Another that bridged the new year. Werner Klocke's Hyrekia, Sorceress. She turned out rather poorly. I got her second hand, and she'd already been primed. There were some defects in the primer, apparently, that really showed up with the paint. Add that to my natural problems, and, well, yeah. Really should've green-stuff'd her all the way down. But didn't. She also looks weirdly eyeless in the photo of her face. I don't do eyes beyond some dotting of sorts, but she looks like one of those thingies out of a Robert Jordan book. So yeah.

 

Grabbed her and started painting because I wanted to paint a white dress. I at least did get a white dress out of the deal.

Thanks for looking. Really rough, even for me, but I figured she'd work for tabletop if an occasion ever arose.

That's what SHE said!  (sorry, terrible, I know)

 

I've had spray primer go horribly wrong on me (Armory primer is the WORST), and it is really frustrating to deal with.  If you're still interested in working on it, I second the idea of trying out a matte sealer and then painting one more layer over top of that and seeing if it turns out smoother.  At least on the dress, where you wouldn't lose tiny details.

If she's saying that, she probably doesn't deserve it.

 

 

A very good shot at what was likely a very long shot.  She'd be welcome at any table of mine.

      Hello everyone, I completed this elegant lady today. I started painting her during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). She was my practice model for Geoff Davis' How to paint hair class and Mike Wellington's Easy Tricks to Improve Painting Skin. 02749, Jade the Dancing Girl was sculpted by Werner Klocke. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint give her a simple 25mm base.

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      I painted her up as a fun project. Let me know what you think. 
       
      I am trying to improve my painting abilities.
       
      The purple marking on her thigh was supposed to be a skull tattoo, it didn't really work as well as I had hoped.

      Her face is way lighter in real life. In the pics she looks like she's got stubble...

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!
