Started painting this one up today to practice shading and highlighting.  I read in one of the tips and tricks threads about using liner for primer on Bones...I am sold.  It makes it so much easier to see the detail without obscuring any of it.  


So far the face and hands got a basecoat and the cloak got the basecoat, shading, and some highlighting done.  I am going to keep working on the cloaks shadows/highlights some more tomorrow.  I may also go a little darker on the skin so that I have some room to highlight without making the face too bright.

I did some more work on Danar.  Things went horribly wrong last night due to a poor choice of color for the shirt/pants.  I tried to use P3's Coal Black but it just didn't work with the cape.  It is a shame because it went on really well.  I then decided to go with a light tan to keep the colors greens and browns.  As I was putting on the lighter color it took on bluish tint that I liked.  I ended up using Aircraft Grey with Ashen Blue for the shadows.  I am not sure if I like it or not.  May redo it using Ashen Blue as the mid-tone.  Also I am not sure what to do about the leather armor.  I want to make the top piece stand out from the chest piece.  I tried to make it a different color brown but it still kinda blends together.  Any ideas would be appreciated.


I also ended up doing a couple passes at the eyes.  The first was after some coffee so I must have been going for that look here:



I went back later today and fixed the eyes.  They look much more proportional now.  Also probably the best non-chibi eyes I have done to date.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
