Regal purple 09238
      Clear purple 09099
      Nightmare black 09280
      Fair skin 09047
      Dark elf skin 09164
      Pure black 09037
      Pure white 09039
      Let me know what you think!

      From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135.
      A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases.
