Thank you for the suggestion Marsya, I will definitely do that.

 

Well here are the pictures of the Sci-Fi babe all done and waiting for her base. The white is shaded but is washed out in the photos. The guns are silver, adamantine black and gunmetal blue. I also did a glaze of clear blue and hardcoat over the blue metallic to bring the blue out.

You are doing a wonderful job.  Please don't give up!  You can do this!!

I love the colors on the sci fi babe. Maybe a hint more highlighting on the leather coat?  A very narrow bit of something warm like chestnut gold?  The blue on her pants looks perfect!

Thanks everyone. I am my own worst critic so the encouragement means a lot to me.

In addition to her top, her coat is majorly washed out in the photo thus we are not seeing the highlights that are there. It is actually the one thing on her that I am really happy with, to me it looks like oiled leather. I really appreciate the suggestion though.

Progress is being made on the diorama. The actual structure is done and I am very pleased with the floor. I was not sure I could get the look of dark hard wood but I did. A lot has been done on the female mini with her dress being done, the cape has shading but no blending, her hair has some highlight, and the skin has been started. I was not completely pleased her dress as I was doing a dark purple with light purple accents using the same triad and they ended up being too close in tone. But Clever Crow mentioned using the clear purple and magenta on his temple dragon and I had an Aha! minute. So the dress got the clear purple and the accents got the magenta. The picture is not that great, my iPad sucks at taking pictures now for some reason. I tried everything to get a good picture, but nothing worked.

Alright I have a little departure from the lovely ladies and ReaperCon entries. Part of this WIP was Nicodem from Malifaux who is for a friend. He has languished with base coats for a while now but I decided to sit down and finish him. So some quick shading and highlighting plus a base and he is almost done. He looks glossy in the picture as the first clear coat had not dried fully but I wanted to take a quick picture before bed. Tomorrow he will get some dull coat and a few grass tufts and he will be done, finally.

The queen for my diorama is finally done. Her knight is almost done as well. His armor, hair, and face are done. The cloth needs to be blended and the gold and leather are only base coated. I should be able to get everything done by the time I go to bed Saturday, which will leave me with Sunday to relax and clean house.

I don't know if you've thought of it, but I have to strongly recommend painting the back and edges of the wall black. As it is, they look unfinished.

Oh, yeah it is going to be black, I would never leave it as is. Thank you for mentioning it though. I have it set aside and keep forgetting to paint it.

Thanks for the input, the large has been what I had been picturing since the start. So here is another mockup with the large tapestry repositioned. The miniatures are also in their spots and the furniture is in place with a couple of details added. The mins still can be repositioned if you guys think they should.
