Yes, another Gnome.  Who doesn't need more Gnomes??

 

This guy I'm using for my character in 2nd Ed. campaign I'll be playing with some friends.  Should be an interesting contrast with the 5th Ed. campaign I'm running with a different group of friends. It will also be my wife's first time playing D&D at all (she's playing a paladin, and will be painting up 77063: Duke Gerard btw).

 

Here's a quick pic of him straight out of the packaging.

I've since cleaned him up and given him a good scrub.

Love to see what you're going to do with this guy! You've got to be almost out of gnomes after your YOTG entry. I think I'm dubbing January the official "Mini-mini Month!" in that I'm only painting dwarves and smaller. It'll give me a chance to recoup from the last two dioramas! LOL!

So I mean to take a few progress shots through the day today....but that didn't happen.

 

So here he is, base coated (ish), and the face done..

Decided to go with some more vibrant colours that I usually use.  Was fun and I like how he's coming along.

Fun!

 

I need to paint up the two gnomes sitting on my desk for one of my fellow Pathfinder players. He has a gnome alchemist that is like a little Jekyll/Hyde

Got a chance to work on him again tonight.

Other than highlighting his boots and doing a quick base, I think he's almost done. (so point out anything that needs work)

Need to have him sealed and ready for D&D on Friday night, so he needs to get finished tomorrow night.

If I were painting this I might put a little more definition around the eyes, maybe just a line of medium brown at the edge of the sclera.

 

Aside from that he looks great, colorful and full of character.

He's definitely a lot of fun! I still haven't put a brush to Cassie, although I think I have a direction to go in. I have a bad cough and general nastiness as of lately, so I haven't really felt like painting. I'm also out of wet palette papers, which means fighting with, cutting, and trying to flatten the giant roll... but none of that has anything to do with this wonderful little guy! Looks great!

If I could, I would.  ::):

What would happen would be that I'd mangle his eyes, and have to redo them, which would then require fixing all the highlights on his face, which would likely end up with my retouching his hair, his shirt, and maybe a sleeve or two.

I really don't have the fine control to handle anything better than getting the pupils somewhat lined up and around the same size, especially on these wee folk.

I have great motivation to get him done.  He's for 2nd Edition, and is a first level Gnome Illusionist.  5 HP and no real offensive spells....I want to get the fig done before anything kills him!

I cheat with both hands like there's no tomorrow when I do things like that.

 

The way I do it is I have two brushes, a fairly fine one lightly loaded with the color I am working on and a small soft but cheapie brush, clean and good and wet.

 

I do a soft swipe of paint with the brush, and if it is not immediately perfect, I wipe it off with the wet brush. Then I blot the face dry, clean the water brush, wait a moment, and try again.

 

Being able to erase instantly makes a big difference with fiddly bits.

 

(This doesn't work with metallic paints, I feel obliged to say.)

Alrighty, this guy is pretty much done.

I'll need to seal him as he's for game play, but that's tomorrow night.

 

I'm really happy with how he came out, especially considering how little time I actually spent on him. Maybe 5-6 hours, and a lot of that was giving my wife assistance with her fig.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.

      I've had this one in the works for a while. She's a little more cheerful and Art Noveau than most of the rest of my Miskatonic staff, but that's okay! Misk.U. cultivates eccentrics of all types. She seems to be handling the job just fine. And those pointed ears indicate she's already survived a brush with chaos, or perhaps has a little bit of eldritch in her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      Her colleagues are a Stonehaven halfling librarian and a Black Cat librarian/cultist. Gave them both a minor touch-up for this shoot.

      "Fond of bright colors, chiefly green and yellow," as Tolkien described his hobbits.
      Stonehaven does some incredibly character-rich sculpts, and this is one such. This lady is full of vim, vigor, optimism, and a can-do attitude! 
       

       
      I imagine her as maybe the irrepressible kid sister of a grown adventurer, who has heard stories of adventure and wants to be a part of things. (Big sister played by Daschelle, 44009 )

      Blink Berenwicket, Female Gnome by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku# 03732. The armor is painted with some ancient GW green metallic. I experimented with blue metallic on the sword but I'm not overly thrilled with the result but it is good enough to call done :)
