I painted her up for my Aasimar White Mage Arcanist in Pathfinder. I was worried having too much bright red, so added some copper. Really wish I didn't. Live and learn. Perhaps when I get better, I'll get another one and give it another go, if she doesn't get permanently killed.

She looks really good, white and red are difficult colors to paint with, but yours look very nice.

Looks good. Is the edge of the cloak freehand or part of the sculpt?

 

Critique if you are looking for it: higher contrast (deeper shadows and higher highlights), with the hair, for instance.

The triangles are free hand. The white on the red cloth on front is part of sculpt.

Thanks for the advice!

 

I don't know if it's the camera, but it's hard to make out the face.  Maybe some more highlighting would help that.

It's a bit of both, but more that I haven't gotten good at making sure I have enough contrast. I will definitely work on getting better at highlighting. Thanks!

Good start on the freehand. Make sure and hit it again, though, for some more consistent coverage. Overall it is decent freehand, for sure, but I think you will be even happier with the change to clean it up even more.

      My first painted miniature of the year, Darius the Wizard.  Hopefully this will get the ball rolling again!
       
      To be honest I am not generally a fan of plastic minis, I grew up in the days when miniatures were almost exclusively lead or pewter and so maybe I am a little biased, however I got this guy free with a recent order and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the new Bones USA plastic.  It feels solid, and is a lot more rigid than some of the other plastic miniatures I've had in the past, which can often be quite soft or even bendy.  The detail seems much more crisp and sharp too.  I think I may finally be converted to the world of plastic minis!
       
      He was painted in an afternoon, whilst the base was made from Sculpy Clay, using balled up tinfoil to give it the stone like texture.

      Such a fun idea for a mini!
      But then you have to paint all the dragon scales.
      I was going for a more Asian skin tone.  I tried to speed through this one since her sword was so bent.

      Another that started as a WIP.
      I was going for an East Indian skin tone.
      I find this figure curious for a mage, with armor and a spear.  And strange scalloped shapes on her back.  The color washes out the difference between the orange and yellow colors, sadly.

      This week I finished "Arakus Landarzad, Wizard" from the "Grey Beards" set in the Bones 4 Core box. I tried a couple experiments with this guy; one was using purple for the shadows on the yellow robes, and the other was using Citadel Contrast Paint to do the gem on the staff.  To read more about it see: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2021/01/arakus-landarzad-wizard-bones-4-figure.html
