A fellow player in a Reign of Winter game has been "tooling around"* with an unpainted strumpet miniature. I offered to paint it if she told me what she should look like, and so I was given an unpainted Bones mini and a quick watercolor sketch to work off of. This is the result, after a couple hours of work!
Overall, I'm pretty happy with her! She is not great, but I'm improving. This is also some of my better work on hair, ever. That Jessica Rich DVD from the kickstarter is starting to pay off.
However, I still did just a quick paint up (probably 2 hours...) and the quality needs to be higher. Things I know did not go as planned:
The blending on the dress was incredibly subtle--not sure what I was thinking here, exactly, but the contrast should be way higher.
The blending on the hair highlights looked so much better before it dried. Oops. So mental note: esp. for a display piece, let it dry and then really check it out before you seal it. The transitions are way too abrupt as it stands.
General smoothness of blending everywhere could be improved.
Still on broccoli base. Sad.
Any additional C&C? Beyond the paint scheme, I suppose, since I'm working with a player's desired colors, anyway.

Note: this is a repost! It looks like three posts, two of which I finished writing, all ended up with the same post ID, which caused all sorts of mayhem. Attachments only worked on one of these posts at a time and it looks like all of the tags got thrown together. This should fix the problem...
