Characters and Fun (October Edition)

Recommended Posts

No commission this month. Yet. @[email protected] I successfully completed the Cleric (Which I got a replacement for from Reaper since the casting was off), the viking, which was my commission (I didn't take a picture before it was returned but he came out fantastic, the halfling with the crossbow is completed, the zodiac, kyrie and the mage are completed. 


NOW For this months, it's a slightly smaller set than last. Primarily because I'm working on my partners gift and probably a few things for contests if this month doesn't bog me down. I also wanted to paint my new Bonesylvanians asap! 




This picture represents classes I am intending to play so these may be for personal use. 


My poor unfocused monk is the one in purple. The fighter is Green and the Warlock will be blue. I haven't decided what I'm doing with that last one yet. 


The last mini I'm working on this month is: post-12705-0-75779600-1413071255_thumb.jpg


This one will be part of a diorama that I haven't fleshed out in my head yet. ^_^

/Queues level up music.


I think I have eyes down. o_o Which puts me one step closer to silver next year. ^_^ Now if I can just stop mucking up skin!!!!!!


And what can I do about this girls finger? It's uh...not quite proportional. I'm sure I can paint it to look normal but I have no idea where to even start with that. I imagine it will take some 'shadow fu' painting. 





I painted the 'armor' leather clothy whatever part with grey liner because I wanted to eventually paint it to have a silken look and to make black lining easier. I then mixed a bit of white with the grey liner for a temporary shadow area. Then I'll glaze and highlight with normal white to eventually incorporate pearl white and a touch of silver to the original grey liner/white in the shadows. 


Edit: I don't think my mother's getting this camera back. Now I just have to make a light box! 


I've worked on most of what I've wanted to do to the skin, but some parts, especially on the back just seem oddly casted. I can't tell if it's supposed to be a design with the cloth or what. It's unfortunate that it's in such a tight space that I'm not even sure I can take a sanding needle to it or a file to 'fix' it.

That Base! It's base day! Here at least. So my Monk has been based and progress resumes. 



My goal was to sort of have a ruins meets nature sort of base. I used my flagstone seppuku stamp with some milliput (I FINALLY MIXED IT CORRECTLY!! /HAPPY DANCE!!) and stamped it. I tried to mold it as close to the cork as possible, but I still have an unnatural seem. I'm not sure if this adds or takes away from it. I may cover it with leaves and foliage to try to hide it. I still have a bit more painting to do on it, but it looks good so far I think.




The next WIP is the Ranger that was sort of a random purchase. I love rangers, loved her pose so I grabbed her. I don't think I'll be going a nature route with her though.




The 'other' bases.


This one was an experiment in water effects with glue. I'm awful at it soooooooo it won't be scrapped but may become a fodder for a familiar. 




WIP of a sandy base. I just..have to figure out the proper shade first. @[email protected] It's gone through a lot of shade transitions....

I stippled green on top of the cork to get that effect. There's very little sculpting besides the tearing of cork. Once the green was dried, I dry brushed the same shade of brown over it lightly. Then dry brushed a brighter green on top of that. It helped give it a tiny bit of depth and variance.


I'm glad you like my base!!!!!! The thought of doing them terrified me for a long time. 


o_o I still haven't branched out very far though.

Miss Melons... you have been bitten by the basing bug!  there is no known cure and soon you will be raiding the kitchen for materials!


Welcome to the club! :upside:



It's actually all thanks to Baugi's basing tutorial he did. It gave me a good bit of confidence to give it a try.

Yep, I think that thread created quite a few basing monsters.


Her eyes are sooo goood! I love your pallet as well. Fabulous!
