Shadowraven reworks a witch


Recommended Posts

yeah. the sheer fabric stuff I've seen has been everything from semi-sheer to "wet t-shirt winner" transparent. I'm going for a semi-sheer here. I don't ever expect to be good enough to pull of the truly sheer stuff. For an amazing example this one from the dark sword website is crazy good but very much NSFW

I don't even need to look. I drool over that individual's painting ability.

Heh. I was thinking "Nylon, Not Nude."

 

Looks like a good start on this one. The Imperial purple triad has always given me fits, too. Lovely color, but I have yellows that are less transparent...

no kidding eh? Fortunatley, there are a few good colours that cover well, which you can then go over with the purples and not have to layer sixteen coats to get it to cover proper. That transparency though does make it layer and glaze very nice though, so it's not that bad a trade in my books.

not that great a shot, but it does show where I ended up with my attempt at sheer stockings

another that shows where things went on the stockings and well everything else.

 

and her familiar. Camera really doesn't like this guy. Clearest shot I have.

Hey!  Lookin' good!

 

My one critique is that (at least from what I can see from the pictures) the skintone area of the stockings seems too small; they actually come across as almost torn-looking to me.  Now, I've never painted sheer fabric before, so I'm kind of shooting in the dark, but I wonder if brushing a little bit of Reaper MSP Dusky Skin (a kind of purplish, pastel skin tone) around the edges of the light spots might widen the sheer effect.

 

Oh, and P.S.:  The pink dice are a great touch!  :lol:

I don't have dusky skin, but I will see what I can do with what I do have. I think you're right though, and the more I try the more I learn, right? 

 

and yeah, if you're going to hang dice on your ride, they gotta be pink

 

edit: and you know, if I can't get sheer, torn would work too with this figure....

      Hello everyone, here are some ensemble pictures of my entry in the "Dia de los Muertos" Sugar Skull Painting Contest. I had simply posted a closeup photo of the skull for the contest. This is the Bones version of 77116, Colossal Skeleton sculpted by Jason Wiebe. This Undead is Huge, 120mm tall, almost 5 inches. Notice I repositioned its arms and removed the shrouds that were hanging between its legs.
       
      The other elements on the base are from Reaper Miniatures as well. There are 77528, Graveyard Ruined Fences by Bob Ridolfi, a 77531, Graveyard Fence Post and 77731, Gargoyle Finials also by Bob Ridolfi, a 77538, Gravestone of Sorrow sculpted by Julie Guthrie and one of the 77534, Tombstones sculpted by Kevin Williams. I used roots, birch tree seed hulls and various synthetic mosses to complete the scene. The base is 75mm (3 inches) wide and was 3d printed. Enjoy!

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.
